        Comments about Sally Hansen-Hard As Nails Strengthener:

        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.

                Comments about Sally Hansen-Hard As Nails Strengthener:

                I recently bought this and within a day and only applying a coat or two, I could already see and feel my nails getting stronger! My nails tend to chip, peel, and break easily, but this really did the trick! I use it after taking off polish and i let my nails go naked and just have this one and it really improves it! If you play sports, this would be great cause my nails always get bad during softball season.
