    Comments about Orly Nail Defense:

    This product works great over and under your nail polish. It has really helped strengthen my nails in just one week. I apply it every other day and it has kept my nail polish color intact for over a week. Great product.

    It's great for getting healthy nails, not for top coat.

    Comments about Orly Nail Defense:

    In the beginning, I just used this just as a clear coat to protect my nails. After following the directions and using this product every other day, I saw a significant difference. There was less peeling and flexibility, which is what I was looking for. However, when I attempted to use it as a top coat after applying color, it did not last. The product does do what it says it's supposed to, but I wouldn't use it as a top coat for color again like it suggested on the box.

      Used the nail defense for a month and it made my nails worse. My nails split, peeled and became softer than before I started using it. It took over a week before my nails were back to normal

                Didn't start with this product after I had my nails removed because it was so inexpensive, and I wanted to be sure I got something that was really good. Wish I had started with that because it's really good.
