Review: Sally Hansen Nail Strengthening Top Coat

Sally Hansen Double Duty
Strengthening Base & Top Coat

I had used Sally Hansen Nail paints in the past and found them to be of good quality, but this time I was looking for a nail strengthener as my nail have been breaking and chipping a lot lately despite regular manicures.

I bought this product on my recent US trip but Sally Hansen products are available in India as well.

This is what the company claims

  • All-in-one patented strengthening base and top coat works double time...for double protection.
  • As a base coat, Double Duty moisturizes and hydrates nails with Panthenol.
  • As a top coat, Double Duty protects with Nylon.
  • Nails are shielded with a hard, shiny, chip-resistant finish.
  • Salon Tested - Dermatologist Tested.
Special Ingredients:
Panthenol and Nylon protect for perfect manicures and stronger,
more beautiful nails.
My Take:
I have been using this since the past 1.5 months and yes the product really works 
My nails have stopped chipping and breaking.
If used as a top coat it does protect your nail paint and the nail paint doesn't chip, also the nails don't become yellow even if you have applied a dark nail paint.
You can wear it alone without wearing any color on top of it and the nails look good.
It stays on till the time you actually remove it with a nail paint remover.
I am very happy with this and will definitely buy it again, a great product for people like me who can't be bothered to change nail paint every 3 days :) 
I am totally in awe of people who color coordinate their nail paints with their outfits, wow.
So, I would definitely buy it again and would recommend it to others also who have the same problem with their nails as I had.

  1. You have convinced me. Although my nails do not chip as much as they break while doing work/errands!!!
