Product Review: B-Stronger Base Coat by LynBDesigns

Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have a review of the B-Stronger base coat by LynBDesigns. As a self professed aggressive polisher, I am constantly on the hunt for nail strengtheners to help protect my natural nails from damage, particularly peeling. About a year ago, I started experiencing peeling due to dehydration from constant acetone usage. I started trying all kinds of products to help with it including OPI Nail Envy (expensive!) and the only thing that I found to help was Nail Magic. I really wanted to find something indie made that would work just as well. Enter: B-Stronger base coat by LynBDesigns! 

I've been using B-Stronger for about a month now. I wanted to really use it before making a determination on its effectiveness. The positives to this base coat are that it has little to no smell which is something I cannot say for the commercially produced nail strengtheners and it actually helped with some brittleness and peeling that I had begun to get due to not using a special base coat for a while. It has a bonus upside too - it actually prolongs the wear time of a mani! Many of the strengtheners that I have used don't do anything for wear time but B-Stronger does. To test its capabilities, I used it on my mama's nails. She has acrylics so she didn't need it for strengthening purposes but she works a job where she uses her hands constantly and they can take a beating so I knew it would really put B-Stronger to the test. Typically when I do her nails, I have to redo them every 3 days due to tip wear and chipping. The photos below show 1 week wear time using B-Stronger as the base coat. 

As you can see, she doesn't even have tip wear! I've tested B-Stronger for wear time on my natural nails with similar results, although the longest I've worn it is around 3 days because I choose to change my mani that often or more. This base coat has officially reached holy grail status for me and I hope LynBDesigns always has it in stock because it'll be the only base I use, probably for forever!

If you want to pick up B-Stronger or any other LynB products, head over to her SITE on Etsy. You can also follow LynBDesigns on Instagram for more information on releases and new collections!
