I bought it very skeptical, but I really like it. You see I have the huge problem that no matter how good or bad is he nail polish I use it will fall of my nails in no more than 2 days. So since I've been using this as a basecoat, my nail polish last almost 6 days, of course I use my hand a lot, so I crash my nails into everything, so 6 days for me is a lot. I will buy this product again. Oh, it hasn't dried out mu nails!!
