Hello everyone!

I have been looking over the board and decided to join you all! I have some terrible nails and always have had. They are short and I pick at them, not bite, and it is a HARD habit to break! I tried acrylic nails but they are so expensive to keep up and I don't like really LONG, LONG nails; I just want them active and healthy looking. THEY ARE NOT! So, acrylics are not really an option for me.

I have read several posts about Nail Tek and Solar Oil and would like to know more. Does this really work? For everyone? Please let me know! I'll be checking back! THANKS!!!

wredd, i dont know of it works for everyone, but my nails were flacking, and peeling, and broken off ALL the time - they were always an embarassment! When i started using nail tek i noticed a difference in 3 days. i have been using it less than a month, and my nails look and feel SO healthy! thay are out right to and past the tips of my figers and have NOT even looked like they were going to break. They would have been long since broken by now with out it. I dont knwo about solaroil, im waiting for mine to be delivered... but if works even close to as well as nailtek - i'll be extatic!

Just a note from a natural nail newbie! Give it a shot, i dont htink you will be disappointed!

Katie,

Thanks for your quick reply. Where did you order your NailTek? I was surfing around looking for it and didn't come up with much. And are there different products by NailTek and if so, which do I get? Thanks again for your help!

Welcome to the board wredd! I'm glad you decided to join us! Katie has given you some wonderful advice and links to some of the products myself and others who visit the board have found works for us.

There are several places you can check for Nail Tek, Seche Vite and SolarOil. You might try Sally's, Trade Secrets, Ulta and your local salons should either carry these products or be able to order them for you. Check with your hairdresser as well. I can't imagine he/she wouldn't be able to get these products for you.

You can also do a product search on the board and read all the post regarding these products. In the left hand corner you'll see: Find Messages About______. Put in any of these product names in the box and all the posts that have been made about these products, both good and bad will be displayed.

And please, if you happen to have any questions feel free to post them. I'm sure someone on the board will have an answer or can at least point you in the right direction.

Again, WELCOME to the board and I look forward to seeing you often!
