Im giving this product a 3 star review right now because its only the 1st week of using it. right now I will say that my nails seem harder. I have very brittle nails that are prone to breaking a lot. so right now I am pleased with it. I got it at Walgreens on sale for 1.99 which is a steal. I would recommend it for anyone to try whos nails are brittle and prone to breaking. hopefully it wont make my nails peal like it did to others.

Also I noticed when I take my b12 everyday my nails grow in faster and harder for those of you who can't find something to help their nails.

I bought this product with high hopes and was extremely disappointed. It dried out my nails, made the peeling worse and my nails didn't feel any harder. It's a clear nail polish with little "gold" specks. When you apply it, it doesn't look bad but it doesn't look pretty either. As you apply more coats of it, it makes your nails look light yellow which I would have been fine with had the product worked. I personally was not impressed with this product at all. I feel that I wasted my money on something that made my nails worse instead of better. I prefer the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Nail Hardener.

I LOVE this product -- I like growing out my nails but usually, after 3 weeks, my nails get brittle and start splitting. I used this product as a base coat and my nails were significantly stronger. I've used up the product 3 times now and will continue buying/using it. I absolutely recommend it. My sister and coworker have both tried mine and purchased their own because it worked so well!

Best nail hardener I've come across!

Would love to try this product, does it apply as bright as the pic shows? Or is it a more laid back color?

I just took off a full set of acrylics, will this work for keeping my nails from bending?
