Let’s face it, gel nails look great. Nothing gets me skipping down the street like a fresh gel mani. But the removal required to keep those babies in good nick can take its toll on our nails. Dehydrated, weak, and sometimes brittle, it’s good to take a break now and then from our gel appointments, to allow the nails to ‘breathe’. If you can’t bear a bare nail, try a nail strengthening treatment like IBX (or DIY it with a bottle of strengthener), to help toughen up natural nails. They’ll be strong and healthy in no time – just what the doctor ordered.
How to get longer, stronger nails
Sorry fellow co-workers, but I love to hear that tap-tap-tap of long, strong nails on my keyboard. While hair and skin may be top of your self-care list, it’s easy to forget about the health of our nails (and cover up any sins with a slick of coral polish). But running fingers through your locks and getting stuck mid-way from a broken nail is all too annoying. So whether you’re a fan of acrylics, or natural nails are your go-to, it’s time we gave our fingertips some TLC. Here’s our guide to nurturing nails. Tap tap tap.
