            I tried OPI's nail envy to rescues my nails after acrylics and saw no results, so I turned to this and I'm very glad that I did! My nails don't split or peel nearly as much as they do without this product, and it really helped them recover from the damage of acrylics.

              Used other name brand strengthener and none worked on my brittle splitting nails. Decided to purchase the Butter London strengthener. I saw results in a week and my nails are now stronger and not splitting. By the third week my nails are longer and healthy.

              Comments about Butter London Horse Power Nail Strengthener:

              Paint on one layer a day for seven days. Then take off and repeat for strength and hardness. It dries in seconds...literally! I have also noticed that when it is time to take it off, I can easily just peel it off in one chunk without damaging the nail plate.

                          Butter London recommends a one month break after a full treatment cycle to give your nails a chance to breathe, as they should be in better condition and stronger after a full cycle of use.

                      • Q:

                        Does this product add moisture to the nail or remove it to harden? The only problem I have with my nails is that they peel. I don't know if I should add moisture to my nails or if they have too much moisture and that is causing the peeling.

                          "We haven't performed testing regarding the efficacy of Horse Power helping with peeling nails, however Horse Power does strengthen dry, brittle nails and promotes growth. It can be used as a daily treatment to restore dry and damaged nails."

                      • Q:

                        When using as an intense treatment, can you put a coat or two of A Butter London nail color over the first layer and then add a coat each day or so you have to stick to only using Horse Power

                          Yes, you can certainly apply Horse Power this way. It works as a base coat and/or top coat.

                      • Q:

                        Can you use regular nail polish remover to take this product off your nails before reapplying?

                          A:

                          As an intense strengthening treatment, we recommend layering the coats (1 coat per day) for a full 7 days for best results, then removing all coats at the end of the 7 days. Repeat this process 4X (a full month).

                          Yes, a regular nail polish remover will do the trick to remove it! For best results, use Butter London Scrubbers 2 In 1 Remover & Nail Prep Pads (Item #: 2263794):
