  • Overview
  • Featured in the "Best Beauty Buys" in the April 2006 InStyle! This formula treats nails that are naturally soft, peeling, split or just won't grow.

    SKU: F8536

  • Ingredients
  • Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Tosylamide Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, Isopropyl Alcohol, Dibutyl Phthalate, Acrylic Resin, Formalin, Hydrolyzed Protein, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Calcium, Gelatin.


  • Features
    • Nailtiques Protein Formulas were created for different nail conditions.
    • The salon tested formulations offering special combinations of ingredients, including hydrolyzed keratin and protein in combination with gelatin and calcium.
    • The protein immediately acts to help bond nails that are splitting or peeling. It also assists in strengthening the nail to grow long, strong and healthy.



    1. Turn bottle upside down and roll between the palms of your hands to blend ingredients. This will prevent air bubbles which could prevent nail protein from adhering properly to the nail.
    2. Apply one thin coat of nail protein. For best results, wash nails with soap and water to assure the nail is free from any substances (oil, creme, etc.) which may prevent your nail protein from adhering properly.
    3. Allow hands to lay flat for 30 seconds to allow the protein to set and prevent it from rolling onto the cuticle.
    4. Per your prescribed instructions, reapply over existing coats of protein and/or color polish.


    1. Remove nail protein with Nailtiques Non-Acetone Remover.
    2. Wash nails thoroughly with soap and water prior to application.

    For initial treatment, apply one coat without nail polish. Re-apply daily over existing coats of protein until your nails improve and feel stronger. As your nails improve, apply every other day. Remove protein weekly or as necessary (3-4 days) with Nailtiques Non-Acetone Remover. If wearing polish, apply as a base coat every other day. Remove weekly with Nailtiques Non-Acetone Remover.

  • It Really Works! 5 Star Rating
    I have had soft, thin pitiful nails all my life (58 years). I wore artificial nails for over 10 years but that totally destroyed them. I had been using nothing for about 5 years when my daughter recommended this product so I decided I would try it. I have been using it for two and a half months and my nails look better than they have ever looked. It took a while to see progress and polishing every day seemed like a chore but it drys really fast. I now polish at the red lights on my way to work. I am sure I will have long nails by summer. Finally - I am not ashamed to show my hands.

  • This Product Saved My Nails! 5 Star Rating
    4 doctors couldnt tell me why my nails were so soft (my whole life) and would peel off down past the nail bed at the slightest provocation. After a little investigating on the internet and finding this product in a local store, my nails improved in TWO WEEKs. The first week had me skeptical but I found that it seemed to work better if I applied it to freshly washed and dried hands while my nails were still a little porous. I dont think Nailtiques recommends this method but a similar product did so I tried it and yippee, I have nice nails for the first time in my life. For two yeasrs now! Folica sells the Formula 2 in the larger bottle which I can no longer find locally. Yay Folica! AND DO NOT APPLY MORE THAN ONCE IN A DAY! NAILTIQUES ISNT KIDDING ABOUT THAT!

    I have tried so many nail hardeners. This is the only one that has ever worked for me. Now my nails are long for the first time in my life. Im addicted to this product.
