How Do I Solve The Issue?
Firstly, we recommend seeing your doctor to check if you do have any nutritional deficiencies, especially if you have horizontal ridges, as they can indicate an underlying condition. If you have got a vitamin deficiency, this should be easily solved with the right supplement program. We also recommend eating a varied balanced diet filled with leafy greens, protein, and essential fatty acids. Nails are composed of Keratin (a protein), so it’s well worth feeding them the right nutrients.
It's Treatment Time
Looking for quick results? Try out our Infinite Shine Treatments, designed by experts to improve your nail issues. Our Infinite Shine Ridge Filler Treatment contains natural silk to smooth nails for an even lacquer application.
Whether you’re giving yourself a manicure or in the salon, lightly buff the nail and apply 2 coats of base coat. If nail ridges give you trouble, we recommend trying our Infinite Shine Ridge Filler Treatment instead of your regular Nail Lacquer Base Coat to mask the ridges and then proceed with your mani or pedi as usual.
If you have Onychorrhexis this can be remedied with extra moisturizer and treatment base coats. We recommend a combination of Nail Envy, Infinite Shine Ridge Filler, and Natural Nail Strengthener.
