My poor little nails have been through the mill the last few weeks, they got completely forgot about last couple of weeks and showed some serious signs of neglect. I was keeping them lovely and painted and pretty but underneath they were breaking and flaking. Cuticles had become dry and cracked some them even becoming sore. I know I should be scolded on the backs of my hands!
So last week I became a women on a mission to get back to normality, I whipped back out the hand cream and cuticle oil , and put away the nail varnish for the time being. Applying the hand cream every chance I get and the cuticle oil just before bed and in the morning.
As you can see some of the cuticles are still healing but their ten times better then what they were. Now where I need the help is my actual nails. As you can see their not very long actually their super short. They just keep breaking and are not getting any longer, the flakiness has stopped though. So suggestions are needed for something that's going to make them stronger and stop all this breaking so I can have purdy nails for summer time. I will try anything! And of course I will keep you updated on how I get on!
get a nail strengthener and you need to take cuticle oil off with cuticle remover because the oil although good for cuticles eats away at the nails!!! i can help you for a change!!! ;)ReplyDelete
really it doesnt say that on either bottle??Delete
I personally haven't tried this, but have been meaning to because my nails have become so brittle and dry lately! It's a gelatin based nail strengthener which is a lot more natural than the chemical based strengtheners.(although not vegan friendly if that is what you are looking for) I found one link about a "how-to" in case you are interested! If you try it, I would LOVE a review too!! :DReplyDelete
interesting! wouldnt be too expensive either hmmmDelete
Mine were exactly the same. I trialled and error-ed with a lot of products but the only products that worked was Rimmel Nail Rescue. It cost no more than about £5 and it worked better for me than Sally Hanson.ReplyDelete
I put it on, wait for it to dry, add another coat (it's quite thin) then add my polish over the top. Then I repeat this any time I change colours. They grow quite quickly now and feel much stronger. It took about 2 weeks before I noticed how well it was working.
I hope this helps!
