I knew better than to get 2 shellac manicures back-to-back, but I did it anyway. Now I’m paying the price. My nails were breaking left and right so I needed to bring out the big guns if I had any chance to repair the damage. Named for the British equivalent of “911” Nail 999 Rescue System by butter LONDON features a base coat and a top coat designed to instantly brighten and strengthen nails while providing a smooth canvas for color. The system is formulated with a blend of horsetail extract, soy, wheat and keratin proteins, calcium minerals, biotin vitamins and vitamin B. Together the polishes are meant to offer instant relief to dry brittle nails and rejuvenates nails damaged by UV-gel manicures.
Just apply one coat of base coat to clean, dry nails. Let dry completely. Follow with two coats of nail color, letting each coat dry completely. Finally, apply one coat of top coat over your finished look and let dry completely. Reapply twice a week. For a more intensive treatment, apply base coat and top coat without any nail lacquer and reapply both every other day (which is what I have been doing). Remove with regular nail polish remover after three applications and start over.
So far (after a week) Nail 999 Rescue Basecoat and the Nail 999 Rescue Topcoat have been my savior. I can tell I am on my way to recovery.
