I used to have strong and long nails. Then like a lot of other women I got artificial nails so I would not have to redo my polish all the time. Big mistake. After I finally took the artificial nails off I could not grow long nails on my own again. I tried every nails strengthener on the market. Nothing seemed to work. Then one day I ordered a OPI nail polish kit from HSN. The Nail Envy came as part of the Kit. I have been using it for about one month and my nails are finally growing out! I put a fresh coat on about every other day to keep them strong, I take off the polish once a week and start fresh. The only problem I have is that it is a little thick going on and is not totally smooth due t the fibers that keep the nails strong. I can over look this as this is what is helping my nails grow out. I just us a color OPI polish over top when I want a look other than natural and then that polish give it the smooth look. I would recommend this to any one trying to grow or their nails. You just need to remember to keep applying more and redo each week or the strength will not be there of course since it is the coat polish that is keeping the nails from chipping or breaking.
