After having shellac done, followed by me applying fake nails shortly after, my nails were in terrible condition. They were peeling and incredibly soft. I saw a lot of reviews saying it was amazing but wasn't completely convinced. But trust me when I say this product is worth every dollar! My only advice is to be patient and follow the steps and I guarantee you that your nails health will be restored. Also keep up your nail care routine on top of it. I usually remove it and reapply immediately if it is looking slightly flaky, rather than applying layers on top, but that is just me. Do yourself a favor and get this as soon as possible. It is something you will keep buying!
I love this base coat. Ever since having this product recommended to me from a friend I've been using this base every time I do a manicure. When this is applied it dries quickly and helps colour polishes go on smoothly. This products stops dark colours from bleeding into my natural nail. It also helps to keep your manicure for up to about one and a half weeks. I have also found this product to be a great adhesive for putting on gems for nail art. It keeps the gem from budging or falling off for much longer than your manicure will last. Although this is a pricer product, I think it's worth the splurge if you want to keep your natural nails healthy and your manicures last longer.
I was reading a beauty Q&A column and one girl was asking how to get stronger nails that wouldn't split so easily. The writer suggested using the OPI Nail Envy. I bought it myself because I wasn't noticing any changes with the Sally Hansen bottle I had bought that was supposed to help grow & strengthen nails.
I bought mine at ULTA (they usually always have a $3.50 off your $10 purchase coupon you can use in stores) for $16 (well, $12.50 w/coupon). You can even find it at Target these days. I hadn't spent that much on a nail treatment before and I really hoped that this one would work. Sure enough it did.
You first apply two coats to clean buffed nails and then every other day add a coat. one right on top of the other, at the end of the week take it all off with remover and start the process over. After a month you should notice a big difference. I'm two months in and have only used half of the bottle, so don't worry about you're supply.
I paint my nails often (2 or 3 times a week) so I use two coats as my base and then paint over it. This works just as well. I think it helps in two ways: 1) The formula really does make a difference, my nails are longer and stronger. 2) You're always putting new coats on so you don't pick at your nails as often as you may have in the past. I used to pick at the tips when they would split, but I've stopped doing that because I don't want to mess up my nail designs.
Final thoughts: It's worth it. If you are considering it, just get it!
BEST Nail Strengthener, EVER!
I swear by OPI's Original Nail Envy. It is the best and the only nail strengthener that has given me stronger nails. I have very, very thin and weak nails that constantly peel, bend, chip, and break easily. I finally took the time to do some research to find "the best nail strengthener" and I found that OPI Original Nail Envy popped up everywhere with high reviews. So, I decided to try it. Sure enough (and to my surprise), after a few applications, my nails were becoming significantly stronger and were able to grow out, without any chipping or breaking!
I apply two thin coats of Original Nail Envy under my nail polish. Some say to apply additional coats throughout the week, however, since I wear mine under my nail polish, I find that the two coats is enough to last throughout my manicure. I understand that it is more expensive than other nail strengtheners in the market, but this is the ONLY one that has worked for me and has consistently given my nails amazing results. The bottle lasts a long time and the formula stays consistent with every use. Overall, it's well worth the price if you're determined strengthen your natural nails!
base coat of the century. a layer in its own. alot of other base coats melt under the colour layers but you can see the effect of this work all the time it's in.contact with your nails. the different categories of nails covered by all of the nail envy range are vast so there's something to help everyone out there!
Not as good as the hype
I bought this as I had used nail extensions and gel polishes for a couple of months and my nails broke very easily. I heard this was great and would resolve my nail issues. It certainly does that and I am so happy with this product. I seen a dramatic difference from the first application. Your nail gets stronger and slightly curved as curved nails are harder to break than poker straight nails. I would definitely purchase a new one of these. I use this as my base coat for any nail polishes and it works just great.
