Brittle Nails No More | Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System

Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System

I've been on the lookout for a nail treatment to polish and hydrate my nails for a while now, and having dealt with brittle, peeling nails for many years, a truly effective one has been hard to come by. In the last year, my nail health has significantly improved, and I believe it might be because I cut back on painting my nails, doing so only very rarely for special occasions. I've recently also been using the Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System* to prime, polish and moisturize my nails and have been seeing great results after just a few weeks of use. The line was created by Dr. Dana Stern, a world renown dermatologist who is an expert in the treatment of nail disorders. All ingredients used are high quality and free of harmful chemicals to nourish and restore your nails without compromising your health, with all products being 5-free, vegan and cruelty-free.

Dr. Dana Glycolic Prep for Nails

Step 1 in the treatment is the Dr. Dana Glycolic Prep For Nails. Now I'm sure you have heard of glycolic acid being used in skincare (such as in.... glycolic peels!), and the benefit of applying it to your nails is that it will help remove nail surface irregularities - think of it as a surface exfoliator for your nails! On top of glycolic acid, this gel also contains dandelion extract which is high in antioxidants, as well as aloe vera, apple fruit extract and grapefruit peel oil, just to name a few. Simply brush a thin layer all over your nails and wait a few minutes before moving on to the next step.

Dr. Dana Perfect Grit Priming Wand

Step 2, the Dr. Dana Perfect Grit Priming Wand, is actually 3 steps in one: buff, prime and shine. Use side 01 to even out your nail surface by gently stroking your nails until a powdery layer appears. Follow up with side 02 to prime your nails and give them a smooth finish, again doing so in a few strokes. Finally, use side 03 by pressing a bit more firmly on the wand to provide your nails with an instant lustrous shine.

Dr. Dana Deep Hydrating Formula

The final step in the system is the Dr. Dana Deep Hydrating Formula - a 'joil', aka a hybrid between a gel and an oil. Also housed in a twist pen and made with a botanical blend of essential oils and other plant extracts such as apricot kernel oil, coconut oil, grapefruit peel oil and rosemary leaf extract, this nail and cuticle treatment strengthens and hydrates your nails after being quickly absorbed. Not only that, but it smells amazing too!

The Dr. Dana Lips & Tips* is a fun product they have recently come out with - as you may be guessing, one end contains the Deep Hydrating Formula (step 3 in the Nail Renewal System mentioned above) and the other end contains a tinted lip gloss, which you can choose from either Pink Poppy or Nude Kava. Both provide a sheer wash of colour and subtle shine without feeling sticky. A great product on the go, as we often touch up or apply lip products when we are out and about but tend to neglect moisturizing our nails.

The Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System is a leave-on treatment that takes about 10 minutes to complete for all 10 nails and can be done once a week to maintain your nail health. Use it on its own on clean, dry nails, or follow up with you regular manicure the following day (at least 24 hours later) to give the treatment time to work!

Dr. Dana products can be purchased online directly from their website or on QVC.

  6. This looks good! I have the worst nails. They grow fast but are really brittle. I also have a hard time when my nails get too long. I never learned how to type with longer nails and I have to type all day. I may have to try this!

  7. Glad you finally found a nail treatment. I have very strong nails and I find that if I treat my cuticles regularly and keep them polished with gel, they stay strong and healthy.

  11. I would love to try this. The older I have gotten, I had suddenly found my nails to be very brittle, and they break and snag on stuff all the time. I also like that the product is cruelty free. Very nice!

  12. Brittle nails have not really been an issue with me. That is one thing that I have been lucky with. But, I do occasionally break one, so this would be great to have anyway.

  40. I didn't know a few months ago that I had low iron. Needless to say, I discovered it on a routine screening. I went to the doctor and she discovered a few more problems. I should have seen the signs because my nails were thin and brittle.

  54. I really need this! It's my own fault for chewing my nails for so many years but now that they are growing in they need a little help. The fact that I wash my hands too much is probably a culprit too.
