First Base Base Coat
Rated 3 out of 5 by Mrsreed2008 from Not the right base coat for me. I was provided this product free of charge to try it. When applying this base coat I noticed it was not smooth. I have ridges on my nails, and I was hoping it would smooth the nail bed before applying Essie polish on top. When applying the polish on top of this base coat, it bunched and did not leave a smooth application. I thought maybe it was the polish, and not the base coat so I applied on one hand only to compare the results. The polish only side went on smoothly in comparison. With respect to lasting power, the hand with the base coat starting chipping around day three - whereas the hand without was chipping less than 24 hours after application. It certainly helped with the staying power of the polish, but I would not purchase this myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tonbot7 from It works! I have very brittle nails that often make nail polishes chip quicker than they should. When I use this base coat it creates a great foundation for the nail polish to sit on top of. I can really tell that it is cleaning and prepping the nail,and its a bonus that it dries very quickly so you are ready to paint in no time! I will continue to use this product. This product was sent to me complimentary for testing and reviewing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jlemon from a staple! I love this base coat. It makes my polishes last longer even if I don’t use a top coat. First Base is really fast drying and easy to apply so it’s a staple for me and my nail routine. I don’t have the smoothest nails but this does a great job providing a nice smooth canvas for my polish even though the consistency is quite thin. (I received this product to test and review.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nikki from Works just great This base coat does its job, make sure to clean your nails before applying. My nails are fairly weak, they bend and are rigid but this base coat smooths it out. It works best with other Essie products. I received this base coat in the mail for free in exchange for my honest opinion on this product as a review and to enter in a #contest

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fifi from Amazing I received this product for testing purposes from influenster and fell in love with it. The key to making any nailspolish last is a good base coat and this one is perfect. It dried fast and created an even surface for my nail polish to sit on. Overall it does its job and is a great addition to any polish routine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by karmann from Great! I was sent this product for review purposes, from influenster! This nail polish dries very quickly and has great coverage, my nail polish hardly chips after using this, since i rarely use base coat it makes it so that my nail polish doesnt stain my nails either!
