I have been using the NailTek II for almost 3 weeks i guess now - my nails have never looked so good! they are long (er) and seem to be healthy! You guys are awesome!!! normally if they had gotten this long, in a matter of 2-3 days they would all be broken off.

I have ordered the SolarOil as you suggested, and i have stopped putting color on my nails due to the peeling of whats being put on. I am putting the nailtek on every day as it says, but now it is peeling up as well - not nearly as bad as the polish was, this is just slightly. I dont understand this.

Do you think the solaroil will help this? i dont want to stop using nailtek, it is so awesome (i hope someone is making alot of money).

Another question i have is the sidesof my fingers, besde the nail is usually hard, and it peels (long before i started using nailtek), and it can look nasty, and sometimes they bleed, and scab, it it just looks bad. Is there anything i can do to make it normal again?

Thanks,

Katie

Hi Kas

The reason your nail tek is peeling off is that we are now in the waning moon when your nail is not absorbing what you are putting on them, as for the hardness around the edge of your nail (i take it you are talking about your skin) if you remove hard skin areas only during the waning moon cycle you will be able to get this under control and once again have normal skin in this area.

Hope this has helped

Hi Katie! Glad to hear you are loving Nail Tek. That product rocks! I do think that SolarOil will help keep the Nail Tek on. Use SolarOil as much as you want, you cannot use too much of that product. I also think it will help with the hard,peeling skin on the sides of your nails. As SolarOil is a nail & skin conditioner.

Also, always try to wear gloves when cleaning, working in the yard, doing dishes, anytime your hands and nails might be in water for long periods of time. That should help with the peeling of the Nail Tek and/or polish.

What happens when your nails are in excess amounts of water, your natural nails swell along with the polish you have on. Then when the natural nail dry out, they return to their natural shape. But, the polish doesn't. I hope that makes sense.

Please keep us posted on how you are doing with Nail Tek and let us know your thoughts regarding SolarOil.
