Tips and tricks for strong nails

06 09.06.16

I do not consider myself someone who on purpose buys a product, just because it is a high end brand. Even though, the nail polish I use the most is quite expensive. Compared to other brands.

So, my nail story. Just the short one.

From the age of 4 to the age of 18 I bit my nails. Chewed them so short it hurt. I tried everything to stop. In Denmark, we have something called Good Nail, and it tastes like s***. But that did not work. Some day I just decided to stop. So I did.

Kind of weird.

But that left my nails thin, and even though they are pretty white, they get chipped so easily. so I tried gel nails. My friend has these pretty gel nails, that I have envied for some while now. So I tried them.

They were way too big and clumsy for me. But they were so pretty, for the first week. And I got them in one of my favourite colours, matt grey. They lasted three weeks.

So now, I have paper thin nails.

I have two things, that help my nails. OPI Nail Envy – Soft & Thin Formula and OPI Avoplex nail/cuticle oil. They are both quite expensive. But worth every penny.

I have been using them for about two weeks now, and I can really feel a difference. My nails, even though they are still soft, have gained strength. So I hope that I can do nail art again soon. Even though my fake nails were way too much. The nail art I was able to make (as a beginner), was a lot easier on larger nails. And the end results were really amazing.

And of course I made Disney inspired nails.

Until next time.
