After wearing acrylic nails for a good few months, I decided to give my nails a break. I was really shocked at how weak and unhealthy my nails looked after I had my acrylics removed so I have been looking for products that really focus on healing and strengthening my nails. When I was offered the chance to review the Nail HQ Strengthener*, I jumped at the chance - the formula is designed purely for improving the quality of your nails and in the long run, it will help your natural nails grow. The Strengthener contains keratin and a multi-fruit complex of lactic and glyolic acids - these are all key ingredients for healthy, happy nails! My first impression? I will be honest and say how much I neglect my nails, I pretty much slap my nail polish on without actually thinking about the prep work. My nails were incredibly weak a few weeks ago but since I have started applying the Nail HQ Strengther I have really started to notice a difference.
I have been applying the formula to my nails (painted and also unpainted) and it quickly dries leaving a subtle barrier over your nails. I am really impressed with how quickly the formula dries and what a lovely finish it leaves - I know it is working its magic for the health side, but it looks lovely over nail polishes too! You can see the full Nail HQ range here, they are available in Tesco's, Amazon and Superdrug 10/10. Now the Eye Candy London Lights nail polish is less health based and more pretty and sparkly! Yes, I am a sucker for sparkly nails - this is the perfect polish for jazzing up your nail polish. I can be so dull when it comes to nail polishes so applying a few coats of this nail varnish will really mix things up - I loved how quickly it dried and it looks pretty with every nail colour! Have you tried any strengthener products or sparkly nail polishes? You can find the Eye Candy* polish here ♥
