Comments about Orly Nail Defense:

When it comes to soft. weak, peeling nails that split and break easily, I have had a lifetime sentence. I have probably tried thousands of dollars' worth of polishes, treatments and supplements hoping something would work for me. Sorry to say that the Orly Nail Defense did not work for me. Since I love Orly polishes, I stuck with their line and am now trying Nailtrition. After only a few days, I can feel a difference in the strength of my nails -- fingers crossed.

          Comments about Orly Nail Defense:

          So far I've only had this for about a week, but after following the instructions and reapplying every other day, my nails seem to be doing great. The polish hasn't chipped or peeled off (that I can see, being clear and all) so my nails haven't suffered any damage with it on (peeling, tearing, breaking, etc). I have not removed it yet so I'm not sure how easy that is, but it seems like it would be normal in that aspect.

          A week in and I'm impressed, and for so much less than other treatments/brands, it was a steal. Seems to be really worth it!

              Love this as clear protectant plus as base and top coat. One coat every 2 to 3 days keeps nails strong and color protected.

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