“Prevent dry, hard nails from splitting with the nourishing Protein Formula For Nails Formula 3 - I Hydrate.” - Hannah, Escentual Beauty Team.


Why You’ll Love Protein Formula Formula 3:

  • Nail treatment for brittle nails that break.
  • Hydrates dry nails so they’re strong and healthy.
  • Features a breathable clear polish formula.
  • An ideal vegan alternative to the discontinued Nailtiques Formula 3.


What You Need To Know:

As we age, our nails can become hard and start to split due to a lack of moisture - but that’s where Protein Formula comes in. Harnessing the power of plant-based keratin proteins, Formula 3 is designed to nourish nails that are dry and prone to snapping. Probiotics prevent future damage whilst hydrating glycerin provides a long-term boost of moisture to leave your nails looking brighter. Antioxidant panthenol combined with AHAs hydrate your nails but also encourage cell turnover, so your nails are renewed so they become soft (but not too soft) and hydrated. Healthy nails are fairly flexible, so hexanol works to increase nail flexibility to prevent breakage.


Why It’s Escentual:

Under-nourished nails can often cause pain by splitting deep into the nail bed or breaking and leaving your nails far too short. Formula 3 gets to work fast to add some much-needed hydration, leaving your nails flexible and unlikely to break and split with regular use.

If you’ve previously loved Nailtiques, you’ll love Formula 3 - I Hydrate. Protein Formula is a rebrand of Nailtiques and their updated Formula 3 features the same rich hydrating proteins as the original Nailtiques version but in a cool new formula that’s both cruelty-free and vegan, so you can continue your healthy nail journey with this animal-friendly alternative. Formula 3 leaves a slightly glossy finish, so even without polish (you should leave your nails polish-free when using Formula 3), your nails look neat.

Depending on how brittle your nails are, you’ll need to use Formula 3 for different lengths of time. Some will only need one week of treatment before moving to Formula 1 - I Maintain, but the average use for Formula 3 is one month. It’s important that you take off the layers of Formula 3 every week and test your nail strength - you want nails that feel strong but still have a natural bend, so don’t use Formula 3 for too long as it might make your nails too soft and this isn’t healthy either.


The Best Way To Use It:

Apply a coat of Formula 3 to your nails and do not paint polish on top. Re-apply Formula 3 every other day for one week and then remove with acetone-free remover after 7 days. Test your nail strength - they should feel softer and have a bend, but still have a strong structure that doesn’t peel. Continue applying every other day until your nails are softer and healthy, making sure to remove the formula and test your nail strength every week. Once your nails are healthy, use Formula 1 - I Maintain for constant nourishment.

Protein Formula For Nails Formula 3 - I Hydrate 15ml is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I've been looking for for my toenails. I bought this recently and already super happy with the results. My nails were dry and brittle, this has been working great so far! Love that it doesn't go off quickly and can come back to it again if I need to 'hydrate' again.
