You guys all know my dilemma with soft, peeling nails. I even went a few months leaving all the blogging to Lissi because I was trying to grow them out after some extreme breakage and peeling. Fast forward....and I gotta tell ya after using Nailtiques Formula 2, I haven't had anymore peeling. I spent a good month and a half applying a coat a day for five days, removing; and then following that plan again consistently. NO PEELS! Now I use it as a base coat, apply my color, top it with SV and then spend the new few days topping it all with Nailtiques until I change my polish again. I plan on never being without this stuff again. I might have to purchase stock in the company.
I don't know if this is helpful or relevant to some of you, but I just had to share the wealth of information and my happiness with our nail blogging community! I'm sure some of you followers and definitely some fellow bloggers out there are blessed with truly gorgeous nails. I have to try a little harder at it. Anyway, here is some information about Nailtiques and here is where you can find them online. They're available in the U.S., Canada and they ship internationally as well. *love*
Nailtiques come in several formulas. Number 1 is for nails that are naturally healthy. That formula helps maintain the nail's flexibility. Formula 2Plus are for nails that still didn't improve after using Formula 2 for 6 weeks, at minimum. In other words excessive problem nails. Formula 3 is for nails that are naturally hard and dry nails. They also have a kit especially designed for after the removal of artificial nails.
I used Formula 2 and Nailtiques states the following:
Formula 2 - Treatment for Soft, Peeling, Bitten, Weak or Thin Nails. Nailtiques Nail Protein formulas were created to treat different nail conditions. The salon-tested formulations offer special combination of ingredients, including hydrolyzed keratin and protein in combination with gelatin and calcium to build a healthy nail foundation. The protein formulas bond the nail layers together building a strong nail foundation resistant to peeling, chipping and splitting.
Nails that are soft, peeling, split or just will not grow will see marked improvement when treated with Formula 2. This formula consists of a unique blend of protein and conditioners. The protein immediately acts to help bond nails that are splitting or peeling. Formula 2 also helps to strengthen the nail resulting in long, strong and healthy nails.
Apply daily. As nails improve, decrease application. Formula 2 may be worn alone or with color polish.
