Most Helpful Positive Review 1st Kiss Aid Nail strengthener really really works!!!
I can't believe my nails so far so good....I've been using OPI nail strengthener for months...and usually almost ALWAYS my nails start to chip on the 2nd or 3rd day!!!!! So I am trying out this new ella+mila's 1st Kiss Aid nail strengthener I've had it on now for 4 days and NO CHIPPING I REPEAT NO CHIPPING YET! I am in the water the dirt and I am a busy woman here at my 20 acre farm with 25 flower beds and mowing etc etc etc.....NOTHING has kept my nails this good so far! HONEST!!! I was so disappointed in the OPI nail rescue cuz I paid 17 BUCKS for the bottle...mind you I wouldn't care about paying that amt. IF ONLY IT DID WHAT IT SAID IT WOULD DO.....AND IT DIDN'T!!!! And I truly tried it 2-3 months. My order came within 2-3 days and I ADORE AND LOVE everything that this company stands for....especially when it comes to painting your nails with clean and no harsh chemicals to deteriorate and strip away your precious nails and or to put in our landfills!!! Thank you ella+mila for your devotion and commitment for forming this AWESOME and wonderful company that cares what we put on our skin. I have a very good feeling about this company and am excited to tell everyone I know about them and also wanting to try out their other make up products. THANK YOU AGAIN...by the way I'm making another order tonight with a coupon reward:-))))))
Most Helpful Critical Review I'm still figuring it out..
Now I feel a way about this product aha. Its not bad quality or anything of the kind. I'm someone who reads ingredients & knows what they are & how they work (NERD alert aha). Yet besides Vit E there really isn't anything to strengthen the nail plate. I used this a month, still had splitting, chipping & peeling..although I wasn't expecting a miracle. I simply have nails that are prone to this. For me, this is a mild protective coating! Yes it's shiny, no it doesn't chip, yes it's easy to apply & to remove. I'd apply 2 coats on the weekend & another 2 coats mid week. So for me, this isn't the enriching treatment I'm looking for. Although I'll use this bottle..using it for my ?Çÿno color week', once finished then I'll continue on my journey. :)
Reviewed by 395 customers EHH.....JUST A CLEAR POLISH
VMITCHELL from Charlotte, NC
This product is just okay. It's just a regular clear polish. I have pretty healthy nails. Usually, any nail strengthener will do my nails justice; however, this one did not. There were no benefits to the polish and I found that it chipped and peeled off excessively. Even the brush was a disappointment. The brush didn't flare to evenly glide over nail. The brush was "just there' and pretty awkward to use. I definitely do NOT recommend.
M from Ca
After a few weeks of use as directed, no change at all and getting worse. My nails are splitting. I have to get to the store to return.
As good as everyone says
Amanda from South Carolina
It has only been a week and my nails are already longer. It does not chip or peel off, even with my hands in water a lot.
Natural long nails at last!!!!
andrea0468 from High Point, NC
I have been doing SNS for years. It was the only way I could have long nails. When COVID hit, I had to stop doing SNS. My nails were thin, weak and just in horrible shape. I have NEVER had long natural nails. I began using this and my nails are finally long, strong, and healthy. I will never put anything harsh on my nails again! This was a lifesaver.
Will never be without!!!
Meg from IL
After a month my nails are the longest and strongest they've ever been!!
I wasn't sure if I should believe it
Tullita from Atlanta, Ga
My nails leave a lot to be desired, perhaps I am hard on them. I type a lot at my job, I do housework (hate gloves) generally I guess I abuse my hands and nails. I saw this and wondered well, will it work. The first question was leave on a week. I figured nothing would stay on my nails a week....it did...I still had a "clear polish" shine. I have gone through the two weeks mentioned and will start my two day routine today. My nails look overall heathier. This gives them good protection and the shine does last giving them the clear polish look I wear. I know it mentions after 4 weeks wear as a base coat but I think I will continue to use it as my polish. I've spent a lot of $ over the years to make my nails look better but this for a reasonable price does the job.
Oh as a side note I did order and use the Soy polish remover too. Seems to actually help my cuticles. I do love this product
your nails will love it
Ulta-fabulous from Hialeah, FL
I have only used once and could already tell the difference on my nails.
B from JAX FL
Does add strength to nails as advertised. Cleaner formula than other brands. As others have pointed out and was still a surprise anyway, it really does smell good! Just bought, but so far has held up fine for 5 days. Have a feeling won't last much longer, but the instructions say to do once a week at first anyway, then every other day (but nobody got time for that so once a week is good ;)
Damage from acrylic? Thin, weak nails?? MUST TRY!
