Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Instant Nail Hardener Review

Hi All!

Of late my nails have been in a really bad state. They are soft, splitting and it was really difficult to grow them. So I decided to get a nail hardener for myself. Let’s see how this nail hardener fared.

Price & Quantity: 

Rs. 625 for 13.3 ml


My Take:

This nail hardener really prevents nails from breaking, splitting and cracking. As soon as I applied this to my nails, it dried quickly. I also felt my nails were instantly harder. It is best to apply two coats. It can also be used as a base coat. I always use it as a base coat to whatever nail color I’m using. By doing this the nail color does not chip off easily and also made my nail color last longer. I remember once my nail paint was intact for fifteen days without any chipping. Although it did make my nails harder, it failed to prevent my nails from peeling. I was disappointed with this aspect. I can ignore this part as only one nail peels all the time and not all of them.

Packaging: The nail hardener comes in a grey colored bottle which has a silver colored cap. The cap has a brush applicator which  I feel is of good quality. I have no issues with the applicator. It ensures smooth application of the hardener. It’s tightly fixed to the cap so there is no chance of the applicator coming off the cap.

Color & Fragrance: The nail hardener is transparent in color. But I don’t like the grey color of the bottle as it is not attractive at all. Also, the smell of the hardener is way too strong. I just cant bear it. But it goes away soon so I wouldn’t make an issue about it.


  • Dries Quickly
  • Hardens soft nails
  • Can be used as a base coat
  • Helps in growing long nails.
  • Easily available on major online shopping sites.



  • Did not prevent my nails from peeling.
  • The price is a bit on the higher side.


Rating: 2.5/5


Do I recommend?:

I would recommend this nail hardener for people with soft nails. It’s not a miracle cure of course, but the best by far. This would be ideal for those who find it difficult to grow their nails long.

Would I repurchase?:

I don’t think so as it failed to prevent my nails from peeling!
