I'm not sure what's in the bottle, but I suspect it may be magic.

While I'm fortunate and inherited the "good & strong" nails from my mum's side of the family, I've alway had a problem with breakage, particularly the sides of my thumbnails. Part of that is because I work with my hands but I've noticed since I started using Grow Faster, my nails are stronger and seem to be growing longer, faster. So much so that I was whining the other night that I had to cut my nails down because it was too hard to type with them. *boo hoo*

I agree that putting the wee little bottle of polish in a comparatively big box is extraneous packaging but it IS recyclable (in most areas).
It's not expensive, I paid about $7 at a local big box retailer- comparable cost to OPI, China Glaze (if it's not on sale) or Seche Vite (on sale) but for my money, it's better quality.
