Essie Rock Solid Review

Awhile back I was really unhappy with my nails. I was getting a lot of breakage and tears in my nails. I would then be left with uneven finger nails and that's not pretty.

I went to the drugstore to find something to help make my nails stronger and picked up Rock Solid from Essie.

I have been using this for a month, maybe a little longer and I am really impressed.

Rock Solid claims to give you 30% stronger nails in 5 days and I have to say I did see results in about that length of time.

Since I have been using this I have had no breakage or tears in my nails at all. I can even feel them stronger. Before this my nails felt very thin and brittle, but this is working wonders!

The formula itself isn't one of those thick base coats, it is a thin clear base coat. You use it as you would any other base coat and apply it before your nail polish.

It is also DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free.

You can find this online for $8 on various websites from to

Overall I highly recommend it if you are looking for a nail strengthener.

Have any of you used Essie Rock Solid? What did you think of it?

If your nails are tearing (as mine are too) I would suggest taking a multi-vitamin ... my GP noted it's most likely a deficiency.

I just bought the Essie Rock Solid nail strengthener, and I'm wondering how often I should be applying a fresh coat. Thanks! (:

I apply it before every manicure, so that usually comes to about once a week for me and I've had great results! Hope that helps. :)
