      This product is just okay. It hardens slightly. The tint is nice when worn alone. It works best when polish and a top coat are used on top with it.

          I have used Sally Hansen hard as nails several times in the past. Always liked it. Good as base/top coat or alone to strengthen nails. Love it!

          It doesn't help my nails at all. I only found use as a top coat to make my polish stay longer.

            Comments about Sally Hansen-Hard As Nails Strengthener:

            I have been looking for a good base coat or system I can use to help my polish. Thought I'd try this. Reviews weren't bad and it was cheap, but it did nothing for my nails. It peels off within 2 days if worn alone and does not keep polish from chipping. Unfortunate, I love other Sally Hansen products.

                  Everyday strength for nails, providing just a hint of a tint enhancing an overall very natural look.

                    Comments about Sally Hansen-Hard As Nails Strengthener:

                    I bought this base coat because of it's great value and it's promotion as a strengthener. For as long as I can remember, I've been biting my nails and because of that, they were not very strong and sometimes would split at the nail bed. When I use this product, it helps me refrain from biting them and let's my nails grow out to a healthy length. I've been using it for a few weeks and my nails are much stronger and have not split since! Now that they have grown out, I always use this as a base coat under my polish to keep them healthy and strong!

                        This is MY miracle in a bottle

                        By Rachael31

                        from Minneapolis, MN, United States

                        Comments about Sally Hansen-Hard As Nails Strengthener:

                        I was never able to grow my own nails and then I started using this. All I did when I began using it was put it on every other day, talking off the old polish before I applied new. I didn't expect to see results in 1 week as the bottle claimed because I know that everyone is different. What works for some may not work for others. This is the stuff that I finally found that works for me. For the first time in my life I am able to enjoy long nails that are not acrylic. (And they got reeeaaallly long) Yes my nails still break, but I just keep putting Maximum Growth on and eventually they DO grow back. I have been using this product for about 6 months now and I still apply every 3rd day or so if I don't wear polish over the top. If I do, then I will wear it for about a week with no problems. The directions are confusing, I will admit, but.. its polish. Take off the old, put on the new. Only 1 coat is needed.
