What nail problems will TIPS Nail Conditioner help?
TIPS is an effective solution for most nail-related problems
including peeling, cracking, splitting, chipping and brittleness. Many users
have also reported a reduced incidence of hangnails and nail biting.
How do I apply TIPS Nail Conditioner?
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?
Results vary with different users, but generally speaking, with everyday
use as directed, results will be seen within 4 to 6 weeks. However, it will
take 4 to 9 months for your nail to replace itself fully and twice that long
for toenails. 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
Is TIPS Nail Conditioner a nail polish or a nail hardener?
No. TIPS Nail Conditioner is a conditioning oil that contains
our secret ingredient. Unlike nail polish and hardeners TIPS Nail Conditioner does
not contain any volatile or fast drying chemicals. TIPS Nail Conditioner 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 Nail Conditioner more than once a day?
Absolutely. You can use TIPS Nail Conditioner as many times a
day as you like. TIPS Nail Conditioner 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 exposed to.
Can I wear nail polish when using TIPS Nail Conditioner?
For best results we suggest that you do not wear nail polish, especially
if you are just starting with TIPS Nail Conditoiner. 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 Nail Conditioner 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
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.
Will TIPS be washed off if I have a shower, wash my hands or
do the dishes immediately after applying it?
No, TIPS will not be washed off because it
is designed to penetrate your nail and cuticle area and is absorbed almost
immediately. Unlike other products, which dry on your nail, this
unique conditioning treatment is not on
your nail, but rather it is in your
nail, thus providing your nails and cuticles with the necessary protection
caused by excessive or repeated exposure to water or other damaging substances.
Can I use my hand cream when using TIPS Nail Conditioner?
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
Nail Conditioner. We recommend that you use TIPS Skin Conditioning Milk to
moisturize your hands instead of other products that reduce TIPS Nail
Conditioners effectiveness. TIPS Skin Conditioning Milk contains no waxes
or silicones and has been proven to increase the penetration of TIPS Nail
How is TIPS Toe Nail Conditioner different from TIPS Nail Conditioner?
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 additional 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 condition.
Can TIPS Toe Nail Conditioner be used on your finger nails?
Yes, of course. In fact we recommend
using TIPS Toe Nail
Conditioner, as it is 33 % stronger, for people whose hands are more exposed to
water and/or chemical substances, for instance: parents of young children,
hairdressers, veterinarians, hospital staff, kitchen staff, just to name a few.
We also recommend TIPS Toe Nail Conditioner if you are on medication that dries
out your nails or increases your nails natural moisture such as thyroid
medications. TIPS Toe
Nail Conditioner is also great for people who want to grow out their artificial
nails. In this case, simply apply the solution daily around the
cuticles, on the skin around the nail, on any natural nail not covered by the
acrylics as well as the underside of the natural nail.
Does TIPS Nail Conditioner help stop nail biting?
Although TIPS Nail Conditioner 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 habit.
What are the “other
ingredients” listed on the bottle of TIPS products?
term “other ingredients” refers to the exclusive ingredient we add to our
formulation, which allows for the penetration of the lipids directly into the
nails and cuticles, proven in independent studies by The California Skin
Research Institute. We sometimes call it our secret ingredient, as
no one else on the market today uses it in their nail care products, and it is
what makes our product unique and effective at treating, fortifying and
strengthening the nails.
