Hi everyone -

I'm so glad to have found this board! You all seem so nice and I plan to come here often.

After some guidance from Katie (thanks Katie!), I found a site that offered NailTek and SolarOil and I just placed my order! I decided on the NailTek Extra as my nails need ALL the help they can get! So, can someone tell me how often to apply it and where the SolarOil comes in??? Thanks!

I will go ahead and tell a bit more about myself since you all seem to know each other fairly well. I am 26 years old and work fulltime in a job that I cannot stand! My passion is anything creative or artistic or anything vintage or recycled. I love travel, yoga, reading and creative writing. I am attending yoga teacher training in June and am excited about that! Yeah! I do not have a bf but talk to a nice guy on a regular basis.

So, that is me in a nutshell. Would love to make some friends on this board so please let me hear from you all! Take care,

Wredd

Hi Katie:

Congrats on your wedding! Your baby Samantha is a cutie!

Here is the site where I got BOTH products:

I will let everyone know when I get the order and how it comes, etc. I hope it does for me what it has done for you! We can hope, right?

Good hearing from you!

Hi Wredd! Glad you found one site that you can order both Nail Tek and SolarOil from. There will be instructions enclosed in your Nail Tek box. You should apply it once a day, everyday for 3 to 4 days, remove it and start over. I find that it's more beneficial if you do not wear nail enamel, but it surely doesn't hurt too. As for SolarOil, the more often you use it the better. Just swipe some oil around your cuticle and underneath the free edge of your fingernail and massage it in. The jojoba oil is a very tiny molecule of oil that will be able to penetrate through the Nail Tek and/or enamel to hydrate your natural nail. The most important time to apply SolarOil, in my opinion is right before bed.

I hope that answers your questions and if you happen to have any other questions, just post them. I'm glad to have you join our board and we all look forward to cheering you on and seeing your results.

Hope your day is a wonderful one.....

Hi Katie! The free edge is the edge of your fingernail that grows over the edge of your finger. It's basically the "length" of your fingernail. The length of the free edge determines if your nails are short or long.

Does that make sense? Let me know if it doesn't.
