Nailtiques vs. OPI Nail Envy

Has anyone used both?  How do they compare?

I've always sworn by Nailtiques - it has really improved the strength of my nails and I love it.  But I see so many recs for Nail Envy on here, I'm wondering if its even better?  Am I missing out?


Re: Nailtiques vs. OPI Nail Envy

  • I think it's personal preference. I like Nailtiques better. My sister only uses Envy.
  • I've never used Nailtiques, but wasn't overly impressed with Nail Envy.
  • Neither- Nail Tek II is way better than both of them
  • I've used both, but now only use Nail Envy. I thought Nailtiques worked well, but I had problems with the polish flaking off after a couple of days. I don't have that problem with Nail Envy and it strengthens my nails and they look great.

  • Actually, i have a problem with the Nailtiques itself flaking off if I put on more than one coat...
  • The main ingredients are almost the exact same. I can't imagine that they can be that much different.
