Thank you @Slickk and others who have commented on their experience with this stuff. My husband’s been complaining about his nails constantly breaking, resulting in ragged edges. Mine are not as bad (soft) as they were when my life was one big ball of stress, but they still break more regularly than I like. So… I bought a bottle for both of us to try! Fingers crossed for good results!

My nails feel very strong! I've been using the product as directed, since August 11, so basically three weeks. My thumbnails seriously feel like they little pieces of steel. :lol: I occasionally use them to pry things open, now, where before, I'd use a tool.

My DH has also been using it for his fragile, peel- and chip-prone nails (due to meds he's on), and has definitely noticed that they're not chipping/peeling! That's amazing, right there! I think he's not using enough, although he's resisting my advice on how to apply. Men...:lol: This, from a man who has never had (or observed) a manicure/pedicure. :lol:

Yes @nala ! The OPI product and Jojoba oil (use it twice a day+) have been nail savers!! My nails haven’t been this healthy in years.

@nala My DH uses this daily, as he has very thin nails that peel/split. Very quickly, his nails improved strength. Not long ago, for whatever reason(s), he neglected to use the product for a week. His nails started to peel again. So he's back on the regimen.

I will suggest that he use jojoba oil as well. Thanks, @Slickk!

I really like the OPI nail repair. I also use a Jojoba oil. I’ve been using these products since about September, and I’d say my nails are definitely stronger.
I also really like Londontown (Milky color) polish. Very nice and long lasting. Good luck!!
Edited to show a pic of the polish. I think this is either one or two coats.

Any edible oil will do, if you like to eat fries with your hands for example you will get the benefit of great natural nail treatment. I kid you not!
Essential oils may sound great but they are drying.

Good luck. The Londontown I have only found at Amazon. I find the OPI repair mode ($25) at local drugstores. Come back with your results. :)

@diamondringlover Yes. Do take a before pic with gratuitous bling :) Also, admittedly I used that stuff a tad more than recommended. I find it soothing to apply product to my nails for some reason :lol:

@Amber St. Clare Omgoodness thank you so much!! I began the natural nail journey back in August when I was not working. I was using the OPI nail repair and jojoba oil (mixed by me w/ vitamin e) multiple times daily. I also always have OPI Nail envy on hand.
When I went back into work, setting up my classroom, I knew I needed some cover to prevent breakage. This was when I leaned heavily on the Nail envy (I like the matte finish a lot since it looks all natural but is strong). I continue oiling my nails at least twice a day, fingertips, cuticles and knuckles.
A couple weeks ago I found the Londontown Milky color that has rave reviews. I missed some color and really love the subtle color of this polish. I can use one coat or have added a coat a day and it becomes a lovely natural light pink.
Here is the color with three coats.

I literally have to cut my nails down now because they get too long! Hope that helps!!

Hoping my nails look half as good as yours!

It's so funny how whenever I drop in on PS, I find something I needed to know about! Since having the baby, my nails have just been NOT IT, y'all. I am doing too much washing and things with my hands for my nails to keep up. I've been using press-ons which look great but idk that I am overall really a fake nail person. So I'm definitely going to try this!

Decided to try this magic potion based on this thread. Right now it’s on sale at ULTA in case anyone needs to restock.

Come back with your results @monarch64 I also recommend oiling your nails with jojoba oil in between (if you have time after washing). Good luck!!

Found this thread and was curious if someone can help me understand what it's like when you apply it onto your nails. Does it fully absorb in like a serum or does it leave a "layer" like a top coat or a base coat?

I used an Avon product for nail strength possibly 20+ years ago but they discontinued it overtime. I prefer a serum like product and was wondering if this might be the substitute I've been needing and forgone all these years. TIA!

I caved and ordered this from Amazon (along with the nail envy polish), I hope it's worth it! My nails have been terrible since my gel manicure back in February

its weird, it dries almost as soon as you put it on and does not leave the nails shinny and I am now at day 9 or 10 I think and so far hasnt really helped my nails, I only have issues with my pointer fingers.....

@ExplorePS it soaks right into the nail quickly though after a week or so I did notice a residue on the edges. I also like to oil my nails with jojoba oil. I find that helps a lot.
Any nail regimen needs to be followed for enough time to allow the new nail to grow in and the damage to grow out.

@winetime12 good luck. Let us know your results.

@diamondringlover I am sorry it’s not helping you. Have you tried the OPI nail envy or have you tried oiling your nails?
