have never had beautiful, strong nails. They always split and break very quickly. Even if I followed a cure that had to strengthen my nails, I did no see any result. I always polished my nails myself but because they were so weak I had to paint them sometimes three times a week. Very frustrating and I never had the patience to let them dry. I am someone who finds it very important to have cared hands, so I found it terrible to have nails like that. Therefore, I decided to switch to gel nails. And because my friend is a beauty specialist, I trusted her. I became her regular client and since then I came back after four weeks. I did not have to worry anymore about my short and ugly nails. They look representative and I like that.
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have noticed that I have stopped by posting nailfies. This is because my nail stylist was on the maternity leave, which was also a good moment (I thought) to give my nails the time to recover after all those gel layers. My other friend, who is also a beauty specialist, recommended me to do my nails but this time with gel polish. This way is less harmful for the nails. This gel polish is slightly harder than the usual nail polish, but this did not stop my nails to break anyway. Once they became longer I bumped it all over and the “gel” cracked, which also caused my nails to break down. I’m not a fan of veeeeery long nails, but I’d rather have them a little longer, than my fingers look small and elegant. So I thought: enough! I stopped it and left my nails to their fate. They were exposed without any color, clipped short and shaped.
