Fake nails? YES YOU CAN WITH NYK1!!!
I have worn acrylics for over 30 years. I have never had strong nails. It feels so WRONG when they aren’t on! I ‘OCD-LIKE’, take care of EVERY part of me right down to my fingers and toes. And believe me, guys notice these details! My mother was right when she told me to always have a manicure and NEVER be without polish on your fingers and toes! I use my hands A LOT. Being without acrylics has really been a struggle. My natural nails split way down and I have to keep them super short. Ugh. And it’s not about vitamins/supplements either.I’ve been on a strict vitamin regiment since I first joined the Army when I was just a kid and through retirement So my husband is brilliant and came up with something I would’ve NEVER considered before: ***Press-On Nails!!!*** False nails have REALLY changed from the eighties! I took some pictures of the first set I’ve ever worn and posted that with others above. I bought more sculpted, long ballerina false nails on EBay that are $25 a set. (Which is better than $120 every two weeks!). When the ones I’m wearing are exhausted, I will take a pic and put it here. These false nails are called ‘Kiss’. The price is very inexpensive. But, I prefer my nails to be a LOT longer than the ones that they sell. (The pics above are in medium.). But the kit comes with its own nail glue, a file, and an alcohol wipe. ***ALCOHOL WIPES ARE SO IMPORTANT BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING WITH YOUR NAILS!*** Your nails naturally produce oils as protectants and without wiping this and whatever else from your nails, you will not get good adhesion. Of course you’ll need to buy your own nail glue with these. (Because even though they have their own glue and the nails are sticky on the back...well I personally don’t trust it. So, I typed into Google for the #1 BEST GLUE and it’s called: ***NYK1 Superstrong Professional Nail Bond*** It so happens to also be AN ANTI-FUNGAL WATER-RESISTANT ADHESIVE!! It is literally the strongest nail glue available on the market! It also is designed like a nail polish bottle with the brush. It also lhas a 4.9 out of 5 rating. And to have all 3 things at most $10?!? WIN-WIN!!! Remember to always wash your hands and then wipe the nails down with rubbing alcohol. If you don’t want to put rubbing alcohol on your nails to prep, clean and dehydrate, you can go for the more expensive and maybe more effective for you: ***OPI PH Balancing Bond Aid*** (I actually ordered some and some anti fungal polish because I didn’t know that this glue was so AWESOME!) ***Dr. Gs Clear Nail Anti-Fungal Treatment*** It paints on like polish. If you struggle with nail fungus, there are LOTS of colored polishes that have anti-fungal properties. So if you do, you can still look nice with your manicure while treating the fungal issue! Another WIN-WIN! Please ALWAYS wear an anti-fungal polish with these. They will not seal as tight as acrylics.

Can I talk about how much I miss my nail tech and how I’ll never take them for granted... ever. The work they put in is unmatched! The cow print nails you see above was done by my lovely nail tech. However, months went by in the quarantine and I couldn’t take it anymore, so I put matters into my own hands. Here’s what I used & the steps: First, I filed the top layer off using Beauty 360° - Designer Nail Files Second, I used cotton balls and aluminum foil to soak my nails in up&up - Acetone Nail Polish Remover Third, I began to scrape off the hard gel using the cuticle pusher -> then I used the sapphire nail shaper to shape my nailsBeauty 360° - Perfect Manicure Kit I then went back and used the nail file to smooth the base of my nails. After that, I soaked my nails in warm water with Dr Teal's - Pink Himalayan Mineral Soak Next, I used a cuticle nipper plier to cut my cuticles before I prepped for the nail polish. Here is the polish I used: •Base coat - Sally Hansen - Hard As Nails Strengthener •Main color - essie - Flying Solo Nail Polish Collection •Tips - L.A. Girl - Gel-like Nail Polish in colors Bazinga (blue), Flex (green), Good Vibes Only (peach), Giggles (bubbly pink), Pinky Swear (darker pink) Top Coat - Sally Hansen - Dries Instantly Top Coat I hope this helps some of you find your own creativity in your at-home nails!💅🏾

Polygel Nails Win! 💅🏻
Polygel Nails Win! 💅🏻
I purchased a polygel nail kit and LEDUV Lamp from Amazon because I needed to be able to do my nails without having to take the time out of my day to actually GO to a salon... not to mention with the pandemic I couldn’t do that even if I wanted to. I’m a nail biter and I’m also busy with work and life in general. I did not purchase the slip solution with this kit as I was under the impression it came with it. Slip solution makes the process a lot easier so I will be purchasing but it is still possible to do them without it as you can see! Polygel nails are not meant for wear and tear. They are weak. I noticed that if I used a lot of the top coat (underneath the nail as well) then cure it, that does strengthen them, but not like acrylic of course. Mine lasted about 4 days before they started to crack, which I could have fixed easily by filling and curing them again but I just took them off so I could do them again. Overall: I love this! I’ll continue to buy the kit once I run out. I recommend to anyone who loves to have their nails done and wants something to do in their free time 😊

Dry cuticles = the bane of our existence 🙄
Dry cuticles = the bane of our existence 🙄
Practicing a little #selfcaresaturday by focusing on nail care, but first a confession. As dedicated to skincare as we are, it’s not always the case w/ our hands. We’re both periodic nail biters & librarianship is particularly brutal. My hands are often dry from book dust & crafting, not to mention suffering countless snagged cuticles from shelving. It’s safe to say our hands hate us. Here’s a few products we enjoy 💅 🌸 Etude House Help My Finger Nail Pack: Contains shea butter, niacinamide, argan oil, & grape seed to brighten and moisturize the nail area. This is definitely an “extra” but there’s just something about tiny nail masks lol 🌸 Julip Take a Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment: This feels like a thin polish & really helps reduce nail peeling / increase strength. 🌸 Julip Your Cuticles Look Thirsty: Easy to apply & extremely nourishing, this cuticle cream really helps. 🌸 Innisfree Cuticle Oil: We refer to this as the big guns lol. When you’re cuticles are thirstier than a dude on prom night, this is the one you want.

Natural Nails: Use these NOT these!
Natural Nails: Use these NOT these!
I have been wearing acrylic nails for over 20 years. I have to go natural for the first time in a long, LONG while. I did some research on managing the upkeep of the natural nail and I hope this helps someone else in the same situation. NAIL CLIPPERS: DO NOT USE!! They cause little ragged tears in the nail which split and prevent them from growing healthy and quickly. Nail clippers, like the one I took a picture of, can only safely cut TOENAILS. USE SCISSORS: I have a pair of small and very sharp sewing scissors that work perfect for me. I have to keep my nails very short for about a month because of the acrylic damage to my natural nail. I don’t even have to use a file because these scissors do it all for me. But if you do use a... NAIL FILE: Make sure it is not made of metal or glass! These also cause edges that you cannot see that are harmful to the nail. Use a regular nail file and only go in one direction. Awkward at first, but this will help the nail grow healthy. SUPPLEMENT: From the inside-out is the best way. I use Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin, and Nails Extra Strength Supplements. They are affordable and do the trick for me! (I have to avoid the gummies or I will eat them like candy! Haha!)
