Product Description

Nail strengthener that, besides forming a protective barrier, prevents chipping, peeling and splitting of your nails. Instructions for use: Shake before use. Apply only to clean and dry nails. To start the treatment, apply a thin coat from the center of the nail down to the tip once a week. Let it dry and paint the nail with your favorite nail polish. After three applications, as the nail gets stronger, brush one thin coat covering the whole nail. Use once weekly. Protect the skin around the cuticles with cream. Caution: Can cause some discomfort on first use. If you feel pain, burning or persistent discomfort, remove it immediately from all nails and suspend its use. Avoid contact with cuticles and skin. Warning: Not meant for daily use. Keep out of reach of children. Keep away from heat and flames. Flammable. This product is formulated to be used once a week. Please note that, as is the case with any cosmetic product, excessive use can cause unwanted side effects. And again: if you haven't used this product before, do not cover the whole nail with the strengthener on first use. As your nails get stronger from week to week you can slowly start to cover the whole nail. This is especially important if you have very thin or brittle nails. Note: Retailers in the United States have to sell this product in the original box with correct ENGLISH LABELING AND INSTRUCTIONS printed on the cardboard box. Should you only receive the glass bottle without the box, please return the item to the seller for your own safety!

After a spell with artificial nails (which, naturally, includes an exhausted rejection of their maintainance, sanitation and cost!), my nails were roughed up quite a bit: paper thin, peely and ridged/pocked. This product certainly does what it claims, and in a matter of weeks with one night spent surface buffing and enjoying 'True Confessions of a Shopaholic' (it was *so* a girls' night), my nails have transformed. It's important to understand, however, how the active chemicals in nail hardeners work, and this should affect how you put them to use. Quimica is a Colombian-made formaldehyde or formalin based hardener, while other products are said to have protein or nylon bases. The formaldehyde/formalin tincture means that the active chemicals are very strong and effective and therefore should be used with caution and patience -- the latter of which is hard to have when you've just ripped off a set of acrylics and sworn them off for good!

With very thin nails at the onset, my double-coating on the first go was entirely too much and my nails were *almost* unbearably burny the entire evening (therefore affecting my proper enjoyment of a few Guinness and a game of pool at the local pub), and they were even super-sensitive through the next day, particularly to temperature. Starting up a regimen, as I did, of every 4-5 days removing the old layers and reapplying another double (as well as a few days of back-to-back stripping and reapplying), I believe I used too much too soon, and some of my nails began to have opaque, whitish spots and marbly, striated growth marks of the same color.

I saw all the wonderful reviews of this product and ordered it. I was so excited as my nails are very weak and brittle.

I noticed that there was a warning on the bottle stating that if a burning sensation occurs after application to remove it immediately. I figured it might sting a little but I was shocked when after 20 minutes or so I began to feel pain in my ring finger on my left hand. My finger tip and nail bed started to turn red and the pain traveled to the joint. Then as I was removing the product the pain began in other fingers on both hands. The pain continued and there was a rippling under my flesh that appeared on some fingers. The pain is mostly gone now after 2 days but this was a really scary experience.

FYI...I am the mrs. on this account....LOL I have never written a review for any product. I had fake nails for years. It got to be so much time and cost that I decided to take them off and grow my own. I was shocked at how horrible my nails looked after I removed the fake ones. They were yellow and as thin as tissue paper. For you younger ladies out there...just keep your real ones in shape and don't get fake ones. It is horrible once you decide to take them off. I heard about this on the today show. Read the reviews..yes, even the ones that said it burns. I ordered it, and got it in within a week. The first time I tried it, I applied a very light coat, and yes, it did burn. However, I stuck with it and only applied a new coat once a week and now I have nails of steel. I only use it when I totally change my nail color which now is about only once every two weeks. I am a computer tech teacher so my students see my nails all the time and the one question I get all the time is, "Who does your nails???" Well...I do! I am going to suggest two other products that have been unbelievable great too. For a base coat, I have found nothing that compares to Orly Bonder Rubberized Basecoat .6 fl oz (18 ml) Orly Bonder Rubberized Base Coat. The other product that is a must is Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Nail Coat, 0.5 Ounce
Seche Vite Fast Nail Top Coat. I can literally go for a week with out doing more that touching up the tips with my color and a layer of top coat. I hope this helps some of you. It only burns until it gets your nail bed back into good shape and now I never notice anything. My nails stay up for typing in 6 classes a DAY! THANKS AMAZON!!!

I've been using this product for a year now. I absolutely love it!!! For years I've tried every product available to make my brittle, short nails grow with very little results. I too got this from a nail salon for about $17. It was worth it. I use it every 2 days & I can go for 1 1/2 weeks w/o changing the nail polish. My nails grow & don't break now. During the summer they grew so much I actually had to trim them down a few times. I do dishes & all sorts of things that would destroy my nails but they are in great shape. I also can do my nails at home & save a bundle on manicures. Just one thing, if your nails hurt after you put it on, you're using this stuff too much. Lay off for a few days & you'll be fine. Enjoy beautiful nails!!!!

I highly recommend this product. I have been using acrylic nails for over 20 years. I decided I was tired of paying for pink and white gel and heard about this product from my moms friend. I took my nails off and since my nail bed is so small, my nails were so brittle and in such bad shape that I should have taken a picture. After using this product for a month. The difference is unbelievable. My nails are looking healthy and strong as they grow. I have a very light shade of nail polish on and I am not embarrassed anymore the way they looked before. They feel very strong and I can't wait to see them longer. If more women would know about this product, I guarantee that most nail places would go out of business. The acrylic nails are beautiful but too much of an up keep and the damage to your nail is awful... I am one that never writes a review, but I felt I had to after my experience. One thing you do have to keep in mind is when you start using this product it will burn, but once your nails are in good shape the burning sensation stops. I hope you give it a try...

From: One very happy and satisfied customer:)
