    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

        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.

              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.

              This product is a miracle! I apply it everyday, for about 2 weeks, and my bottle is still almost full! It's like someone applied acrylic nails! My nails are very long now, and just how I like them, Thanks Sally!

                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.

                          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!
