I was hoping for a product to help nourish and revive my nails between gel manicures. Opi Gel Break Serum Base Coat seemed to hold promise. The iridescent, milky polish does not apply smoothly, but instead results in a streaky, uneven finish. I don't find that it does anything to help heal or improve my nails. Applying color polish over this base provides patchy results at best. Removal requires acetone remover which further dries the nails. Much as I wanted to love this product it turned out to be a no go for me. I'll stick with OPI's Nail Envy between my gel manis!
