Available in Australia is Sally Hansen’s Hard As Nails Powerful Acrylic Gel. Said to make nails as hard as acrylic wraps in 60 seconds, this product instantly seals and hardens, providing powerful acrylic protection in one easy step. It contains a patented breakthrough formula that has been salon and dermatologist tested. The acrylic gel should be used for fragile, soft, torn, chipped or cracked nails that are in dire need of protection. The formula does not require mixing and leaves consumers with long lasting nail surfaces with a clear, smooth, shiny finish.
There are also premium nail care products on the market that can withstand the change of season. Chanel in France has launched three new shades of its Le Vernis Nail Colour collection. This range is includes long-lasting, chip-resistant nail polishes that not only offer beautiful color but also provide moisturization and strength for nails. Sold in department stores, the line is comprised of limited edition shades such as Black Satin, Splendeur and Pink Satin. Each variety is packaged in Chanel’s patented non-spill bottle with wiping action for easier application. With this product, nail protection and glamour go hand in hand.
Also under the Sally Hansen brand is Cuticle & Nail Refiner, further offering specialized care for cracked brittle nails and rough, dry cuticles. This polishing cream is formulated with shea butter, ceramides, diamond powder and natural pumice, which claims to gently exfoliate dry, flaky skin. It has been dermatologist and salon tested and reveals fresh, healthy looking cuticles and smooth nails. The micronized diamond powder, shea butter and natural pumice from an ultra-refined polishing cream are all used for exfoliation, while the botanical extracts and ceramides deeply hydrate to restore skin's supple texture. The company claims that there will be visible results following the initial 60-second application, ultimately leading to renewed, luminous cuticles and smooth and healthy nails and nail beds. For best results, this product should be used once a week.
