    It actually works and isn't a cheap type of polish! I took off my fake nails and this saved my nail bed.

      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.
