This is a protein strengthener that can be worn on its own or under nail polish. It has a high gloss shine making it great to wear alone without polish when you grow and repair your nails for a...

My brush was uneven and I haven't seen growth though I have seen strength and hardness and it lasts long as a base and top.

Not bad. Does make my nails a little stronger as long as I keep applying. Doesn't do much to stop dryness or the splitting that comes from it. Not as good as OPI Nail Envy, but a decent cheaper...

I've undertaken months of experimentation before concluding that this product actually lives up to its claims. My nails are terrible, thanks to genetics. They're weak and flexible, split and peel,...

This is the perfect base and top coat. Makes my manicure last and strengthens my nails at the same time - what more could you ask for?

Packaging: The bottle is HUGE (6oz/18ml) and has a rubberized handle which seemed silly but I actually loved it. The brush is thin, but so is the product so it works perfectly. I paid $8 at a...

I use this as my base coat as darker nail colors are my mainstay - OPI Russian Navy & OPI Marooned on the Subway for example - and this keeps them from discoloring my nails. The strengthening is a...

My nails used to be very thin, and peeled or chipped off every time I tried to grow them out. I used other base coats, but nothing seemed to work. I bought this one after reading reviews online and...

This is a solid base coat and a good top coat. It's my default whenever I paint my nails. It's a little expensive, but it's easy to find (beauty stores and drugstores both have it) and it dries...

my nails have been getting progressively worse at breaking and tearing over the last few months, so I finally decided to start using a treatment product on them. I decided to get Orly Nail Defense,...
