Nail Tek
mfg by Prima Technologies
501 Route 111
Smithtown NJ 11788-4359

Google or Froogle search for the product....no affiliation, btw.

Bought a bottle about 2 yrs ago on the advice from a woman on a mailing list. I've tried 'em all--this really worked for me. My nails used to split into layers, horizonally and vertically :( Plus chip at the ends . My fingernails are natually thin and soft.

Now, for the 1st time in my life, I have good looking nails (even without wearing the Nail TeK). I am not 'easy' on my hands, never wear gloves, unless it is very cold.

HTH

After a couple of months of the two-pronged attack you should see results.

Be very careful with any product you put on your nails as it can harden the outside while it's applied but cause weaknesses that don't show up until after it's off.



I agree with this. Be careful using polish to strengthen nails; while the polish strengthens, the remover will weaken nails.

I agree with MrsGloftoe, but I'd take it a step further and look at her diet. You really are what you eat. Any polish she puts on will only be a temporary cover for the damage. Correcting her nutrition will help even with the problems that she can't see.

I know lots of girls recommend some kind of nail strengthener, but keep in mind it cuts of the air supply to the nails. My nails get really strong if I take a combo of the following:

Chromium Picolinate
Gelatin

BTW- the chromium has a tendency to make people break out if consumed in large quantities so keep it to a min - more isn't always better.

Chromium picolinate is suggested to help control blood sugar (evens out the highs and lows). Didn't know it would help nails :) Interesting!

BTW...I don't use nail polish remover, just let the Nail Tek wear off.

I don't know if it has been debunked or found to be problematic, but for a while around here women were using the same stuff that ranchers use for horse's hooves. Some of the beauty supply shops actually carried it.

I know what it is for, I just observed that when taking Chromium my nails and hair grows like crazy.
