Review of Nailtek Nailtek Intensive Therapy by ella343
I'm on my second bottle; safe to say, I like it.
I have naturally thin, brittle nails, fast growing but prone to peeling, splitting, breaking. With Nail Tek, I no longer have this problem. In fact, I think it leaves a deposit that thickens my nail plate ever so slightly, and certainly the formaldehyde (a known carcinogen, but this reviewer does not care) hardens my weak nails. The trick is to use enough product: I layer the Intensive Therapy, the clear strengthener, the Foundation, a matte-finish, stain-repelling, ridge-filling basecoat, manicure as usual, and a final coat of Intensive Therapy as a glossy, satisfactorily fast-drying topcoat. Only one coat seems to chip off the nail very easily, but sandwiched between three layers of Nail Tek, my manicure generally wears like iron. I also discovered you see the most dramatic results using it consistently, over a period of a month or two, however long it takes for the nail to grow from cuticle to tip. My bottle of Intensive Therapy lasted nearly to the end of the bottle before it became stringy and bubbly, the Foundation does get clumpy as it ages, but they're not so expensive a repurchase hurts.
My only quibble is availability. I order it online, but I rather wish it could be found at any drugstore.
