Ask a Question
Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula by OPI provides maximum strengthening with hydrolyzed wheat protein and calcium for harder, stronger, natural nails! Ideal for weak, damaged nails. (Results are based on variables, each ones desired results, correct application, 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.)
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.

                Can I wear a nail color on top of this and have it be just as effective on my nails since you have to reapply every other day?

                  A:

                  Yes, the recommended mode of use is:

                  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 vary by individual and are dependent on the initial condition of your nails.

                I have had acrylic nails for years. I took them off about a year ago. My nails have ridges, are dry, brittle and pealing. They are not sensitive. Which product should I use?

                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?

                  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!
