Nail strengtheners, nail stamping & nail stuff
I’ve been lusting after several Zoya polishes for quite some time now. I want Charla and Savita so bad it’s not funny. They shall be my first purchase when I start to purchase new polish. I’ve seen several people post really positive things about them. I recently stumbled across Konad’s nail stamping stuff. It looks really fun. They have all sorts of plates with cutesy things as well as flowers, letters, numbers, patterns, even really neat french nail tips! I definitely want to pick a few up. There’s a plate with a heart french tip that I really like, as well as a cloud pattern and various japanese themed plates. There’s even a plate with Hello Kitty’s face! It sounds really easy. You paint some polish onto the plate, scrape off the excess. Then you press the stamp on it and roll the design onto your nail. See, it sounds easy. We shall see at some point how easy it really is for me. haha
Really though my question is what do you recommend for strengthening your nails? Do you have a special routine you do? Is there some awesome nail strengthening/growing potion somewhere that I need to pick up? In the past I’ve only tried a nail strengthener by Sally Hansen. However it’s been so long I’m not sure what it was. My nails are very thing and they tend to break off when they get to a decent length. Some of my nails also tend to lose their shape I guess? A couple of my nails will kind of start to bend down instead of growing straight out. I notice if I keep them polished they don’t do that. So I’m thinking that strengthening them would do the trick. Ultimately I’d like to be able to grow them out to a decent length so I can do french tips on my natural nails. I obviously have no idea where to start in making them healthy and strong. I know there are tons of products out there, but I want something that people have good results with and I want to know they’re legitimate recommendations.
