    Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

    I have used Nail Envy since 1998 when it helped my nails recover quickly from having acrylics removed. I always have it on my nails whether alone or as a base coat under polish. I hope they never change it or stop making it. I have recommended it many times.

      Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

      My nails were in horrible condition after removing artificial nails. Used many different nail strengtheners with no success. My niece told me about the Nail Envy by OPI. That has been about five years ago and I have been using it ever since. I use two coats under my polish then my top coat. My nails stay nice for around ten days. This is definitely a staple I wouldn't do without.......

        Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

        I have brittle nails but I live to do nail art! Thus product allows my nails to grow strong, fast, and healthy! This polish is clear so it doesn't interfere with my manicure designs. I've used the matte version of this polish in the past, but I personally do not feel that version works as well as the original formula does. Within two weeks there is a HUGE difference in my nail health and it's not a hassle filled routine to keep up. Just one thin coat per day for seven days, then take it off with nail polish remover and start over again. The bottle lasts forever too! I am a life time believer in this product, if they ever decide to discontinue this product I will stock up like crazy!

          Following the included instructions, this product does exactly what is says it will do -- makes nails stronger and healthier. It also helps a manicure last longer. While it is pricey, the bottle will last a long time and is worth the cost for a product that works!!

                      • 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!

                          You can certainly apply over nail lacquer.

                          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.

                        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?
