Nail Hardener and Thickener is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! Just purchased this a couple days ago. Iv been trying to save my real nails for a couple weeks now. after having acrylics for a couple months. My nails are always weak, & bendy & thin. I decided to try this one. & so far my results are pretty good. I can deffinetly feel a difference within a few days days. My nails do feel a litttle more hard.. If you put it on your nail without nail polish... it doesn't really leave a shine. But I use it twice a day as a top coat & it leaves my nails pretty shiny. Looking forward to using it many more days & curious to see my further results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposedto do! I bought this product last month. Sally's had a buy 2 get one free deal going on until July 31, 2016. I'm glad I bought this product. I've been using it for a few days now and I'm really liking it. My nails are hard and the polish dries pretty fast and it doesn't chip like Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Hardener does.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good But... I searched high and low for my HG top coat and have been committed to this one for at least three years. I have stuck with it because my pedicures last about two weeks...sometimes three, depending on the brand of nail polish I use. My manicures last about four to five days with minimal tip wear and I wash my hands alot. By day five, I want to change the color anyway. Also, it is thin and applies like a dream. There is absolutely no shrinkage, which is very important to me and the product does not thicken in the bottle like other top coats I know. And it hardens my nails. I have really thin nails and this top coat definitely gives them strength. What I do not like about this top coat is that on my nails, it takes forever and a day to dry, no matter which nail polish brand I use. And I only apply two thin coats...hardly ever do I apply three coats when the color is not opaque enough. I do my manicures in the morning and have to wait two whole hours before I can do anything with my hands. Then I go to bed at night, like eleven and wake up the next day with sheet marks. Makes absolutely no sense to me. It is also not shiny on the second day with all the sheet marks and all. So I only get a half a day of a perfect manicure. I cannot do this anymore. I am back on the search for a faster drying top coat that has the same good qualities I like about this one. I am going to try Hoofer's Choice next. Let's see if that will work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good... This is a decent, inexpensive top coat. It goes on easy and smooth. It is a good hardener also and my polish usually keeps in shape for just about a week (depending). It also dries pretty quick. The only "negative" thing I can say about it is that I am one of those people that prefer a top coat with a super, duper high shine/gloss. This does not have that. Don't get me wrong, it has a nice, shiny finish, I just like it super wet looking. Overall, I would say a really good product for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty decent nail hardener I typically use this as a top coat. While it isn't that shiny, it does make my polish last longer and protect it. I work in the service industry, so my polish is prone to chipping from using my hands so much. But this hardener has actually caused my polish to last 1.5 times as long as it usually would. It does take a little while to dry. By my nails do feel harder. They used to bend and peel very easily and now they are much less prone to breakage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great value Works great at strengthening without lots of peeling like most strengtheners do on me. Price is excellent. After reading reviews here, I decided to not use it as my top coat because it doesn't have tons of shine. So I use the Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat by ACI as my top coat. I use this alone with a top coat or I wear this under my color with the Gelous as my top coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish they never changed it I have used this product since the 1990's and it is a good top coat. It is tough. It doesn't get chippy. However, they changed it several years ago and I am not as happy with it. The new formula is less glossy than it used to be. It used to have a glassy, almost wet look and was even tougher than it is now. It is still a good product and an excellent value. You get a lot for very little cost and it is still tougher than the standard drug store/department store top coat. That being said, I still wish they would change it back. It was STELLAR!!
