            Comments about Dermelect High Maintenance Instant Nail Thickener:

            I've been doing my own manicures for years now, religiously, and I get comments about how professional they look regularly. That said, I should also mention that I play tennis twice a week and do crossfit three times a week. My nails have been taking a serious beating for about a year now, as NO TOPCOAT can tolerate nails scratched against a tennis court to pick up tennis balls or tossing around barbells. I'm afraid to even write this review because I feel like I might jinx it, but this topcoat has made my nails stronger, allowed them to grow longer due to the strength, and has actually allowed my nail polish to get through four-five days of crossfit with no chips. And it's a moderately quickly drying formula with no formaldehyde??? Unbelievable. I'm not sure about the other reviews saying it lifted the polish. I only use OPI nail polish, and I usually do two coats. I haven't had any problems with the polish lifting. Highly recommended.

                Ok, let's see..remember, products work differently on everyone. I can say this much, NOT BAD AT ALL! In fact, I'm going to purchase another bottle. My nails were in pretty good condition to start with, maybe only one or two nails where cracking, so, this stuff did help. This product does create some sort of "coat" to one's nails. I used it alone, no nail color. I also used a base with this and it did help. The last couple of months,I have used other brands of NAIL THICKENERS and this product worked better then those other products - that's why I'm going to purchase again.

                applied morning, flaked off by evening. Tried polish over it and then polish also flaked off. Nails got worse, splitting and pealing

                    Fake nails ruined my nails in l991 and since then have tried everything. When I sent for this product I could tell the difference in a month. Now my nails, finally, are hard and actually have some white showing on them.
                    What a blessing after l9 years of trying for nails that did not tear, that I found these products. Thank you, thank you!!

                      I was very disappointed that this product didn't last longer than a day. It seemed to peel off my natural nail after very little wear. It certainly does thicken the nail, but unless you plan to apply daily I don't see how it would be beneficial.

                          The product description said nail thickener was long lasting. Polish peeled off in a few hours.
