5.0 out of 5 stars This actually works! Like... REALLY works! 14 Sep 2011
If you've never tried Mavala Scientifique nail hardener, well... you should. I was introduced to this stuff by my mother around 20 years ago back when I was trying out every nail strengthening/hardening/protecting product I could lay my little teenage hands on, and finding (to my frustration) that none of them worked. Naturally, being a teenage know-it-all, I rolled my eyes at my mother's many suggestions that I try painting a little of the liquid in this tiny little jar of hers onto my nails, but when I finally deigned to humour her and give it a go? Yeah. It worked. This stuff is amazing... I have no idea how it works, just that it does, and have turned many of my friends onto the stuff over the years. It's just a shame that it's such a total pain to find it these days.

If you pick up a bottle, here is all you need to do: paint the tiniest amount of the liquid onto the very tips (like, the last 1mm - no more than 2mm max - honestly, don't paint it further down the nail than this as it won't help) of each fingernail. Sit there for maybe 30 seconds to a minute waiting for it to absorb/evaporate (something definitely sinks in, and I'm sure some more vaporous stuff disappears into the ether)... you're done for the day. Repeat this process once a week, maybe twice if you're a little obsessive like me. If you paint your nails, you need to do this UNDER your nail polish or it won't work. It won't leave any kind of coating on your nails, so you can paint over the top of the nail hardener, no problems.

I absolutely PROMISE you that you will find, within a pretty quick timeframe, that your nails will stop splitting apart and peeling and breaking at the tips. The ends will also seem much more resistant to chipping and breaking when you bash them against things.

4.0 out of 5 stars instant solution to the problem 16 May 2012
Verified Purchase
Bought this after all the Sally Hansen products failed to live up to expectations.

Immediately, the flakes on the nails sort of disappear and after a day or two, the nails are definitely longer and stronger. They don't flake so much and they don't bend when touched.

After a day or two, I reapply the product and there have been no problems.

Be careful not to put it on the cuticle or finger tip itself. It really does strengthen everything it touches, so you can get slightly thicker skin at the very edge of the nail. Otherwise, this is a great product.

Mavala nail hardener does exactly what it says it does. Unlike other 'nail hardeners' which simply coat the nail with plastic to try to stop it cracking, this product is absorbed into the nail leaving no trace on surface & actually hardens the nail. Mine were down to the quick & were causing me pain when I tried Mavala. thank God I did as now they're growing normally. I apply 2-3 time a week.
this bottle lasts for months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant product 19 July 2013
By Kezza
Verified Purchase
My nails were very badly damaged by gels only once was enough to ruin them - the nail beds seriously damaged and broken down and split as low as they could go. I tried a few different strengtheners but honestly this has been a godsend - my nails are like new after using twice a week for a couple of months I now have a bit of length in them and they are strong and not splitting like they would have before. I will always now use this product and have even got one in spare.

Decided to try this on my very soft nails because I remember using it years ago. Wasn't sure that it was working at first, but the longer I use it, the stronger my nails seem to be getting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 25 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
I chose this product as on occasion i have soft nails which will break particularly under heavy use, winter weather horses etc., so i thought i would try to toughen them up. After 3 months of perseverance i have thrown it away. My nails are worse than they have ever been. Cracked, split, layered and broken painfully short. I could not recommend this product to anyone.
