Most Helpful Positive Review Great product!!! Read instructions!!
Reading the negative reviews I don't think people understand this isn't meant as a base coat, if you read the instructions it tells you to apply a new coat everyday and then on the 7th day remove it (I keep mine on for longer then that, and sometimes only do a new coat for 3-4 days keep it on for a week or two and then remove when I'm tired of looking at the chipped polish lol). This does work! My nails are so much healthier when done. They aren't brittle, and don't peel. It is meant to be thick and goopy, it is a treatment NOT A BASE COAT. I recommend this to everyone!
Most Helpful Critical Review Waste of Money
I bought this thinking it would be a good formaldehyde-free alternative to the regular nail envy. I've been using it as directed for over a month, and my nails look even worse than before I started using it. My nail beds seem much weaker, and my peeling has become more severe. You're supposed to apply this every other day, and it doesn't even stay on my nails until the next application. It chips away almost immediately, especially near the tips and cuticles. I can't really think of anything good to say about it, other than it has a nice, shiny finish.

It was not helpful for my peeling nails. It did not stay on very long, before it chipped off
This product is amazing

I have very soft nails that peel. This is my second week of using this product and they are already stronger than ever.
Not so great.
Charley from Yuma AZ
This product is easy to put on, but does not stay on. It wears off in a day or two. Have used it for almost two weeks, replacing it as it peels off, and have not seen any real improvement, as yet. Will keep trying.

I had a sample bottle of the original green label one and I used the entire thing, when I used it consistently I could see a difference.
So I figured this would be be a better product, not having formaldehyde. But when I use one or two layers on the first day it's fine sometimes. Sometimes it peels and flakes off, and you're supposed to reapply over and over every two days but once it starts chipping then the texture on your nails gets weird. I try to keep applying but I do get lazy and I swear it's dried out my nails as I stop using it. I had taken gel nails off after having h the me on for about 3 weeks, so I put this on to help them. They still felt tight and dry.
This isn't as good as the one with the green label, I want to finish it because I spent almost $20 on it and no longer have the box, but it doesn't help my nails at all. And I have peeling nails.

I usually try to wait an ample amount of time before I write a review. I'm on the second week of using this product and so far what I have noticed is that my nails haven't broken, chipped or split. As a matter of fact, they have grown longer and seem to be strong.
I'm very happy with the product so far.
Grandma from Tucson, AZ
I am following the directions except for me it works better if I remove the polish and start over on the fourth day.
I have bought this more than once.
KAK from WEST CHESTER, OHIO
Put it on before I paint my nails. The product seems to work fine BUT it thickens up with half the bottle left and it is impossible to use. A lot of waisted product and MONEY.
Won't buy it again
Rosa from Bx, NY
the product became gloppy soon after I used it. It can no longer be applied & the bottle is full! Waste of $$
This is excellent!

This is a
Game changer for me. I believe formaldehyde free is the huge difference. Great product!!
Connie from Tennessee
Bought the product to help strengthen/protect natural nails after having dip powder nails removed. After applying the first 2 coats as recommended, product peeled off halfway down my nails the very next day. I was babying my nails because they were still tender from the removal process, so this should not have happened. Returned immediately.
Glynn from Indiana
I bought this in hopes that it would help my peeling nails after gel polish removal. It sticks to your nails everywhere except where they are peeling! Go figure, I thought that was the point. Highly disappointed ☹️
Not for me...
MyPoorNails from Maryland
I work retail and it's caused my nails to become thin and they peel all the time. I bought this in the hopes it would work for me. It didn't. After the third day of using it, the polish itself started to crack and peel off my nails. I had to peel off some of the polish myself because it was catching and snagging on my clothes. I think I'll try the original nail envy nail strengthener polish. It just stinks I'm stuck with this polish that doesn't work for me.

I was really hoping OPI Nail Envy (sensitive & peeling)-nail strengthen would help my nails - but it did just the opposite. My nails are peeling and breaking more after using this product. I carefully followed the directions! When the nail polish did NOT work I continued following the directions, and also kept my hands out of the kitchen sink, and stopped cleaning to see if this would help. My nails looked worse.
My bottle is almost full - but I stopped using it and I already see my nails improving from the damage it did.
I do NOT recommend this nail polish! (Don't waste your money!)
Flosdie from Texas
Ican tell a difference in my nails after one week. Prevents peeling nails.
Love this - works well and no smell!
GG VA from Richmond, VA
This is the version without formaldehyde which eliminated the odor. Really like the product and not having to smell that for hours afterwards.
Great, functional product
S from Washington, DC
I bought this to address peeling and splitting in my nails--probably brought on by dish washing and household chores. This has better staying power than the Sally Hansen I used previously. Two quick coats will protect my nails for a week!
Would buy again!
MMW from Atlanta
Easy to apply. Hoping it will prevent my nails from peeling and act as a barrier to any drying effects from nail polish.
Junebug618 from Oklahoma
I love this stuff. I have used it for years and it keeps my nails looking good. My nails were brittle and peeling and I had to keep them cut back because they were ugly but since I started using the OPI strengthener they get so long that I need to trim them. Give it a few months to work though, it needs time to condition your nail surface.
Do not recommend this product
Kbell from Oklahoma
Very poor quality!! Chips very easily!! Sorry that I spent the money on this product. Would not recommend!!
Works like a Charm!
charlie from oh
Works very well. My hands are always in water and it makes my nails soft and they break easily. This strengthens my nails and lets them grow.
I would buy this product again.
Norma from Augusta, GA
I like this product. Wish it came in more colors.
Will give it another month to work
Disappointed from Kentucky
Been using a couple of months with no results.
Alice Ann from S. Central, Pa
I started using this about a year ago. I always had beautiful long and strong nails but, then everything changed. My nails broke, chipped and peeled. After a few months of using this strengthener my nail are beautiful again.
Hope for stronger nails

I have been getting gel manicures for about 2 years. Recently, I had problems with my nails splitting along ridges that formed along the length of several of my nails. After having the gel removed last week, I started using this product. It appears to be working. It is a little hard to remove, but eventually comes off.
