T.I.P.S. Nail Strengthening Conditioner Duo .24oz
I purcashed this product because my cuticles and hangnails are so bad. I have been using it for a few weeks now twice a day and my nails are looking better. They were in such bad shape is why I treat twice a day and I plan to treat once a day after a month. It is easy to use and I like the way it smells. Thank you!
Stop...Don't Do It.
The directions say to put it on the first thing in the morning, before your hands are in water. Really? That was never mentioned on TV. I have a job, I need to get myself together to get out of the house. If that's the only thing I did wrong that made this product not work for me, then it will never work for me. It is an oil that makes cuticles look wonderful immediately after you rub it on. But this is the real world, I wash my hands several times throughout the day. Yes, I re-applied 4 times a day, but after a month, my cuticles/nails do not look any better. Only right after T.I.P.S. is applied do they look good. Plus, this stuff smells AWFUL! After a while, in between washings, my cuticles and nails are exactly the same -- they are still dry and chipping in between applications. This is quite expensive for not doing what it claims. Go get drugstore cuticle oil for a fraction of the cost.
I've wanted this for awhile and especially since we moved to 6500 fit above sea level which has dried out my nails and cuticles. Received yesterday and read directions. FIRST DIRECTION... to apply within 30 seconds of waking up in the morning!! Before any water gets on your hands. Seriously? That wasn't mentioned in the presentation, neither was it mentioned that you should apply FOUR TIMES A DAY. While this may seem trivial, it isn't because this product NEVER DRIES.... this is AN OIL and it gets EVERYWHERE. I didn't slop it on either (too expensive)... and I made sure to rub it into my hands (without massaging the cuticles, another step in the directions)... even after wiping it off carefully, I still got the oil on the lenses of my prescription glasses!!! Even after three lens-wipes, I still have smudges on my lenses... NOT satisfactory. I can't even tell you if this works or not because I can't live like this and It's going back tomorrow.
I LIKE THIS PRODUCT SO FAR
I ordered this product as a last resort. I have used ProStrong and just about every other nail product offered on the Q. So far, this is working very nicely on my nails. They peel, chip, break and I usually cannot get them to grow. When I started using this product, my nails had just been done and I started using it right away. While I haven't noticed them growing, my cuticles and nails are doing nicely. Only problem I see with T.I.P.S. is, it is very expensive and I do not think I will be able to spend the $$s for it. Other than the smell, I like this product very much!
Don't waste your $$
Pretty expensive for 2 little (.24 fl oz) bottles. I still have 1/2 of 1 bottle left & should have returned it, but I missed the deadline. I see absolutely no difference in the strength and appearance of my nails!! The liquid is so thin that you have to dip the brush 3 times for each nail - would be must easier with a roll-on ball applicator. So I didn't like the price, the results, or the application.
So far so good
I am using this product in conjunction with Shea Butter. I think it is working nicely.
Finally Long Natural Nails
Tiring of acrylic and gel nails, the expense, the damage to my nails, the heavy feeling, the time wasted in a salon, I decided to go natural and was left with thin, weak, splitting nails for months.... until.... I found this product. I stuck with it and kept applying daily for 2 weeks straight and began to see a transformation. My nails were stronger. One month later, my nails are super strong, growing longer, and almost look like I'm wearing acrylics they are so perfect and my cuticles are smooth and soft. What I can say. It worked for me.
was amazed at how quickly this product worked. I had a nail that was splitting vertically and it is now growing correctly. all my nails grew, used twice a day.
Difficult to Follow Instructions
I love the idea of T.I.P.S., but can't follow the instructions of putting it on as soon as I get up. I wash my hands first thing. So I've used this several days in the afternoon. Haven't seen any difference yet, but it is easy to put on, and has no weird odor. I hope I see progress with doing it in a different way.
Worth a Try
I've used this product for the past eight months. It has done wonders for my cuticles, I don't have hangnails anymore (a life-long problem), my nails are clearer and not discolored, and they seem to grow faster.
They do still chip however, and I wouldn't even think of trying the "bend back" trick the creator of the product does.
10 Months With Little Results!
After using the product for 10 months now, following instructions, I have noticed little of the promised results. My cuticles seem to be better, but my nails still peel, split and now they are breaking on the sides. Wanted to believe the hype of the presentations that this was the answer to peeling and splitting, but no such luck. Have given it long enough to work. Will go back to Pro Strong.
With all the great reviews I was disappointed to find that this didn't work for me. I used it religiously and exactly as instructed for 2 months. My nails still chipped, peeled and broke.Bummer! Save your money. I've gone back to Sally Hansen
