Today I would like to share with you my experience using the Nail Renewal System from Dr. Dana. The NRS is a three-steps treatment that restore your dry, damage and brittle nails and only needed to be used once a week.
Meet Dr. Dana

Step 01: Glycolic Prep Pen
Directions: Twist the bottom of pen until a droplet appears on the applicator tip. Brush a thin, even coat onto clean, dry, unpolished nails. One pen twist treats five nails. Use once weekly. Provides 90 days of treatment.
I applied a thin coat over my nails right after removing the nail polish I was wearing. This works by exfoliating the nails and removing nail surface irregularities.
Step 02: Perfect Grit Priming Wand
Directions: Start with Side 1 and sweep over nails two to five times. A powdery overlay will appear indicating it’s time for Side 2. Using Side 2, sweep over nails two to five times. Finish with Side 3, pressing more firmly and sweeping back and forth until nails achieve a lustrous, chip-free shine.
Step 03: Deep Hydrating Pen
Directions: Twist the bottom of the pen until the applicator tip is saturated. Brush generously onto nails, cuticles and surrounding skin. Use once a week, or more, if nails are prone to peeling. Provides 90 days of treatment when used weekly (less if used more frequently).
This has an oily gel consistency but not greasy. It has a very subtle citrusy smell. I applied as indicated onto my nails and cuticles.
What I most like about the System is that is free of harmful chemicals, it's portable and easy to apply.
I have only used the system twice since I got it (once a week). I have brittle nails and recently I've been noticing that my nails are a bit more flexible. I will be continuing to use the system for at least two months and I'll come back with an update.
