Okay first things first this stuff works!!!:D I have had it on for a day and I swear my nail have gotten stronger and longer. You can wear this as a base coat for your favorite nail polish or just by itself. I gave this product a 3 rating for price because it was pricey but it was defiantly less expensive then most of the other Nail growth polishes at the store I went to. As I have said in my review on Essie's Mint candy apple polish this nail polish bottle is amazing, I have even dropped it and it didn't break, leak or chip. Yes, I will defiantly buy this product again.:) I hope this review was helpful.
I'm not sure what's in the bottle, but I suspect it may be magic.
While I'm fortunate and inherited the "good & strong" nails from my mum's side of the family, I've alway had a problem with breakage, particularly the sides of my thumbnails. Part of that is because I work with my hands but I've noticed since I started using Grow Faster, my nails are stronger and seem to be growing longer, faster. So much so that I was whining the other night that I had to cut my nails down because it was too hard to type with them. *boo hoo*
I agree that putting the wee little bottle of polish in a comparatively big box is extraneous packaging but it IS recyclable (in most areas).
It's not expensive, I paid about $7 at a local big box retailer- comparable cost to OPI, China Glaze (if it's not on sale) or Seche Vite (on sale) but for my money, it's better quality.
I gave this a try because it's winter and inevitably my hands become dry and chapped and my nails break.
I am so pleased with this. Not only are my nails stronger and longer (just a bit), but they are not breaking. This is huge because I make jewelry. Between the sawing, filing, buffing and chemicals I get my hands into, usually my nails look as awful as my hands.
Currently I have blisters and cuts all over my hands, but my nails are still in pretty good shape, albeit a bit grubby looking from metal dust and etching resist.
Holy shamoly. Been using this 2 weeks now and I can already say this is HG. Plus it works well as a base coat and makes my cheaper colours (essence and SH) last a bit longer.
My only beef is the packaging. It just seems redundant to put this wee bottle in a box that's mostly empty, when essie polishes are just sold by the bottle. Anyway, not a huge deal and I doesn't lose this product any points with me.
I can't say this actually made my nails "grow faster" ...I don't think any nail product can...BUT...this stuff is VERY durable. I use it on my fingernails as a clear polish and it has lasted through many showers and day to day activities without peeling or chipping off at the edges. Just today I was scrubbing something and used my nails to get stuff out of the edges/corners....and my polish is fine. This dries quickly and lasts at least a week and half *the only reason I had to take it off and reapply was because my cuticles needed fixing up and there was about 2mm of bare nail at the base. Great stuff, I will be buying it again when this bottle is over.
