I'm a nailbiter who is trying to grow her nails and quit the habit. I'm using Mavala (bitter polish) to help me cut the habit, and wanted to try something to encourage my nails grow faster and stronger. Based on the positive reviews for this product, I went out and bought this. I also got sucked in by the packaging which says "30% longer nails in 5 days or your money back!!!"
Well, I'm in marketing, so I should have known better. I give this product 2 lippies because it may be helping the nails grow slightly (hard to tell) but it certainly hasn't done what it claims on the packaging, at least for me, even though I've following the instructions to reapply every 2 days! I wish I'd tried it on one hand and left the other without to see if there was a difference. Honestly, my nails appear to be growing about as fast as they always have, and aren't any stronger.
Too bad as it seems to work well for a lot of people on here!
This stuff is insane. I didn't think it was going to work, but it made a huge difference for my nails. Longer, healthier, stronger, you name it--and I'm a nailbiter. I'm always amazed at what they do for my nails.
It does peel pretty easily, especially once you've got lots of layers on, so I took off a point for that.
HG!!! My nails are heallthy thanks to this maximum growth treatment!! Sally's nail polish products are great too!!
I bought this after reading reviews here and in a month of using it regularly I'm disappointed. First time it seemed to help but it only seemed because my nails still peel and break easily so I guess it does nothing. Also, it peels off too quickly and doesn't make these 5 days it is supposed to stay on.
LOVE this stuff--got in a french manicure set and use it by itself all the time as a top coat-makes nails stronger and super shiny! I do apply it every day and it dries quickly too.
I guess I am the dissenting opinion here. :( I found that this chipped and peeled far too easily. It has a nice gloss, but other than that, I didn't see any results worth reporting.
I got this in a Sally french manicure kit. (I still couldn't get the manicure right, even with the white pen.) I use Nail Envy to protect my nails but was out. Digging around, I found this and started using it. It has well surpassed my expectations. This is the first Sally product that has worked for me. I rate it right up there with the Nail Envy because it protects and keeps my nails nice and shiny. Even though I am applying every day it has not chipped or peeled like most products do. Great stuff!
Put simply this works! I've tried other so called 'growth' nail polishes over the years and have found that the majority of them leave my nails more brittle and flaky than when I started out. Not this one. I've been using it every other day for the last two weeks and the results have been amazing. My nails are a lot longer and stronger than they were and aren't flaking anymore. I'll continue to use it and see if my nails continue to improve, but so far I'm really pleased.
It works. It really does. For me, it takes longer than the reported 5 days to notice results, but I do notice longer (not thicker, mind you) nails. Apply in nice, thin layers. It gets air bubbles rather easily. Great buy-good choice!
I had the most beautiful nails in the history of my entire life after using this. I've always had thin, brittle nails that break really fast. Now with this, I can wash my fingers in soap without worrying that my nails will chip off. And they grow super fast too!
