I have been getting gel nails for many, many years now and it hit me earlier this year that this was a complete waste of money (not to mention bad for my nails), so I was in search for a solution to long and NATURAL nails. I think I have finally found my answer and that is NailTek! Since having my gel nails removed, my nails were quite weak, translucent and soft. I chose to use the Intense Therapy II formulation. I bought my set from The Shopping Channel, which includes the base coat/ridge filler and top clear coat, as well as a crystal file — all for under $40. This is a very good deal considering I used to spend about $50-$70 every 2-4 weeks to have my gel nails refilled.

I am now completely in love and dependent on this product! It allows my nails to stay long the natural way. It’s also super easy to use. Just apply a coat of the ridge filler foundation followed by the top coat. You can apply the top coat as many times as you like to protect your nails and keep them strong. You can also apply your favorite nail polish on top of the foundation, then use the top coat again to seal your nails in.
