    Comments about OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula:

    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.

              I started this product nearly a month ago. My nails were splitting and breaking weekly due to wearing acrylic overlay for years. After using this product, my nails are now stronger with NO splitting and breakage. I highly recommend this product. Note follow the directions for best results. I keep it by my night stand and apply daily for faster results. Its worth the price...guaranteed!

              Love it!! Been trying to go natural after having acrylics for years, I would remove them and put them back on after a couple days because the spliting would hurt so bad, but I trued this and have had my nails off for a month now and not one split!!! This stuff works!!!

                    I use this Original Formula daily or every other day. I am a cancer survivor, and the chemotherapy has weakened my already weak nails. This is the only product that works! I have long, beautiful nails, and enjoy a French Tip manicure once in a while. That never would be possible before I found Nail Envy!

                      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.

                    • 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?

                        A:

                        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.

                        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.

                        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?
