Peeling nails

Had my acrylics removed after many years as I've decided I prefer the natural look. Only issue is shellac keeps chipping off fairly soon afterwards because my nails are so weak and peeling.

Does anyone have a fix for it, OPI nail envy hasn't helped.

I use Nailtiques Formula 2 and it has really helped my nails. It's roughly the same price as OPI

I swear by Rimmel nail rescue. It really helped my nails after gel nails. I still use it if I ever take my gel polish off and it's still effective.

I'm currently using a combination of CND Solar Oil and CND Rescue Rxx to try and revive my nails. I've also been told to stop filing my nails and use nail clippers or nail scissors and just trim them instead. It's definitely helping.

Nailtiques formula 2 completely sorted out my nails, no peeling and strong but flexible.

Nail envy did nothing for my peeling either although it did make them stronger.

Rub Vaseline in as often as you remember throughout the day and last thing at night, in a week you'll notice the difference.

You really need to goto a salon that does ibx products. I'm a therapist and recommend that over anything.

My nails were peeling for literally years and nothing helped. And believe me I tried everything. Read about ibx and didn't believe it tbh. But o ordered some and honestly my nails have never been better.

Try and contact ibx for your nearest salon. It's only about a fiver to have applied.
