Essie Protein Basecoat Reviews

    Not for me

    I have been searching for a great base coat, but this was not it. I have naturally hard, fast-growing nails, but they are very dry and brittle. I also needed a base coat that would protect them from my constant painting. I heard good reviews about this product, so I bought it. Unfortunately, it increased the dryness of my nails, making them more brittle. Also, my nail polish soaked right through ...read morethe base coat and stained my nails. After I stopped using the product, it took awhile for my nails to go back to normal. Now I have over half of a bottle and I don't know what to do with it. — 11 months, 2 weeks ago

    Great base-coat!

    This base coat does exactly what it says it will. It improves the overall strength of your nail, as well as helps with chipping and breakage. Many other basecoats that I have tried haven't lived up to the strength that they have promised, but this one will. It gives your regular manicure a little something extra, and it goes a long way! — 6 years ago
