Nail Care

I’m not one of those people who is gifted with strong, beautiful long nails.  Over many, many years I have tired a lot of products that claimed to help strengthen and grow your nails long.  Well, I have had a lot of products that were epic fails for me.  A few nail strengthening products actually seemed to work well, but then they would start to get thick and stringy when I would put them on my nails.  A few months ago I was at Target (I believe it was $8.50) and came across Essie “Grow Stronger” Base Coat.  The packaging says:

“get a fresh start. add strength, durability and superior protection against chipping. this fast drying, glossy finish formula helps put an end to breakage. DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free

I have been using this as my base coat for a few moths now and have noticed my nails have gotten stronger.  Another thing I like is that I can apply this by itself and it gives a hint of nude color to my nails…perfect for those days I just don’t have time to do a mani, but want a hint of glossy color.  Another bonus is that it’s fast drying so I can get out the door fast!
