I was not too sure about purchasing this, I believe it was $24 USD so it was a small splurge. I am entirely impressed by the results I get. I would not necessarily agree it gives you a full on french manicured look, but it makes your nails look strong, healthy, clean and buffed. It lasts forever and even if it were to chip no one could notice. I recieved a plethora of compliments on how healthy my nails looked, I think the color of this makes your nails look so much better- this to me is not just a glorified top coat it is a secret nail potion.
I have to say, Dior is rocking it with the Glow line. I've gotten to the Glow line by trying the Nail Glow first. I was searching for an alternative for Pink Gel Coat because it had confusing reviews. Recently I haven't been able to use nail polish on my nails because I haven't had the time. This product is like magic, it's the ultimate my-nails-but-better product. I love it's naturally pinkish hue. Also I've been using it for the last 3 weeks and I can confidently say that I believe leaves enough room for the nail to breathe because I haven't experienced any yellowish tone on my nails using this. I take it off and reapply it on weekends. This is the best product for those don't want to polish their nails and still want that sort of well-groomed look.
Pricey but absolutely worth it. I have quite white tips naturally and like gives them a beautiful pink manicured look in two swipes. Sets hard, doesn't chip and give that effortless well-groomed look. Love it, love it love it.
Makes my nails look gorgeous, extremely long-lasting (doesn't chip or peel AT ALL). This is some expensive clear nail polish but I swear it's worth it. There is a slight pinkish tint that doesn't really show up on me but that's okay. Dior describes this as an "instant French manicure effect", well it is NOT that. But it does make my nails look shiny and polished, and they grow out stronger and harder when I use this consistently.
Excellent brush with this one. Wide, tapered, flat, and stiff. Application could not be easier. I wish every bottle of nail polish I own had this brush!
I love the subtle and sophisticated effect this gives my hands. It's pricey but I will definitely buy it again.
Holy cats! Super-pricey but, in this instance, you really do get what you pay for. I apply two light coats of this just once every two weeks (only because by that time my cuticles need some pushing down and nails trimmed a bit). Does not peel, flake, or budge AT ALL, even if your hands are constantly in the water (washing, pool, dishes). Even better than my go-to for years, Sally Hansen Hard as Nails clear (in the round bottle). I would 100% absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants longer, stronger nails with no fuss.
I have fast growing nails and have always kept them pretty long and shapely since I was a kid. I'm a working professional who always likes to look polished, so I prefer not to wear my nails bare, but at the same time, I don't have time to always do manicures. Despite having a huge stash of nail polish, I usually just find myself wearing my nails with clearcoat or going with a coat or two of a light or translucent pearly/pinky shade -- darker shades just chip on me so fast, and I'm always too lazy to remove chipped polish until weeks have passed. If you are as lazy as I am about doing your nails, you will love Dior Nail Glow as much as I do. This is a no-fuss no-muss nail brightener that is fool-proof and so versatile. This is a dream product for me and gives me the glammed up effect I want with minimal effort and maintenance. This is by no means a french manicure in a bottle, but this is the one polish I can put on a coat or two and look really, well, polished! (no pun intended ;-)). In the past, my solution to amping up bare nails was to throw on a coat of clear coat or a coat of a light pearly shade, I would much rather throw on a coat of this -- same time and effort required but this looks so much better and sophisticated. And the best part is as it wears off and chips away, it is not unsightly at all ... the tips wear off first and the rest of the nail still has a bit of a clear shine to it. I just love this product. If I could only have one nail polish in my stash, this would be it!
This is a pure indulgence purchase - I didn't need it and I certainly didn't want to shell out the bucks for but it makes me happy. This is great if you like to rock natural nails often or you're in between manicures and need to something to tone down staining. It's an instant enhancer. It makes your nails look younger, fresher and healthier. It's not a french manicure in a bottle. It's not a treatment. It won't improve growth or remove stains and the effect will go away once you take it off. Hopefully by then, you are left with healthy new growth.
I've used this on normal and stained nails. It works best on unstained nails and you see the effect best in natural sunlight (or UV light). It is a glowy, cool-tone translucent pink polish that enhances the natural pinkness of your nails while neutralizing some of the natural yellow seen especially in our tips. It doesn't make your tips whiter, but it makes them brighter. It helps on stained nails but it's not a miracle worker. You might still see yellow peaking through.
I love the wide tapered brush. I do two coats on natural, bare nails. No base, no top coat. That's what is instructed. Sometimes I'll put Seche Vite over it but it seems to last longer on me without it a top coat. You can play around with it and work this over a french manicure or colored polish but just be sure to put a sealing top coat on first, let it completely dry, then apply Nail Glow over it so you won't contaminate its magic. This wears extremely long for my nails. I can wear it for a week, sometimes longer, without it chipping or peeling. The great part is that no one will even notice when it does.
CHEAP ALTERNATIVE: Essie Cherry Pop #358 (permanent color). It's not going to give that glow/brightness that the Dior does but it enhances the nail in a similar way for a much cheaper price.
Love it for the quality of the product. I used to buy only the essie clear polishes but they always chipped the day after. This so far has not chipped one bit. You can tell the quality is there as it looks natural but elegant.. I recommend for light skins because my mom tried it out (she is tanner than me) and it showed up clear on her with no color...
New HG nail brightener. This is the highest end & most expensive nailpolish I've ever bought (as well as Dior Gel Coat, each $26 from Sephora after tax), but it's entirely worth it & will absolutely buy again (assuming it's not sold out, as it tends to be HTF). I had to wait a while until Sephora was able to restock. This is the only transparent optical nail brightener (w/a gentle pink tint) I have ever seen that grips tightly to nails & doesn't chip, peel or lift off upon water exposure. All the other similar-type products I've tried always failed in the durability dept & were always disappointing in that aspect, even though I continued to use them - I love their effect but my manicures would never last long, sometimes not even a day. Zeva is a brand that actually resists water pretty well & therefore lasts a longer time, but this is also a somewhat HE product I can only get online & the tint is more blue-lavender than Dior's healthy pink effect. I like both tint results (though my higher preference leans toward blue).
While my nails have a natural look w/this polish, not a glamorous manicure or anything, it has gotten my hands noticed by several ppl since I started wearing it (even children). It makes nails look really healthy, youthful, vibrant, naturally pinked, & beautifully neutralizes yellow stains not only visually but literally - when I take it off after a few days' wear, any yellow stains I had before are absolutely gone. I love optical brighteners like this! Reacts w/light to give a subtle glowy effect (& actually glows white under blacklight). Even used as a basecoat this product makes my color manicures last days longer than normal (I've gone up to a week until regrowth is too obvious). My nails don't get stained by the polish color.
I'd like it to cost less, but I'll gladly pay the price for this incredibly effective & durable product. I love that I can change my manicures much less often than I used to. I like that the silver cap is made to pop off for easy polishing & clicks back on securely - excellent quality packaging. Flat rounded-tip brush is a bit large for me (small nail beds & short nails) but I think most women would like it - similar to OPI's ProWide brush.
