I got fed up of my nails breaking up and chipping away after they had grown. My prayer got answered when I came across the nails inc A & E base coat which is manufactured in the U.K. I bought mine from Superdrug for only 49p. This was actually the sale price and the base coat is normally priced at £2 or maybe more depending were you buy it from, so it was a right bargain.
The base coat is creamish in colour therefore it does blend in with my nails when applied. It comes in a thick 8ml colourless bottle and has a silver lid made of thick plastic and is all nicely packaged in a dark pink and black box.

The base coat is meant to be applied to all your nails including toe nails. Its job is to harden your nails so that they don't break easily and helps you nail polish to stick for a long time. Applying the base coat is very easy or you have to do is unscrew the lid and use the little brush attached to it. I recommend that you don't put excess because it will chip away quicker, which is wastage. One touch of the brush is enough when you see yourselves brushing away more than three times, you are just wasting the base coat.
I was really impressed by the base coat results. The base coat did not take long to dry at all and after it dried up I couldn't bend my nails. My nails stay hard for at least a week before I have to change the base coat.

Because I use my hand nails more than my toe nails I have not yet taken off the base coat off my toe nails, suggesting that it does last longer on toe nails. In three weeks I have changed the base coat twice. this is actually less times than when I put my nail polish without any base coat. However, I have realised that to make my nail polish last even longer, I top up the nail polish with base coat which stops the nail polish from scratching or dropping off. For those who like manicures this nails inc base coat can help your manicure to stay on for a long time.

The base coat can be easily removed by any nail polish remover. When I took off mine for the first time I thought it was going to take ages, but it came off instantly without trouble.
I have now been using the nails inc A & E base coat for three weeks and the results are phenomenal, my nails have not chipped away or broke since the day I started using the base coat and they seem to be growing stronger. If you don't want to put a nail polish on top of the base coat you don't really have to because this base coat does leave your nails looking shiny.

I would recommend this base coat to all the ladies or man who want their nails to be strong all the time. This base coat really does work and lasts long. The base coat only comes in a small 8ml bottle but from my estimation I would say it would take a couple of months before I can consider buying a new base coat. The base coat does have a strong choking smell but that shouldn't put you off as the smell is common in many nail products including nail polishes. Moreover your nails will not smell after the base coat has been applied.


---I bought mine from Superdrug am not sure were else you can buy it from.
---It can be used on all nails.
---The base coat is very flammable, so try keep it in room temperature or below.
---If you put a lot of the base coat it will come off quicker than when you apply less.
---If you are going to apply nail polish after the base coat its best you wait for the base coat to dry off.
