It was then that I discovered Nailtiques Formula 2, a strengthener designed for weak brittle nails. After that, I used it with routine and once again my nails flourished.
This stuff works and just two weeks after using it several times a week, my nails, that were thin as rice paper, are transformed. Word up: Do consider a surgeons mask and applying it somewhere well ventilated, say, perhaps, an outdoor deck. The fumes are noxious, because the ingredients read like the periodic table. It's a steep price, but once again, vanity is thy name and I'm thrilled to have my nails back.
The second must do is a nightly slathering of Burts Bee's Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. I have no idea how long this little tin has been on my bedside table. I used it recently, first on my toes. I love a good day at the beach, but it does wreak havoc on ones pedicure...Not only does it dull polish, but my cuticles looked dry and a bit ragged.
After renewing some gloss with a coat of Nailtiques, I applied Burts Bee's Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream on my toes before bed and hoped for the best.
I was delighted to wake up the next morning fully rehabilitated. The next night, I used it on my fingernails as well. This is a much more human being friendly product, with natural ingredients like Sweet Almond Oil and Cocoa Seed Butter to, "moisturize and soften cuticles" and Vitamin E and Sunflower Oil to, "nourish brittle nails".
So a little yin and a little yang, but together, my summer nails and toes are looking pretty, pretty and of course, I had to share my good fortune, so it may become yours...
