It's been almost 2 months since I got a mini bottle of the OPI Nail Envy, one of the most raved about things in beauty. I had gotten the mini because from the reviews I had read, the opinions were dramatically divided. It was either OMG! This saved my nails or Useless waste of money, so I figured I'd go with the safe side and just pick up the mini for trying.
Now, I like to think I've had enough time to test it out and come to the conclusion and the conclusion I've come to is the following:
It did not miraculously turn my nails from brittle monsters to shiny,unbreakable unicorns. There was an improvement, yes. You can see that they are less dry and less prone to break but they occasionally still peel and from a product that has a pretty hefty price tag for a base coat, you might expect more.
Now,as far as base coats go, this is probably the best one to have, because it acts as a strengthener too, but if you go through bases like butter, then it might make a hole in your budget to use just for that.
I'd say try out the mini, see if it works or not for you, and decide after that.
I will admit, I'm inclined to buy a new mini once this is done, but I'll probably never go for the full size version because I just don't find that it does enough for my nails to justify its price.
Have you tried the OPI Nail Envy?
