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.

I painted a new coat on almost every other day and loved it! Had a great finish even as a single coat!

works great!

This cute little bottle really helped keep my nails from peeling and cracking! I only used 2 coats and the color was perfect. I'd definitely recommend this to all my friends.

Not that great
Sampled

When I got my polish in the mail, the outside was covered in goop - like the polish exploded everywhere in the box. Not a great first impression.

I tried the polish, but today is day two and my nails are already chipping. This product is not effective or worth the money in my opinion.

Not to bad
Sampled

I loved that this was free of chemicals, I am always looking for something that I can use along with my toddler other than PiggyPaint. This was a great find for that!! As far as a base, i didnt use it for that but to see how it looked alone. Not bad, lasted much longer then most base coats. As far as strength, i dont know since my nails are already in pretty good shape. The only issue i had, was it looked as if it leaked in my box-that was not fun!!!

Works!
Sampled

I have extremely brittle nails and have tried numerous nail strengtheners. I've only used this for a couple of weeks and already have seen the difference. My nails are cracking less and there's less peeling. Really excited that I finally found something that works.

Amazing strength and shine
Sampled

Love this product. It gives my nails noticeable extra strength, and the shine lasts for days---much longer than that of many nail colors.

I like this as an "in-between" polish to keep my nails strong and neat looking in between manicures with colored polish.

One of the best samples I've received so far in Birchbox.

Made My Color Last!
Sampled

I was really skeptical. Typically, my nails break and chip easily, and my polish even more easily. I work in a profession where my hands/nails take a beating, and it's hard for them to look nice.

I did my nails, using this product as a base coat and an OPI color and topcoat. The color did last longer than normal (about 2 weeks), and my nails didn't break. Actually, my nails grew out some and seemed healthier overall!

A Great Little Lacquer
Sampled

This makes a great little base coat and would work really well on its own. Not sure how/if it will improve the quality of my nails as advertised, but definitely the stand out from my August birchbox.
