Wearing Nails Inc in St Martin's Lane [two coats] + Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Topcoat
Hey Beauty Lovers! I've been on a bit of a nail escapade in the past month or so, as you know my nails suddenly started breaking/splitting and so I was trying a couple of nail strengthening treatment products, which sort of made things worse... Ages ago I have read somewhere that the health of your nails depends on the health of your cuticles. And lets face it even if purely aesthetically, it doesn't matter how immaculate the nailpolish is applied if the cuticles are not in a good condition the manicure will just look awful!
When nothing else seems to work Sally Hansen counter is always the right place to turn to. So to get strong and healthy nails basically there are two things you need: a good base + a cuticle treatment. Of course make sure the quality of your nailpolish is good and a good topcoat provides an extra layer, which makes the nailpolish last longer and is less likely to chip, which is something to be avoided - every time a nailpolish chips there is a chance it will chip with your nail, making them more likely to split and get weaker!
If you check out the previous blogpost you will see a massive difference in how my cuticles looked before and after just one application of the Sally Hansen Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil. It has Wheat Germ, Apricot Kernel, Aloe & Panthenol, which intensely moisturises and conditions, preventing dry brittle nails. There is nothing better than having neat and nourished looking cuticles!
In the picture above I am also wearing the Sally Hansen Advanced Hard as Nails, which is a strengthening base-coat that you need to apply 2-3 times before applying a nailpolish. I find two coats are more than enough as it really does harden the nails, it has Nylon and Retinol in it that also helps to smooth the ridges. I used to use this base-coat ages ago and it really does work so it's already tested and approved! If you have troubles with your nails, definitely give these a go!
