Most Helpful Positive Review Favorite new formula
I have been getting my nails done at the nail shop for years. I can't even remember the last time I bought nail polish before this. My busy career keeps me from having time once a week to get my manicure. I found a DIY manicure turorial on Pinterest, and decided to give it a try, since my nails were looking wrecked, and I didn't have the time to go to the nail shop. The only thing I didn't have on hand was nail polish. I picked this up in the shade 'Like a girl', and I'm so glad I did. It is a fun color, yet very grown up and sexy. My nails feel strong, and I don't feel the need to get gel manicures anymore. It's been three days, and I don't notice any chipping, and the nail polish has a high shine. Now I want it in every color!
Most Helpful Critical Review Nice but smells horrible
I really like the polish, dries fast, nice coverage. The problem is it smells so bad! Very toxic and you can't get away from it. I've washed my hands over and over. I won't use again.

Karina Lucille from Westchester, NY
The nail polish is extremely thin, where I had to put 5 coats for the color to show. Nice color, but the product isn't that great.
Its okay just chips easy!!

This product is not the greatest it chips very easy
Comes off after 1 day
ReineV from California
I bought the Mega Strength nail polish # 038. I have useed it 3 times, and it always start coming off after 1 day. I tried to apply each coat after 5 minutes, and still it sarted chipping.I have been using Sally Hansen products and this is the first time I experience this issue.
Thin and takes forever to dry
ASmitt from Virginia
This nailpolish is awful. The color is beautiful, but it takes over half a day to dry completely, which means that it will smudge if you dont have the time to sit still for 6+ hours until it dries. It is also very thin, and requires at least three coats before it stops looking sheer. I have painted my nails with this color twice, and between having to put on 3-4 coats of polish each time, and having to redo the nails that smudge because it takes forever to dry, I have already used up one third of the bottle. I am giving it an extra star only because it is pretty. I am very disappointed.
Alec from Dallas, TX
I usually like Sally Hansen polish, but this mega strength line is not good. I bought two shades (Keepin It Reel and Liquid Power), and both do not have great payoff, even with two coats.
MK from NY
My daughter loves it
Kathleen from Virginia
This polish definitely stands up to its name! My nails are stronger, split far less and look great!
Worst drying nail polish ever
JoanieB from MI
It takes hours to dry. This is ridiculous.
Dry and Streaky
Sarah from MA
I got the shade On Fleek. I'm not sure if my bottle was old, but the formula was very dry. The bottle says you only need to coats, I applied 3 and still ended up with streakiness. The color is very pretty, but the formula is awful. Save your money.
Great color, lasts about 4 days without chipping
Amanda from Denver, CO
This is a gorgeous pink, purple and light blue multichrome polish. Got it for my young niece and ended up going and getting a bottle for myself. It's lasted over a basecoat for about 4-5 days without noticeable wear.
Beautiful Color but Stinks Horribly
Linz9078 from Baltimore, MD
I bought the Persis-tint yesterday and was so excited when I was applying it... until I discovered how horrid it smells. It's like a mix of B.O. and plastic, and won't go away, even if you add a top coat.
Really sad I wasted my money because Sally Hansen products have typically been my favorite.
I love these products!
Jen85 from Troy, MI
I bought the maximum strength base coat and one Mega Strength color, Be Iconic. They are the first products from Sally Hansen that really work. My nails are stronger, and they are growing. Plus, the nail polish does not chip as easily as most. I love it! Keep it coming. It is way, way better than Hard As Nails.
Sports Car Girl from OH
I use the Mega Strength clear base polish on top of any nail brand that I use and I use another coat in 3 days. Now constant hand washing is a breeze! I like it!!!!
Jenny from Hanford
I thought this color would look just like in the bottle but it was completely sheer. I'm not sure if that's the point of the formula but it was sad to see it wasn't as I expected.
Smears and chips
RB22 from NYC
I have this in Stay Classy, which is a pearly white color. 2-3 coats make it opaque. However, it takes forever to dry. In fact, I found on my hands it never quite dried and would smear and chip the same day, even after letting it dry for hours. Base and top coats didn't help. I like the color, so I'm using it on my toes. The wear there is a tiny bit better.
Not the worse but not the best
Beautyguru from MN
Color is lovely applied semi evenly but it doesn't last very long :(
Rachel from California
I've only tried one in Persis-tint. It's a gorgeous pink that shifts blue. It gives me mermaid vibes. I love it and want to try more colors.
I wouldn't buy this product again.
Hula Girl from Bakersfield, CA
Since pandemic closed nail salons I am on my own with nail care, first time in over 40 years. Wanted a nail product that protected my nails and made me feel good about the appearance of my hands. This definitely wasn't the product to do that.
Lilumeyer1 from California
Definitely my favorite nail polish formula by far. My nails are notoriously brittle and get torn apart by gel manicures. The polish dries quickly, looks great, and lasts. Generally I can go about 5 or 6 days before my nails start to chip or look a little worn, which is perfect in my book.
Buffy2015 from Kentucky
My nails had become brittle and constantly breaking off, so I decided to give this a try. I started using mega strength nail color about 2 weeks ago, and can honestly say my nails are not near as brittle as they were. Only one chip and my nails are finally growing again.
Like the color but chips very easily
Vicki from Ft. Bragg, NC
I like the color and the gold glitter makes it sparkle alot, but it chips very easily.
I would buy this again.
Adu from Florence KY
Nice colour ...stays long.
Bad application, never dried
Whit from Detroit, MI
I got the light pink color "Pink Like a Girl". The color was very sheer and needed 3 coats. The application was very chunky, I have never had such a hard time getting a smooth look. I took time to dry between coats but the nails overall never dried, even with my usual quick dry top coat. Painted them one evening and by the next morning they were still tacky (and ruined)
Debra2 from NC
As a former nail technician, I have used a wide variety of polishes. This by far is the best ever. Only one thing -more colors!
