  • 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

  • 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.

    Directions

    Application:

    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.

    Removal:

    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.

  • Nailtiques Formula 2 5 Star Rating
    Love this product. I had given up and heard great things about Nailtiques usually when watching a you tube video and the host would mention that they were going to try Nailtiques next because they kept hearing great things about it! (Hope you followed that). Anyway, after 8 weeks of following instructions for Nailtiques Formula 2, I have Long, white tipped, hard nails!!. They started out discolored (my nails always looked dirty and dingy) curled under, soft, short and really unattractive. I am so thrilled! I also wear cotton gloves at night and apply Nailtiques oil therapy and wake up to more beautiful nails the following day. Try it. It works!

  • Unbelieveable! 5 Star Rating
    All my life, I've had flimsy nail that broke and peeled. I have been using this product for over two years now. In all that time, no more need fro acrylics! If you like long, strong nails (that are NOT acrylic), this is the product for you. I get compliments on my nails ALL the time now.

  • Amazing 5 Star Rating
    I've been using Nailtiques formula 2 since 1999. It's the absolute best product for nails I've ever tried. It makes them look and feel ten times better. I often get compliments on my nails and it makes my already naturally white tips look like I got a french manicure without wasting time at some salon. Best 2 minute solution around.

  • Nailtiques 2 .. Best Thing Sincetim Gunn Who Is Also Fabulous! 5 Star Rating
    This product is so amazing .. been using it for years ... people often ask me if my nails are real ... and I'm proud to say .. they are b/c of Nailtiques 2 that I recommend to everyone! My manicurist recommended it many years ago. I go every other week for a mani, once a month for a pedi and use it exclusively on the odd weeks where I remove my polish from the mani. After my pedi, I put a coat on top .. and to refresh my mani, I apply it again and it looks like I just got my pedi. Great stuff!

    It works very well. Give it 6-8 weeks to get noticeable results. Apply it as directed (a layer a day and remove all each week).
    I noticed my nails got a lot stronger and thicker. I'll switch to formula 1 now since i recently broke one and it hurt like a mother (breaking thick nails hurt a lot more than breaking thin nails) so maybe more flexible nails would help.

  • Worth Every Penny 5 Star Rating
    Sure Nailtiques costs more than drugstore stuff or even some other products you can get at the beauty supply store. But Nailtiques Formula 2 really works and it works really great! It's got protein and polymers that makes it strong. And it drys really fast. As soon as I'm done painting one hand, the other is already dry.

    To strengthen and fortify nails, put on two to three coats. It goes on clear. I don't have weak or thin nails but because I like to work in my garden, cook, bake, take care of my many pets, my hands are exposed to water a lot. And it makes my nails peel. For this purpose, I use Nailtiques to seal my nails on a regular basis.

    As a base coat for manicures, put on one coat, let it dry and apply one to two coats of color. I think Nailtiques bonds to clean nails better than color and using it as a base coat keeps polish on longer. Also, I like that it prevents my nails from yellowing better than anything else I've tried. Even with the deepest burgundy colors, the yellowing of my nails is minimal if any. To finish your mani, seal the whole thing with a hard durable topcoat.

    NOTE: If you really want your color to really last the test of time, put one more thin coat of Formula 2 on top of the color after the color dries. Give it a minute to dry and follow with a super hard top coat. Make sure you let every layer dry adequately before applying the next layer so that you don't get those annoying bubbles!
