      I have a type of arthritis that makes a mess of my nails, they peel and split always in the same places. There are no polishes alone that would close the splits that never seem to heal. These bandages are the only things I've found that give me relief. Inspite of arthritis, I'm a major sewer and my nails would snag the fabrics. Pulling on threads is also a big issue with split nails. Because of this activity, keeping the bandages on was a bit of a problem (it's also why I didn't fault the product). I've found that if I put a coat of a nail strenghtening product on first, then the bandage and finally another coat of strenghtener the nail remains protected for almost a week. That's a long time for me!

      This product plainly does NOT work! Would not stick to my nails no matter what I did. Would not buy this product again nor would I recommend this to anybody else. I was not happy with this product and was very frustrated when trying to use it.

      A quick fix and snag relief!

        Comments about Calico Invisible Nail Bandages, 30 ea:

        I have a thumb nail that splits and then snags and tears even more. This is a huge help. I use gel polish which is stronger than regular polish, but it still can't always help the split. This definitely offers protection when I lay it right at the very edge of the split over the polish. I haven't tried to 'cure' it with my polish. But, otherwise, I'd have to wear a bandaid! I do have to use a new every other day or more if I swim or have my hands in water cooking, etc. Yes, we should get twice as many ovals for the price! Keeping one in my purse is a must.

        Not meant to be permanent

            Despite what they claim, it's not meant to hold up for more than a day. However it's great to carry with you in case you break your nail and it will hold up until you have the chance to either superglue the tear, get acrylic overlay, or do the teabag mend (look up "teabag broken nail" on Youtube, it's a very inexpensive and very permanent fix).

              I have one nail that is chronically split vertically and I have not been able to grow it out before it splits again. I have had this problem for several frustrating years. This product stabalizes the nail and is allowing it to grow out. I am hopeful that the use of the Invisible Nail Bandage will eliminate the problem once the nail grows out.

                Everyone's looking for the perfect fix for that nail that broke way down by the middle of your nail. Unfortunaltely, this product isn't going to do it. At first I was optomistic, it peeled off the sheet easily and seemed to adhere to my nail well. That night I painted a clear coat over all my nails and the bandaged nail to be sure it wouldn't come off. I showered the next morning and it came off in the shower.

                When I break a nail halfway or just get a crack, I grab a nail bandage, place it on the crack. My nail grows out as if nothing had happened. They stay on well, but usually have to replace every couple of days.

                    Tried this product without using polish over it, and it didn't last the day. I broke a nail last week, though, used clear polish over it, and it's still on.

                      Am trying to give my nails a break after years of acrylics. These are the perfect 'patch' to cover splits and even to help reinforce your nails till they get stronger. Calico should double the amount of ovals in the package.

                          I found these nail bandages some years ago and couldn't find them in stores again. I was really glad to find them online because I need them for split nails on a regular basis.
