Rimmel Stronger Base Coat Nail Polish Review

Everybody needs a base coat to help protect their nails from the constant change of nail polish and so on... if you think about it our nails go through an awful lot.  I don't know about you, but I change my nail polish at least once a week and it does make me wonder what the harsh chemicals are doing to my fragile nails because of the constant stripping of varnish and reapplication. 

My nails grow very quickly but I find they break easily because they are very flexible and bendy.  I find if I catch the corner of one it will always break leaving me with uneven looking nails which I hate.  Due to this I have tried a variety of products to try an strengthen my nails so when I was looking for a new base coat I was keen to try and find something that help stop my nails from breaking so easily.

The product that jumped out at me was the Rimmel Stronger Base Coat.  This pale pink tinted liquid is said to:
  • Dry harder
  • Double duty base coat
  • Strengthen
  • Protect
It seemed this base coat had everything I needed and would also save me time as I wouldn't need to apply a strengthener as well as a base.  However, after using this base coat for a year or possibly even longer I haven't noticed a difference at all.  Whilst the Rimmel Stronger Base Coat does protect my nails well against colour, unfortunately, it hasn't made any difference to the strength of my nails.  This is really disappointing as I have used this product on a regular basis for a long period of time so I would have expected to see good results.

The Rimmel Stronger base coat has lasted ages.  I am still using the same bottle I bought all that time ago and I still have the majority of it left.  If you're looking for a good base coat then I would definitely recommend this one.  It does it's job and doesn't have that horrible, strong chemical smell some varnishes have but if you are looking for something to strengthen your nails this product isn't the one.

What products do you use to strengthen your nails?

    1. Ooo I haven't tried Nail Envy. I think it's one of those products where you buy one and use it for ages and don't really try lots of new ones because you don't see it.
