Disappointing

I put one coat on of the nail strengthener and it started to wash off the very same day. Then I put two coats (on clean nails) thinking that would help and the very next day it started peeling off. How is it going to strengthen my nails when it won't even stay on. I am absolutely disappointed in this product as well as their base and top coat.

Did absolutely nothing

My nails aren't in terrible shape; however, they tend to be thin and on my most-used fingers, they tend to peel. I had high hopes for this, especially based on reviews. I used it per the directions and it did nothing to help the peeling or strengthening. I would not waste money on this product.

mid life miracle

Long ago I gave up on my nails, trying to just handle them short to curtail their peeling and splitting tendencies. Last march I had a shellac mani to be fancy for a wedding and it ruined my already quite pathetic nails. After several months of trying to grow out a vertical split that had resulted I searched for something that would strengthen them enough to at least get back to normal shorties. Well, I saw this product and the reviews and thought i would give it a try. I did follow directions to the letter, which helped and it was at a vacation time for me so I could stay on track. After the first two weeks I had never seen my nails so 'non splitty' , and something in this is definitely fortifying them. After the initial two weeks I went into the 2 week every other day schedule, and I went ahead and purchased the soy remover as well. Pros: much 'cleaner' product line than any I see. Virtually no odor or strong smell, makes application pleasant. Products work better than any I ever used on my mid 50's nails! Cons: none yet, and I just ordered from the Labor day sale. I am tossing my collection of prior types of nail polishes I've accumulated. I just think these are better for me and work better.
