YES! i did it ,my new natural nails... A quarter of an inch nail growth on my fingers and i'm so excited ,i can't remember having my real nails looking this good ,they never grow beyond my cuticles and this is as a result of child hood habits of nail biting and domestic chores,so you can understand why this is huge for me ..lol.
I thought since everyone is on some kind of healthy journey (natural hair,long healthy hair, skin, e.t.c) including me, i figured it wouldn't hurt if i channeled that energy to another part of my body that needs a healthy growth too.You are looking at three months of daily supplements,regular manicure , and hand creams falling out of my house,handbag,car and everywhere else.
I wasn't asking for fangs or claws but my greatest worry was that they weren't growing at all. I just wanted to be able to have a descent length i could flaunt, with or without any nail paints on them.So having achieved this the next thing i thought was maintaining them with out the usual glue ,acrylic powders ,or artificial nails and that is what the ORLY GEL FX is doing for me at the moment.
Being my first Gel Manicure,i had to keep asking a lot of questions while this was going on and by the way, I had this done by a guy ,(yea..) at the salon,i lost count of how many coats of different Gel treatments he did before i decided on what colour to finish off the last coats with. (of course ..Pink ..lol).
These pictures were taken with my camera phone at the salon so pardon me for the poor images,
Its been a few days ,but for me its long enough to say that i'm impressed with the protection my nails are getting from the Orly GEL FX Manicure.
