              My nails are very paper thin. So I wanted to try a nail strengthener but this has not done the job. The polish does not even last an entire day and I reapply very frequently with no results.

                  Best thing ever. I've had acyrlics for the past two years so my nails are obviously soft and can't grow.

                  My nails aren't peeling like other times I've gone acrylic free! Amazing product and would highly recommend!

                  Comments about Orly Nail Defense:

                  When it comes to soft. weak, peeling nails that split and break easily, I have had a lifetime sentence. I have probably tried thousands of dollars' worth of polishes, treatments and supplements hoping something would work for me. Sorry to say that the Orly Nail Defense did not work for me. Since I love Orly polishes, I stuck with their line and am now trying Nailtrition. After only a few days, I can feel a difference in the strength of my nails -- fingers crossed.

                    I followed the directions like it stated and within days I can see my nails growing and getting stronger. I have very brittle nails and it splits. It has been almost a week and i see a huge difference in my nails.
