Me and M have both bought quite a few new nail bits and pieces recently so we decided to make it a theme and do 21 Days of Nails.
I’m sure many other blogs have done something similar but we have so many nail things to share with you that we couldn’t resist doing the same ourselves!
So Day 1 is based on the wonderful new products from Revlon.
Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of one of the products as it seems to have disappeared which is rather annoying!
I’m a big fan of their new nail treatments and now between me and M I think we have them all…
Mine include the Post Trauma Nail Treatment (no photo of this unfortunately!) Calcium Nail Hardener and Liquid Quick Dry.
I’ve had a problem with my nails since last December time (ish) where they’ve been peeling and generally in bad condition for no reason really!
Nothing I could do would make it go away.
The first products that have got rid of ANY peeling at all and any softness in my nails have been the use of both the Post Trauma nail treatment and Calcium gel nail hardener.
Below in the photo I have on the Post Trauma one:
It’s a light pink colour in the bottle but as soon as you paint it onto your nails the colour disappears and the polish appears to melt into your nails and mattify them, it’s such a weird thing!
After using this whilst I was in America and digging a hell of a lot using my hands I never thought there was a hope it would work, but it actually did!!
I couldn’t believe it.
I then applied the Calcium Gel on top of the Post Trauma which as you can see in the pictures above is a white colour, but it dries clear on your nails with a shine.
You can use both of these on their own for a specific problem, combined for the ultimate in nail treatment and protection, or under your normal manicure of choice and the effects are still brilliant.
I would more than recommend these in place of other more expensive nail treatments such as OPI Nail Envy. I have never used the Nail Envy and I know that it is very popular but for those who are on more of a budget this more than does the job!
What do you think of these treatments? Would you try them over OPI?
I hope you enjoy the 21 days of nails, we’re really excited about all the posts we’ve got coming up!
L bought me back the gentle cuticle remover and I was so excited to use it. I’ve recently started looking after my cuticles so this was something I was excited to try. I tend to use cuticle oil on my nails every night then a cuticle remover once a week when I give myself a mini mani. I was recently ussing my mums Sally Hansen gel cuticle remover which was like a scrub which I loved. I really like this Revlon one though as it’s more gentle on the cuticles which is a bonus as they are delicate and it will last longer. I’m also off to town today to pick up the post trauma treatment.
If you’ve read nail posts written by me you’ll know I’m in love with OPI nail envy (review found here) It’s the best nail strengthener I’ve used. After I used that bottle up I then picked up a bottle of the nail envy maintenance which I equally love but it’s quite expensive and I’ve almost run out so I’m keen to see if I can get as good results as L did with the Revlon ones.
What is your go to strengthener? I have very weak nails after biting them very very short for 21 years of my life. I’m still resisting at the moment. I find I bite them less if I have them painted. I’m determined to have pretty long nails.
Love M xxx
