In my very first post, I talked about my nail care and my love for Nailtiques. I've been using Formula 2 for 7 months and I have seen a huge difference. Formula 2 is made especially for weak, brittle nails that flake and chip easily. It has helped my nails become stronger and less prone to flaking.
While in California, I picked up another bottle of Formula 2 along with a bottle of Formula 1. Formula 1 is designed for healthy nails to maintain their strength and allow for flexibility. I decided to give Formula 1 a try because I've found my nails have improved a lot and now I'd like to be able to have my nails be flexible and not crack because they are too hard. One key thing to keep in mind when trying to keep your nails long and strong is keep your hands and nails hydrated. I moisturize throughout the day with Glysomed hand lotion and Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter.
Here's a picture of my first week using Formula 1:
I will post updates as time goes by with Formula 1. Hopefully it will help me maintain stronger nails.
Nailtiques can be found online through eBay or in CVS drugstores in the US or Ulta.
Stay tuned for updates to this post!
Update: today is October 26, almost a week since I first started using Formula 1. I have still seen the benefits of no flaking even though the weather is much colder, which normally dries out your nails and hands.
I've changed my nail shape a bit and am working on making them almond shaped. Hopefully they'll keep growing!
Update: today is Nov 1 and here's how the nails are doing. I've also started to shape them. They are slightly pointed into a stiletto shape.
Here's the last pic of my nails with the almond shape. I decided to switch them back to square because square seems to be a more neutral shape.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the effects of Nailtiques. It was able to help make my nails strong and repair any flaking. Definitely a must have!
