No, it doesn't harden your actual nail, it puts a thick coat on top of your manicure though and it does make it last longer and makes it shinier.

answer 8
I don't think it does much to harden the nails. And, the shine lasts about the same as other top coats. I didn't give it a great review and don't plan to repurchase.
