Everyone is always asking me if my nails are real. And the answer is “Yes. As a matter of fact they are!” And I will share my secret to growing pretty nails with you. Back in the 1980′s I do admit to having super long acrylic talons. And I loved them. I still can appreciate a gorgeous set of super long claws. Perfectly curved and super shiny. There is just something about them. For example when Gwen Stefani had hers, I was in love. I did think long and hard about getting my tips put back on but there is no way I would have been able to do people’s eyebrows or Brazilians with them. OUCH!
So… I had to force myself to be practical.
Which brings me back to the whole point of this post. I have been using Nail Tek for years. I was not naturally blessed with super strong nails. Mine were always peeling and breaking. I was never able to grow them at all. Hence my acrylic phase in high school. Which by the way; made my nails worse!
Nail Tek is the best ever nail hardener. Once I started using it in my 20′s I have never even thought about using any other brand. They have a bunch of different formulas. I use Number II for soft peeling nails. This just happens to work best for me. But choose yours based on your own individual nail problem.
The genius of this is it is not expensive at all. Its about 8 bucks a bottle! Where can you go wrong with that?
You apply it as your base coat. Two coats of your favorite color polish. Then another coat of Nail Tek.
Then every day you apply one coat of Nail Tek right over your polish! I do mine at night right before bed. I keep it on my nightstand so I don’t forget.
Now I know what you’re going to say…
That’s so much work, so much upkeep, blah blah blah….
Get over it!
It’s not. Who said being beautiful was easy? If it was easy, everyone would look like Giselle or Naomi.
This is not hard. I promise you it dries super quick. And reapplying a coat of Nail Tek over your colored polish every day lengthens the life of your manicure. It protects it from chipping so easily.
Now how’s that for smart?
All this and brains too. Who knew???
Now get out there and grow some pretty nails.
