Nail Repair Saviours

Hi everyone! I'm very excited to share these 2 products with you today as they have injected life back into my ruined nails. I'll just give you a (very brief) history of my nails- for 20 years I used to bite them right down to the quick and no amount of nasty tasting nail biting treatment would deter me from nibbling away. However, in 2011 I literally woke up one day and decided that I was never going to bite my nails ever again and since then, I never have.
However, since I started my full time job 3 years ago, tapping away on the keyboard and hammering buttons on the telephone has done my nails no favours at all. My once strong, natural nails have suffered every nail ailment going from ridges to snapping to peeling and flaking (attractive, I know).
I have tried numerous nail treatments but until now I had failed to find one that really works. As a result, I had resorted to covering my horrific nails with acrylic tips which has further weakened my natural nails. Here is how I have finally restored my nails:

ORLY Calcium Shield- This has been a life saver for me and has significantly reduced nail peeling. I have to admit, I'm pretty impatient and I did expect instant results. However, I only started to notice a difference 3-4 weeks in. I applied 2 coats at the start of each week and then removed with non acetone remover and reapplied. It is also supposed to act as a base coat but I'm not sure I would recommend it for that as I found that the nail polish slipped off when I applied it over the top of this product.
CND Rescue RXX- This product contains Keratin and jojoba oil- the protein in Keratin bonds to strengthen your natural nail. For best results, CND recommend applying this to bare nails twice a day for 4 weeks for optimal results. I have followed this recommendation exactly and my nails have definitely grown and strengthened within the 4 weeks. It is a great all rounder that keeps your nails looking healthy.
Have you tried either of these products? What would you recommend to restore damaged nails?
