Dreams Nail Lacquer Calcium Base Coat

We don’t like to call our nails “weak”—rather, we prefer to think of them as “growth-challenged.” Fortunately, now that we have this fortifying nail enamel, we no longer have to deal with such derogatory descriptors, The calcium-enriched formula strengthens nails and prevents telltale yellowing. Not only that, but the fast-drying lacquer also works as a mani-extending base coat.

needs a longer brush, but overall good

I am constantly washing my hands due to working in healthcare and my nails are terrible. This did help stop some of the peeling that I have had, but it did chip/lift some after a day and a half. I would have to remove it with a moisturizing nail polish remover as bacteria could get under where it lifted, and then reapply. I liked the slightly white color as I feel that it makes me look like I have a tan(I wish!), but I do wish the actual brush was longer as it is hard to get much past the middle with it sitting upright.

Liked this a lot!

I have very thin, brittle, pitiful nails, and I really liked this! The sample size is plenty to try several times, and I am pleased with it! Will buy.

I thought it was a cute little bottle and the polish went on well but I think I could get something like this at Target.

Great stuff

I don't really know how much the calcium helps since I have strong nails already, but using it as a base coat actually did help my polish to last longer!

Loved this product!

This product worked wonders for my nails! My nails usually break easily and are very thin. After using this product for a short amount of time my nails seem to be in a much better condition, harder and stronger!

Happy to Find this Base Coat!

I really like this product. I dropped something heavy on my big toe a little while ago and have been dealing with a bruised and ridged toenail ever since. This base coat covers well, allowing for a smooth polish, and I also feel like this base coat is helping the damage subside on my toe. I'm definitely considering buying a full-size bottle once my sample runs out!

Goes on easy, dries fast. Using this has made my polish last longer.

While I enjoy nail products, I'd much rather have a new color than a treatment. My nails have a pretty decent density. I'll continue to use this until it's gone, but for the moment, I don't have a reason to repurchase this.

Pretty!

I used this as a base coat on my pedi and the only coat on my fingernails. Its a really pretty natural color on its own and after a week, my pedi hasnt chipped. I am a happy camper!

Love that this product is "three free". I am pregnant and very careful about what I put on my nails. Finally a nail product without those chemicals that actually does what it says!
