Most Helpful Positive Review No more peeling brittle nails!
I have been using this product for two weeks now and my nails are growing out and not splitting or peeling. I have tried so many products over the years and nothing else has worked. So far I am very pleased with this product and will continue to use it. Thank you to the sales clerk in my Ulta store who suggested that I try it!!
Most Helpful Critical Review NOT the best
Bought this because Nailtiques was no longer available in two Ulta stores near me. I've been using Nailtiques for two years since giving up on salon nails - silk wrap, gel, acrylic, etc. For the first time in my life my nails are strong, do not break and I have to file them down because they grow too long. NailTek did not dry to a hard, smooth finish and did not have the "polished" look of Nailtiques. I found Nailtiques on line from Ulta and ordered 3 bottles of its Formula 2! NailTek is much cheaper than Nailtiques, and is definitely an inferior product!

after wearing acrylic nails for years, my nails were weak, fragile and peeling. After one bottle of use this base coat has my nail longer then ever, flexible, durable and gorgeous.
This is a great nail product.

I use this for all my manicures.
Returned Due to Toxic Chemicals In This Product
TS from Waxahachie, TX
I didn't use it. It contains Formaldehyde. This is not something I want to use on my body.
Gmama from MA
Used this product as said but it has done nothing for my nails. Thought this was suppose to be the "it" line for nails, disappointed.
Linda from Wisconsin
In the 2 weeks that I've used this product, seen great improvement in my nails.
Mature Mama from Paducah, KY
I started using this product when I began doing my nails myself during the pandemic. After requiring industrial strength acetone to remove a powder dipped polish, my nails looked horrible and were in poor condition. They were peeling, splitting, and breaking. It's been a few months (one bottle) and my nails are healthy again. I highly recommend this product.

The directions are murky, I felt. Plus they are in MULTIPLE languages!
bubbles in manicures
amw from NC
this stuff is great for nail strength and I used it alone for a few weeks. when I tried to use it as a base and top coat with polishes (no matter what brand), it caused insane bubbles that somehow got worse as I wore the manicure. when I used just one coat under a basecoat, the problem was still there. I couldnt fix it no matter how long I let it dry, or even by brushing nail polish remover over the top to try to release the bubbles. i recently switched to another brand and the problem totally went away, so I know it was this. I had the same issue with other products from this brand (foundation 2 and xtra 4)
This stuff is amazing
Photoangela from Springfield, Illinois
OK so I have Hashimoto which causes my hair scalp nails to be extremely dry. My nails are extremely brittle and always breaking off. I use this stuff and my nails have grown long this is the first in my life…
If you have issues with nails breaking or being brittle really really give this a try. This is way better than hard as nails this actually allows your nails to grow and not break.
Excellent for Damaged Nails

I started using this product when I was getting chemotherapy. My nails became very weak and brittle and sometime even crumbled. I keep my nail short -- I file them short every week -- to keep them from breaking at the quick.
Abby from Louisville
My nails are naturally weak and brittle but ever since I started wearing this, my nails don't break or chip. 100% worth the money.
Higgins from Long Beach exchange
Need to reapply every couple of days for best results.

I bought this "Strengthener" product because they didn't have the "EXTRA" product I usually buy and have been buying for many years for my thin nails! Strengthener worked ok, but not as well and strong as the Extra mix. But, everyone's nails are different. I would recomment this to anyone, but depending how much "strength" they need for their own nails, would recommend buying the EXTRA strength mix. mc 6-24-2020
Does what it says
DAB from NC
I believe it has helped my nails....I have used it twice so far.
Would not buy again. No noticeable improvement.

Anything you have to use daily to maximize effectiveness isn't going to cut it for me in the nail department.
Intensive Therapy 2

It was ok but didnt really wow me.
Great to maintain strong nails!
Juliana from Ashland, MA
I used it before and stoped for a while, just to see if I noticed any difference. I can tell that with Nailtek, my nails won't break and the nail polish stays in longer!
Really helped my Coronavirus quarantine nails!
DD from Va
My nails became so soft after not going for manicures. This product took awhile but it has really started helping make nails stronger again!
I wish I had found this a decade ago
Meredith from Baton Rouge, LA
I love this product. Initially I went back and forth on purchasing this or a few competitor products, but went in to Ulta and this was available, so I grabbed it based on the reviews and I'm so glad that I did. My hands are nothing special, but my nails have been soft and break off for as long as I can remember. It makes painting them or even getting acrylics done useless because within 48 hours it will be gone entirely. My nails just can't keep anything on them. For several years I've looked high and low, buying products that I hoped would help, but nothing ever made a dent. Until NailTek #2. I can't stop raving about it. Now, based on my photo one might think, "this stuff does nothing," but let me tell you—the last time I had my nails grow out past my fingertips, I was pregnant (taking prenatals), and even then they were splitting. The length I have going now is TRANSFORMATIVE. I've been staring at my hands for days waiting for them to break off as I open a door, or load the dishwasher, but nope. They're still there.
Best nail strengthener ever!
LANA from Fort Worth, TX
I wore acrylic nails for 17 years and all of a sudden 5 years ago became allergic. Went to the doctor frantic and the only thing left to do was take them off. My nails were obviously a mess. My nail tech recommended this product and I went through probably 10 bottles in 6 months, but my nails returned to normal. I try and get manicures every week, but when I don't, I still use this product and love it like I always did.
DJ from Chicago
I have tried other brands that promote nail growth, but find this one to be the best. It coats well and doesn't peel easily.
YveH from Atlanta, GA
I returned this product. Was looking for a product to strengthen nails after wearing SNS for the past 2 years. Nail Tek caused nail polish to look cracked.

made my nails stronger in just 1 week.
