Until recently, I've had my nails very long - almost too long, and I think this base coat had a lot to do with keeping my nails strong enough to grow so long and maintain that length for weeks (until I had a couple accidents and finally chopped them all down short). I also wanted to add that when I'm not wearing nail polishes, I will still wear a layer of this bast coat on its own because it's super shiny! Normally I change my polish color every other day or so, so my nails get a fresh application of the Nail Rebuilding Protein base coat quite often.
