After my recent disaster with an awful base coat, which saw all of my nails break & chip, I decided that I needed to invest in a product to really help get my nails back on track and strengthen them again. I usually have every strong nails so to have them all short & broken was irritating me & I wanted a product that would work quickly. After doing some research, I decided on Dr LeWinn's Renunail Nail Strengthener and when I looked on Feel Unique, I found that they had the 3 step programme reduced in the sale to only £19.89 so I bought that to give my nails the Rolls Royce treatment!
The set consists of the Nail Strengthener, Sensitive Nail Strengthener in Nude & Nourishing Oil. Step 1 is applying 2 coats of the Nail Strengthener on clean nails, then 1 coat daily for 5 days and on the 7th day you remove all coats & repeat this three times. This will help to repair & strengthen your nails.
Step 2 is the Sensitive Nail Strengthener in Nude. This is used after you have strengthened your nails to maintain them, It is used in the same way as Step 1, but for a shorter period & can also be used as a top coat to extend the staying power of your polish. I have yet to try this step.
Step 3 is the Nourishing Oil, which is massaged into the nail beds & cuticles to lock in moisture. It contains jojoba, sweet almond, olive & apricot oils for hydration & tea tree oil for its anti-bacterial properties.
So far, I have only used steps 1 and 3 and I am very pleased with the results. It has been strange not wearing any nail polish for a few weeks, but totally worth it to get my nails back on track. My nails are much stronger & are not chipping. I'm hoping that when I apply my nail polish next week, that they look even better and don't start to chip again, but will be maintaining the programme with steps 2 & 3 and will NEVER use that awful base coat again!
I think that I will probably do this programme once every few months to maintain my nails.
What is your favourite nail strengthening treatment?
Thanks for reading.
I've never tried anything from Dr Lewinns before, but I swear by OPI's Nail Envy - it really does work miracles on my nails xxReplyDelete

When my nails break I use Lush Lemon Flutter Cuticle Butter and leave them bare for a week. They are good as new after :)ReplyDelete
