nail fre nail polish natura
Hi I’m new to this app about 2 weeks and a half I got my nails done “French nails” my nails started to break because they are thin and the pieces of the nail polish too I don’t know how to remove this. Is my natural nail btw.
I have a distressed nail: now what?!
So your nail is cracked or the top layer is peeling and you need to save it before it breaks... I GOT YOU 👏🏻 Here are some tips to save your nail: ￼￼Use an acetone-free nail polish remover to remove any leftover polish from your nail and any excess oils. I use this one: up&up - Strengthening Nail Polish Remover ￼￼Wash your hands: do this in general, but especially after using the acetone free nail polish remover. This ensures that you won’t be trapping any bacteria under any nail treatments we’ll be using! ￼￼Use a nail strengthening treatment. I use this base coat which has helped me grow my nails SO LONG (by my standards) as someone who used to have a habit of biting their nails: ORLY - Orly Base Coat & Top Coat my only beef with this product is that it usually pees off within a few days if you don’t seal it with a top coat or other nail polish on top. ￼￼Use a THICK top coat on top of the treatment, or continue painting your nails as usual. This will create a barrier/shield between you and the distressed nail area and will leave it less vulnerable. You can repeat this as necessary, weekly until the distressed nail area is far enough grown out that you feel comfortable filing it down or cutting it off. Some of my nails are super brittle so I have to use strengthening treatments on them in order for them to remain healthy and long as they grow! What are your favorite nail treatments? #CheriePartner

Week 1 Nail Report
Well I’ve went and done it... Peeled off my gel polish manicure one too many times and caused my nails quite a bit of damage. As a professionally trained nail technician, I should know better, but I ran out of acetone to soak them off safely and so I had no other choice what with so many gorgeous colours! You may think that another gel polish manicure is the worst thing to do in a case like this, but ironically enough, applying more gel polish and committing to not peeling it off is what will do best! Let me explain. Many people comment that when they get anything from a regular nail polish manicure, all the way up to a set of enhancements, that they notice their nails grow faster and longer and stronger. The reason being that the coating on the nail plate cures to the nail underneath, allowing it to grow faster than when bare, as the nail then has more exposure and can be a tad bit “softer”. I also learned in school that nails tend to grow faster in the spring and summer, as opposed to fall and winter, so a gel polish mani during this time of year is prime if you’re looking to gain more strength and length! Gel polish seemed to be the safest way for me to go at a time like this; my nails are not only quite short as of currently, but also very thin, as when I peeled off the gel polish, it also stripped away layers of my nail plate. The less nail that a product has to adhere onto, the more of a chance there is of breakage or peeling off. I am committed to having beautiful nails that don’t require an enhancement, and so I trimmed my free edge (the part of the nail you trim with nail clippers) down past where I can peel of gel polish, pushing back my cuticles, and applying one last final manicure.... well until it grows out of course! Without using any nail aids (except coconut oil on my cuticles) I am going to keep track of how fast my nails grow by the week! I’m excited to have healthy nails again 😇 Colours by Gelish Polish “Ocean Wave” and “Radiance is My Middle Name” on the ring finger! See y’all next week!
the secret to long, strong natural nails
I’m about to let y’all in on the secret I’ve been using for years now to maintain my strong natural nails... BIOTIN. this is in a lot of women’s “beauty” supplements, but trust me when I say save your coin and get you a good multivitamin that contains biotin (most of them do!) as a little background, I used to bite my nails as an anxious habit for years. I was finally able to stop biting them, but they were pretty weak and would bend a lot, making it easier for them to break and tear often. I started taking a straight-up biotin supplement to help my nails grow longer and stronger, and while it did work very well, I switched to a multivitamin for two reasons: ￼I wanted to save some money by only taking an “all-in-one” supplement (multivitamin) ￼my dermatologist let me know that an excess of biotin can actually worsen acne I stopped taking the straight-up biotin pills about a year ago, and while I was worried the biotin in the multivitamin wouldn’t be enough, I didn’t notice any difference in my nails—they’re still long and strong! as you can see from the photo, this vitamin (which is just the walmart brand women’s gummy multivitamin) contains 500% of the daily recommended amount of biotin, which is PLENTY. keep in mind that this amount can worsen acne for some, so see how your skin responds. if the biotin doesn’t seem to agree with your skin, I would still recommend taking a multivitamin without it because getting your essential vitamins and nutrients is essential to maintaining healthy nails. does anyone else love biotin? and also does anyone else still love gummy vitamins even as adults? 😂
Static Nails Pop On Manicure?? ✅or❌?
Static Nails were on 20% off sale and I got some pop on nails because I’ve never ever tried fake nails of any kind. So like why not. Unfortunately, I don’t really love them. I’ll continue to play with the sets I bought but won’t repurchase. I really hope some other sets in other shapes can work better. 😩 These are in the style Madamosielle Coffin. PROS: ✅They look really pretty and fun. ✅They are fairly easy to use. I’ve never had press on nails of any sorts, and I’m able to put mine on pretty quick. I messed up the amount of glue I needed, but that’s on me. ✅They come with glue and a filer. ✅They did not leave a lot of glue residue on my nails when I popped them off. CONS: ❌Cheap looking quality, from packaging to the nails themselves. Color differences between product pictures and actual products, which is a no no for nails. Am I just expecting too much from fake nails? Or is it their marketing. ❌Sizes of these nails aren’t the best. It would look like they have a lot of varieties and they give you backups. But no, I can’t even find appropriate sizes for my nails, which are naturally long and kind of narrow like rectangular shape. Some of my natural nails are peaking through the tips of these fake nails. For my thumbs I used a slightly bigger nail which made my cuticles uncomfortable because the next one down is too small. I mean yes you can file them, but then I’d lose the shape of the fake nails so WHY! ❌One nail popped off the next day after I put them on when I was cooking and prepping a tomato... I applied glue only to my own nail beds, which, according to instructions, will give me a few days’ wear, not one day wear. And I’m careful with nails.
😭This time I feel disappointed at Dior❌Never buy its cuticle cream!
DIOR - Crème Abricot Nail Cream Dior is familiar to everyone, but most people definitely don't know its cuticle cream. Last year, because of my long-term manicure, there were peeling cuticles on the side of my nails for a period of time. Many bloggers recommended this Dior cuticle cream, which is not cheap. It cost me $28. I opened it with great excitement, applied it to the edge of my nails and nails, and found it oily and sticky. After applying it, you can't play with your mobile phone or do anything! If you subconsciously touch your hair, it will even stick to your hair! It's a nice little pot of cream that I kept at my bedside as a reminder to use it consistently, the only downside was it took a while to really absorb thoroughly. It was nice at hydrating my cuticles and preventing the hang nails, but it ended up getting too tedious to apply and massage every night... and I had to make sure it was fully absorbed so it didn't get on my sheets. Overtime, it started to smell funny too, like rancid oils (which it probably did go rancid). After using it for more than a week, I found that it didn't work on my cuticles at all. It cannot be used as a hand cream, so this is probably the most useless thing I've ever bought. I won't buy it again!
