Until the day I wondered into John Lewis, innocently I might add, and spotted this. A set where you were effectively buying the Nail Envy and receiving the RapiDry Top Coat for free! I like to look at it more as I bought each bottle for £9 each - this makes me feel better about it somehow. But seeing as the RapiDry retails for about £13 anyway it really was an offer too good to miss out on - and let's face it.. waiting for nail varnish to dry really is the most annoying and slowest 10 minutes of life wasted! Unfortunately, I can't seem to see this on their website but it's worth checking in store.
O.P.I. Nail Envy is a nail strengthener which claims to 'transform and protect even the most damaged nails'. It supposedly stops nails splitting and peeling and also increases growth rate. Now I don't feel like I can comment on the growth rate due to my already mentioned nasty habit (that I will stop one day!!) but I have definitely noticed an improvement in the 'quality' of my nails. They do not split at all - which does actually decrease the urge I have to bite them as they don't develop horrible flakey bits and I'm not as afraid of them snapping. I use it alone when I'm not allowed painted nails for work or as a base coat. It's also really quick to dry which means I am much more likely to use it often - I actually usually apply in when I'm on my weekly train journey from Liverpool to Wales.
I am also mega impressed with the RapiDry Top Coat. I'm sure I'm not alone in my loathing of those all important 10/15 minutes after applying nail varnish where you are rendered incapable of completing even the simplest task of changing the channel with the remote. If you actually are able to get to the properly dry stage without having smudged your little finger on the side of the sofa or your thumb on your mobile phone then seriously.. Wow. Luckily, this little bottle of glory has put an end to all that! You literally just paint over a thin layer of this stuff over the colour on your nails wait a couple of minutes at the most and you're free to be a normal person again. ALL HAIL RAPIDRY!!!
