Best nail strengthener, & how to make tips white??
Posted 12 October 2008 - 10:36 PM
Also, how can I make the tips of my nails white so that all I have to wear is clear polish to have them look good?
Thanks, ladies! Looking forward to all of your (sorry for the pun!!!)....TIPS!

A good nail strenghtener....I like Rimmel and Sally hansen. Rimmel is very cheap compared to other strenghteners.
I dont know the exact name of the stuff but it can be used as a top and basecoat and lasts 10 days and helps your nails gain more strenght. I love it and been using it for a long time now.
The sally hansen stuff is nice as well, but that is more a treatment than a nailpolish.
Its a cream and its good for the nails, vaseline intensive care has a cream for nails as well

Also, what I do is get an off-white color and scotch tape everything but the tips. I polish my tips with the white polish and then remove the tape. Let dry and apply clear coat. Hope this helps!

OPI NAIL ENVY!!!!!!
Google reviews on this and it is rare to see even one that does not rave about how great this product is. I am shocked at how great my nails look. Long, strong...I actually have to file them down soon! My nails would always grow but then break just as quickly. This stuff rocks!
I also ended up buying one of those whitener pencils. They are ok, not great. Any other suggestions on this part would be much appreciated

I know this was posted a while ago, but thought I would throw my 2 cents in! After you've finished one complete bottle of the Nail Envy, switch to OPI Nail Envy Maintenance. If you continue using the original Envy for too long it can actually weaken the nail...the maintenance formula helps keep the nails healthy and strong but does not altar the nail chemistry

i'm trying to grow mine out too & stay away from the acrylics! i swear they're addictive! i've been taking nail supplements as well as using the nail treatment. i can see some progress but not as much as i'd like. o well, i guess it takes time you have to be patient when repairing & growing out your nails to get them in tip top shape!

The TIPS formula from QVC mentioned earlier is good, mainly made up of soybean oil (at least it was a year ago, when I last ordered it). The TIPS polish remover is fantastic, a mix of the TIPS oil and acetone. The acetone removes polish in one swipe, and the oil prevents overdrying of the nail.

I thought OPI Nail Envy was the best too but my big mistake was I didnt change over to OPI maintenance. The nail envy has Formaldehyde and the maintenance has formaldehyde resin. Neither are good in the long run. My nails have separated from the nailbed, totally damaged after I banged them really hard on the table. Its been over a year now and I only recently realised that the damaged may have been caused by the formaldehyde in the product. My nails are healing since I have stopped using nail envy but they are not as strong now, Some are in fact still lifting. I can only hope that they will heal completely. I will not use anything now that has formalyudehyde or any form thereof.
