As you can see they are still peeling, but the damage has come along way. I've come to the conclusion that I'll never have gorgeous cuticles or be hangnail free. This bare pic is the best they have ever looked in my entire life. Even my wonky thumb nail that I tend to gnaw on like a teenage boy grinds on a sofa arm.
I've been faithfully using Nail Envy that Kendahl sent me. I'm always changing the color but the rest of the routine has remained consistent for the last month or so.
Fist layer, one coat of Nail Envy
Second layer, two coats of this magical creation called Instant Artificials
(I try to stay still and let it dry completely before moving on)
Third layer, a gel polish or any one that doesn't chip or peel easily
(number of coats depends on the polish)
Final layer, top coat. I always go back to my tried-and-true Sechi Vite and I generally do two coats
And now that I've dedicated way too much time talking about my nails I'm going to go do the dishes and pat myself on the back for knocking out another post.
