good considering the price of a manicure these days!

I like French manicures but don’t want to spend $20+ every few weeks on one. So why not just spend $5 and get like 30 applications? My only problem with it is even though I put the clear coat over the white part, the white still chips in a few days which I have to keep touching up to keep it looking good. I guess you get what you pay for.

A Excellent Way to Achieve a Salon Looking French

I have NEVER been able to do french manicure that was halfway decent- until now. This kit was easy to use and the results were amazing. Everyone complimented me on my manicure and asked me where I had gotten my nails done. The results were pretty amazing.

Better than the salon!

This will keep your nails gorgeous and your purse filled. The polish will probably lasts years. And since french manicures costs from $20-$40 dollars its a excellent investment! Buy it!

OK Not great

To use the nail product you must remove your fingernail polish. That is difficult for me, because I like to wear polish. Not sure it has done any good for me. The cuticle remover is not much good.

Works pretty good.

My nails have been a mess for a long time. I have no idea why. They chip, split, peel.I’ve used everything on them but nothing has helped. This stuff helps. You reallyhave to use it every single day without fail. It takes a couple of weeks for the resultsto show up. Then, if you stop for a while, the nails go right back to being a mess.It’s the only product I’ve found that works at all. If you’re willing to use it faithfully,it will probably work for you.

GOOD BUT NOT GREAT

Formula 2 is what was suggested to me by a manicurist – hopefully to give some strength to my easy to break, thin nails. That it did. I carefully followed the instructions to first use it every night than reduce to every other night, then remove, and start again if necessary.So, I’m happy with the results but not with the use. First this product has a tendency to peel, which caused me to “touch up” even though the directions advised not use more than once a day. It is also very difficult to remove. The best success for me was to thoroughly dampen a cotton ball and then hold it on a nail for at least 45 seconds to soften the protein.Also, while the bottle is attractive the lid is a good one inch in diameter, which may be the reason why it detached itself from the brush portion after the second use. Ever try applying a nail polish or treatment by holding just the top part of the brush?So, i give this product an A- for results but a C- for attendant difficulties.

EXCELLENT PRODUCT

I’ve been using ‘nailtiques’ since before Xmas of 2010. I have always had long, strong, well manicured fingernails – I give myself a manicure at least one a week on an average but within the past two years I’ve noticed the my middle fingernail, left hand has this slightly noticable crack and all 10 nails without polish look cracked and definitely not smooth like they use to be. I always use oils before I go to bed but nothing has helped until I discovered nailtiques completely by accident. I purchased Formula 2 PLUS first, then Formula 2 large size – it works girls.I cut my nails short and started my first application of Formula 2 Plus, using it only 9/10 days and saw a great improvement. I stopped using nail polish for about 2 month, using only the Formula 2 for the next 5 months – my nails are back to the way they use to be. I still use the Formula 2 PLUS about once a month – I wouldn’t be without this stuff. It has a nice sheen so it looks good on the nails without polish. I takes approximately 3 months for my nails to be long again and believe me I do a lot of typing which is deadly for the nail tips. Don’t hesitate to purchase this great ‘bring back my nails’ – product.

Try it!! Be Patient, It will work just give it time 🙂

I started using this product 2.5 months ago after removing artificial nails. My nails were always thin, bendy, and peeling before acryclic (this is why I’ve used artificial nails on and off for special occasions) I was determined to have pretty nails for my wedding that is coming up in 3 days and was sick of the thick artificial look… for the first time EVER my nails are long and strong, and no more peeling. My biggest problem prior to trying nailtiques was my nails peeling off from the sides, right when they would grow a little bit I would get a split in the side and it would just peel the whole nail end right off. You have to be VERY diligent about applying every day, this was hard for me because I was still experiencing peeling at the ridges from the artifical nails so it might seem like it’s not working but you have to be patient. As soon as the damaged nail grew out is when I could really tell the difference and I have had to even file them down.A .25 oz bottle has lasted me about 6 weeks (I’m still only on my second bottle after 2.5 months), although it would probably have lasted longer but once I got to the last bit in the bottle it got pretty thick and I got a new bottle. I believe they also sell a nailtique protein thinner (nail polish thinner won’t work!) When the protien gets thick it peels off easier, normally I could go over a week without having to remove and start again, when it was thicker it would start peeling off after 3 or 4 days.

It’s just cheap clear nailpolish! (:(

#1. It has FARMALDEHUYDE ! Per WebMD: “Elle, a celebrity manicurist who writes a blog for Barielle Cosmetics, suggests her clients use polish that is free of formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate.”#2. How on earth does putting this on top of the nailpolish penetrate the nailpolish to strengthen the nail under it?! It doesn’t! That just goes to prove that it’s the many layers that keep the nails from breaking and not that it’s actually doing something to nourish the nails so that NAILS themselves become stronger.I was shocked when i put it on to see that it’s basically just clear nail polish and not something that penetrates the nail it’s self to strengthen it! It’s just a cheap nailpolish which starts chipping off within 1 day (even when put on clean dry nails as the directions say!).

depends on metabolism, medications peels off too fast

I was very excited about adding Duri Rejuvacote Nail Growth System to my new regimen. Perhaps it depends on one’s metabolism, or even (allergy) medications, but I find it peels off very, very quickly, same day it’s applied. I try to wear gloves when using cleansers and cleaning. My nails are growing and growing very fast, thanks to a nail strengthener oil and nail growth oil on […]. I’ve seen tremendous growth! Nails that had never grown without artificial wraps or such are now growing long and strong. When a nail breaks, it grows back very quickly. So, I incorporated the Rejuvacote to help, but it peels off around the edges too quickly, even without pre-applying oils. I will use the remainder of the bottle, but would not buy again. For me, Sally Hansen works better. It helps the polish last longer, does not peel with mere handwashing and looks nice.

