I've always had really rubbish nails, but it never really bothered me until I hit about 19 when I discovered beautiful nail colours. I started having gel nail extensions for a year or so but it got so expensive that I stopped but was left with my old rubbish nails. I don't really drink milk so therefore don't have a lot of calcium in my diet but even after taking loads of different supplements discovered it wasn't anything to do with my diet-my nails are just crap!
My mother-in-law introduced me to OPI's Nail Envy a few years back as she swears by it. I gave it a go and was amazed with the results, and have re-purchased several times. It's an on-going nail strengthening treatment (as well as a base & top coat) that looks just like a nail polish but I swear, it does amazing things! Unfortunately, I got lazy and didn't keep up with applying the nail treatment. So, I've decided to try again and really go for it this time (as I may have made a sneaky Nails Inc purchase ;)) Here is the before shot of my nails:
QVC for £16.75. Well worth it in my opinion.
Watch this space for beauuuuutiful nails!
