Rated 1 out of 5 by aerineth CAUSES peeling instead of preventing it!
I'm a big fan of the original formula, so I thought I would give this version a try because I have problems with peeling and I thought I'd see how the formaldehyde-free version held up.
This stuff is TERRIBLE!
First I tried it as a base coat the same way I had used the original formula. Everything applied as normal and I had a lovely manicure - for a total of maybe 3 hours. After that, the polish started popping off nail by nail in one piece like Lee press ons! I lost 5 nails worth of polish that way before I could remove it properly and the surface of each one was peeled and damaged from the pull of the popped off polish.
Since I didn't have time to re-do a full manicure, I thought I would try the formula one more time as a stand alone product. I applied it exactly as instructed over clean, dry nails, and STILL the polish came off the same day! It didn't pop off in one piece as it had before, but in a matter of hours the edges were chipping and flaking off bits of the product everywhere!
I really regret purchasing this. The original formula works just fine, but this formulation was so terrible I'm hesitant to spend any money on the brand for a while.

I have thin week nails that peel. I was constantly painting my nails and after 4 weeks with no sign of improvement I gave up. The consistency was sooo thick so after two coats it took a super long time to set. Over priced too.
