Going back to nail basics...
In 2014 I dabbled into the world of acrylic nails and I loved it. For anyone in Cardiff I would recommend Storm Hair and Nails. Michelle is incredible and creates some amazing designs which I would happily have done all the time. However, 2015 is the year that Matt and I start to save up for a house and we want to do this in the quickest time possible - I really want a garden! Anywho, this means that all unnecessary spending has to stop and that means my nails :(.
This coupled with my regular volunteering at the dogs home means that my nails aren't in the best condition at the moment, so I have decided to go back to basics. Yes, this means BOY NAILS for a short (I hope it's going to be short) period of time.
I've clipped them all back and squared them off and will keep doing this until all the damage has gone. I can feel a little ridge about half way up my nail where I've had the gels on so I'm going to use this as a benchmark.
Of course this doesn't mean that I'm basing the condition of my nails on applying nail envy, I know it's down to diet too, which I'm working on. But this blog is about cosmetics!! I also picked up a glass nail file because they are supposed to be better for your nails. I wouldn't want to comment on that yet, but the sound does go through me more than a normal nail file and I get horrendous goosebumps when filing my nails now.
