WOW this stuff works! I wear my nails short in general (for keyboard typing) but in the past 1-2 yrs they've gotten weak & I noticed that if I try to let them grow they only chip off & break easily, especially the corners.

I bought this product primarily for the optical brightener....I LOVE the bright, healthy nail look & this is one of those rare formulas that doesn't peel off right after water exposure (many cheaper optical brighters peel off so quickly).

I would wear 2 coats of this either alone or under color nailpolish & 2 things happen:

(1) My manicures last far longer than they would w/o this product - longer than a wk if I want, which is good b/c these days I'm too busy to change polish every other day like I used to (now it's more like every 1-2 wks).

(2) After a month's use I realized my nails are now super hard & strong & they actually are growing w/o any breakage (just 1 minor corner chip on a thumbnail, since I text a lot, pressing hard plastic tiny buttons on my phone).

Granted, it's no doubt the bit of formaldehyde in this product that's making my nails really strong (I've used formaldehyde products before, so I know the 'good' & bad of it), but I really like this. My nails actually feel like acrylics, which I haven't worn in ages. They're still flexible to strong pressure, but they are firm & solid & resist breaking. I'm very impressed! Which is a good thing considering that I thought the price of this was absolutely ridiculous ($30) & I hesitated for MONTHS before succumbing.

I hate the crummy bottle (tall cylinder bittle with wide open mouth & tiny cap on a long brush wand, like original SH Hard As Nails clear hardener back when I was a kid), but this is a great product & yeah I would definitely buy it again. It's got a lot of payoffs that I like, incl'g a lot of product, so there's no stinginess by the company. Presently my nails have finally grown longer than usual & I'm not eager to cut them down yet. By now they usually have to go! It's getting challenging to type as easily, but who cares, my nails look GOOD :) & I'll hold out a little longer.

Excellent product (for me at least) & after hesitating for so long I can certainly say I'd buy this again.
