Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I have used this product and Rock Top Coat for years and I absolutely LOVE them. It makes my nails harder than anything else on the market. My nails grow so fast and after a couple of coats it feels like they are as hard as fake nails. I will always purchase these two products as long as they continue to make it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this stuff I bought this a week ago, then did my nails. Next day I cleaned toilets with bleach, and Comet. I think this stuff has to wear off. It wore great. 5 stars or more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me Purchased this and did a manicure with it on a Saturday afternoon. Went out clothes shopping on Sunday and by the time I got home my polish had chipped off three different nails. What a waste of time spent on doing a manicure only to have it chip off in less than 24 hours, terrible. Returning this and trying something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on the market I've been using this for years and it's the only kind I use. For everyone that says it didn't work for them: you MUST use the top coat and base coat for the best results. The top coat seals the color and gives it an awesome shine. And it works with all nail polishes! Thank me later ;-)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not all that great. I bought this to try a new basecoat/strengthener. I tried this under multiple shades of polish and a day later, my polish was chipped and peeling but oddly enough, it made polish removing a task. Alone, this is an OK strengthener, but I would not recommend it as a base coat for polish and would not purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It "Rocks'! I have tried several different brands of base coat hardener over the years, this is by far the best! I have not experienced the peeling or bubbling issues. I apply 2 THIN layers of base coat, allowing each coat to completely dry. That is followed by Rock top coat - OR - 2 coats of color and Rock top coat. I always use use a UV light to set the top coat, my nails will be dry to touch and light rub but the "hard" set occurs overnight. The process does take time, but I can go two weeks between manicures and everyone thinks my nails are fake!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff! I have been using this for years and I LOVE it!! Really does make your nails rock hard, and combined with the top coat of the same brand, makes your nail polish last longer!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth my $8 I purchased this product in stores for about 8 bucks, and I wasn't impressed. I applied two coats to my bare nails and after a few days I noticed they started to crack. my nails began chipping and peeling, it was horrible. As a hardener, my experience with this product was horrible. As a top coat, I loved it. It was sleek, dried quickly and held off chipping of the nail polish. Overall, I expected a lot more than I got but if you're looking for a good top coat, this is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I was so surprised at how really well this worked on my nails. My daughter noticed how long my nails have gotten. Now she borrows my Rock Hard all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually Worked I wish I had taken pictures of my nails before I faithfully starting using this product. I have read some of the reviews that were negative and it doesn't seem like they tried it more than once or twice. I have used it so much that my bottle is almost completely empty. When was the last time you used any of your nail polish that much? The bubbles have popped up since I got about 3/4 of the way done with the bottle. I am not surprised and its fine with me because I often keep my nails clear anyway. My nails are absolutely beautiful now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Happy.... Unfortunately, after getting all excited about this product when I learned about it, I am disappointed. I do not think it is worth the $8.00+ I paid for it. I had no issues w/bubbles, but the 1st time I used it, I only put 1 coat on, and it scraped off the very next day leaving white streaks where it peeled. The 2nd time I used it I put 2 coats on, thinking it would last a bit longer, and it did -all but 1 more day. I really do not see any difference with this product then with the $.99 basecoat I usually use. I will not buy it again nor will I reccomend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best top coat i love this product, the only place that sells it is Sally's... I use it every time i polish my nails, and it lasts so much. Right now i have polish from 2 weeks ago, and no chips. you see the nail growth and that's all, no chips. My friends all use it and love it... the price is outstanding. directions to use. after polish, use as top coat .. then use for 3 days as top coat. will make your polish last... (remember to use a base coat as well)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Stuff I have not had the bubbling issues with this product that some other reviewers have mentioned. I use three coats of Rock Hard as a nail strengthener, with no other polish or topcoat. Even with 3 coats, it dries quickly to a smooth, glassy finish, and it really does make my nails "rock hard". On the nails, this strengthener seems to last forever, and the only reason need to remove it is because, as another reviewer mentioned, the nails have grown out noticeably from the cuticle area. I personally experience no tip or side wear at all with this product. I am an active homemaker, so I have to credit the durability of the strengthener itself rather than anything I am doing to prevent wear and tear. This product does not contain harmful chemicals like many strengtheners do, and I feel safe in keeping it on my nails all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the best but still works My nails are notorious for being thin, breaking at the nail bed, and splitting into layers. I have tried a lot of products for nail hardeners and growth formulas. So far this seems to be working as a nail hardener and makes a great top coat. I have tried a few products that make your nails grow faster and is a decent thickener so I would say this one is either at the bottom of the best or at the top of the average. Not bad for the price either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best base coat! Dries quickly.Polish really lasts longer using this product.Its worth the extra money spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for me... This hardner I use as a base coat and top coat and just alone on my nails.I have long natural nails. I have never had the bubbles people talk about with this. The secret to not having bubbles is to put thin coats and let them dry completely between each coat. I have had my polish last for 8 days without a chip. It says on the bottle to appy every day.....if you can do that , it really helps to make your polish last and to keep your nails hard ! I LOVE the stuff !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fragile Nails Beware...This stuff WORKS! Well let me start off that I am not a nail professional. My fingernails have been splitting and breaking the last few months. I've tried a few of Sally Hansens products only to feel let down when the results were no so glowing. I was needing something to strengthen and provide a protective coating and this was the golden ticket! I can type with out worring that my nails will split further or crack off. My thumbnails are hard as rocks! The results thus far are fantastic!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't Harden my Nails I purchased this a couple years ago because I have weak nails, and the cashier at my local Sally's recommened this. I Used it for several weeks to a month, and my Nails did not seem stronger. Will not purchase again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I finally found one that works better than ever! I always use Nails Alive because it really works, but it has harmful chemicals. I tried Rock Hard and not only does it not contain those chemicals but it actually makes my nails even harder than Nails Alive! This is going to be my every day hardener from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product!! I have been using this product for about 3 weeks and it has totally changed my nails! I had acrylics and gels for years. When I decided to remove them, my nails were a mess! I've tried everything in the last year, and nothing has helped.....until now! My nails are growing and look beautiful! I have found that if you apply it very slowly you don't get the little bubbles that others have complained about.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hardener It works great as a hardener and has made my nails grow really long but the only thing that sucks is that if you use it as a base coat you get lots of little bumps and bubbles which does not look great.

Which nail lacquer is recommended with this product?

Asked by: Vivian20
I just use it by itself for clear polish on my nails.  Works much better than just clear nail polish.

Does this really work 

Asked by: Chew chew
Yes. I have never been able to grow my nails and this is the first thing I’ve used that seems to make them grow fast and hardens them so they don’t break as easily. It was amazing to have nails to paint for once in my life, I’ve bought this product over and over (I’ve not used it as a base cost)
