I think this actually works!

I'm usually a sceptic when I see all these claims about things repairing your nails and whatnot but this seemed to make a difference. My nails tend to peel (I'm anemic) and this was great over them! They grew to a nice length without splitting!

I bought this in "Shimmering Lilac" and I love the colour. It's actually something that works in a pretty colour whereas a lot of these nail repair things are sold clear. I found that it lasted ages and took forever to chip!

I really liked this product.

I'm not sure what's up with my nails, but they've been getting super brittle lately. It's only been after I started to use this brand's line of hard as nail polishes often.

I get the extremely chunky glittery kind.
They work really well, for the few shades I got, but my friend wasn't so lucky. Her colors needed tons of layering, but mine were fab. I love the shades for the price you get.

But I just need to check out what's causing my nails brittle-ness. Because I never have problems with them breaking off or chipping as much as now..

I was having terrible trouble with splitting nails, due to cold weather I am sure. I was using cuticle cream , lotion, nothing helped. I tried the tinted Hard as Nails and it is wonderful. I dont like nails polished so it gives a nice natural tint and they look great, no peeling. They are very strong now. I used this back in the day and so glad its still out there. DIrt cheap also like 3.00 .

I LOVE this product. I always wear it and apply 2 coats. Whenever I put it on, it makes my nails super hard. My nails chip really easily when it's bare. Before I got into nails, I used to always cut them so that there's no white parts, but now that I'm trying to grow my nails out I haven't realized how long it takes & how hard it is. Even though I have this polish on, my nails still KIND OF chip. I have a problem with peeling nail polish off when I get bored and my nails chip easily whenever I peel it off so it's not the polish's fault.

EDIT: I take that back. It easily peels off, and goes on too thick most of the time even if I try putting on thin layers. It chips easily, and when it chips off my nails chip almost directly after that. I'd only use this for top coats when I don't want to waste my nail magic. :/

I usually only wear clear nail polish on my hands, and this is the one i go to. I have the one with the hint of pink color, with a nice natural shine. Works great as a top coat for my toenails too, which i do use colored nail polish on. I would have gave it 4 lippies, but it does sometimes chip easily if you only wear one coat.

I own and enjoy many different shades of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails nail polish. One of my faves is #54 Heather Silk. It is a cool shade of medium pink that looks fantastic for daily wear to work that is neither to obvious or obnoxious. Plus it looks great on my cool pale skin tone.
Personally I find Sally Hansen nail polish overall to have easy application, tolerable drying wait times between coats, incredible shine, and decent durability. I'm hard on my hands on a daily basis, therefore I'm use to chips emerging within a few days.
I do like the colour selection, the 'nylon' added to the polish which I believe helps my brittle nails, and price of this product, therefore will continue to purchase this line.

This is by far my favorite drugstore nail polish yet! The price is so amazing, for what you get. The color stays on for a long time also, and is pretty chip resistant. I use the silver color the most, its the best silver nail polish out there!

I really enjoy using SH Hard as Nails as a base coat for my nails. It does a great job keeping my nails looking great. My nails still tend to chip after day 2, but this is an affordable base coat, and more expensive brands don't do any better imo.
