Nail Care

After a long period of wearing acrylic nails in High School,I finally gave up on them and opted out for a “natural” look. Sally Hansen has one of the best drugstore nail care products. Some of my favorites include Nail Shine Miracle, which I use as a Top Coat, Miracle nail thickener and nailgrowth miracle treatment. Last two I like to use especially during winter time, when, for some strange reason my nails just keep breaking (during summer my nails are a lot stronger and do not break as easily). I also do not like to cut my cuticles, unless really necessary, I usually just push them away. I use my Argan Oil every night and rub it into my cuticles, to maintain them. Sally Hansen’s cuticle cream is also great to use when cuticles need “special treatment”.

During winter time my hands get EXTREMELY dry (for some reason I can never get used to wearing gloves). Aveeno’s intense moisture skin relief hand cream is really thick and good as a “night” treatment. Miracle Hand Repair, on the other hand, I use throughout the day and it really brings relief to my skin (I put it on after I wash the dishes, take a shower, wash my hands, etc).

One of my favorite nail polishes as of lately is Dior Vernise Nude Charnelle. At $23.00 it’s a little pricey, but it’s a perfect nude and applies really well.

    Try Quimica Allemana Nail Hardener its the best one that I have used so far. It might cause some burning until your nails get stronger but not all people experience the burning. At least I did experience the burning, now I have just taken off the gel color nails off and I’m starting to grow my own nails, but my nails arw too weak for this yet.

    • Thanks! I will give it a try, I see it has some great reviews on amazon. I tried so many different treatments on my poor nails, one more can’t hurt:)
