Absolutely love this product and so glad I invested in it after such a long time.
Have been wearing it under my nail polish for two weeks and my God they are growing strong and very long !
Would highly recommend to those who have trouble with having weak, chipping and peeling nails.
I love this stuff! I've never really been into nail polish, but about 6 months ago I really got into painting my nails. My nails have never been really strong. They are constantly breaking and peeling. I started using this as a base coat about 6 weeks ago and that all changed. I will continue to buy this product until it's discontinued. Here's to hoping that never happens!
Disclaimer: I've been blessed with nails that are naturally very strong and hard, very thick, and grow very quickly.
But as a regular nail polish user, they began to yellow, peel, and break a bit easily after 4 years of constant polishing and removing with acetone. I never used a base coat all those years, huge mistake!
My mom bought this for me after she couldn't find Sally Hansen Invisible (which I use as a top coat) for me at the grocery store. At first I used this as a top coat but once I bought Sally Hansen Invisible as well as Poshe I used this as a base coat. Since then I've seen a difference in the condition of my nails. They're peeling much less now and seem so much healthier.
Dries pretty quickly. This product is very affordable yet effective. Recommended!
This is amazing stuff. I've gone through so many bottles of this, it makes your nails healthier and is SO SHINY and dries fast. Love it.
Good results from this product - strengthened my manicures by providing a base and top coat that dried on hard.
This stuff did make my nails sturdier and protect them pretty well - it worked better than any treatment formula I have ever used. It didn't really do anything to fortify the nails themselves, though, I would say it was just the fact that the lacquer itself is so thick that protected them from damage. Overall, good results, and I am keen to try the Advanced formula.
Only qualm was that it became very thick near the end of the bottle and I had only had it for a few months.
Made my nails weaker, now I'm scared to use it.
I used it alone and also as a base coat. My nails peeled and cracked SO much more.. I'm sad and disappointed, I was really hoping it would work.
I like it as a base coat, but I find that it reacts with some of my polishes as a top coat and turns part of them darker...
AMAZING! My nails were SO paper thin and damaged from previously having had acrylic tips on but this polish really did it exactly what is says; hardened my nails. I was able to bend the tips of my nails before they were so weak and now they are rock solid! Didn't expect this to work this good if at all when I bought it so I am pleasantly surprised!
I took this from my sister last year, and it was amazing! Recently though I ran out, and had to buy a new bottle. The packaging has changed, and I think that the formula has changed too - before it was nice and thick, now it seems to be thinner and doesn't dry as fast. Still has a nice gloss to it though, and I just apply 2 coats instead of 1.
I use it exclusively as a top coat on my fingers and toes, and it makes my toenail polish last for over a month without chipping! I only need to redo my toes when my nails grow out too much and it becomes unsightly.
On my fingers, I normally use it as a top coat to a french manicure, using Sally Hansen "Get Strong" Nail Strengthener as a base coat. It is too glossy and thick for me to use as a base coat, but it works well for a top coat. My only complaint is that it takes forever to dry, so make sure you let your base and colour coats dry completely before applying this! It's not so obvious over a french manicure, but over colour the smudges are more noticeable. I find that my nails last for 4-5 days without chipping, using it as a top coat.
Also worthy of note, as some reviews claim that it contains formaldehyde - the new bottle I bought clearly states "formaldehyde free" on the packaging.
My nails are brittle and break/peel frequently so I picked this up for $2.99 at a local grocery store. This product has definitely helped with the issues I have had and applies as a pretty thick clear coating. My nails feel stronger and have been growing at a faster pace than they normally would.
