Perhaps a nail portion has cracked off or a thickened, oddly shaped or even fungal nail needs to be reshaped into one that is pleasing to the eye. If so, Wilde Pedique nail reconstruction is the answer. Wilde Pedique is a polymer resin that is applied and curated under UVA light. A new nail is constructed of numerous layers depending on the shape of the original nail.

The Wilde Pedique gel, once applied and cured, will essentially look like and cut like a regular toe nail.
Can you tell me more about Wilde Pedique?
It is an extremely elastic UV gel which sets when it is exposed to UV-A light. Wild Pedique was developed specifically for corrective and restorative toenail treatments. The gel resin has the ability to bond to a surface, add strength and harden with a glossy finish, whilst at the same time, adapting to the movements of the toe due to its flexibility. The results can even be achieved on callus layers of the skin; thus, providing an excellent solution where the toenail is missing or damaged, or perhaps where the nail has been surgically removed and there is unsightly regrowth. This also makes it possible to conceal ridges and deformations and hide discolouration (eg fungal nail).
- No Odour
- No Discolouration – once an acrylester resin (primary component of the gel) has been cured for about 2 minutes under a UV-A light, the material is completely cured and will not change
- No Primer/Chemical Activator – we do not use any aggressive acidic primers which can damage the natural nail plate
- No Damage to the Natural Nail – as the gel cures to a flexible surface, it will not damage the natural nail plate
- Non-Porous – neither moisture or air can penetrate the material and therefore, fungal nails can be covered with the gels, thus helping to prevent further spread or development of the infection
