I go through little phases with my nails; I’m either going mad for bright and colourful polishes or keeping them strong, healthy and neutral. I’m currently in the latter phase, and am focussing on strengthening and protecting my nails (I also wouldn’t complain if they grew a bit, too!)
I decided to give a new strengthening product a whirl – the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails strengthener (with Nylon)!
Now, I have to admit that my weak nails are a bit of a running joke amongst my family – for every physical ailment I suffer, the excuse that is offered up is, “it’s because you’re a vegetarian!” – there is, of course, no truth in this – it makes me more determined to prove them wrong with lovely, strong, healthy nails!
I was pleasantly surprised with how well this worked – I applied two coats around 4 days ago and my nails are still looking lovely. They haven’t chipped, broken or peeled at all, which can only be a bonus!
My nails might look quite ‘standard’ (apart from the horrible slightly yellow stains that I got from wearing green nail polish without a base coat…) but they’re actually pretty long for me. I’m happily going to carry on using this product, and hope that it continues to do the trick! Until, of course, my love for all-things-colourful re-ignites…
