I was given an offer by Dermelect to try one of their nail treatments. So I chose the Launchpad Nail Strengthener, a treatment basecoat. The press release states that it is an anti-aging nail treatment that is the first to utilize protein-peptide technology to hydrate and strengthen nails. This is the same technology used for the treatment of aging skin. This treatment has a 'green' formula and is free of DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde.
After wearing this treatment for a couple weeks I must say I was pretty impressed. My nails look naturally shiny and healthy and I've had very minimal breaks or chipping. The treatment also serves as an excellent basecoat as my polishes seemed to last a couple days longer. And I've actually noticed a decreasing of the yellow tint on my nails (from wearing so much polish). If you're looking for a good treatment to help with dry, brittle nails that chip and break often, this treatment might be for you.
Brace yourself girls, this treatment comes with a steep price but I think it's worth it...it retails for $18.00 and can be bought on the Dermelect website. They also offer a wide variety of skincare products. Check them out.
