    Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

    I put on two coats and then another coat each day for five days. Then remove and start over. I have dry brittle nails and this prevents them from splitting and breaking. I also use this on my toenails before polish to fill in ridges and prevent yellowing. This is a great product and well worth the money!

          Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

          After using a "quick polish drying" product for about 1 month found my nails breaking and peeling HORRIBLY!!!! Started using a nail strengthner that I've used for years & just was not working.So after 8 months or so I started using this OPI product & after about 4 weeks I am actually getting my hard nail back. I do use it every night however not every other as suggested. Love it & just bought another bottle!! Thank you OPI!

          Cons

          Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

          Dries quickly within seconds, but it builds up on my nails and chips. Making them weak and brittle again. I recommend the sensitive formula. Doesn't smell too strong where it lingers if you apply it in the morning or throughout the day.

          Just okay.

          Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

          Started using the Nail Envy for Soft and Thin Nails to help repair my nails. That formula was PHENOMENAL! After getting long, beautiful nails using that, I switched to this product for maintenance. But I didn't care for it all. The formula is much thinner than the one for soft nails, and in switching, I was actually worried that my nails would start breaking again. The other formula is just so much thicker - and therefore made my nails so much stronger - than this one. Exchanged this for Soft Nails one and am so much happier that I did.

            I love nail envy. When I have it on my nails don't peel or break. I can grow them so long. I use it as a basecoat every time I paint my nails. I think its also important though to use a good gentle nail file.

            Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

            I use OPI Nail Envy as a base coat about once a week before applying a colored nail polish. It helps with my nail ridges and also helps the top polish to last longer. Because it is good quality and lasts longer, I don't need to use harsh polish remover as often, which is kinder to my nails.

              What type of nail polish remover should be used to remove the Nail Envy to start the process over again after a week? Is non-acetone best?

                A:

                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.

                A:

                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.

            • Q:

              I get that I'm supposed to reapply every other day, but is there a point where I'm supposed to REMOVE it all and start anew, or just keep applying indefinitely? I mean, I get it that if I use it as a base coat under polish that i will remove it when removing color, but what if I'm not using a polish?

                A:

                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.

                We recommend applying this product directly onto your natural nails for best results. It can be used as a base coat, or applied underneath your base coat.
