I love this stuff! I've been using it on and off for about 4 years and I recommend it to everyone. My nails stay hard and they grow incredibly fast.

I love this stuff. I use it as a base coat, let it dry and then apply polish (or not) and then Orly Calcium Shield as a top coat and my weak, much-bitten nails have been steadily improving.

I think this is a very good product. It does not peel off like most other nail strenghtheners that I had previously tried. I'm halfway through the bottle, and my nails look great. I will definitely purchase again.

I didn't think this product lived up to its promises. It was actually kind of a waste- it didn't do anything. As a clear nail polish, it's nice, but don't expect it to prevent chips, breaks, or make your manicure last any longer than it normally would.

Why don't more people talk about this product?! It's great, can be used as both a base and top coat. Or 2 coats of this on its own will give your nails a nice shine. Doesn't chip for days, this baby lasts! :)

I bought this as an alternative to Nailtiques Formula 2, which I find pretty expensive. The Orly is pretty much the same, and I had very similar results. My nails, which I have bitten on and off forever, grew long, strong and healthy. This is a great product, available at the drugstore, for a fraction of the price of Nailtiques.
