Hey guys, so I’ve been searching for a really good “Nail food” product for a while now and I’ve recently got my hands on Quo by ORLY’s Nail Nourishment from my local drug store.
Background: I’ve been using it for about a month now, and I haven’t actually noticed much/if any improvement in my nail health. The product claims “Growth support for damaged nails. Helps strengthen splitting and peeling nails. Helps stimulate faster nail growth. Nails grow longer and stronger.” I haven’t really noticed any of those things as of yet but I’m not giving up lol!
Application: Ok, so how it works is 1-2 coats of the polish are to be applied daily for a week and then at the end of that week the polish is removed. The process is repeated for week 2 with a week break in between the next application process. I didn’t find these directions/this process to be the most practical just because it requires users to do an extra task each day that they may not have time for. I think it would be much better if the product only required application to be once a week or so. Even that little adjustment would make this product more appealing to me. One thing I noticed upon application is that it has sort of a shimmer in the polish which is actually quite nice. Adds a bit of glamour in a way lol. This is one key things that separates this product from most other “nail food/nail protection” products as those usually leave a top coat shine finish or disappear completely after/during application.
Overall: I’m generally a huge fan of ORLY polishes but this one did not make the cut for me. I didn’t find this product to be that effective as a nail “grower/lengthening” or strengthener, that being said I love love love it as a base coat.
