As an avid nail biter my nails have sadly taking a turn for the worse over the past year or so and have started splitting and looking in a more sorry state than usual. Very sad times! So when a good friend of mine suggested I try gelish (the same friend who had just trained to apply such a thing, what are the chances!) I though what have i got to lose! I was promised that it would last for at least 2 weeks and would help strengthen my nails and help them to grow.
To add to my tale let me explain that i have tried all sorts of nail 'saviours' over the years originally to prevent me from biting (that chili nail varnish... I hate to admit it but i like the taste!) to all sorts of acrylics and false nails. All leaving me with a worse state of talon's that I began with. So with a little apprehension I sat down in my lovely friend Alison's house ready to see what would happen, the future of my nails at her mercy.
The Results were fab!!! I went for a coral colour, although a lot brighter and slightly more orange than I had anticipated, the colour was great. As for the strength, these nails stayed put for 3 weeks and instead of the usual frustration from nails snapping off or cracking all I had was some pleasantly unexpected regrowth. Happy Days! Would definitely recommend to any lovelies who have issues when it comes to growing their nails or even hate reapplying colour every few days due to chipping...definitely worth every penny!
