Q: is this product an oil that you paint on or is it hard like a polish

submitted by wanda - 5 years ago
  • A: You can wear as just a clear polish; I do 2 or 3 coats. Or I use 2 coats as a base coat, 1 or 2 coats of colored nail polish, and then use this as 1 coat for topcoat (in a day this will oxidize your color making it a bit darker). Better than acrylic nails if your nails peel from too much pool time or if you are a salt water diver. Will make your nails bullet proof.

    submitted byCrazy Mary - 5 years ago
  • A: Dries quick to a shine and hard like a polish. The best product I have ever used for my peeling nails.

    submitted byLinda - 5 years ago

Q: What's the difference between this product and Formula 2? Will it make that much of a difference? I have always bitten my nails due to stress and then it's become a habit. I want healthy pretty nails.

submitted by shannonsfchef - 1 year ago
  • A: Formula 2 Plus® is an option for those who have used Formula 2 for at least six weeks without color polish and have excessive problem nails.

    submitted byAmanda T - 1 year ago

Q: How often can you use Nailtiques?

submitted by Kele - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Kele! Apply daily. As nails respond, decrease application. Once nails have improved, return to Formula 2 until desired results are achieved. Hope this helps!

I have used this product off and on for years. I bought a new bottle and went home and put on my 2 coats like usual and it started burning INCREDIBLY bad. I felt like someone was trying to chop the tips of my fingers off and it would not stop. I tried to stick it out to see if it got better but after the same amount of pain for 30min i removed the product and 15 minutes later it started to improve. I probably won't ever use this again which is very sad because in the past it was a great product.

Used this for the first time as base and top coat with Sand polish I use all the time and as soon as it began to dry my nails started burning. I removed it completely but am still experiencing the burning sensation, hopefully it calms down shortly. I’ve use Nailtiques 2 in the past with no issue but this is horrific. Never again with this brand.

Just tried this product on my nails, let me just say this was the worst pain I’ve ever experienced, and I’ve gone through labor! I quite literally thought I was going to throw up/pass out from the pain. It was actually making me sick! After 5 minutes I had to remove it from my nails but the pain still lasted for about 15 minutes after that. Will never buy from this company ever again. If you want to experience the pain of having your fingernails ripped off this is as close as you’ll get.

i like this product a lot as it has helped my nails be less prone to cracks/breaking. my only complaint is that the brush and bottle are soo small😭and once it gets low it’s hard to get the product at the bottom as the brush is too short/small. hope they consider changing this!

I’ve been taking nail & hair supplements for years and still had thin brittle nails. My dermatologist suggested applying Vaseline, which seemed to make my brittle nails worse. I am amazed that this polish made all of my nails stronger and kept my problem nail with ridges from splitting vertically. No other product has helped my nails the way that nailtiques formula 2 has!

Im always amazed at how well this stuff works! My nails seem to frequently peel and thin out during the winter months and this is the only thing that makes them healthy again. One week with everyday use is all it takes. I clip my nails down short, apply this every night before bed and then remove it after one week. For a few weeks after I like to use this as a base and top coat with polish. I always keep it on hand...amazing product!

Multiple nail technicians have told me how naturally brittle my nails are. They never grow unless I have dip powder on constantly. I wanted to take a break from getting my nails done and asked the technician to put something on my nails that would help strengthen them. She put this on and my nails didn’t break for a week (when usually they break the next day). I bought a bottle for myself to consistently use and I am so impressed! I’ve tried so many nail strengtheners and this is the ONLY one that actually works!!! Definitely worth the money!

Anonymous - 7 months ago, Verified purchaser
I painted all my nails with this and thought it was fine, but after a few minutes it BURNED. It was so insanely painful and nothing made it feel better and it lasted for 30+ mins. I thought maybe it was just because my cuticles were cut up, so I waited a week for them to heal and applied the product again and the same thing happened. I can’t even explain how painful it was.

They must have changed the formula. I bought this a year ago and it helped and grew my nails tremendously. I recently bought this again in September due to my nails thinning from wear gel polish. This formula burned my nails so bad and chipped and split them so badly. After 3 weeks I have come to the realization that this was hurting my nails more than it was helping and I've seen no results. Do not buy this.

AM - 7 months ago, Verified purchaser
I have soft, bendy, peeling nails…so badly that I just can’t ever grow them out because they break and peel as soon as I get some length. I’ve tried MULTIPLE similar products and have never been impressed, but THIS stuff is gold. After a couple of applications (at least a couple times per week between peel-off base gel sets) I actually noticed my nails are stronger, flexible without cracking, and even feel like they’re coming in thicker! No peeling either. If your natural nails are just not giving, you won’t regret trying this stuff 🙌🏼

I just got this so potential update later. I like the thickness of the polish itself. NOT the applicator brush though. It is not like even as nice as my sally hansen ones. I didn’t expect it to be opi quality brush but come on man. 😅

I was born with weak nails as a genetic condition. In all my decades of looking, this is the only product I've found that has helped! Please pardon my conjugation of a word not meant to be conjugated. This is not a genetic affliction.
