Well, as always the minute my nails reach the perfect length, and I have a huge collection of new polishes to test out , I am faced with a week a day or in this case an entire month of tasks that all do nothing more than weaken, break, and crack all of my nails. When this happens I usually just file them all down to the same length and start over giving them all a month to grow back to my desired length.
At first I was upset about the setback my nail drama was going to have on all my new polish reviews, but then I thought why not start from the bottom? After all for most of my teenage years growing my own nails was something I spent most of my time trying to do. I always wanted long healthy nails, you know the kind that you can open a soda can with? Well once I got em I never forgot how and now I will use my misfortune to show you how too!
Theres only a few things you will need to do this one is a nail file and the other is a bottle of nail growth “polish” I literally use this stuff all the time even when I’m not growing my nails out because honestly it doesn’t just grow your nails what it actually does is give your nails the healthy vitamins they need to grow and also be strong! Strong healthy nails will grow and grow fast thats the bottom line.
Once you have the nail growth formula and nail file the only other thing you need is the will not to bite your nails and the patience and time to take care of them regularly.
The nail growth formula I use is Nutra Nail Nail Growth Formula with green tea and acai berry antioxidants. This is the one that is purple I have also used the same brand that also includes green tea but its green they both work exactly the same but this bottle I have had for about a year now and its amazing. You can use this alone or even under your polishes but I love this alone when I am growing my nails out because I apply it everyday and then once a week I remove it with nail polish remover and start again.
So here is what you do its simple.
Start with short clean neatly filed nails.
Apply 2 coats of Nutra Nail to your nails it will dry to a very natural finish its not like clear polish or a top coat it will not even look like you have polish on at all. Apply this polish everyday for a week and then remove it with polish remover and start again.
Now once you have your initial two coats on leave your nails alone, don’t bite them and try NOT to do anything that will make them break. Having long nails is mostly about taking care of them and being careful, which is a huge challenge for me because I am not a total girly girl, I can be pretty rough with my hands and washing dishes and things that involve your hands being in water for a long period of time will make them get soft and break, so try to wear gloves while doing the dishes and be careful.
This is day one of my “nail growth how to” in exactly 7 days I will be updating you all on my progress with “length check” photos. I hope to hear good things from you all as well, so please share your experiences and let me know how this is working for you in the comments.
