Nail Tek Foudation III

Nail Tek Foudation III

I bought this nail polish foundation hoping it would solve my splitting nails problem and I've been using it for 2 weeks niw and I must say I returned to painting my nails! I don't see any signs of damage which other nail products caused to my nails! Even if it turns out one day that this doesn't work as I hope it should, there will always be one thing that will make me like this product more than others - it dries out matte and thanks to this nail polish sticks perfectly and applies evenly (no effect of sliding along the nail).

EDIT: Final thoughts after using the foundation for over two months:
1. I still love the matte finish, helps to distribute the polish much more evenly than any glossy base coat
2. Didn't make my nails any stronger. They split just as they did before whenever I used nail polish. I suppose they're allergic to nail polish.
3. Became clumpy and real pain to distribute
4. About 1/4 bottle is left and I find it relly hard to get the thing out of the bottle, you need to screw the cap back each time you want to paint a nail. I know this always happens when you're running out of a nail product, but it's much easier to pick a more liquidy product than the one with quite thick consistency. I suppose I'll just dump it cause I find this digging for product infuriating.
All in all I think I'll look for another base coat with matte finish.

Disclaimer: I bought the product myself for my personal use and I am not affiliated with any company. I am not paid to do this review and everything I said here is my genuine opinion.


  1. I've been using Nail Tek stuff for years now, and I'm glad to admit they still work. My fav is Intensive Therapy II along with Foundation II. Use them in combination with the old classic, Mavala Scientifique. But I got bored with using the same products for so long so I ordered Herome nail strengthener after reading so many rave reviews :)

  2. Hi Ola, I've read about Herome, never tried it,though. Let me know what you think after you've tested it.
