I think there is something biologically wrong with my nails. My nailbeds are short – the shortest in my whole family. They crack, break, peel and tear easily. And the worst of all – they hate nail polish while I love the stuff. For some reason I can’t get polish that will stay one for more than 2 days without looking like a disaster by day three. It’s really kind of odd.
Still, with all that said I have been trying to take better care of my nails hoping that a little TLC will go a long way in improving the quality of my nails. I have a friend who is convinced you can create longer nail beds if you take care of them and try to keep your nails as long as possible. I’m not sure if she is right, but I’m trying her theory and so far it does seem to be helping. Weird, right?!
I’ve tried a number of nail polish types over the years and have found a few that seem to be longer lasting or at least better on my nails. I am obsessed with Seche products. They work to strengthen the nails and Even just the strengthening coat goes a long way in making my nails look a little more polished and pretty. The polish also makes my nails stronger without becoming stiff.
I’m also a huge fan of shellac, because that at least stays on for up to 10 days without chipping. It’s astounding actually. My nails grow to fast to last three weeks like some lucky people can. Does anyone have one of those at-home shellac kits? I’ve always wondered if they are worth the investment and if they last as long as the salon version.
