      Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

      I had used a similar product for years and it just stopped working. After two months of faithfully using this product I have fabulous nails again. I do not use nail polish and only use this product. I get compliments on my nails all the time. A single bottle lasts 3 months and it never gets stringing. I have recommended it to all my friends.

                    I just started using OPI Nail Envy after I decided to start doing my own manicures. It really does strengthen the nail and lasts. I've had 0 signs of breakage even for the first week of applying. It's amazing, I'd recommend it to anyone as a base coat!

                        I have used this for years. My nails used to split and break constantly. I did not want to get caught in the cycle of artificial nails. I put a quick coat in nightly and remove and start over after about 5 coats. Dries very quickly! Love it.

                          I was a bit skeptical and hesitant to spend $ on a nail treatment but after using this for 2 weeks I can honestly see and feel a big difference in my nails. They are longer, stronger, and they look great- which is a feat for my weak, brittle nails. This product is worth a try. Use it daily and see the results!

                          • Q:

                            Hi, I have had tips and either acrylic or gel nails. Usually as they grew out I would have a layer of either on my nails. I have done this since a teen in High School, I now want to let them be natural and grow out. At this time they are a bit weak and I wanted to know if this will help them to get stronger?

                              OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula should not be applied over gel nail lacquer, as it will not properly adhere. For better results, apply Nail Envy to the natural nail prior to your gel manicure.

                          • Q:

                            I have applied the initial two coats to my natural nail. When I apply additional coats every other day (as per the instructions), can I put this on top of a colored nail polish, or should I just keep building up layers on the two base layers on my natural nail? Thank you!

                              OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula should be used as instructed for best results. Using it daily causes a thick layer over the nail that will most likely peel.

                              Apply two coats to clean, dry nails with cuticles pushed back, followed by one coat every other day. After one week, use any OPI Polish Remover to remove all Nail Envy and nail lacquer, if present. Begin application again. Nail Envy works best to strengthen nails as a base coat in actual contact with the natural nail. It can also be used as a top coat over nail lacquer.

                              Depending on use and storage, the shelf life is 3 years. Store in a cool dry dark place; the refrigerator is a good place. Store and use at temperatures between 70 F/21 C and 80 F/27 C. Do not leave in direct sunlight.

                              You can certainly use Nail Envy with Ridge Filler. For best results when using these two products together, we recommend applying Ridge Filler as a base coat and applying Nail Envy as a top coat.

                              Results are based on variables; each one's desired results, correct application and the type of work you do. On average, you should begin to see growth within 2-3 weeks; however, everyone’s nails grow at a different rate.
