        This product is awful. It starts peeling off after just a few hours. My nails look horrible by the next day. Have to completely remove the next day.

          Ruined my nails using the new 'stick on nail art'. Hoping this will get my nails back to normal.

                  I have been using SH for 30+ years. This helps strengthen my nails, doesn't chip off. I have tried most of the SH products and would recommend them to all.

                    Comments about Sally Hansen-Hard As Nails Strengthener:

                    This is THE BEST hardener for prolonging nail polish wear. I put 2 coats of OPI polish on, then this, then Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat, and it lasts a week! I often put a second coat of this on after a day or two to make it thick and sturdy--like a salon manicure. This hardener also has an amazing ability to smooth out any imperfections in your nail polish application. Use this as a top coat to greatly improve your manicure. I've been using this for over 10 years and haven't found a better base/top coat out there. It works wonderfully as both!

                                Works just as well as the spendy nail polishes for strengthening with out a spendy price.

                                  Comments about Sally Hansen-Hard As Nails Strengthener:

                                  I've used the natural (pink) tinted Hard as Nails for decades, and first discovered this in my Mom's makeup kit in the 70s. I usually wear it alone to strengthen my nails and give them a little shine, sometimes as a basecoat for colored polish. I bartend, and hate doing dishes with gloves = rough on my nails. Bare, they tend to split and get those breaks at the side - too high up the nail bed - the ones that would be painful to continue. I also tend to be klutzy with manicures, typically managing to nick or smudge before fully dry - not so with this product - and hooray for no annoying little bubbles for applying multiple coats. It ages well. My current bottle sat half-used and forgotten in a box after a move and showed no change in consistency even though I'd opened it years ago. More than can be said for the rest of the contents.
