I’m forever getting compliments on how nice my nails are, so when I reply and say I barely do anything to them most individuals are shocked. I’m lucky to have quite long nail beds which I hear many woman long for. Having long nail beds to me makes me feel like I have two large beetles sitting on my thumbs however i’ve learnt to live with them. I don’t enjoy overly long nails so I think having long nail beds can be a pro as you can grow your nails a small amount for them to look long. So my dilemma is this awful weather, a few weeks ago I noticed a vast change to the health of my nails, lets just say they were a ‘hot mess’, dry cuticles, split cracked nail beds and even when I filed them down they were just not growing how they usually do. I spoke with Farrah from Makeup It Girl who advised me to use Nailtiques, now I have to admit, I had never heard of this brand before, Farrah kindly sent me some products to try out.

Nailtiques Formula 2 – This formula is for weak, soft, bitten or nails that are just unhealthy, it consists of a unique blend of protein and conditioners that will immediately help nails that are in need of some TLC. Ingredients include: hydrolyzed keratin and protein in combination with gelatin and calcium to help bond nail layers together building a stronger and healthier nail. I applied this daily for about 2 weeks, in fact I applied it so much that my nails were over healthy and so hard they broke :p. Apply this formula daily but keep an eye on your nails, if they seem to be back in their normal form then use formula 1 to help maintain! This formula is truly magic, I highly recommend.

Nailtiques Formula 1 – Like mentioned above, this formula is designed to help maintain healthy nails, it will continue to help bond your nail layers together. Formula 1 is recommended for people who have previously been using formula 2 and also for those who already have healthy nails but need that extra little help. I have now switched over to formula 1 and I apply it around 2-3 times a week, I can see such an amazing difference in my nails since using these formulas, my nails are indeed back to their healthy selves! Happy days 🙂

Nailtiques Oil Therapy – Another hero product from Nailtiques, enriched with fabulous Vitamins which help to get rid of those ugly brittle stubs. This formula can be used on toe and hand nails to help dry flaking nails. Since using Oil Therapy my cuticle’s are super soft and for someone who has a calcium deficiency this oil has really helped get rid of any white spots on my nails. Another great tip- If you use this over your wet polish it acts as a drying agent and also helps to set your polish. Kudos for this amazing oil!!

Nailtiques Nail Moisturiser – Enriched with collagen, jojoba and aloe this Nail moisturiser helps to restore moisture back into the nail whilst maintaining flexibility. I apply this cream generously to my nail at bed time for it to really penetrate.

Ladies.. if you are having a hard time with your nails I urge you to try out Nailtiques products, amazing formulas that really do work!! www.nailtiques.com.

Nailtiques is available to buy from the Ritz London and also on the Salonskinare and Lookfantastic websites!

Prices will be updated on the products soon

As you all may know.. I love my Natural and Organic skincare! I am also trying to lead a more Greener life style, so when I was sent an EcoTool brush I was very chuffed!

EcoTools, from what I hear have been around for some time, there unbelievably soft brushes are one of the first to use sustainable resources to minimise negative effects on the environment.  The brushes feature bamboo handles, a highly replenishable resource and cruelty free taklon bristles. Recycled aluminium ferrules are used to construct the brushes.

These brushes have fast become favorite makeup tolls for celebs and pro makeup artists who themselves believe in a greener lifestyle. I have been using my blusher brush everyday since I received it, I cant seem to change it over because the coverage I get from it is so even. The brush is super soft and makeup glides on like you have skin as smooth as satin. The bristles are not at all harsh or sharp so you’ll Have no prickly sensations like you can get from other brand Makeup brushes. The great selling point of these fabulous makeup tools is the price, considering the quality and the Eco friendly nature, these brushes start at as little as £3.99, not bad at all I say!! Amazing quality and you get to help out the environment too.

EcoTools are available to buy from Tesco and Superdrug stores nationwide.
