I’ve always been envious of women with nice nails. Until recently, I had a horrible habit — I’d been biting my nails since childhood, to the point where I nearly didn’t have any nails left! I know, I know… gross, right?
When I was old enough, I started getting acrylic tips put on so I could have beautiful nails, albeit fake. Of course, I wasn’t fixing the problem — I was only making my natural nails weak, peeling, and brittle from wearing fakes all the time!
About 2 months ago, I finally kicked the habit and let my nails grow. Yay! Unfortunately, years of wear and tear on my tips caused them to be extremely weak and prone to breakage. My goals for perfect nails seemed unobtainable… until three weeks ago.
Ladies, I have to tell you — when I purchased OPI Nail Envy Natural Nail Strengthener, I was skeptical. I’ve tried literally every strengthener on the market and was less than pleased with the results. At the relatively hefty price of $17, I was also a little apprehensive about how well this would work.
However, all of the reviews I read online really raved about this product. I figured if it didn’t work, at least I’d only be out seventeen bucks (ha).
The instructions explain to apply two coats of OPI Nail Envy strengthener on the first day, and then one coat every other day for one week. After a week has passed, you’re supposed to remove the strengthener and try again.
Within two weeks, I was truly amazed by the results. All of the reviews I’d read had been right! My formerly brittle nails became strong and flexible, and they weren’t peeling anymore. I’ve been using this product for almost one month now, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
Seriously ladies, if you have the same nail issues that I did, you will definitely benefit from this product. OPI Nail Envy won’t chip or peel (apply a thin coat, though, or it might) and with regular use I’m sure you will be pleasantly surprised.
Honestly, $17 seemed a bit steep, but when you’ve tried everything else without results, it’s well worth the price!
