Sally Hansen 'Hard as Nails' Review

Over the past few years one of my 'go to' products has always been Sally Hansen's 'Hard as Nails'. My nails tend to dry out and crack if I don't look after them properly or if I fall into the bad habit of putting nail polish on without applying an undercoat first and I can guarantee that every time I need something to save them I turn to Hard as Nails.

The back of the packet says 'Sally Hansen HARD AS NAILS WITH NYLON protects your nails against housework, water, detergents and everyday hazards. HARD AS NAILS WITH NYLON forms a super strong, super smooth coating that reinforces the nail surface, edge and tip to help protect against chipping, splitting and breaking. Added silk protein fortifies nails. When used regularly HARD AS NAILS WITH NYLON will ensure that your nails are always protected and thus help them to grow longer, stronger and naturally more beautiful. Available in Clear and Natural.'

I've found that you only need 1-2 coats otherwise it becomes too thick and peels off very easily, especially if you've just had a hot shower or bath. My nails were at an average length but they were cracked and dry. After I filed them down a little I applied just two coats of Hard as Nails to each one then I waited a week and the results can be seen on the picture! I have quite thin nails which break really easily and go very brittle if I have my hands in water so Hard as Nails is a must have if your nails are in a similar condition because it definitely reinforces your nail and makes it harder to break. It also makes them grow a little (there's a growth specific Sally Hansen product but it costs twice the price of this one). As you can see I opted for the 'clear' option as opposed to the 'natural', which has a pink tint to it. This is because I sometimes use it as a top coat when I use nail polish, I also use it as a base coat because it protects and strengthens your nails.

I'd definitely recommend it if you want to improve your nail strength!
What's your favourite nail product?

I bought my Sally Hansen's 'Hard as Nails' from Boots for £4.75.


  1. I really need to buy this! Great post :)xx

  2. I have rubbish thin nails too and love this stuff! As a topcoat is makes my polish last ages.

    I've had great results with Burt's Bees Cuticle Butter. I know it sounds like it's just for cuticles, but after just a few weeks of rubbing this in my nails are so much stronger. Try it (and do a review!)

    He discovered that putting the plastic at the right distance from the
    lens for tighter shots from Shawn's point-of-view rendered slightly distorted images with a hint of grain, which amplified the look that he and director Manika desired. This meant we had to pull back, and that decision ultimately worked better for the film we wound up making.
