A few weeks ago I started using this Ruby and Millie Crystal nail, that I bought for I think it was £16 or thereabouts??? It was the only one I could find without going on line and taking my chances. I am a bit fussy as I wanted a Crystal not glass file as these are better for your nails.
I am trying to get to the root of my flaking nail problem. I read somewhere that a crystal nail file seals the nail as it files, rather than others which can split the nail layers allowing water to penetrate and lift it away.
I am prepared to try realistic solutions and not expensive potions and lotions as I feel the problem is not with the nails themselves but internally in how I treat my nails too.
Here are the changes I have made in the last few months:
I don't use acetone based nail polish remover.
The best hand cream I have found is Skin MD, but my husband has stolen it! I keep handcreams by sinks and in my handbag so I can use it after washing my hands. Every night I use a good helping of either Lush Lemony Flutter or Rosehip Oil.
Keeping a good hard top coat on the nails seems to help as well and I put extra around the nail tip and under the nail tip to protect them further.
Keeping the nails short and well filed.
I am taking my vitamins and oils as well so I hope that I am doing everything I can to get them and the rest of me back in to shape.
So far I've seen a little improvement so I am encouraged that over a time I can get my nails back to how they were.
In any event it is an excellent nail file, quick and easy to use and will last forever. Providing I don't lose it, like I seem to do with most things after a while! I am fascinated at the fine powder that builds up as I file, a bit yucky but I can't help it!
Do you have any excellent nail tips - a bottle of nail polish for the best one!
