Today, I am reviewing Essence Studio Nails Strong Nail Hardener. Keep reading to know how it fared for me.
Super resistance – here we go! The ultra strong nail hardener strengthens and hardens brittle nails. The fast-drying nail polish is so full of power that there are a few things to take note of: it contains formaldehyde, so it’s important to massage some oil or fat into your cuticles. Use for a maximum of three weeks. Always apply for two days and then take a break for one day.

My Experience with Essence Studio Nails Ultra Strong Nail Hardener:
Starting from the packaging of the product, the nail hardener comes in a nice and metallic silver glass bottle. The cap is also of the same color. The body has silver sticker on it, which has the brand name and product name written in grey and white fonts. The packaging does not contain anything like product description or ingredients list. Overall, the packaging is nice and beautiful.
The applicator is of good quality. The bristles are soft and they spread the product nicely. I have been noticing from quite a few months that my nails have become weak and brittle. Hence, this was an alarming situation for me that my nails need some extra care. Apart from adding some dietary supplements I picked some nail care stuff also.
This nail hardener is transparent. It does not have any color or tint. The smell of the product is typical nail polish smell, which was initially bothering for me. But this is totally a matter of personal choice. The smell fades away in few minutes after application. The consistency of the product is quite thin and watery. While, searching on net I found that it contains formaldehyde, which is not considered safe for skin.
The brand suggests using the product for 3 weeks only with a one day pause for every two days. So, this one has become a high maintenance product for me now. The nail hardener promises to give strengthened nails. And yes, it really works. It has thickened my nails and they do not break easily as they previously did. Overall, I quite like the product. But, you really need to be careful while applying the product and avoid its contact with the skin.
