Crystal File 070: Nailtek Intensive Therapy II

As winter has lingered here, my nails have begun to show the effects in the form of peeling on a few of my nails. As a result of this I decided to finally give Nailtek Intensive Therapy II (therapy for soft, peeling nails) a try. I have to say, this turned out to be a huge mistake on my part. Unfortunately, I have come to suspect that the formaldehyde component in Nailtek actually intensified the peeling problem for me. Over the course of ten days, the peeling areas became much worse than I have ever experienced. Obviously I abruptly discontinued use of this product, as I don't think my nails could have tolerated even one day more!

I have heard many wonderful things said about Nailtek products, so I was quite disappointed. This is truly a product where individual results may vary. Keep in mind, I'm only posting this as a warning. I think any product can be worth trying, just be aware that some products can be counter-effective (which is a term I just made up, but hopefully you get the idea) depending on the individual.

In addition to this note on Nailtek, I do have to apologize to my readers for not having posted much recently. Both my Grandmother and my husband's Grandfather passed away recently, so we've been busy with funeral travel and such. Hopefully things will settle down now. I should have quite a few exciting new summer colors coming my way, so please keep checking in!

Sorry about your losses.

I've used Nailtek II Foundation since November now and my nails have become very strong - but I've still got problems with peeling. And it's not just little peels, it is huge chunks that come off. I have now decided to try another product, but not quite sure what. Will trail the NB for some suggestions :-)

Thank you Lucy, i appreciate it :)

And Ane, i've had very good luck with Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator, European Secrets Rock Hard, and Sally Hansen Nail Quencher base coat. All of these products seem to strengthen and hydrate my nails, which helps prevent peeling!

Sorry to hear about your grandparents. Love your work!

I am very sorry to hear about your grandparents. My grandpa passed away a year ago and it was very hard. So I know what you're going through.

I have the same opinion as you about Nailtek II. I got this stuff and used it once but the smell of it was so terrible it just about knocked me out. I don't mind the smell of most polishes but this stuff is just nasty. Due to the smell I can't even use it. Looked at the ingredient list and see there's pure formaldehyde in it (not resin) and toluene so I can see why it must smell so terrible.

Currently waiting on a NailAid order to try these products instead.

At the beginning of his venture, although he himself was still very poor and struggling daily to earn a living, Dat spent his monthly allowance on buying ink and brushes for his students. His small house was rearranged to make it a classroom and the first students were children from his clan. The old man did all this work with great enthusiasm and accepted no fee from his students.

The show's premise originated with Paul Attanasio, while David Shore, who is credited as creator, was primarily responsible for the conception of the title character. It is largely filmed in Century City. House often clashes with his fellow physicians, including his own diagnostic team, because many of his hypotheses about patients' illnesses are based on subtle or controversial insights
