Item #: 2269349

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.

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

 

(0.4 fl. oz.)

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

            I don't know if I got a bad bottle or what happened. For the price, the polish didn't perform as I think it should. I allowed a half hour in between layers and it still bubbled.

              I want this to work so badly! I like that it is supposed to strengthen your nails and last a long time. It isn't lasting very long; whether it strengthens the nails or not is not known.

                    This did not seem any better than that of other polish lines, and not as good as some of them. I have used Dermelect's base coat and been much happier with that product.

                            I've been doing my own manicures for years now, religiously, and I get comments about how professional they look regularly. That said, I should also mention that I play tennis twice a week and do crossfit three times a week. My nails have been taking a serious beating for about a year now, as NO TOPCOAT can tolerate nails scratched against a tennis court to pick up tennis balls or tossing around barbells. I'm afraid to even write this review because I feel like I might jinx it, but this topcoat has made my nails stronger, allowed them to grow longer due to the strength, and has actually allowed my nail polish to get through four-five days of crossfit with no chips. And it's a moderately quickly drying formula with no formaldehyde??? Unbelievable. I'm not sure about the other reviews saying it lifted the polish. I only use OPI nail polish, and I usually do two coats. I haven't had any problems with the polish lifting. Highly recommended.

                                Ok, let's see..remember, products work differently on everyone. I can say this much, NOT BAD AT ALL! In fact, I'm going to purchase another bottle. My nails were in pretty good condition to start with, maybe only one or two nails where cracking, so, this stuff did help. This product does create some sort of "coat" to one's nails. I used it alone, no nail color. I also used a base with this and it did help. The last couple of months,I have used other brands of NAIL THICKENERS and this product worked better then those other products - that's why I'm going to purchase again.
