Nail Recovery System- it's not complicated at all, really!
We've been asked (more than once) on how to use our Nail Recovery System. Sometimes things don't seem as simple as they are and they need that extra clarification. But in this case, the Nail Recovery System is really an easy step-by-step regimen to go from damaged to naturally beautiful nails.
Here are the most common questions asked and our answers to them:
1. Is the Launchpad base coat to be used only once daily, or as the nail grows out?
2. When is the Makeover Ridge used?
3. How much/often should I use the High Maintenance top coat?
Thank you for your wonderful nail products. Over 20 yrs ago I had fake nails and I got the worst fungus which cost me $$ to get rid of. Since then my nails have been like rice paper (18 yrs) I have tried Barielle, etc. and NOTHING worked to strengthen them. I read about you in a magazine and thought, "Oh well I will try something new AGAIN"!! Needless to say, your product worked fantastically and I finally have nails and they are very strong. It is a miracle!!!! I am so happy to see a little white tip on my fingers like everyone else has.
By the way I also am planning to try some of your skin products soon. If they are as good as the nail products, I should be looking like I am 50 very soon?? I am 71, but a young 71!!!!!

Your first step is to determine which of the base coats, Launchpad Nail Strengthener or Makeover Ridge Filler, you will be using. What you will start off with will depend on whether you see ridges and/or discoloration in your nails or not. If the answer is yes, I would recommend starting off with 1-2 coats of the Makeover Ridge Filler to instantly camouflage any damage while treating the nails with peptides and moisture. You can then follow with either a second coat or color polish (if desired). Finally finish off with 1-2 coats of the High Maintenance Instant Nail Thickener.
If you do not have ridges in your nails and have thin, brittle nails, use the Launchpad Nail Strengthener as your base and then proceed as previously directed. All lacquers are applied traditionally.
As for how often to use these products, you should use your own discretion. If you find you use your hands a great deal either gardening, cooking, washing dishes, typing, etc., you may notice wear quicker than someone else. I would recommend applying the lacquers at least once a week and at most every few days. Remove excess polish with an acetone-free remover and then reapply.
Hope this helps- please feel free to contact us if you need any further clarification. Otherwise, enjoy the treatments and your 'new' nails!
