problems will The Incredible Protection System help?
TIPS® is an effective solution for most nail-related
problems including peeling, cracking, splitting, chipping, ridging,
discoloration and brittleness. Many users have also reported a reduced
incidence of hangnails and nail biting.
How do I apply TIPS® Nail Conditioner?
It is important to shake your bottle of TIPS® Nail Conditioner for at least 10 to 15 seconds every time before applying TIPS®. Apply the TIPS® treatment when your nails are driest, which for most of us is first thing in the morning. Be sure to apply TIPS® before exposing your hands to water, as it is designed to treat and protect your nails and cuticles from the damage caused by water and other harsh substances throughout the entire day. Take that first 60 seconds of the day for your nails.Apply TIPS® daily to your cuticles, the entire top surface of your nails, the underside of your nails and the skin around your nails all the way up to your first knuckle. It is important to treat the area around the root of your nail, which is located just before your first knuckle. Once you are done applying the solution to all of your nails, wipe the
excess into your hands just like hand cream.
When will I see
Results vary with different users, but generally speaking,
with everyday use as directed, results will be seen within 4 to 6 weeks. The key to success is to stick with the
program and to call us on our toll free line if you have questions or need
assistance in using our product.
Is TIPS® a nail
polish or a nail hardener?
No. TIPS® is a conditioning oil that contains our secret ingredient, unlike nail polish
and hardeners, does not contain any volatile or fast drying chemicals. Since TIPS® is an treatment, it will not dry on the surface of the nail. Once you are
done applying the solution to all of your nails, wipe the excess into your
hands just like hand cream.
Can I use TIPS®
more than once a day?
Absolutely. You can use TIPS® as many times a day as you
like. TIPS® uses natural ingredients and is non-toxic. You will be able to
tell over time when your nails can use a treatment. Needs depend on your
lifestyle and the types of chemicals and levels of moisture your nails are
Can I wear nail
For best results we suggest that you do not wear nail polish,
especially if you are just starting with TIPS®. If you are a new user we
recommend taking at least a 4 to 6 week holiday from nail polish. Once your nails
start to improve you can recommence your use of nail polish, but as always,
avoid contact with the cuticle and skin around the nail. Continue to apply the TIPS® solution as directed to the cuticle area, the skin surrounding the
nail and underneath the nail.
Can I use TIPS® if
I have artificial nails?
Yes. If you wear nail polish or acrylics, simply apply TIPS® to the cuticle area, the skin around the nail, underneath your nails and the skin around your nails all the way up to your first knuckle. It is important to treat the area around the root of your nail, which is located just before your first knuckle. TIPS® is a great way to grow out your artificial nails too. In the meantime, do not attempt to rip or peel your artificial nails off, just stop going for fills, and cut the ends right down and keep applying TIPS® twice daily. Used as directed, TIPS® will help you remove your artificial nails without damaging your natural nail.
Should I use hand
cream with TIPS®?
When using hand creams or lotions you should avoid getting
these products on your nails. The waxes and silicones contained in these
products can put up a barrier on the surface of the nail inhibiting the
absorption of TIPS® We recommend that you use our Revival Skin Conditioning
Milk to moisturize your hands instead of other products that are harsh and can reduce TIPS® effectiveness.
How is TIPS® for
Toes different from TIPS® for nails?
There are some specific challenges related to proper care
of toenails. Generally, toenails are much thicker than fingernails and the skin
around the cuticle is much tougher. The tremendous amount of moisture in shoes
and socks exacerbates many of the problems we see with fingernails. To address
these problems, TIPS® for Toes is supercharged with 33% more of our
exclusive ingredient. We've also added Vitamin E, an oil-soluble antioxidant to
reduce oxidization of the lipids that the skin and cuticles need to be properly
moisturized. Vitamin E is also a natural emollient, which will moisturize and
Does TIPS® help
stop nail biting?
Although TIPS® is not formulated for this specific
problem, it promotes cessation of nail biting by what it does for your nails,
eliminating the usual nail problems that promote a biting event. Nail biting is
often initiated by chipping, splitting or brittleness, any of which our TIPS® Nail Conditioner will solve. If you still start to bite your nail, you
will then notice a much different nail texture, which will also help break the
