OPI Matte Nail Envy is a nail strengthener with wheat protein and calcium that helps nails grow stronger, harder, longer, and prevents cracking and breakage. Nail Envy works best when directly in contact with the nail which makes it an excellent bast coat, however it can also be used as a top coat.
OPI Matte Nail Envy has the same benefits as OPI Original Nail Envy except it will leave your nails with a natural looking matte finish.
Usage Instructions: Apply one coat every other day for one week than remove and start process again applying every other day.
Great product and does what is stated in literature.

OPI Matte Nail Envy doesn't have gloss. Its *matte* finish is no more shiny than regular bare finger nails. This makes OPI Matte Nail Envy excellent for men who have brittle flaky nails due swimming pool chlorine or due to heavy medications. Unfortunately the medications I depend on to keep me up and about with my chronic medical condition make my fingernails incredibly brittle and flaky. I tried what I did when I was on a swim team using nail strengthener. Nail strengthener works, but you have to play around with it while it dries, dabbing it to remove the high gloss. OPI Matt Nail Envy has a matte finish, no gloss, easy to apply. My ladyfriend likes it to preserve her nails when she needs a manicure but doesn't have time for a manicure. It preserves the nails without drawing attention to them. Remember, it is the *Matte* Nail Envy.
I really like the way it looks on my nails and it probably will strengthen healthy nails. My nails started splitting and peeling and I was sad to notice that this product did not have any effect on them . I had to go back to Nailtiques formula 2 and THAT product did the job. I will use OPY Matte Nail Envy in future just won't expect anything special from it. It looks beautiful on the nails!
