Project focus 10: Orly Nailtrition

It’s two Two two Day! (February 22nd; 2-22, heh) I absolutely just made that up. Maybe the world will end when it’s Feb 22, 2222.  None of us will online that long anyway, so no worries.

Today is the halfway point of job focus 10 series as well as I’ll be reviewing Orly Nailtrition nail Strengthener & growth Treatment:

I’ve been utilizing this as my nail treatment considering that mid-December, so I’ve had this on my nails constantly for about 2 months. I gotten my bottle from Sally appeal supply (the only bricks as well as mortar store that offers Orly near me) for $17 for 18ml. (NailPolishCanada likewise stocks it)  It is made in the USA as well as has a suggested lifespan of 3 years from opening.

I’ve checked a hold of different nail strengtheners / hardeners throughout the years including the famed OPI nail Envy (which was just ok, didn’t see a considerable improvement). What offered me on this is what Orly declares on this product:

Strengthen peeling nails as well as stimulate healthier, quicker growth with this advanced formula consisting of collagen, Wheat Protein, Keratin as well as Bamboo Extract.

Peeling nails is what I experience from! I have relatively strong nails that grow just fine, they don’t break or bend or split, however they do tend to peel off in sheets, like this:

My thumb, index as well as middle fingers are a lot of prone to this phenomenon.

I discovered so much about nail treatments from one of my much-loved nail blogs: loodie loodie loodie (she no longer updates however I’m delighted to still have gain access to to her understanding base).  She did a series just on nail hardeners as well as treatments to breaks down crucial components as well as what kinds of nail conditions are finest treated by each.  Prior to Nailtrition, I was devoted to Witchcraft (original formula), which is a formaldehyde based hardener indicated for thin, cracking nails. I don’t have thin cracking nails however I discovered it to work well for me so I just kept utilizing it. however then the Witchcraft original formula was discontinued as well as made formaldehyde-free.  I made a decision to try something new as well as relied on Orly Nailtrition which had great evaluations online.

According to what I discovered from loodie’s blog, Nailtrition is a protein based treatment, however with added moisturizers, as shown in the product’s component listing (items bolded to highlight the key ingredients):

ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, nitrocelluloseadipic acid / neopentyl glycol / trimellitic anhydride copolymer, isopropyl alcohol, propyl acetate, trimethyl pentanyl diisobutyrate, triphenyl phosphate, n-butyl alcohol, stearalkonium bentonite, CI 77163 (bismuth oxychloride), citric acid, dimethicone, CI77891 (titanium dioxide), water (aqua), hydrolized keratin, hydrolyzed wheat protein, hydrolyzed collagen, saccharomyces / calcium ferment, saccharomyces / iron ferment, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil, bambusa vulgaris extract, CI15850 (red 7)

Protein based nail treatments coupled with moisturizers are perfect for peeling nails.  What mostly triggers peeling nails is the lack of wetness in the nails – my nails are particularly prone to peeling during the chilly bitter wintertime months. as well as I’m a regular hand washer – it’s chilly & flu season, as well as I take no chances!

Apologies for exactly how dry my hand is! as well as I’d just eliminated Essie Starry Starry night so there are hints of blue polish residue.

I utilize Orly Nailtrition by applying it to my clean bare nails, letting it dry completely, then adding Orly Bonder on top as a my base coat. then I do my manicure as normal: 2 coats of polish as well as then topcoat. I tried utilizing just Nailtrition as my base coat however I discovered that my nail polish doesn’t last also without Bonder.  I’ve likewise used Nailtrition alone as my “manicure” when I was incredibly lazy ideal after Christmas holidays. It’s lightly tinted as well as supplies a pinky peach color to the nails – my coworker really complimented on me on my “nail polish” as well as asked what shade it was.

As with a lot of nail treatments, I didn’t notice results ideal away, however I started seeing enhancements by around the one month mark. I experienced zero peeling on my middle fingers, as well as then only minor peeling on my index as well as thumb. Last week, I observed that I had no new peels.  Amazing!  I’ll keep utilizing this as well as report back if anything changes.  This bottle will likely last me 10 months with constant utilize as well as I plan on repurchasing this, as long as it keeps working for me.

• It works!
• Dries quickly
• minor tinted colour makes it appropriate for using alone

• Not great as a base coat
• Takes at least a month to produce results

Stash worthiness: 9/10

Do you utilize a nail strengthening treatment?  Which one?
