Amazing long-lasting, quick drying and strengthening base coat! Incredible wear-time, I'll get a good 7 days use before the shine decreases and I choose to remove and re-apply. When it does start to come off, it only barely recedes at the free edge and never peels or even chips off.

With a thinner formula, it dries quickly (especially if your bottle is new or more than 1/2 full), taking no more than 15 mins to be dry to the touch and 25 mins to be able to shower and wash your hair. Even if you've applied too much and it isn't totally dry when you start using your hands, it'l only slightly slide (i.e. isn't sticky at all), for which you can easily maneuver the polish back to where it was, no hassles.

I always use this as protection for my nails (like a 'shield' against damage), preventing scratches and tears. It's also excellent as a base coat for all my manicures and works with all brands.

Can't testify too much as to the strengthening properties of the polish, but I'm sure it doesn't hurt. I use jojoba oil as my first-line nail strengthener (works wonders), while this polish is more for protection and added strength.

Love that W7 is cruelty-free and inexpensive.

As a [somewhat] reformed nail biter, who still relapses in times of depression, I need help to grow and maintain my nails. They can become so brittle and weak, they’d snap as soon as I manage to grow them to a neat and paint-able length. OPI's Nail Envy can always be counted on when I need help, but it is a pricey product in the UK. When I was browsing Amazon I saw W7's [Warpaint Cosmetics] HARDER & TOUGHER nail treatment for £2.99, and knowing that W7 makes good Benefit blush dupes I decided to give it a go and see if their winning dupes extend beyond blush...




Like Nail Envy, HARDER & TOUGHER coats nails with a clear protective barrier, which both protects and nourishes the nail. Once you've grown your nails, you don’t throw this into a drawer and forget about it; this is lovely to use as a base coat, and I've found it to prevent any staining after I used dark polish. HARDER & TOUGHER also makes a great topcoat. The formula doesn't affect the colour of my polish and adds a nice gleam to my nails.


I've removed a star as Nail Envy does give me faster results and is more chip resistant, but HARDER & TOUGHER is still something that I'll happily re-buy in the not-too-distant future.
