I simply call my nails damaged, for a lack of a better term. The topcoat (the pink part) of the nail itself easily splits, peels back and looses chunks. Part of this, I know, happens because of some of the medicins I'm taking agains my health-issues. So I've decided to attack back at the nails in the hope to atleast get them to be stronger/healthier nails overall.

Using Mr. Nail's vitamine booster

cuticle oil with pepermint

and a bumblefeet ointment stolen from my guinea pigs first aid kit.
The ointment softens hard skin and heals wounds. Since I couldn't get a handcreme/nailoitment anywhere. All sold out.

Half a week into the counter-attack, I've found that my nails aren't as dry anymore. My cuticles hurt less and overall my fingers look healthier. Let's hope that soon I can be the proud owner of a pair of strong nails.

I ordered some special hand/nailcreme at last! Will take some time to get here.

So far I notice that one of my nails is getting rock-hard already. Most of the others still have damage I can't remove yet (not grown to the white of the nail).

After two weeks of daily nailcare, my hands and cuticles look better but most of my nails are still weak. Against all odds I picked up some extra hard nailhardner and am working with that now. Really hoped I didn't have to, but well I like my nails longer then stumps you know?

Does it have formaldehyde in it?
I find it's the only thing that fixes soft/peeling nails. But yeah...it's not exactly healthy.

Yeah it does have formaldihyde in it, at the maximum allowed % according to dutch law. Should fix my nails in two weeks, or so it claims and then you can use it once a week.

Cool, mine has 2% and it fixed my horrid nails and my Mum's (they were destroyed after gels). It took me 3 weeks but the difference was huge. I hope it works for you!!

Yeah I cut my nails short to give them the best possible restorage change. They are growing back pretty fast already, and look strong and really white so far. (still stumpies though).

Two weeks later I'm proud to report most of my nails have cured completely. Only the pointing fingers (so don't know the english) nails are still quite damaged and will take some more time to repair/regrow.


Aren't they pretty?
