When I started my blog almost a year ago, I had very short nails, and that was how I preferred them. I don’t know what it was, but when they got too long I hated the feel of them. Weird, I know. But as my love of blogging and nail art grew, I decided to grow my nails more, seeing so many fellow bloggers with beautiful nails, the only problem was how weak my nails were. They peeled, they were bendy, and broke very easily. So I started looking for a solution.
The first product I tried was Nails Inc’s, ‘weak, peeling, bendy nails?‘ solution kit, mainly the Hyde Park base coat. This did help, but only when I was wearing it, as soon as I removed it, my nails were back to their usual weak selves, but it did help in allowing me to grow my nails slightly, although I often broke nails.
Then, I found OPI’s Nail Envy. I actually discovered this from a picture on Instagram that someone had ‘liked’ and it popped up in my ‘following’ feed. I did some google-ing, and struggled to find a bad review, so I thought I’d give it a go, and I ordered a bottle in the middle of November. I’ve been using it as a base coat, two coats whenever I paint my nails. Now, around seven weeks later, there is a HUGE difference in my nails. They feel so strong, they’re at a length I love, and (fingers crossed) I haven’t had any breakages. Even when my nails are bare they are stronger.
Nail Envy was definitely worth the slightly pricey price tag for me, and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another bottle when my runs out.
