This is a great product if like me you have problems with peeling soft nails. I have used Nailtique2 and Nail Envy in the past, amazing products but at around £20 not cheap. Especially if your watching the pennies.
Rimmel Nail Repair offers a cut price remedy that really works. I disregarded the instructions and applied two coats on day one with a further coat every other day for 7 days. I removed with a acetone free varnish remover & repeated the second week.
in addition I use an oil, several times a day, applying a few drops to the hands and nails. I have been using Rescue Oil from Pound land and can find no fault with it. It has a mild perfume and for an oil is aborbed into the skin quickly (again a great budget buy).
You need to bare in mind that peeling soft nails are usually in need of keratin, whilst dry nails require moisture hence my two pronged attack. I assume that Rimmel Nail Rescue contains some form of protein/keratin so you want to avoid getting the treatment on you skin particularly the cuticle I apply the nail rescue avoiding the nail moon.
This product makes the nail feel harder straight away, I assume it contains an active ingredient that absorbs into the nail itself so that over the 2 week period the layers of your nails become fixed together. This is what stops the peeling and allows then to grow. Hurray!!!!!!!!!
Repeat applications would need to be judged on an individual basis.
This stuff is great! It really does harden weak splitting nails. Mine were always awful as I bit them and always split then from day to day knocks at work etc but this really has made a difference in the length, strength and look of my nails! Love the stuff!! :-)
I decided to buy this as I always bit my nails which made them weak even after I stopped, so when starting my beauty therapy course I felt like I needed stronger nails that I could grow longer without breaking.
You can tell by looking at someones nails if they used to or still bite their nails, it takes a long time to repair.
My nails were also very bendy.
About the product
It is a two week treatment which all you need to do is on week one add a coat, week two remove and re apply. It is a clear product so if you can't have coloured nails for work or whichever reason you should still be able to wear this without an issue.
I have continued using this since last August and my nails have gotten much stronger, they no longer bend or break.
I have also used this as a basecoat - dark polish can stain nails, I would also advise applying nail oil before application.
It dries quickly so you don't need to be careful of smudging, it doesn't streak - when it looks like lines down your nails.
It's available for £3.49 in Superdrug.
Clear bottle so you can see the product inside with a white lid, good size of bottle.
Lid a good size to grip properly when applying, red writing making it clear to write. The brush is also a good size for application.
I found this really worked and is worth the money, you don't need much when applying so lasts a long time. Nails are strong and no longer bend or break off.
Doesn't chip off when going for showers/baths so no need to keep applying.
Great application and consistency, nothing worse when you need to buy thinner because its too thick.
I would definitely recommend this product to keep your nails healthy.
I am the type of person who will not be overly attentive to her nails but I'm a lady and like them to be somewhat presentable. I have lost count of the amount of times I have tried to grow my nails without success. In my latest attempt a few months ago I came cross Rimmel nail rescue and thought it was worth the try. it comes in a regular size bottle and is about £2-£3 which I thought was reasonable.
It is a 2 week treatment which involves coating your nails in one layer on the first day and then again on the second day, you leave this for a week and repeat on the second week after which you should see some results.
The issue with my nails are that they get brittle and dry and thin and tend to break so easily. I found that using this polish my nails instantly looked brighter which meant we were off to a good start. after the two weeks the difference was clear, I won't say I had miracle perfection nails but my nails were a lot stronger and grow better when I use this, if I go without it it for an extended period of time it is back to square one.
I also find that this is a good way to get nails back into shape after long periods of wearing nail polish or using false nails. The polish itself is also very easy to apply and not much mess for those in a rush.
I'm living in South Africa and my friends daughter bought her the Rimmel Nail Rescue and my friends nails are beautiful. We did check some stores here in South Africa but at our Rimmel counters, we could not found the nail rescue. Can you please let me know if you do sell the product in South Africa. Her daughter is only coming back in July and I really need the nail rescue now. Please let me know if you do sell it in South Africa.Thanks
I often have nails that look aweful because i stick on false ones!when they ping off or i have to pull them off because they are starting to looking messy, my nails are all cracked and break very easily. Even cutting them down does not get rid of the cracks which run all the way across the nail. I use this as a treatment (following the instructions given on the bottle) to help sort my horrid nails out. I find that it works rather well, but the results do not show as quik as i would like them to. It definately helps to strengthen my nails, but i find that some times the nail varnish just peels straight off if they have been in water for long periods of time (like when in the bath or doing the dishes). I would recommend this product to anyone that wants to make their nails look better! Remember, people always see your hands so dont let them put you to shame!
I have probably spent most of my life biting and chewing my nails and have only had long(ish) nails for about 5 years. When I was younger my parents tried everything to stop me from biting them, including putting mustard under my nails (they were desperate for me to stop!) and applying 'Stop and Grow' which I used to chew off (and didn't mind the taste!) and the only reason I stopped was because at the local fish and chip shop I noticed the girl who was serving me had similar nails to me at the time and it looked awful - so from that point onwards I stopped biting them.
As a result of me previously biting my nails way too short and looking like I had bulbous E.T. fingers, my nails are now very soft and so weak that I can bend my nails back (I know - it sounds disgusting). I hardly ever have a full set of fingernails the same length as they get to a certain length and break.
One of my work colleagues recommended I use Rimmel Nail Rescue as her nails are perfect (she also still lives her parents and doesn't do any cleaning, which probably helps!).
Rimmel Nail Rescue is part of Rimmel's Nail Care range. It is a clear nail varnish that comes in a clear 12ml pot and has a white top with red writing. There is a sticky label on the back on the varnish that opens up with details of usage. Rimmel Nail Rescue is a 2 week treatment that hardens nails making them stronger, more resilient and reduces chipping and splitting. Generally nail treatments that come in nail varnish pots tend to be a serum that you apply - more like a cuticle oil which moisturises the nail, however this is a treatment that doubles up as a glossy clear varnish, so looks great on it's own.
In terms of application, you apply 1 coat days 1 & 2 of week 1. Repeat treatment at beginning of week 2. Remove after week 2 and hey presto - you have stronger nails. There is a warning with the treatment, as it contains Formaldehyde, however I was surprised that this didn't affect my nails and make then go Yellow. You also need to protect cuticles with grease or oil before application, but I have found that a small dab of Vaseline rubbed into your nails gives plenty of protection.
I have followed the two week treatment twice and unlike normal varnish, when you get your hands wet or been in the bath too long, the varnish doesn't peel, so it is quite durable. It makes your nails very hard and was pleasantly surprised not to have any chipping or breaking. My nails following the treatment are in better condition; they are no longer 'bendy' and look a lot healthier.
At £4.99 it is quite expensive, but when you compare this to other nail treatments such as Sally Hensen's range, it is cheap and most importantly of all - it actually works!
So for longer, stronger and harder nails I would definitely recommend Rimmel Nail Rescue.
Available at Superdrug and Boots.
