Rescue Repair System

The Simple Solution for Sucky Nails!

The Rescue Repair System uses two products to treat damaged nails and instantly improve their appearance. While the Rescue Serum repairs damage, the Repair Base seals in the serum’s treatment. Wear this system on its own or underneath a manicure. 

The Products

Step 1 of Rescue Repair System

A unique serum that mimics the natural nail’s hydration
mechanism to repair damaged keratin. It improves nail
strength and flexibility as it is worn as a cushion underneath
the Repair Base.

  • Penetrates top layer of keratin and hydrates nail plate
  • Acts as micronized synthetic version of skin’s sebum
  • Physical barrier that conditions and treats cuticles
  • Increases nail’s natural sebum content

Step 2 of Rescue Repair System

A groundbreaking formula that adheres to the nail plate
and locks the Rescue Serum into the nail’s keratin layers.
Invisible fillers strengthen the nail and smooth out uneven
ridges, flaking and separation.

  • Seals Rescue Serum into the nail plate
  • Fills ridges to strengthen and create smooth base
  • Optical diffusers brighten appearance
  • BIG 10 FREE breathable formula
A Patented Breakthrough

After years in the lab we finally did it! The first ever micronized nail treatment for strong, healthy-looking nails is made from natural oils, fibers & fillers, and ph conditioners to be rubbed directly into the nails and sealed with a clear nail polish. It mimics the nail’s natural sebum to reinforce the strength and flexibility of the nail’s keratin fibers, so you can lock in the benefits up until your next manicure change. See and feel the difference in your nails with increased polish wear. 

So, if you need a solution for nails that are damaged, breaking, peeling, or need to recover after years of gels or acrylics, consider yourself lucky! The Naked Manicure Rescue + Repair will stop your nails from being sucky! 

Nails can suck for many reasons. Sometimes it’s damage from constant application, scraping and removal of gels or acrylics, or sometimes it’s because your environment, activities and climate can destroy the keratin that gives your nails their strength and flexibility. 

No matter the reason, we can fix it and instantly improve the appearance and condition of your nails. Best of all, this PATENTED system makes it simple. 

How It Works

Strong Bonds

Under a microscope, your nails are a network of interlocking layers of keratin. Healthy-looking nails have tighter, more symmetric layers. This creates a stronger, more flexible nail and
substantially increases polish wear.

Constantly scraping, drilling and soaking the nails in acetone damages these keratin layers and bonds. Excessive dryness or moisture can also effect the condition of these layers. Damaged keratin takes the form of ridges, dents, brittleness and peeling which significantly reduces the duration of polish wear and bonding.

Rescue Serum fills in the peaks and valleys between the keratin layers, strengthens the bonds and improves the condition of the nail. By sealing in the Rescue Serum with a layer of Repair Base, you seal in the treatment and strengthening benefits for as long as the Repair Base is on your nails. This new, improved surface dramatically extends polish wear and improves appearance.

Your nails will immediately look better and strengthen over time as you keep using the system.

How To Use

The Foundation for Everything

Don’t let damaged nails ruin your manicure. Prep your nail using Rescue & Repair to treat existing damage and extend the wear-time of your polish. When starting out, apply once a week for 3 weeks to allow the Rescue Serum to deeply condition the nail plate.

1. Prep the Nail

Use the provided nail file to shape nails and smooth any free -edge separation. File using an upward motion from underneath the nail to remove any residue, and downward to seal. Make sure to remove any stray dust. Clean nail beds with Remove+. This is the only prep needed.

  • Do NOT dehydrate or score the nail before application

2. Rescue Serum

Apply a pea-sized amount of the Rescue Serum to one
fingertip; use half the amount for each hand. Distribute
evenly among fingernails and massage in until absorbed.
Rub to dry, do not wash off.

  • Ensure the Rescue Serum is thoroughly absorbed into the nail plate by using horizontal and vertical movements, from side to side and cuticle to free-edge. Rub to dry.

3. Repair Base

Apply a thin coat of the Repair Base directly on
top of the Rescue Serum. Be careful to avoid the
cuticle, sidewall, upper corners of free edge, or the
skin. Wrap the tip of your free-edge. Clean up with
an orangewood stick if needed.

  • Apply Repair Base as you would a regular basecoat.

Q: How long before I see results?

Q: What can I apply over Rescue+ Repair?


You can see an improved appearance in the nail after the first application because of the optical diffusers in the Repair Base. The actual results of the treatment will appear after extended use of the Rescue Serum and Repair Base.


If Au Naturale is not your thing, you can apply your favorite Zoya Nail Polish or Naked Manicure Perfector followed by a coat of Ultra Glossy Seal Topcoat. We have not tested Rescue + Repair with non-Zoya products.

Q: How long will Rescue + Repair last?

Q: Can I apply gel polish over Rescue + Repair?


Rescue + Repair will last up until your next manicure with removal. As the condition of your nail improves, the treatment will last longer and longer. We recommend you reapply the Rescue Serum and Repair Base before every fresh manicure.


No. We recommend only Zoya Nail Polish or Naked Manicure Perfectors. If you want a gel-like finish, you may use Gelie-Cure. Using anything else may damage your nail plate upon removal.

Q: Can I use it daily?

Q: Do I have to use the Rescue Serum under the Repair Base?


Yes. Keep in mind the serum is only locked in place when the Repair Base is applied on top. However, rubbing the Rescue Serum over the nails daily can help condition the cuticle area.


If you want the benefits of treatment, the Rescue Serum must be used under the Repair Base. The Repair Base will lock in this treatment for the duration of your manicure. Without the Rescue Serum, the Repair Base acts as a normal base coat.

Q: How do I clean the nail before applying Rescue + Repair?

Q: Is Rescue + Repair 10-Free like all other ZOYA products?


Use Zoya Remove+ and a piece of cotton or wipe to clean the nail surface.


The Rescue Serum and Repair Base is 10 free.
