I’ve been a nail biter for as long as I could remember. There wasn’t much stopping me from biting my nails. It was just one of those bad habits that no matter what I did I couldn’t quit. There were a few occasions that I would let my nails “grow out” and I use the term grow out lightly. However because I bit my nails so much when they did grow out they were too weak, and thin to ever last. So I went the route of acrylic nails, and to be honest those didn’t last much longer then my regular nails.
I recently just got my nails done with acrylics for a review actually and I fell in love with them. I left them on for about a week and half before taking them off. I took them off for a couple of reasons actually. A few days prior to my acrylics being put on I had been applying Nailtiques Formula 2 onto my nails. This particular formula is a nail protein that also bonds your nail together and prevents peeling and tearing. It also hardens the nail and helps it grow strong and healthy.
I could actually see MY nails had grown a lot since the week and half my acrylics were put on. I have another appointment this week to have my nails done so I wanted my nails to have a chance to breathe before doing anything else with them. When I took my acrylics off last night this is what I saw.
As you can tell my nails looked really dry, and flaky. I was so worried that when I removed my fake nail that it would tear my real nail. It took a layer off the top of it, but it didn’t totally destroy my nails so I can only hope that Nailtiques Formula 2 saved my nails from the start. I certainly know that they helped my nails right away after they were off. The picture below is my nails less than 24 hours later with a coat of Formula 2 on them.
They feel stronger, they look so healthy and I look forward to the “bond” that I make with this product. This may just be an answer to my horrible nail-biting habit. It can be worn alone or with any color nail polish which is nice since I’d like to try a snazzy color later on this week. This product varies in cost depending on the size of the bottle you get. The bottle I was sent is a 1/2 oz bottle and retails for $17.50 on their website. You can purchase it in store at major beauty shops such as Ulta.
Thank You Nailtiques for strong, healthy and beautiful nails!
