Rated 1 out of 5 by LaBionda Very Disappointed.
I love all things Nail Inc. I've so many shades, textures & glitters etc.
They are quality, paint on so easily & accurately thanks to the new shape brush & unlike many makes of nail lacquer the shade you see in the bottle is the actual shade on your nails after only two coats!!
Oh & as an added bonus the price paid at QVC is a fraction of what it would cost to purchase direct from Nails Inc, altogether brilliant!! So I was keen to try the Nailkale products ( I must confess I've used OPI Nail Envy forever, but it's the only item I've been unfaithful to Nails Inc with!!!). I'm fortunate & my nails grow quickly but become hard & brittle & the Envy made them flexible. I've been using this duo since it was released & sadly have to report that my nails have never been in such a poor state, even with using lashings of oils etc. They are hard, snapping off low down on the nail plate, have no flexibility & instead of being a beautiful long uniform length which I can show with pride, I'm ashamed of them.
The only difference to my routine is the Nailkale.
Should have stuck to what I know works for me. We are all different but I'm so disappointed & upset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nailsincfanatic Fabulous Base and French
Nail kale is absolutely fantastic. What a wonderful invention by nails inc. My nails have been transformed by using these products. The Base coat is fantastic and the illuminator gives a truly healthy look to the nail leaving it looking natural. I build up the tip of the nail to give a French. Perfect. I buy this in bulk as it is my 'go to' collection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by WantedToLikeIt worst base coat I've used
I bought the base coat because I thought it will help strengthen my nails, as I wanted to grow them longer than usual. After 2 months of using it, my nails look terrible, as if the life was sucked out of them, they're so dry as I never had them before and started to exfoliate really badly. As consequence, now I have them short and in a bad state.

Used both products now for 2 months and looked well after cuticles also. Nails do not seem to get stronger, in fact they are ripping and splitting more than before. The Illuminator has a blue shine to it which highlights the nail but does not look very natural. Redeeming feature is the brush and the look of both products in the bottle, otherwise totally overpriced for not even remotely doings its job.

I can only remark on the Nailkale which is useless. I understood it would "feed" my drying nails. Instead of which they split and flake now. Definitely would not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CardiffGal Wow! Love this duo.
I watched the live demo using the Illuminator to make a french manicure effect and thought I'd give it a go.
Was completely surprised at how easy it is to do and the results are very professional. It's also shown on the video clip - you just 'dab' the illuminator onto the tip of each nail. It doesn't need to be perfect.
Interestingly after a day the base coat and illuminator seem to have 'sunk into' my nails. This isn't a criticism - my nails look as if the white tips are natural and the nails have a healthy shine as if I'd buffed them for hours - it doesn't look like nail polish.
Lovely brush which is very easy to use and the police itself has a consistency of a treatment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by savagegarden999 great first purchase
my nails have weakened over time and the nail kale was recommended to me. I applied 2 coats of this followed by 2 coats of the illuminator and my nails were totally transformed. A really nice shine and even though the illuminator is white in the bottle, it doesn't look "white" on your nails. Really pleased with these products

Rated 2 out of 5 by Angel2112 Poor Results
On the plus side the Illuminator really does brighten and whiten my nails however it has little staying power. Sadly both products made my nails split and peel really badly. They ended up in much worse condition. Won't be buying Nails Inc again.
