    Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

    My nails had become weak, brittle, and were peeling badly after taking prescription medication for acid reflux. I discovered this product after doing some research on the internet and could see a visible difference after a couple of weeks. After a month I was able to put polish on over it and my nails are now long and strong. I use two coats as a base coat under my polish each week. I cannot live without this product and highly recommend it to anyone who is having problems with their nails.

    Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

    I tried Nail Envy for the first time in 1998 after severe damage from trying acrylic nails. My real nails were back to normal, hard, and smooth within four months. I've used it ever since.

            Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

            I do my own nails and always get compliments. I like to change the color often and it is more convenient for me to do them while watching TV, etc. I have good nails and take Biotin but I also use Nail Envy before a base coat and my nails stay strong most of the time. I do recommend this product if you are nor happy with your natural nails and if you are weaning yourself away from fake nails and gels.

                      A:

                      Apply two coats to clean, dry nails with cuticles pushed back, followed by one coat every other day. After one week, use any OPI Polish Remover to remove all Nail Envy and nail lacquer, if present. Begin application again. Nail Envy works best to strengthen nails as a base coat in actual contact with the natural nail. It can also be used as a top coat over nail lacquer.

                      Depending on use and storage, the shelf life is 3 years. Store in a cool dry dark place; the refrigerator is a good place. Store and use at temperatures between 70 F/21 C and 80 F/27 C. Do not leave in direct sunlight.

                      You can certainly use Nail Envy with Ridge Filler. For best results when using these two products together, we recommend applying Ridge Filler as a base coat and applying Nail Envy as a top coat.

                      Results are based on variables; each one's desired results, correct application and the type of work you do. On average, you should begin to see growth within 2-3 weeks; however, everyone’s nails grow at a different rate.

                  • Q:

                    I get that I'm supposed to reapply every other day, but is there a point where I'm supposed to REMOVE it all and start anew, or just keep applying indefinitely? I mean, I get it that if I use it as a base coat under polish that i will remove it when removing color, but what if I'm not using a polish?
