Hey, Hey, Hey!! Happy New Year.
While I was laid up I was getting alot of tweeting in with my left hand (: and mentioned that my nails are in such a HORRIBLE state since Winter rolled about - the breaking - discolouration - urgh it was getting too much for me. Yinka of Vex in the City mentioned Dr LeWinn ( which I have on standby ) while Kashual of BeautyFulfilled recommended Nailtiques. I was then offered to try it out.
OPI Nail Envy helped me on the track last year when I started to grow my nails. It didn't hold up for me the 3rd time round - I tried Nail Tek II :Intensive Therapy - no bueno.
Fab Fingertips gave me a good tip - WATER! Now during our time exchanging tweets I realised, I had fallen back on my water consumption.
Once my nails are to my satisfaction I will move onto Formula 1! YET in the meantime as I put that at the back of the nail polish drawer...there are two others that are needed in the routine.
Cuticles are important and need care too. This product has a few uses such as combating dry, flaking toenails and also can be used as a drying agent for wet polish. Used several times a week on the nails and cuticles should help the dry, brittle or flaking nails.
I love this cuticle care oil. The rollerball application makes it precise on the cuticle to just roll it along, no excess - no wasting. Perfect!
After soaking my nails in a homemade nail soak I dry and clean my nails and apply the cuticle care oil before starting my routine over for the week.
Each Sunday -;
- I will do a hand & nail soak
- Pat my hand and nails dry and add AHAVA Intensive Hydration Mask while wrapped in a towel (if you got hand warmers or hand gloves that'll be perfect) I'll leave it on for 5-10minutes.
- Applying the Cuticle Care Oil - massaging in with my finger tips.
- Using Formula 2 I apply on all nails
- While during the week every other day apply the Oil Therapy
Once I'm happy I'll be using the Nailtiques nail polishes alongside the routine :
Maui & Monte Carlo.
During these cold months how do you keep your nails healthy and strong ?
