Sally Hansen Hard as Nails
Advantages: Strengthens and protects nails
As I've stated in previous review, I really enjoy applying polish to my nails and using new colours depending on my mood. Unfortunately my actual nails are pretty rubbish. You know those girls who have beautiful strong nails that grow really nicely... well I'm not one of them. My reality is weak nails that grow really slowly and split and flake all the time.
It's always the way, I spend a few weeks taking really good care of them and they get to a lovely length and then one will break and then the rest seem to follow. It was my mum that first introduced me to this product, she suffers from the same rubbishy nails as me so completely understood my frustration. She told me to pick up a bottle of this Sally Hansen Hard as Nails as she had been using it for a while and had seen a real decrease in the number to split or broken nails.
Now I'm not after witch like tallons, I just wanted to be able to grow them so they all look the same length and are reasonably tidy. I popped into Boots and it was easier enough to find this product as it was clearly displayed with the rest of the nail care products. A bottle cost £4.65 which seemed like a lot for what looked like a clear nail polish but if it lived up to the claims on the packaging I was willing to give it a go.
That evening, I filed my nails and then applied 2 coats of the varnish as instructed. It suggests that you should wait for each coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next and would really suggest that you do this otherwise you can experience sticky gloopy nails.
After waiting for my nails to dry completely I was impressed by their appearance, they had a lovely sheen to them and although they were lacking in colour they looled really clean and neat. They also felt immediately stronger, it was as though this varnish had provided them with reinforcemnts and they no longer had they bendiness they normally do. I actually felt like I had proper nails for a change and I was encouraged by this improvement.
I have continued to use the product for the last couple of weeks and I can say that it has definately improved the condition and appearance of my nails, they have not split or snapped and are actually all quite a nice length.
I would definately recommend this product and will continue using it on a regular basis.
Summary: Great product
