I found that my nails are too short for the little shield. I have a metal file I just hold under 1 or more nails to paint the tips. Works for me. I usually avoid chemicals and polishes. I am unsure about the ingredients, but I am so thrilled with having strong nails, I am considering their other products.
Follow up, February 29.
My nails did grow! I'm finally able to show off after a month of treatment! I had to increase the amount to every other day application and didn't irritate or dry my fingers. This stuff works gradually so you have to be patient.
Today I learned why, thanks to Lauren from MA (see her November 2012 review) -- too much Mavala ends up making your nails *too* hard, and brittle, and they can break. So I need to curb my enthusiasm, re-read the instructions, and I'll start again in a few weeks.
One other note: It is true that this product contains formaldehyde, that is why it works, but as long as this is the only product I am using that contains it, I'm not worried about it, you use so very little, it's just the tips of the nails every week or two (or less, as I said, I need to re-read the instructions).
Love this product and highly recommend it for weak nails.
