Challenge Revisited : Nails

Challenges that are set are meant to be well on-going. Your suppose to get into the routine and carry on, correct? Okay well my nail growth was going fantastic up until possibly late August.

What happened? Well I'm not 100% sure a lot of splits and breakage making it impossible to do things because I'm constantly thinking about my nails and I've never been one of those 'girlie girls' * shock horror * running a beauty blog but it stops me doing the things I like to do. Dont' get me wrong I absolutely LOVE having long nails it feels feminine and it such a great back scratcher { on myself }

Thinking back on it where did I go wrong? I honestly think that when I got lazy and didn't purchase another month load of vitamins my nails suffered. I did everything the same but that. So...

Superdrug A-Z Vitamins, OPI Original Nail Envy, CND Solar Oil, No7 Enriched Hand and Nail Treatment & Tweezerman Glass Nail File 

These are my staple products for getting my nails back. The vitamins are important, I seem to forget that what we put INTO our bodies also effects the outside. Hopefully with the upcoming autumn & winter months my hands and nails will be prepared. 

Do you find it hard to keep your nails long and strong?
Do you suffer from brittle nails too?


  1. When mine grow long they break :( I usually have to keep em short.

  2. I used to be a terrible nail biter till I was about 19. When they did grow they were weak and little layers used to peel off. I use Sally Hansen Diamond Strength nail hardener, it's great, and drinking lots of water made a difference.

  3. My nails tend to be brittle and break easily so for that very reason I keep them short, barely above the nail tip. It is easier to carry out my daily activities with my nails short and my polish stays on longer which is always a plus. Oh and I love darker colors on shorter nails! :)

  4. I absolutely HATE to keep my nails long because the polish seems to chip sooooo much more quicker than on short nails! Drives me totally crazy LOL

  5. Ladies I know what you mean.... I notice that my nail polish does last longer with shorter nails - no matter what I do.

  6. If you can get hold of it, try the avon liquid silk wrap (maybe on ebay). or have silk wraps done to keep them protected. I keep mine painted all of the time now and have been using the maybelline nail strengthener with calcium (About £4.99 in a squarish bottle) as a base coat. good luck
