My nails have been getting some hard wear and tear at work. To the point where they have started flaking at the ends – never a good look. To stop this spreading down my nails, I thought I would buff them down and apply nail varnish. Then hopefully but super conditioning my cuticles throughout this week I can start building myself some stronger nails!
The Boots No7 so bright nail brightener is the varnish I chose to apply. When most people talk about a ‘my nails but better’ varnish – they mean a greige. The varnish I chose is literally a ‘my nails but better’. You can still see the nail through the varnish. It is a very sheer coat of a pinky-peach colour that lifts the nails. They look super healthy and shiny but still look natural.
I applied a base coat (which has gone gloopy argh! So I need to go out and get a new one – perhaps one that will improve my nails too – recommendations welcome!!!) followed by two coats of the varnish.
I really like how this looks on my nails and I’m hoping it will keep them in reasonable condition. They look so healthy and I feel more polished (ha) when I have varnish on. It has already survived one day at work (honestly, I was expecting chips galore) so I’m quite impressed. I will see how it holds up and report back to you! It has dried a little smudgy though I am blaming the base coat for that. It was so disgustingly sticky…
What do you think of this? Would you choose to wear a varnish like this? Or is it too much effort for something you barely notice?
