Personally, I love having long natural looking nails. I use to get my nails done for years at the salon. I would get the traditional gel manicure with French tips. After, three weeks I would go back to the salon for a refill. I don’t remember when but after a while I started to feel like I was wasting a lot of my time and money. With that said, I began to do my nails at home once a week.
How to get Healthy Strong Nails
At first, my nails were very brittle and weak from getting the gel manicure. It took about three months for me to grow my nails out. After growing my nails out and maintaining them at a decent length where they did not break. I began to do the nail care routine that I am about to share with you. I’ve been doing this routine for over three years now. It has worked for me and I hope that it can be helpful to you.
Nail Care Routine
I start by washing my hands and make sure that there isn’t any dirt underneath my nails. Then I use nail polish remover to remove the clear coat that I have on my nails. Then I put Sally Hansen Cuticle Remover on my nail beds. I rub it in and let it sit for about a minute or two. Then I use a Cuticle Pusher and push back my cuticles. Next, I use a Cuticle Trimmer to cut my cuticles. After that, I use a nail file and file my nails into a square tip with round edges.
Once I have my nails shaped, I paint my nails. Previously I could only grow my nails out to a certain length before they began to break. It was not until I discovered Nailtiques Formula 2 at the drug store that my nails stopped breaking. It strengthens my nails to the point where they no longer break. Also, I’m able to grow them out longer than I have ever been able to before. I put two coats of Nailtiques Formula 2 on my nails. I do this routine once a week, sometimes every two weeks. The Nailtiques Formula 2 is a bit expensive for a small bottle. But I promise you if you make the initial investment, you will not regret it.
