Can anyone recommend a nail strengthener, my nails split and break all the time. I bought a crystal nail after reading that might help but haven't noticed any improvement.

I've been using a cuticle oil recently and it's made such a difference. I apply it in the morning and at night. My nails are growing and strengthening brilliantly.

Thank you can you wear nail colour over the top of opi nail envy?
Spam88 · 19/02/2018 16:47
Yep! I use it instead of my normal basecoat when my nails are looking a bit neglected.

I do find it makes my nails a bit yellow though but does restore their condition and strength

Just bought it today based on these recommendations. Will let you know how I get on

Use OPI nail envy, followed by any colour you like and topped off with Seche Vite top coat. Your nails will be really strong.

I didn’t get on with any of the OPI nail envy products. My go to strengthener is the Rimmel nail rescue, this transformed my nails really quickly.
Cuticle oil really helps too.

Seche Vite is the best thing ever invented for nails. It bonds all the layers of polish together and makes it dry really fast as well as making them strong.
God knows what chemicals are in it, but it really works. I have both nail envy and seche vite on 3 monthly renewal from amazon because I can't live without them.

Nailtiques Formula 2 on nails, Solar Oil on cuticles.
Seche Vite is fantastic too!

I second (third?) the OPI Nail Envy, coloured polish and top coat of Seche Vite recommendations, but make sure you buy Matte Nail Envy (aka the original one) if you're using it as a base coat.

Opi Nail Envy. It's rescued my nails from near-death after acrylics .

Found this just at the right time. I hope you're all right as I've just placed an order. Thanks OP for asking just the right question:)

Have had my nail envy a few days. Used it twice and I love it. Nails have a healthy shine. It doesn't smell or chip. Feels natural. My nails are very short but I have hope they won't be thin and weak anymore.
