The Ultimate Way to Strengthen Your Nails

Yaaaaas I am back to blogging and I couldn't be more excited! The past 2 months have been so stressful with barely any spare time, so it's a relief to say I can now blog again regularly. Before getting into this post, I just quickly want to say thank you to all of you who have stuck with me through this journey so far, and understood that I had to take a break! There is going to be a post every Sunday minimum. So yea, let's crack on...

A little bit of background about my nails first so you can really see how this has worked. I used to bite my nails for absolute years from a very young age. I have no idea why, it's just something I used to do, and so did a lot of people I guess. Of course over time my nails got weaker and even if I tried to grow my nails, they would break straight away, so I would just carry on biting them. So yea they were pretty terrible.

I then reached the age of wanting nice nails but I still couldn't stop. I legit tried everything like nail varnish that tasted disgusting, and I would still do it (gross I know). Anyway, so I decided to get acrylics like every 3 weeks for about 3 years or so. Surprisingly, this actually made me stop biting my nails. So when I got the acrylics taken off to give my nails a break, I wouldn't bite them but they were still in a terrible condition. They would literally peel in half. Obviously the acrylics didn't help my nails.

After deciding I wanted to stop getting acrylics and trying so many strengthening products, my friend at work recommended me Nailtiques Formula 2. Oh my did it change the game. I used this for about a month and a half and my nails actually grew, they stopped peeling, stopped breaking easily and they are just overall strong.

How to Use Nailtiques and Maintain Your Nails
At first, put one layer on your nails everyday until all the coats on your nails are ready to come off. Then take the nail varnish off with strengthening remover and repeat. I am hoping that makes sense I am not the best at explaining things! Repeat until you are happy with the strength of your nails.

Once you're happy and you want to start wearing nail varnish, it is important to still take care of your nails or they will go back to the way they were. I apply one layer of the Nailtiques Formula 2, then I apply two coats of the coloured Sally Hensen Miracle Gel nail varnish, then one layer of the Sally Hensen Miracle Gel top coat (black bottle). This is the only nail varnish I have tried so far that doesn't ruin my nails again and one that doesn't chip for a reasonable amount of time.

Every so often I will give my nails a break by just applying Nailtiques everyday just to make sure. I guess you could say I'm paranoid about my nails going back to the way they used to be!

That is it really. Nothing fancy and nothing too overpriced. It's just something that really worked for me so I hope it works for you too! I have linked the products down below:
