A keratin treatment can work wonders on damaged strands, and as it turns out, on nails in need of some TLC as well. Though we’ve tried time and time again to nurse our nails back to health after one too many gel manis, CND’s RescueRXx Daily Keratin Treatment could be the answer to our prayers. Thanks to the ample amount of the protein in its formula, the strengthener acts in a similar fashion as the in-salon treatment for your strands—the keratin actually bonds to the natural keratin proteins in your nails to fortify weak areas, and bring back moisture lost to LED lights and acetone. Added ingredients of jojoba and sweet almond oils also pack major conditioning benefits for your nails and skin.

To make the most of the treatment, sweep the nourishing liquid onto your bare digits twice a day, then massage it into your nails and cuticles and let them drink in the benefits. After one week, the overall condition of your nails should drastically improve—meaning you can wave goodbye to buffing out gel damage while uttering Lady Macbeth’s “out damned spot” mantra—with full results and an end to all the splitting and peeling in four weeks. The CND RescueRXx Daily Keratin Treatment is available now for $20 at salons nationwide, head over to cnd.com to find an outpost near you!
