If I could scream my praises of this product from a mountain top....I would. It is AMAZING!!!
Then of course you have a 3 step process:
About 3 days ago I got a split index finger nail. I'm SO SICK of having my right index and middle fingernail break. They are my two problem nails. I'm guessing it's because those are my lead fingers on my dominant hand. So they are always in harms way when I'm cleaning or doing things with my hands. What makes it worse, is I'm obsessed with my nails being uniform. So up until then, if I broke a nail, no matter how far down it broke, I'd chop off the rest of my nails. I can't help it, OCD I guess. Anyway, this time I decided "no, I will not give in to my sucky index finger and middle fingernails!" So off to Sally's Beauty Supply I went to see what types of repair kits they had. I came across a few. Mostly patches. My issue with patches is, from my past experience, they lift off of your finger over time and generally I have not had any luck with them. That's when I came across Orly Nail Rescue. Something different.
Orly Nail Rescue Kit contains the following 3 items:
- Brush on nail glue
- A little pot of fine acrylic powder
- A small square buffer
- Paint your nail (the instructions say you paint the whole nail, I did not do this. I only painted the broken spot)
- Dip your finger in the acrylic
- Buff the area
The results were simply fantastic and all I could ever hope for. Not only is my nail rock hard, harder than any of my other nails, but the surface is smooth and the repair is undetectable. That is so important to me. Especially now that I'm photographing my nails. I didn't want anything lumpy or bumpy on my nail, and they aren't. They are smooth as always. Here are some photos of the repair. Don't mind my crusty dry fingers. This is what they look like after I use acetone and have not yet moisturized. :)

It's now 3 days later and my nail is still strong as ever. I've even used acetone on the nail and the repair is still 100% intact. I actually had another nail break last night and was I worried?? Not one bit. Just reached for my Nail Rescue and patched her up. Easy Peasy!!! Here are some pics of that completed nail repair.
Can you see that thin dark line across the top of the nail? It was a HUGE break. The nail almost snapped off completely. Now it's good as new.
Completely smooth and undetectable:
Here is a link to this kit on Sally's Beauty Supply Website:
At my time of purchase they were running a special that if you purchased 2 bottles of Orly Nail Polish you got any Orly nail treatment for free. So instead of just buying the repair kit for $7, I got 2 bottles of Orly polish and the nail kit for $11. GOOD DEAL!!!!!
I hope you enjoyed this review and I also hope you get a chance to try this kit out because I personally think it's awesome!!!
