    Nails are finally growing. Ended chemo last June.
    This seems to be helping. I am allergic to Formaldehyde so I was happy to see this product.

        Comments about Nail Tek Citra II Formaldehyde Free for Soft, Peeling Nails:

        I returned this product. I wear gel polish almost exclusively, but I usually leave my nails bare every few weeks and treat them with strengtheners etc. so my nails remain healthy. I used the original system and it was just ok, thought I'd try this one out thinking maybe the formaldehyde was the issue. Used it for 2 weeks, followed the directions to the T with no improvement. I went back to Nailtiques formula 2. Nail Tek just doesn't seem to work for me.

          Comments about Nail Tek Citra II Formaldehyde Free for Soft, Peeling Nails:

          I bought it, specifically, because it's formaldehyde free and it was advertized as preventing peeling and strengthening nails. Although I applied it exactly as the directions specified and wore rubber gloves for household chores involving hands in water, by the next morning, the product was peeling off.

              Comments about Nail Tek Citra II Formaldehyde Free for Soft, Peeling Nails:

              i bought the product because I have one nail that constantly peels and looks awful. I have used this daily and the nail that I could not get to grow out is grown and looks almost normal. I used the product daily as recommended. The only complaint would be that the nail is slightly discolored, but the nail is stronger and growing normally.

                      I don't understand how this product has such a high rating! I came on here to leave a review thinking it would already be a 2/5. It doesn't work or last- it chips off in two days. And even after loyally reapplying every few days or so for a month- the overall strength of my nails has not improved over time. They still break just as easily when I first began using the product. Not only that, but when you go to remove it with polish remove it STICKS to your nails so much that you have to peel it off! Then it starts to peel at your nails even at the base! Horrid! AND! It sometimes dries in little bumpies! I applied a coat of this, then another coat of colored polish and it looked like my nail was covered in acne.
