My nails have always been weak and thin. I used to use a China Glaze product that helped but it always yellowed and looked bad and the instructions said not to put polish on over it. So, two months ago I bought a bottle of nailtiques formula 2, cringing over the price. But now I'm sold. My nails are quite strong and I've just managed to move house without so much as breaking one …Read more

The scent is very pleasant and it starts out strong but it fades fast. Since I have a blue bathtub I didn't notice that it colored the water, which apparently it's supposed to turn it a pale blue. However it added just the right amount of essential oils to the water to feel very nice. I won't repurchase, mostly because of the price; for what it costs, I can buy a small bottle of …Read more

I picked this up today in "Red Fox". It's a great classic red color, opaque in two coats, goes on smooth and even. The brush is neither too short nor too long, the price at 3.99 was very fair.

Added to say that this polish seems to chip easily. I'll try another color or two to be certain.

My hands suffer a lot of exposure to harsh chemicals, but this stuff makes them look and feel wonderful. The almond scent is very strong but it fades really fast, the product is very rich and you only need a little bit of it at a time.

I love this stuff! Before: cuticles and skin surrounding the nails on every finger splitting and bleeding. After one week of using : Only skin on one finger still splitting, the rest look perfect. I paid $8.95 for a half-ounce at Beauty Secret and I even love the smell. So going to repurchase when it runs out.

I also found this polish a bit thick but it dried quickly enough and it didn't bubble. It stood up well enough, didn't chip or anything but I got bored with it three days later and removed it. Two coats were sufficient to make the color even, it's a very intense slightly greenish blue. Looks fabulous with a glitter topcoat.

It's hard on the skin but for fast removal of difficult things like glitter and very dark colored nail polish, I love this stuff. And it's pretty cheap, 16 ounces for about three dollars. I've only used the 100% pure acetone nail polish remover but they also make a non-acetone one and a vitamin E one and a bubblegum scented one.

I picked this up at 75% off, so it was well worth it. It makes an interesting top coat for a french manicure, a subtle sheer gold. Still, at full price I probably won't re-purchase just because it's a common color I can buy more cheaply in other brands.
