    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.

            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.

                      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!
