Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Nail Strengthener Review, Swatches

I have very brittle nails and I kept trying different base coats every now and then.
Once while I was looking for a new base coat I saw this beauty on offer for like 30% less and the blogger in me you know kept reading thousands of reviews about it before finally picking it up! :P
It was a steal price and I felt like I wouldn't regret even if it didn't work for me ;) So did it work for me like it did for the big crowd of reviewers or failed me like it did the other group of them?
Read on and you will know it in a while :)

My Views On Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Nail Hardener

As I said I picked this one up at a good discount for the first time. I have tried a few Sally Hansen nail polishes in the past but hadn't tried any real nail treatments until this one.

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Nail Strengthener

The Sally Hansen Hard As Nails nail strengthener comes in a medicinal type bottle with a thin and long brush applicator. The brush is similar to any other nail paint brush but thinner!
The actual product is clear and slightly yellow tinted. The nail strengthener has a strong smell which fades after a few minutes of application.

The brush is super handy to apply the product on your nails and is sleek enough to coat a whole nail easily.
The product is super fluid-y and spreads easily. Doesn't dry out even before you finish your application which is great :)
It sets and dries in a jiff so no complaints.

When coming to the real part about the claims - yes yes yes!
The Sally Hansen Hard As Nails nail strengthener actually strengthens my nails, doesn't stain my nails on it's own and doesn't let even the cheap roadside nail paints stain my nails when used as base coat, prevents my nails from chipping and cracking, improves nail growth and what not :D

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Nail Strengthener

It's an amazing product upto me as I have super brittle nails and they break very easily :( After starting using this product my nails have strengthened well and they look amazing ;)
I have been using this product on and off for more than a year now and I must add this point too - you will need to re-apply it every week to get the perfect strength for your nails.
Once you stop using it the strength of your nails start fading away little by little. So I would recommend to use it until your nails achieve the best phase and keep using it atleast once a month or so to help maintain them :)

Final Verdict

I find this the best nail strengthening product as it's perfectly priced and works on its own - I never took any biotin supplements or anything to supplement with the product :)
So if you are looking for a product that would help cure your brittle nails and give them the right protection you can blindly pick this one :P