Miss Fudd from Winston-Salem, NC
After 16 years of acrylic wearing... my nails were not in the best shape at all. Paper thin, sensitive & splitting/peeling nails were the results. I have been using OPI nail strengthener for 3 years and never used anything else because I felt the results were pretty good and my nails did grow even though I keep them fairly short due to typing all day at work. However, I gave this a try and used it exactly as instructed (this is key!)... I am honestly so much more impressed with the way my nails look and feel after only 3 weeks. My new staple for sure.
The product is good maybe I'll buy again!
Lizmar from Cypress Ca
So I saw all the good reviews that this product had. So I decided to try it out. I really like it it's just that sometimes my nails do chip a little after having this on. I'm not sure why but other than that it's a good product
THE BRUSH RUINS EVERYTHING
VMITCH from Charlotte, NC
This nail strengthener is pretty good; however, the brush is TERRIBLE. The bristles are a little too long and they are very much stuck together. Even though the bristles are stuck together, the mass is very bendy. It is difficult to evenly polish your nails using the brush. I do like the way the polish smells.....but the brush kind of ruins it for me.
Esmee from Chicago, IL
I was so skeptical at first, but the results speak for themselves. I have always had weak, brittle nails, I grow them out because they would always break. Smells great!! This is a game changer, week 4 and my nails are so much stronger!! Love this. Will repurchase in the future!! Never change the formula!
CStash from Ohio
I've tried many nail strengtheners over the years and felt they helped but nothing remarkable. This one though - AMAZING. I absolutely credit First Kiss with strengthening and repairing my nails after years of consistent gel. I even notice the color of my nails just looks healthier. Looooove it.
Saved My Nails
Zee from MI
I was never one to care about the condition of my nails, I would constantly bite my nails and get acrylics done. My nails would always bend whenever I tried growing out because of the things I put it through. After a while my nails became so brittle and thin that they would break at any simple movements. A friend told me about this product and I immediately got it. In a matter of a couple months, yes, months, my nails have grown strong and healthy. They no longer break or bend. Acrylics are now in the past, and natural is my present and future. I really don't know what I would have done if it wasn't for this.
Nails string and
Kathie from COSTA MESA
Inhaled used the product for the last few months and love it. I don't follow directions well, so out a coat on every day for a few days, then sporadically. They are hard yet flexible and I don't peel tissue paper like nails anymore. When I forget to reapply it is definitely noticeable. So I get into the routine again and they go bad to be g like my real nails used to be. Grateful to have found this, really works!.
Lori from Merrillville
First Aid Kiss Nail Strengthener helped my nails to grow in just one week!!!! I did the 4 week regimen and I only had one nail chip because I didn't change the strengthener soon enough. It has grown already though with continued use of the strengthener. I just can't believe I have long nails again... FINALLY! I highly recommend this strengthener from ella+mila. I just ordered the Lavender Oil to help with my cuticles! ?¥ñ??Å
Nanette from GENEVA
I've been using another brand of nail strengthener for years. I came across this brand and gave it a try. Glad I did! I've had acrylics on for months and after removal my natural nails were in bad shape. With applying first aid kiss, they are stronger and growing beautifully!
This really works!
Paula from Littleton
My nails peeled and split, due to severe anemia and slamming a few of them in a desk drawer. This works to give me nails that are durable and strong!
Karen from Quinby
This product has really made a believer out of me. My nails are stronger and healthier looking since I started using it.
Kathy from Massillon
This is the first time I have been able to use a polish nail hardener that actually works!! I love it!!
Just bought my Second bottle!
Kim from Michigan
Works for me
Lu from Fort Myers
I was very impressed with this product. I wasn't expecting it to actually work, but thought I would give it a try, since I loved the polish. After 2 weeks, I could tell my nails were harder. They usually just bend like rubber bands, but they weren't any more. After the 4 weeks, they are much stronger. I have the worst, flaking, chipping, peeling nails imaginable, and I can only get them to grow if they are covered with lots of polish, because they are so breakable. The improvement is quite noticeable.
April from Farmington
I am starting week 3 of application. I have noticed a huge improvement in nails. They are stronger and finally have growth. I have always been a nail biter and would wear acrylics but feel confident that's all a thing of the past.
Lisa from Steelton
I am on my 2nd week of First Aid Kiss and I can honestly say I feel my nails are doing so much better! Both of my thumb bails were cracking down the center and nothing was helping, I even went to a salon to have them dip both thumbs thinking it would make them stronger till the cracks grew out. It only made the entire nail worse. So far so good, the nails seem stronger and they have a nice shine to them as well. If it continues after the 4 week period I will definitely purchase your nail polish products!! It will be nice to have polished nails once again!!
Carol from Rochester
I am on week two of the First Kiss program. My nails were damaged from acrylic nails. It seems to b working. They are growing and there is only slight breakage due to the acrylic nails weakening the rips. I'm confident at the end of four weeks my nails will be in good enough shape that I can wear polish again.
