The flat-style brush makes this formula the easiest nail polish to apply. With regular application, you will have a whole new set of nails within a month. The results are long-lasting and easy to maintain. We loved how fast this product dried. It works as a quality base and top coat, prolonging the life of your manicure.
Sits at a higher price point than many of its competitors.
The Nutra Nail formula is not a polish, but rather an oil that you massage into your nail-beds and cuticles. We enjoyed how convenient it was to apply throughout the day. It takes no skill or effort – you can apply mindlessly as you watch TV. There was a noticeable difference in nail length within a few days, but more than that our cuticles felt hydrated and soft.
Has a strong smell.
Much to our surprise, this formula did not smell like garlic at all. We noticed that within a week, thin and peeling nails felt stronger. The formula itself is quite thin, making it easy to apply. We recommend using this formula as a base coat under your normal nail polish. It keeps your nails healthy while keeping your polish on for longer.
There is a slight green tint to the formula, but it's almost unnoticeable.
When applied often, the results are noticeable quickly. This Sally Hansen formula is an oil that you rub into nails and cuticles. The formula is thick and easy to rub in. We loved not having to wait for dry times – just rub it in and go. While this product does have that typical nail polish scent, we did notice it wasn't as strong as most.
This product tends to require more consistent application than most to achieve results.
This formula works wonderfully to repair damage caused by acrylic nails. We appreciated how quickly the product dried. We noticed an almost instant difference in nail strength. After a few applications, thin nails stop peeling at the ends.
While the formula builds easily, it is difficult to remove all of the layers of polish when you're ready to take it off.
We purchase every product we review with our own funds — we never accept anything from product manufacturers.
If you have dry, brittle nails that crack, peel, and break easily, a protein nail formula can restore their strength and beauty. Chances are, if you have been a serial salon manicure recipient (especially with acrylics and hard-to-remove gel polishes), your nails have become thin. A nail protein formula goes on just like a polish or topcoat, fortifying the nail so that it grows in thicker and stronger. With ingredients like collagen and protein, these often work well as base coats before you apply your normal colored lacquer. And the price is much less than going to the nail salon, at under $15 a bottle for most brands.
