This post is for all my beauty product addicts! :)
I came across this awesome nail strengthener, by OPI, and as this one actually worked & showed amazing results, after a few weeks of testing it out, I knew I had to share it with you!
In the past, I have tried a lot of nail strengtheners, from low cost brands, to high end ones...(essence, deborah, mavala, alessandro...) nothing seemed to be working!
I even tried taking food supplements for my nails...sometimes this would helped a bit...but NOTHING showed such an amazing results, as the OPI ORIGINAL NAIL ENVY!
Check out why I love this product so much, in my review video!

I bought this product in Muller beauty store in Croatia, as I couldn't find it at my local Sephora in Italy...
I heard so many good reviews about this product, from other beauty bloggers, so I really, really wanted to try out this product myself, as my nails were going through a bad period, and nothing seemed to be able to help them out in "recovering"...
When I found out the price of this nail strengthener was around 30€ (a bit more than 200kn, in croatian currency...)...my heart skipped a beat!
But as I really wanted to try this product out (I trusted all these positive reviews I've read about it!), I decided to take a chance and buy it anyway!
Luckily, it really paid off, because after just a few weeks of application, I started noticing visible results of improvement in the appearance, strength and length of my nails!
Here is how I tried to justify having spent 30€ on a bottle of a nail strengthener, to myself:
Instead of going to the nail salon to get my nails done, or put a gel coat on them, I "invested" the money in the OPI Nail Envy, and now I have beautiful, natural, long & strong nails! :)
This explanation does make sense, doesn't it? ;)
Now I could really recommend this nail strengthener to anybody who is struggling with weak nails that break easily.
I don't know the price of it in Italy, because I wasn't able to track it down, but, from one of my american subscribers, I found out this product is much cheaper in the USA!
In Ulta it retails at about 17$ (whereas the regular OPI color nail polishes are around 9$ each!).
As OPI is made in the USA, it does make sense that it costs less there...but I wasn't expecting the difference in price to be soo huge!

You can use the Nail Envy as a base coat, but also as a top coat, to make the colour of your regular nail polish last longer!
Here is what the instructions for application say:
"For maximum results, apply two coats of Original Nail Envy to each nail. Then, apply one coat every other day. After one week, use any OPI Polish Remover to remove all nail lacquer (if present) and Original Nail Envy. Begin application again. Original Nail Envy works best as a base coat in actual contact with the natural nail. It can also be used as a top coat over nail lacquer."
1.) To apply, begin at the center of the nail, approximately 1/32" from the cuticle. Let the bristles fan out for maximum coverage. With one smooth stroke, brush out to the free edge.
2.) Apply to each side of the initial brush stroke, overlapping slightly.
ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, nitrocellulose, propyl acetate, tosylamide/formaldehyde resin, isopropyl alcohol, triphenyl phosphate, trimethyl pentanyl diisobutyrate, butyl alcohol, formaldehyde,stearalkonium bentonite, camphor, diacetone alcohol, ethyl tosylamide, benzophenone-1, citric acid, hydrolized wheat protein, dimethicone, calcium pantothenate, CI 60725 (violet 2), CI 77891 (Titanum Dioxide).
