    Have had soft nails for all of my life - I am 75 years old and this is the only thing that has ever worked for me. Forget that old wives tale that you need tons of gelatin - THAT NEVER DID AND NEVER WILL WORK. I would recommend to anyone who has soft nails.

          Use it everyday or every other day. Within one whole bottle use my nails were strong and healthy and I have to cut them down over 5 times because they were to long to take Contax out. After one week use you can already see results. And without it you can really tell how brittle and thin nails are.

                    I used another product for years and it stopped working. Was advised by a clerk at Alta to try this. I had soft peeling, splitting, nails. Follow the directions for use. After two months of almost daily applying one coat I have the most fabulous nails and people notice. They grow so fast I have to file them down. I do my own manicures and I don't wear any polish as my nails are so fabulous.

                        Does Nail Envy still contain formaldehyde? I know it used to, but wondering if they redid the formula without it now... I will go back to using it if it's formaldehyde-free! :)

                        I bought this to help with peeling nails. I've been using it for a couple days and my nails feel measurably stronger. My question is - are nails strengthened only while I'm wearing it or will my nails still be stronger when I remove it after one week? Thanks!

                          A:

                          Your nails should be stronger after removing Nail Envy, though how much stronger really does depend on the initial condition of your nails (results vary by individual). It may take longer than one week to see noticeable improvement.

                        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.

                        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.

                          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.
