High Maintenance Peptide Infused Instant Nail Thickener Top Coat

Item #: 2269349 Size: 0.4 oz

Instantly thicken thin, brittle nails up to 50%with peptide-infused top coat.

High on shine and long on durability, Dermelect High Maintenance Peptide Infused Instant Nail Thickener Top Coat utilizes protein- peptide technology to instantly thicken your nails up to 50% with a single coat. Add layers of protection to natural nails or top your polish with a long-lasting high shine and protective reinforcement. With the unique strengthening property of the protein peptide you will directly apply a form of keratin similar to that which is found naturally in our nails resulting in nails that are more resistant to splitting, breaking and chipping. Fast drying and super glossy, this innovative, thickening treatment contains a UV absorber to protect your polish from yellowing while preventing both light and dark colors from quickly fading. Hands down the most innovative top coat you will ever need.

Key Ingredients:

  • Keratin Protein Peptide: Strengthening


Benefits:

  • Instantly thickens nails up to 50% with a single coat
  • High shine
  • UV absorber to prevent color fading and yellowing

 

The Science Behind The Innovation:

New Zealand wool protein biotechnology is the breakthrough ingredient in a new generation of nail and hand care products launched by Dermelect Cosmeceuticals. Keratin, the main protein in fingernails and skin, diminishes as we age and expose our nails to everyday wear and tear. The peptide ingredient is extracted from wool in a gentle yet powerful process keeping the protein intact maintaining its potency without damaging the amino acids that make it up. The integrity of the extracted peptide (keratin protein) is in a near-perfect state yielding unprecedented age-defying, strengthening and softening properties for the nails and hands.

Additonal Benefits:

  • DBP, Formaldehyde & Toluene Free
  • Cruelty Free - No Animal Testing, Ever
  • Hydroquinone Free
  • Paraben Free

Apply 1-2 coats on bare or manicured nails. Reapply extra coats as needed.

Precautions: Keep away from heat or flame. For external use only. Keep out of reach of children.

      Comments about Dermelect High Maintenance Peptide Infused Instant Nail Thickener Top Coat:

      I have been consistently using this top coat for months and love it! Not only does it help my manicure last longer, but it has also prevented that dreaded fade from the sun. Definitely a summer beauty product favorite for that reason. Highly recommended especially to those who feel like their manicure never lasts as long as it should.

      I bring it with me to the nail salon and ask them to use it instead of Essie or OPI because it makes my mani last THAT much longer. Also, very shiny!

          I have always envied those who were blessed with beautiful, long, and more importantly, strong nails.

When I showed her the results, she bought a bottle for herself as well! Thank you Ulta!

                High Maintenance is the best! I actually bring it to the manicurist because it's so much better than their top coats. Long lasting and I love that it had a UV absorber.

                    This is the best product I have ever used to grow nails that do not peel or split. The polish goes on smooth, has a nice shine, and has fortified my weak, thin nails. It takes about a month to see the difference. Be faithful with your applications and you will see beautiful results!