It works!

I’ve always struggled with thin brittle nails that often peeled. I’ve never been able to grow long nails b/c as soon as they grew any length they would peel so bad. So I bought this and I’ve been using it for two months now and my nails feel so much thicker and they haven’t peeled once. This product takes time to work but if you stick with it you will see great results. I don’t believe it makes your nails grow any faster though but if you’re looking for a great nail hardener this is it.

Directions and descriptions

The directions on the bottle and the product descriptions, both on this page and on the packaging are confusing. The directions say: “Apply one coat to clean, dry, bare nails. Repeat application every other day”. Then the product description says: “Sally Hansen continuous treatment hardener uses vita-release technology in a time-release formula that hardens soft, thin nails up to 10 days. Exclusive coral calcium formula bonds nail layers together to harden and thicken for up to 10 continuous days to stop severe, problem nails from tearing and peeling”.The description leads me to believe I only have to apply it every 10 days?I have been using it every 2 or 3 days. When it is on every other day it does really help the nails that have been splitting. The only drawback is that if I apply polish on top of this, which is not addressed in any of the directions; the nail surface looks uneven.At least this does do what it says…it hardens the nails enough that they do not split and are able to grow out without breaking.

Makes your nails worse!

My nails are not very strong so I bought this product to try. After using it for about 3 weeks I discovered that my nails were cracking really badly. I knew it was from the product. I stopped using it and even a month later my nails are still cracking and splitting. Do not use this product.

Works good for cracking nails

I am a CNA (certified nursing aide) so I always have to wash my hands and where gloves about 30 times a day. This does sooo much damage to my nails and they are so brittle that I can’t even think about wanting medium length nails again.But after this product, my nails have definitely improved and can be grown out longer than before because they stay crack-free and I don’t have to clip them.PS: I also take Biotin (a supplement) which helps nail growth (for me it doesn’t help brittleness, only length) so when I use this product and take Biotin my nails look great.

It takes my nail polish off!

I have not used top coat in awhile, but I know one thing for sure… it’s not supposed to take the nail polish off. Maybe it was because the nail polish was not dry but I waited 10 minutes to put the top coat on then I brushed my nail with it ( I had on nail tape also) and the nail polish went over the nail tape! My nails were dirty and ugly and eventually I had to remove it all. If you don’t do designs on your nails this is perfect for you.

Not what i hoped…

Well, my hair did not grow, I’ll say that from the very start.I got these knowing that they’re not supposed to work the same for everyoneand that maybe my results would not be as advertised, but again, my hairdid not grow AT ALL, which is eve funny because my hair normally growssomewhat fast.The reason I give this a 3, is because after all they are still vitaminsand minerals that you body needs, and because, despite the fact that ishorrible having to be taking so many pills a day it helps with your waterdrinking which is also good for you.My hair however does feels stronger and shinier and is not falling anymore,it was falling a lot and that was another thing i hoped the pills would solveand they did solve that, also my nails grew a lot and are very strong.So, if you decide to try this, do it with the understanding that i will notwork the same on everyone and that it may not do the wonders they say but itwill do some good on regards to the strength of your hair and scalp.I may even get this again, to make sure my hair stops falling…

No Change, and such a hassle to take!!

This product did nothing for my hair growth and i took the pills as recommended. Let me tell you it is so annoying to take 8 pills a day! I have a life! I wouldn’t recommend, I wasn’t hoping for a miracle given the ingredients are vitamins and amino acids and I already was taking vitamins and eating extremely well. However, I was hoping to at least notice something. I have used for about 6 months since I had bought a package but will not repurchase.

Works!

Let me begin by saying I have run the gamut of thumb-sucking and nail biting since I was a very young child. For the longest, about ten years, my only recourse was to get my nails done with acrylic tips to keep my nails from being bitten and them growing. Long story short, I grew tired of throwing away good money every month on the upkeep. So, I needed something that was going to keep my from biting. Well, this product is it! It tastes something terrible and be warned when eating finger foods. It is like Mavala has something in it soak through your fingertips or something! I got around it eating with a fork. It has been three weeks with no biting and I have visible growth. I have tried, yes, but upon my fingers getting to my lips–UUUGGGHHH!!!! The taste is gross! No biting. lol

Oh gosh, it’s nasty! Nasty! Which is good!!!

My son is a finger sucker. I wouldn’t care so much if he’d keep it in the privacy of home… but he’s 6 now, he does it in school, the other kids tease him – so it’s time to stop.We tried Thum. Thum doesn’t last long at all – and it doesn’t even taste that bad. Spicy, but with all the Thai food I ate when I was pregnant with my him, really, spicy probably doesn’t phase him.Then someone on a parenting board I read mentioned this and we bought some. Good God. This stuff is FOUL.We were sitting downstairs playing video games and my son stuck his fingers in his mouth, then ran upstairs to get a drink of juice to get rid of the taste.I tried some on my own thumb, to see how bad it is. It’s bad. And after washing dishes twice and washing my hands I don’t know how many times, yuck, still bad! And it’s BAD, bitter, nasty, not just spicy.I’ve got high hopes for this. We just started using it today but if any sort of flavored deterrant is going to do it, this stuff will.I’m almost afraid it’s TOO nasty… You don’t realize how much you inadvertantly stick your fingers in your mouth till there’s something like this on them. I did it a couple times during dinner. Yuck! It’s really, really nasty!!!Crossing my fingers – so far I’m impressed.1/25/10 – updating to say he totally kicked his habit in a very short time. I would reccomend this to anyone with a finger/thumb sucking/buting habit. Money very well spent!!!
