    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.

                            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.
