Product Review : Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Hardener

Hi Glam Royals,

I hope youre doing well. Today, I shall be reviewing one of my must-have nail products. I stumbled upon the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Hardener while I was doing my regular online shopping. You know by now that I do my manicure and pedicure by myself, so I thought that I should give it a try as I really needed something to make my nails stronger. Then I purchased  it in transparent clear and I’ve not been disappointed so far! According to Sally Hansen -“ The original strengthening treatment,Hard As Nails gives nails, a smooth,chip-resistant surface and helps to provide long-lasting protection. Nails grow longer and stronger“. Here’s my review of the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Hardener :


Background : It was in the late 1950s when Sally Hansen, together with her chemist husband pioneered a nail protection formula called Hard As Nails. Touted as “the nail clinic in a bottle,” Hard As Nails established Sally Hansen as what is now the number one brand of nail care. While Hard As Nails continues to be a best seller, Sally Hansen has developed into the leading mega brand of nail treatment and color.

Application : Shake gently. Apply to bare nails and under nail tips. Let dry. Use alone or as base coat.



  • The Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Hardener makes my nails stronger and protects them.
  • It gives a beautiful clean finish.
  • It glides smoothly on the nails.
  • It is fast drying.
  • It also keeps my nails from staining.
  • You can wear alone or as base coat.


  • It tends to flake off around the cuticle and nail tips after a few days.

Overall, the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Hardener, also called The Nail Clinic in a Bottle is a fantastic nail product which does exactly what it says. It is runnier than nail polishes, so I make sure to swipe off excess before applying to my nails. I do not do my manicure and pedicure without this awesome product anymore. I highly recommend it to everyone that needs to grow out their nails or basically want stronger and more beautiful nails. Yes, it’s not readily available but you can definitely purchase on for 2000naira only. There are other nail treatments by Sally Hansen which I would definitely try out 😀 . Have you used the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Hardener? What are your thoughts?


Hugs and Kisses,
