I get acrylic nails regularly. This is great for my off-months when I want to give my nails a break. It does a good job filling in my ridges without being too thick or gummy. Great product!

I love this nail product. It’s perfect for when you have accidentally messed up your nails and want to smooth them out before applying top coat to them. It’s super affordable and found easily In most drugstores.

I've recently gotten more serious about keeping my nails in good condition, as I've finally stopped my life-long habit of biting them. However, since it's taken me 21 years to start caring about my nails, they are not in very good condition. They have fairly deep ridges, and are very brittle and dry, and I was growing irritated when I'd give myself a manicure and the ridges would show throw the polish, making my nails look old and dry. I'd heard about this ridge filler treatment, and decided it was worth a shot. I am so happy that I tried it, it works marvelously! I don't have much patience when I do my nails, and I don't like waiting very long for them to dry (I always seem to get an itch somewhere!) and I was very happy to find that this base coat takes seconds to dry--and looks great just on its own, as well! Nail polish looks excellent and shiny on top, there are no traces of the ridges on my nails underneath the nail polish, and they look so professional! My nails also feel much harder and less brittle--much sturdier! I am so much more confident about my how my nails look, and much more invested in keeping them healthy and looking nice now! I am very glad I invested the money into this ridge filler, it is definitely part of my nail care regimin now!

I have pretty deep ridges in my nails - I think it comes from years of biting, followed by several more years of acrylics. When I started doing my own nails, I was looking for something that would basically do exactly what this product says - "Fill The Gap"! So far, so good... provides a solid base for a mani.

This base coat doesn't do anything different than a regular base coat, besides it's yellowy nude color. It takes a while to dry as well. I wouldn't say it's very ridge filling at all, but it works just fine as a base coat. I wouldn't invest any extra money in it because you can get a erred quality base coat for much cheaper somewhere else. essie Ridge Filling Base Coat

Love this product soooo much! I have used this to smooth my discolored, uneven, and ridges on my nail beds and it actually works! It is almost like a foundation for the nails, worn alone it makes my nails look very healthy and hides any imperfections. I have not used any other nail smoothing products so I have nothing to compare it to, but I love this!

Love Essie! Fill the gap is nice because it creates an even coat before you apply your nail polish. It's been sold out on the Essie website but I got mine off amazon!
