After a terrible nail fail left my nails splitting halfway up the nail bed and neon yellow stained nails, I went to the local pharmacy and got a bottle of this.Pros:* Protein based strengthener which works well for me.* Super shiny* Makes my nails feel stronger. It leaves a stretchy bendy finish on the top. It peels off some after a few layers when I file my nails. I just remove it and start over when I plan to file my nails down.* No new splits!* One peely split on left hand middle finger has almost been glued down by the treatment. It should be out to the free edge in a few more days so I can file it all the way off.* A finger that is notoriously peely for me has NO splits or peels after using this for a week. It looks so nice! I am not used to that.Cons: * I have had trouble using this as a base coat. It works best for me to just use it alone. This is a con simply because my nails are stained.* The 3 day claim on the bottle didn't really change my nails. One of the splits I am growing out now happened immediately after the first 3 day cycle when I tried to use color as well on my nails. I decided to use nothing except the treatment until all my nails are split free. Then I will try it as a base coat again.* The brush is super long and narrow. It makes application a bit of a pain.

This really didn't help strengthen my nails at all. I used most of my bottle. To give it a fair chance. Was using it as a base coat or alone. It really did nothing for my nails.

PROS: -hardens your nails-makes nails look shinyCONS:-does not do what it claims it does-bubblesEvery winter my nails become very dry, brittle, and will split non-stop. Using this did not improve my nails at all. I've tried it for two winters already and my nails will continue to dry out and peel. I followed the directions and put on new coat every 2 days, however, the second coat always bubbled up like crazy leaving a textured look on my nails. Odd. Also the formula always got really sticky so it was difficult to put on a thin layer. For the price, about 13-15$ CDN at a drugstore, definitely was not worth it.

I had acrylic nails on for a while and when they came off my nails were brittle, peeling and very weak. I'd heard great reviews on this product and decided to give it a try. Worst $20 I have ever spent!I used the product like directed, once a day and after a month I noticed no results. My nails were still brittle and peeling as well as being weak and breaking very easily. I started to use it as a base coat and noticed my nail polish would chip much quicker with this as a base.It has now been sitting in a container for several months and every time I look at it I am reminded of the failure it was

So I started a nail growth journey because my nails were in horrid condition..super short and peeling all the time. I decided to try to only wear a treatment on my nails for one month and follow a strict nail regimen. I bought this because I heard it was great for peeling nails. Two of my nails peel very badly and my other nails, once I get any kind of growth, they start peeling. This definitely stops the peeling right away. The bottle says to use every other day..instead I use it every day for 3 days straight then every other day the next 4 days. At the end of the week I take it all off and start over. I have done this for one month and my nails are noticeably better! They don't peel and have growth quite a bit..awesome!Some reviews say it peels off easily..I have NOT had this problem at all..maybe they are using too thick of coats?..The bottle does say to use THIN coats so you have to follow the instructions regarding that..I now use this as a base coat and it works great..Will continue to use and repurchase.

I have naturally long, strong, healthy nails that always look fabulous...on my left hand. Since I am right handed, the nails on this hand tend to peel and then break especially on my index finger. I couldn't grow a long nail on my index finger for almost a year. And it would always look silly, because my left hand looks like I have acrylic or gel nails. I got a coupon for this treatment and I wasn't expecting anything from it, I bought it as a base coat. I apply 1 layer once a week as a base coat and I can see the difference. My nails are finally the same length. I'm not sure if it works for everyone, but it really helped me. I do recommend this product.

WOW. Just wow!! This is the best nail product I have ever used, bar none.My nails have been peeling like a mofo lately. I had a beautiful natural manicure that I worked really hard on and my friends all went squee over. For the first time in my life my nails were naturally stunning. And then my boss asked me to pack boxes for a week. My nails snapped off in short order and dried up so badly that NOTHING would remoisturize them. Nothing. They peeled, and peeled, and peeled some more and my cuticles went ragged. I went from having model hands to having tips like a bag lady. It was horrible!!! I had to clip everything off multiple times because of the flaking. I rubbed lotions of all kinds on and nothing helped. I tried a topcoat to stop the peeling, that didn't work at all, it just peeled off the next day. My nails have been a mess for eight weeks with no help in sight.I bought this on a whim when I went to find the blue SH strengthening gel thinking that the gel would give me some moisture and relief from peeling so I could grow my nails back out again. I saw this and thought, Why Not. I bought both.I applied it every other day three times, three coats in six days, after clipping everything off and starting with nothing AGAIN. I also applied the gel for three days.I have no tips but what I DO have are shiny, hard, gorgeous little jewels that, as they are growing out, show no signs of peeling. This stuff didn't even start chipping until day 5 and then it was minimal and because it's clear you can't even tell and it was only on the tips, just barely, and only on my thumbs because I used them to open cat food cans. This treatment also doesn't shrink back immediately from the tips like Seche Vite does. So far so good!I removed everything and started over last night because I have an event to go to and wanted what I do have to look perfect. I still don't have any real tips yet but I love how shiny and hard this makes my nails look, like I do have some sort of manicure. I soaked, removed, clipped cuticles, soaked some more, dried, and applied two coats of this.This stuff is just flat out **awesome**. It is hard as he11 and oh so shiny! My tips are just barely starting to grow back and I am not seeing any flaking! I will add another last coat before my event tonight for extra shine and hardness. This stuff dries relatively fast too so no worries there as long as you are careful. My look right now is formal enough for an event but is great for daytime too. I am so happy with this, I think it literally saved my nails - and in a few weeks maybe I'll be able to have real tips and my done up look back again!This is fantastic used alone but I suspect would make a fantastic bottom AND topcoat too. Seche who??

I am not one to be easily disappointed by products, but I did not like this one bit. I had nails looking a bit worse for wear, so I thought I'd give it a go. I swear my nails are worse now than they were before I bought them. And for the first time in my life, when I painted my nails with this as base coat, they went yellow. I thought that's what this was supposed to prevent! I went out and bought a new base coat/strengthener, and this one will probably go in the bin, which is such a waste of money. I might use it on my toes, just so I don't feel wasteful...
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
