Firstly - thank you for stopping by! :) I have (and always had) very weak, brittle and peeling nails. I don't think it has to do with my diet or genetics. I had bad exema when I was a child and back then (in the 70s), I had cortizone baths. I have effects on my skin because of that. Anyways....with that being said. For months, I did acrylic nails and I LOVED having long nails for the first time in my life! I started going to a salon that were not certified technicians - they were great at nails but, would rip off the acrylic vs sanding them off. I then went to a certified nail technician and was happy....they were just too far for me. I found a great technician close to home but she doesn't do acrylic - ok, I'm fine with that. She does Brisa gel with or without Shellac (client's choice). My problem: since my nails peel so easily, nothing works! I've been doing the CDN Rescue RX and that helps a lot but, I still come across issues. I tried Shellac...after one week, they'd peel off. I tried both the Brisa gel and shellac - same thing! I desperately want long nails....aside from acrylic (which I'm hoping to avoid), what can I do? Or can she do? Is there a top coat that would prevent from peeling? Is there a different treatment I can do that could help? Due to allergies, she cannot do anything powder..... (acrylic or dip). Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Much love. Vallandra.
