I'd die without itI truly wish there were a way to notify customers if a product was being discontinued cause then I'd buy a bunch. Just got another two (just incase). I had to choose millionails at cvs because it was the closest to this in my opinion but the color is clear and the color this gives to the nail is elegant. The reason I purchased this was because one day after months of having constant painted nails I didn't get a chance to repaint them after removing the paint. The pain my nails were in was so disturbing, so I came and found this! Blocking access from the air certainly creates problems and the protein helps to return some normality to the outside contact with the nail. Highly recommended.

MehThe usual coat. I don't believe into strengthening something that is dead, and our nails are made of dead cells, so yeah. Tried it to see if it is any different from other bases, but no, same thing.

3 in 1Like this product, it's a filler, a base coat, and can be used alone for a medium to matte shine. (for matte shine, apply one quick layer)

Essie is greatJust received this a couple weeks ago and have used it a couple times. Right now I have it on with nothing else. I didn't have time to paint, but at least got this stuff on in anticipation of painting a color.... and luckily it looks very nice all on its own. It makes my nails look naturally shinny. I even filed my nails a bit and it didn't come off. I like the protein added and hope it helps but it not the reason I bought it. I found myself without a base coat and quick ordered this from Nordstrom.com LOVE the free shipping no what I order. It keeps me coming back time and again. Thank you NORDSTROM.

Don't forget this one too!Get this one because it fills in all the imperfections. Then when you apply the nail polish it makes for a perfect smooth canvas without any ridges. Strengthens the nail and keeps it happy and healthy. I absolutely cannot stand yellow nails slowly chipping underneath from just wearing nail polish and no base or top coat-so if you're going to do it right use this 1st. I painted my nails sat and its mon now and I'm suprised how well they are holding up-Are these fake nails? lolz...Oh and Get the Top Coat too.
