Thin, soft nails, like fine, fragile hair, tend to break, peel and split and are usually not strong enough to grow long. They need the nail equivalent of an athlete's nutrition programme to build them up and improve their strength.
Active Build Trio is a 3-step treatment programme developed for very soft and frail nails. Its CLEANSE, TREAT, PROTECT approach is the nail equivalent of the effective CLEANSE, TONE, MOISTURISE skincare programme
How do I know if my nails need Active-Build?
The nail is thin, weak, soft and fragile. It bends and splits easily. It may peel in thin layers. It has no 'body' and can't withstand stresses and strains.

STEP 1 CLEANSE: Apply Active-Build Remover to a cotton pad. Press on the nail for 3 or 4 seconds then gently pull forward from cuticle to tip to remove polish, Shield or impurities.
STEP 2 TREAT: Apply a little Serum onto nails and massage into the nail and cuticle area until fully absorbed.
STEP 3 PROTECT: As soon as the Serum is fully dry, apply the Shield to seal in the Serum.
The Shield can be used as a treatment on its own - apply 2 coats and allow to dry.
As a Treatment Base Coat below poish - apply 1 thin coat.
As a protective extra layer that also helps lock-in the Serum.
Repeat the above process every 4 days or when changing polish.
As part of your daily routine - before bed, apply a small amount of serum to the cuticle and massage into the nail.
CLEANSE again at the end of the treatment programme to remove the Active-Build Shield and any nail polish.
Repeat the programme for best results.
