Description

A nail strengthener that works to improve thin and brittle nails. This product contains Vitamin E so not only does it help to make your nails grow longer, but this First Aid Kiss will help grow your nails stronger. In addition, ella+mila's 7-free formulation offers a healthier alternative for DIY manis. Once you have completed the 4 week process, continue to use this rehydrating nail strengthener as a base coat underneath nail polish.

Application:
Week 1 – Apply one coat of First Aid Kiss to bare, clean nails on day one. Keep the treatment on your nails and on the seventh day, remove from nails using a non-acetone remover.

Week 2 – On the day you remove your Week 1 treatment (the 7th day), apply one coat of First Aid Kiss to bare, clean nails. Keep the treatment on your nails and after another seven days, remove from nails using a non-acetone remover.

Weeks 3 and 4 – Apply one coat of First Aid Kiss every other day. Apply the first day, keep on second day, and remove on the third day. Reapply on the same third day. Repeat for two weeks.

*Once you have completed the 4 week process, continue to use re-hydrating nail strengthener as a base coat underneath shaded nail enamel, if needed. You may repeat this 4 week process if you feel your nails need additional TLC.

*First Aid Kiss can be used underneath nail polish but please note that since it is not an actual base coat, your manicure just may not last as long.

    submitted byRia - 3 years ago

Q: Question, as a first time user, can I also put a color on top of this once it dries while doing the 4 week treatment?

submitted by tamtams - 1 year ago
  • A: Hi tamtams! Yes, you can absolutely apply color over this. You will still want to follow the cadence of removing and re-applying the Nail Strengthener on the Target.com page, but you can put color over it each time you apply a new coat! Hope this helps!

Q: Is this safe to use for nail biters? I have a sensitive stomach and need to know if it could cause digestive distress if small amounts of dried product are ingested. Thank you

submitted by S - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello, thank you for your question. We recommend you use {no more biting} as this is a deterrent for nail biters. {first aid kiss} is a nail strengthening treatment, it’s one of our best sellers but it will not deter one from biting their nails and it’s not safe for ingestion. Hope this helps. Have a great day.

I love this! My parents won't let me get acrylic or press on nails so I've been trying to grow them out. My mom bought this YEARS ago and I finally started using it after 1 week my nails are already so much better!

Sam - 4 days ago
I’m a guy and I love this stuff! My nails started acting up after having covid and I did the recommended treatment and now my nails are growing very strong and healthy. I just wish it wasn’t shiny cause it doesn’t look good on me (wish they had a matte version). To remove, I used the soy polish remover by the same brand. One flaw I’ve noticed is it dries very fast on the applicator. I don’t wear nail polish so I’m not sure if this is common but it does tend to dry really fast on the brush. You gotta dip, polish, and dip back in really quickly.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I followed the instructions for the first week just put one coat on and let it last seven days. Well it doesn’t last two days and it starts to peel off and my nails are breaking underneath it. Not very happy with the product.

I destroyed my nails with an at-home gel kit. I tried to lay off and give them a break but as soon as I’d get a little bit of length they would bend or crack or the top layer of my nail would peel. This product was highly recommended by a stranger who’s nails I complemented. I’ve been using First Aid Kiss for a little over two months and it’s completely saved my nails! They have never been this long without the use of dip powder.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have only used it twice. It says to leave on for a week, but I use nail color on top and it certainly doesn't last a week. During Christmas, I may try to just use this nail strengthener without polish color and see what happens. I do have weak nails so hoping this will help.
