So if you read my blog you will know I started my diet about 18 weeks ago and then joined weight watchers about 11 weeks ago. I have managed so far to lose 32 pound and the only real down side I have is that since doing it my nails have suffered. They have started to peel and break and didn't grow so I needed to invest in some nail care and I picked up these 3 things and so far touch wood they have worked amazingly well.
Flexitol cuticle and nail cream about £5
OPI Avoplex nail and cuticle replenishing oil brought from EBAY
OPI Nail Envy brought from EBAY
This cream is really thick and rich there are 2 ways to use it either massage into the cuticles and nails or for a deep treatment apply cream and soak hands in warm water.
OPI Avople Replenishing Oil
I really like this stuff I have to be really careful with oils on my skin as I find it feeds my eczema but this stuff is fine for me. Its a rich thick oil which smells really nice.
OPI Nail Envy
This is a natural nail strengthener you apply 2 coats and then one coat every other day for a week and then removed and start again.
Ok so this is 4 weeks down the line I thought I would do a week by week run down of what I did and when.
So I applied 2 coats of Nail Envy on the first day and 1 coat on top of that every other day for a whole week. I used my Avoplex Oil twice a day morning and evening massaging it into my cuticle and my nail. I then used my Flexitol cream twice in the week as a night time treatment using it the same as the Avoplex Oil.
I removed the last week Nail Envy and reapplied the same as week 1 however I did apply nail polish i use a OPI polish as they have the strengthener built in and again applied a coat of the Nail Envy every other day and used the Avoplex Oil and the Flexitol cream.
Repeated week 2 however cut down the use of the Avoplex Oil to once a day but continued to use my flexitol cream twice a week.
I repeated the the removal and reappling of the Nail Envy and painted my nails as normal and used the Avoplex and Flexitol as and when I needed it.
I really think that these 3 things have made the most amazing difference to my nails and I would repurchase all three in a heart beat.
