My Favorite Base Coat
This is my favorite base coat and the only one I use now. It dries quickly and I can also wear it alone for a nude look! Love how it self levels also. Great product!

Game changer
I use this as a base coat and it has been a game changer for me. I am a chemo patient and every time I have an infusion, it leaves a groove in my nails. This fill in smooths those groves and finally makes my polish look great. I cannot recommend this highly enough! This is one product that I never want to be without!

does what it should, but.
prefacing this with a note that base coats are so finicky and body chemistry plays a huge role. anyway, this fills really well! self levels beautifully! kbshimmer polish formulas are my favorite. i love clearly on top. i wanted to love this. i've used it twice and both times it was still tacky after 15 mins, so polish just drags. it also chips and peels (on me!) like nobody's business, like ridge filling and peel off base coats had a baby and it was this product. really sad i'm going to have to toss this one. :( but at this price, try it out if you're thinking about it!

Just Okay
I was really excited for this because I wanted a base coat that filled in my nails and stopped them from staining but I just cannot get this to work perfectly as everyone else. It won’t often self level on the nail. Which is okay when I’m wearing an opaque polish but when I wear sheers I feel like I can see where the base coat never leveled out.

Game Changer!
This ridge filling base coat has been a game changer for me! Fillin' Groovy is like a sticky base coat and ridge filler rolled into one. It provides a smooth base with just the right amount of grab to lay the polish down on beautifully! If you've tried other ridge fillers without success, try this one! It's far better than any other I've ever used.

works great
I'd tried a few ridge-filling base coats before this, but they honestly mostly seemed like a scam, to the point where I was wondering if there was something fundamentally flawed with my nail polish application technique.

This one self-levels like a boss, so you actually end up with a nice, smooth surface. Highly recommended.

This Base Coat is so fancy!
I can even wear it like a "nude" nail! It adds a good texture for applying colors on top of and works well on its own with a top coat to prevent the double-sided sticky tape finish (though that's good for attaching little nail decorations before the top coat, too :D)
I'll buy other polishes and the combo top and base coat next time!

I think this one is flawed?
Tried to use it outside, sitting in the sunlight.. the consistency both outside and in a somewhat lukewarm room was that of thick glue. Nothing dried, it tugged on every brush we would try applying nail polish with, even after some hours. In a much warmer room, it did well! Might use this one as its own polish and a top coat over it so any risk of tackiness is nullified. The color is much more gentle off-white like a sheer foundation, and is gorgeous. Might end up liking it more as we get used to it, but for now, 3/5!

Good for grooves
This is my new favorite base coat. I have ridges and grooves and my nails are prone to peeling. This makes everything smooth before putting color on. It's now my go-to, and well worth buying in bulk!

Great base coat
I'd recommend this base coat to anyone, even if they thought they didn't need a ridge filling one.

I love this base! I only use it when I end up with ridges or pits from polish peeling, or on pedicures, but it always smooths my nails right out and gives me a perfect canvas for my polish. Get this and a bottle of Basic Training, then throw away everything else you've ever used!

My new favorite basecoat
I had asked for recommendations for a good ridge filler and several people suggested this one. I'm so glad I tried it! It was easy to apply, filled in perfectly, and dried super fast. I don't know why I would ever use anything else!

Works Great
I sometimes get peeling on the surface of my nail, so I always like to use a ridge-filling base coat for a smooth surface. The main problem I have had with other base coats is slow dry time. Fillin' Groovy, in addition to having an adorable name, dries rapidly and extremely smooth. I change my mani every couple of days, so I can't vouch for the wear time, but I can't remember having a chip while wearing this. Wish I could buy a refill bottle!

Great ridge filler.
I like to use Feelin Groovy when I have nicks or peels in my nails. It makes my polish loom super smooth.

Great Ridge Filler!
I have pretty significant ridges on one of my nails due to trauma to the nail bed. Anytime I wear cremes, you can see the ridges under the polish. I tried Fillin' Groovy, and it completely covered the ridges. I love this product!

Love name of this polish
I wore acrylics for 15 years and and due to either that or because that's just the way my nails are, they are less than perfect. This base coat helps the polish go on smoothly and evenly. It is also not a thick base coat, which I like. It dries quickly and the polish adheres to it. Great base coat, with a great name!
