The last time I posted was in October. It is currently December, almost January since we only have 3 days left before the new year comes around. I stopped posting because I was unsatisfied with the way my nails were and because of that felt utterly unmotivated to do anything on them. Which is sad, since I still have the love and addiction for nails.
That's when I decided that enough was enough and that I was going to do all that I could to make my nails strong and healthy and beautiful. I started where everyone does, but looking at the nail routine of those I admired and after a while one thing jumped out at me: BlissKiss Nail Oil.
I could go on a post about it myself, but I think Simply Nailogical does an amazing job of it, so I'll let you guys check out her work. I bought the Starter/Refill Kit because it's a great deal - plus can we talk about how epic the little oil pen easy and how convenient it is?!
Another thing that I decided to invest in was a super-duper kick-ass base treatment and for that I was willing to shell out some money. I decided to go with Nailtiques Formula 2 Plus for Excessive Problem Nails since my nails were very much in that category. I got it from NailPolish Canada, my favourite addiction website. I also started taking daily biotin capsules.
And well, less talk and more show I guess, haha. I started the treatment on November 25th, 3 full days of Bliss Kiss and then I started putting on the Nailtiques base, following the instructions provided with each product.
Now look at the Before and After miracle!!
I can't even begin to describe how happy I am with my nails!! They are noticeably stronger and grown longer than I've ever had them!! I've been super careful with them, moisturizing constantly and I can definitely see the improvement. My poor middle nail broke a bit over the holidays, but apart from that they've been going strong!!
I can't wait to see how much more they'll grow in the upcoming weeks and I have definitely done some - albeit basic - designs since I want to proudly show them off!!
