My second bottle so far, Love it!

Love that it dries so fast and it appears to add layers to my natural nails. I put a new layer daily and remove it all to start over every 5 days or so. I don’t like that the color is an ugly off yellow after a few coats (pretty much the same color that it is in the bottle – the 1st and maybe 2nd coat will just look like natural nail), but it’s not an issue if you add a coat of regular nail polish on top after a few layers of the Nail Tek III. Not that you have to have multiple layers of this stuff if you really just want a little strength under color polish, one coat may work for you too. I just have extremely thin nails that split & break constantly so I like more layers to make my nails stronger. I also have the Nail Tek II which adds a clear shine but I hardly use it because I’m always rushed for time & the III dries much faster. This product (NT III) is not for use over nail polish as it dries completely matte (no shine & as dull as natural nails) but it is great to add layers to your nails as a base coat. Love it

Nail polish does NOT stay on my nails – even gel starts chipping off by day two. I searched online for people like me with this issue, to see if they had any advice. Currently, Im trying: roughing my nails with a nail block, then wiping nails with alcohol. Apply a nail dehydrant to each nail, then put on Nailtek Foundation 3, followed by 2 coats of polish and a topcoat. So far, so good! I’m a happy girl with great nails!

Will not be without it………….

Never could grow and maintain a decent length, healthy nail until I started using this product. I use the protection topcoat also,and now my nails are so long I have to clip them at least every 8 to 10 days. This stuff makes my nails so strong they do not bend and brake like before and it keeps my polish in picture perfect condition until I am ready to remove it (for me at least once a week as I like to match my clothes). Excellent product; I will not be without it. Only drawback, once I stop using, my nails revert back to bad condition.

This stuff really works! It won’t completely cover the ridges, but a light buffing before applying one coat of this will cover them completely. Even without buffing, two coats of Nailtek nearly covers the ridges and after you apply your nail color any ridges are mostly unnoticeable. I will continue to buy this.

Works really good. I am going to reorder. Be sure to get base product and final coat to go with this one. It all works together.
