This product has been a real fixer for my weak, peeling nails. As long as you use it as directed, it will work wonders. Worth every penny.

      Comments about Butter London Horse Power Nail Strengthener:

      I was skeptical of this product when I received it in a subscription box but it really does work! My nails were in horrible condition, peeling, breaking easily, etc. I have used this for three and a half weeks now and my nails are consideraby stronger and don't break when I accidentally ram something. Even after you remove the weekly buildup, your peeling nails look better. After a few days of coats this product gives your nails a very faint lilac cast so if your nails are yellowish, it really helps counteract it. My only complaint is that it tells you to apply a coat once a day for a week, then remove and start over, continuing for four weeks. It also says you can wear it UNDER nail polish. So that is kind of confusing...you want to build it up to seven coats but if you put polish on top of a Horsepower coat, the next Horsepower coat would be OVER the polish. I normally paint my nails multiple times per week so going polish free for three and a half weeks has been rough but it has been worth it, my nails have improved for sure. It says to take a one month break between treatments so I will be polishing my nails again very soon! It is the tiniest bit gummy going on if you don't use a generous amount of product, but still dries very quickly even with a thick layer.

            Love, love, love this product!! I am 50 years old. When I was in my 20s and 30s I loved doing my nails. During my 40s my nails started to peel badly, and I always kept them short and did not paint them. A nail specialist told me that it looked like my nails were allergic to the chemicals in many of the traditional nail products. I have tried so many nail products and treatments. Nothing worked...until I tried horsepower nail strengthener by butter London. I started using this product two weeks ago. I have followed the instructions and put a new coat on every day, starting over once a week. It does not peel off of my nails or chip like other products. By itself it gives a high shine, polished looking, clear coat. It also provides an excellent base coat and topcoat for the butter London lacquers. I do think that it is important to use the full suite of products…including the polish removers to prep the nail (I use the pad they make) when using horsepower. For the first time in many years, I have beautiful nails. They are growing. I can wear them with this product alone or with lacquer. I am thrilled! As an added bonus, I am job interviewing right now. With the butter London neutral lacquers, I can give myself a beautiful home manicure and feel very polished for my job interviews. Thank you, butter London! And thank you, Ulta, for carrying such a great product and having it available close to my home!!

              I'm using this to help my totally worthless fingernails become stronger & grow. I put 2 coats on & then a quick one everyday. They say go a week doing this but I find 4 days is my max before it looks a little cakey around my cuticles, but I do wash my hands a lot. I then remove it, and use the buffing square , oil & cuticle remover & start over. My nails usually split & chip super easily. I'm actually getting growth & might reach the painting my nails stage here soon.

              Comments about Butter London Horse Power Nail Strengthener:

              I really have terrible nails. I swim 5 times a week, and the chlorine really takes a toll on my nails. They peel, they break, and they are so weak. So I purchased this on a whim, and I'm happy!

              As soon as it dries, my nails are strong. They don't bend or peel, and it really dries fast. I really don't care how long my nails are, so I can't say about the growth portion. I keep my nails trimmed, but there is a little length. FINALLY my nails are not peeling. I'm going to keep using it!

                Apply one coat daily for a week. Remove and start over. You will notice such a difference and your nails will look great.

                Stopped use of this product after 2 weeks. It took 4-6 weeks for my nails to recover. Save your money. This product will not help your nails.
