Nail Holiday - 14 days of no polish - DAY 2


So my hands and nails have finally decided that they've had enough of my negligent attitude and icy winter cold. Nails are mega-dry and peeling, cuticles are cracking and bleeding and skin on the hands is crepey and scaly. And I've got a callous in my hand from the crutches! On top of this I have got an infection in the surgical scar on my foot so I am on antibiotics which is giving me serious spots. My nails may not look so bad in the photo but that's because they are slathered in Solaroil! They're condition is depressing me, so I've come up with a plan.


So I have ordered myself some Nubar Nu Nails treatment for troublesome nails, broken out my new giganto-bottle of CND Solaroil and my Soap & Glory Hand Food. I am taking 2000mg Biotin daily. I have also started filing my nails down with my OPI glass file instead of cutting them (they grow very quickly).


So until my Nubar Nu Nails arrive, I will keep applying hand cream and Solaroil to keep conditioning them up. Then I will do the 7 day Nubar Nu Nails and review it for you all! And hopefully by Day 14, there will some nice new nails to look at for all of you :)


That won't stop me posting however, I've got a ton of reviews of products coming up for you so keep an eye out. And of course, I will be giving you regular updates on my nails condition!

This dry winter time is terrible for my nails too.
Good luck with your rescue plan! I read on thebeautybrains.com that you best first moisturize, then apply oil. That way the moisture gets locked in. Maybe this helps.
