My Nail Journey
When I started this blog my nails were peeling, very short, yellow, and my cuticles were rough. Here's a reminder of where I starters at.
I'm still working on my cuticles but the yellow is growing out (I bought some stuff for that but haven't had a chance to use it yet). My nails are actually growing out for the first time ever! I'm currently seeing how long I can grow out my ring finger. It tends to be the strongest nail. Keep reading for my products ;)
Left Hand - Right Hand
Nailtiques has a habit of peeling off when I have 3+ layers over it but works really well to stop peeling nails. When Nail Tek peels it takes some of the nail with it and I noticed peeling on my left hand when it stopped on my right hand. To further my test I switched hands and then my right nails started to peel with Nail Tek over them. So overall I like Nailtiques better. These are roughly the same price at Ulta, around $10-12.
I haven't had a chance to use this over the past few weeks as I've been extremely busy but I like it. I don't know if I was using it correctly though. I noticed some of the pics online of applying it and that's not how I did it! :) I will start using this again soon, and hopefully the right way, but I won't be trimming my cuticles this time to see how it goes. Since I stopped using it my cuticles are getting harder, not just at the top of my nail but along the sides as well. $5
I got this to help my cuticles my noticed my nails started growing faster too! I apply this in between painting my nails. I haven't been diligent about this lately. $20 (Yikes!)
I've used this before but purchased it so long ago that I threw it away and bought a new one. I don't really notice it's affects but the other day I had applied it to my left hand but didn't have a chance to apply it to my right hand. About 20min or so later I looked down at my nails and noticed that my left cuticles were much happier than my right! I try to apply this once a day but often forget. $6
That's it for now- I'll have another post about the yellowing product once I get a chance to use it.
