Nail rescue

Photobucket

Nails are always something I've struggled with, for the majority of my life I've bitten, chewed, and basically just neglected my nails! I've gone through phases where I won't bite them for 10 month and for maybe a week or two, I'll have nice long nails! Then one by one they'll all start to snap off because they're so weak. When my nails are long, I literally panic when I have no nail varnish or even a top coat on them, as I've been lucky for them to reach this length without them snapping, and it's usually just the layers and layers of top coat holding them together! I don't know if its the years of biting them that's made them so weak, but I know my mam struggles with brittle nails aswell, even though she doesn't bite them!

I've tried a few things out, one of them being that Sally Hanson diamond strength stuff, it made my nails feel a little less soft, but it peeled off really easily and underneath my nails were just as bad, plus, I think it was like £7 or something, and I'd much rather buy a nice expensive polish than nail care! I came across this Rimmel 14 day nail treatment the other day in the Chemist. It was under £5 and claims to give you "Longer, stronger, harder, and more resilient nails in 2 weeks", whilst also reducing chipping and splitting. I like how it gives you 14 days to see a difference, I don't like how some products promise you something and you never know when you're supposed to start seeing changes.

I'm on day 3 of using Rimmel nail rescue now, and I think it will be quite nice to keep you updated on how it helps my nails If like me, you struggle with everything I've mentioned! I don't think my nails will ever be the strongest in the world, but I think it will be good for them to receive some sort of treatment, instead of me just being fed up with them and neglecting them.

  2. Massaging cuticle oil (or just massaging!) into my nails helps mine get stronger xx

  3. I'm exactly the same, I'm forever longing for longer, healthy nails but when they get so close they snap off or I bite them. This sounds likes a good purchase though, I'll be looking forward to seeing how you get on over all :)

  4. How does it work? Do you put it on daily? Do you wipe off the previous days coating?

  5. i think this has caused the tips of my nails to become detached to my nail bed.... i don't know but i've used this for just over 2 months now but this past 2 weeks or so, my nails have started to get detached... only a little though maybe 1-2mm... i don't keep my nails long as well... i read that certain nail hardeners can cause this problem and this product is the only one i've using... :S

  6. Also, it could only require a little over three years
    to complete. Indeed, the best schools produce the best physical therapists in
    the country, so it is every aspiring therapist. Physical therapist or
    physiotherapist is a really captivating career in
    the field of medicine.
