      Comments about Nailtiques Formula 2:

      After reading about how bad Nailtiques smelled, I was concerned about using it. BUT, it doesn't smell any worse than any other nail polish and not as strong as some of the other polishes I've used. I began using this product because my normally thin nails began splitting at the tips. I filed them down as low as I could and they still were splitting. I tried just using a nail and hand cream to no avail. AFter using this product for a month and a half, my nails are not splitting any more. I did also use a nail cream and hand cream morning and night, but I believe this product helped nurture the new growth of nails.

      Comments about Nailtiques Formula 2:

      My nails are soft, peel and split. Every time I try to grow them out, (or even if I don't try) they just rip. I've been using formula 2 for 2 weeks now, as instructed. The good: my nails are not splitting and peeling. They are still soft though, but I'm hopeful that with continued use they will grow stronger. The bad: this has a very strong odor. The ugly: my cuticles are now dry and I've developed 2 painful hangnails. This is despite 2x daily use of a high quality cuticle oil and a quality hand cream. This week, I've been applying the coats to the nail tips and not painting all the way down to the base of the nail. It seems to be helping. I think this might work for me, provided the hangnails go away. Make sure you don't paint it on too thick either, or it will peel.

        Comments about Nailtiques Formula 2:

        A manicurist recommended this product to me after I complained it seemed my nails would begin breaking just as soon as I got them to a length worth polishing. I almost decided to not buy a bottle because of the price but changed my mind. I am very, very glad I did. Believe every positive review you read here. Overnight results seem a bit far fetched; however, I noticed a difference in my nails within a few days. Now, three weeks later, the difference is remarkable. My nails are so strong and I love the sheen of this product. I have several comments to add to some of the previous responses. Yes, it is expensive, but you need to just apply a very thin coat. A person commented on having to remove the polish after several coats and how could having to start all over be worth it. I imagine the first application to our nails is the most beneficial - the nail has more direct absorption of that coat. I don't feel I am spending more money on this product if I have to remove layers because they become too thick. I'm going to be adding a new one either way. You might, however, be spending more money on polish remover.

              Heard great things about this & a few complaints. Unfortunately, I fall into the few complaints group. This product dried out my nails to the point that they began to separate from their nail beds.

                Comments about Nailtiques Formula 2:

                I have used another product for YEARS and my nails were okay, but over time just kept getting worse. I had artificial nails previously for years and thought my nails were permanently damaged. A nail technician recommended Nailtiques, I bought a bottle the next day along with the Oil Therapy and my nails were improved IMMEDIATELY. I have been using this product for two weeks now and my nails are healed! No longer flaking, peeling or weak. I will continue to use under/over nail color as this product also gives an amazing shine to nails. Thank you Nailtiques!

                  Comments about Nailtiques Formula 2:

                  After nearly of 14 years of going back and forth on between getting acrylics, gel nails, no-chip gel manicures and trying to recover from all the damage that was done a few friends recommended Nailtiques to me. Not only have my natural nails grown back, they are stronger then before I started doing the "fake" nails! My only complaint is that when you get towards the bottom of the bottle, it does get a little thick and harder to apply. I am on my second bottle and will be purchasing another very soon!

                    Comments about Nailtiques Formula 2:

                    I am 27 years old and bit my nails as a child, so they have always been very weak, thin, and peeled/broke constantly. As a result, I started getting acrylic nail at about the age of 15 or 16. I recently had an old co-worker tell me about this product because I wanted to try going natural with my nails. She told me just to get the formula 2, not the 2 plus, 3, etc. just formula 2. I have been using it for about 2-3 months now. I started with jus the small bottle. I put it on every day, by itself for the first week, per the instructions, then over my color for the first month or so. It can also be used as a base coat if you want, but its up to you. After the second month or so I just started using it once a week when I did my manicure. Even after the first week, I noticed a difference in my nails, they were smoother and a little stronger. Now they grow out well past my finger tips which I never have been able to do naturally my whole life! My old nail tech told me some people are just born with bad nails, but now I know you don't have to keep them. Keep in mind, I used this right after having acrylics taken off, and we all know how damaged our nails are after that! This is a wonderfull product and I tell everyone that complements my nails, or tells me they wish they could grow theirs about this product. It really is a must have and I will definitely be going back to purchase the large size!!

                    When I first started using this protein I applied one coat every other day. After the first week there was a significant improvement in my nails. After week 2 I applied one coat once a week. I also use this has a base coat before painting my nails. I have not had an broken or torn nails since using this product. I've never had anything else work before, I even got my mother to start using it.
