    Comments about Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Hard As Wraps Powerful Acrylic Gel:

    Do not use this as a base coat, because your polish will start chipping on the same or next day.

      I bought this after reading some manicure suggestions on Pinterest. I now love 'Hard as Nails', and I try to get my lazy self to use it once a week.

            Comments about Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Hard As Wraps Powerful Acrylic Gel:

            I am so disappointed with this. I have used it on its own and it peels completely off. I made sure my nails were clean and dry and swiped with alcohol but it still peeled. Don't even think of using this as a base coat. Peels immediately - I'm talking within hours. Worst Sally Hansen product I've ever purchased.

              Comments about Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Hard As Wraps Powerful Acrylic Gel:

              I use Hard as Wraps nail hardener and or nail gel as a base coat.
              It makes my manicure last much longer without chipping.
              I do one coat of the Sally Hansen hardener or gel, 2 coats of polish and a clear top coat of OPI or other clear top coat.

              Also works great if you just want a quick shine without color polish.

              The hardener is a thinner coat.
              The gel is slightly thicker.
              Both work great!

                    Did not do a thing for my nails. Used it as a base coat & it made my nail polish too thick & it chipped the very next day. Used it alone and it noticably chipped/wore off within 2 days.

                          This is categorized as a top coat or base coat on this website, but it's really not either. So, I'm not surprised that many people are having trouble with it sufficing as such.

                          It's just meant to be worn alone to strengthen nails, like a treatment. If I were to try to have it serve double-duty, I would try it as a base coat only, never a top coat.

                          I bought the tinted version of this polish (it is baaaarely tinted, just adding a little something to your natural nails), which doesn't appear to be available on this site. I simply adore it! I use it alone on my nails when I want some shine and natural-looking nails with some help with strength.

                                  I have been a nail picker for 20+ years. I recently decided to kick the habit and grow out my nails. I needed something on it to avoid picking and this stuff has been a lifesaver. The first time I applied it, it was so easy and dried really fast. It then lasted a really long time until I had to take it off and redo it (never chipped - only had to redo it because my nails were growing out). I had tried other green tea nail growth things but nothing has ever worked for me.

                                  Bottom line: best purchase!
