I hate to say it but I never do my own nails. Do you? Honestly who has the time? I think the last time I gave myself a manicure I was 15 years-old! Until last weekend that is…
In the past year, my nails have been breaking, chipping, getting thinner, and overall just looking pretty damaged. Thinking this is part of the beauties of aging and with my schedule, my nails are literally the last thing on my mind. The odd times I get manicures the little Asian lady comments and says I need to use nail restorer and protector – I have never listened. Until a few weeks ago when my girlfriend Val Stachurski sent me a Trind Keratin Treatment Nail Kit that included just that, as well as some fabulous colours that also have strengthening ingredients.
So, last Saturday I decided to give it a go and do my own manicure. What I learned from this experience is that I suck at giving myself manicures. After applying the keratin treatment, I of course chose to use the bright red colour and got it all over my fingers, the counter and my clothes – my boyfriend even promised to buy me monthly manicures so that I never attempted to do my own again. However, less than one week later, my nails have grown, they’re harder and not splitting. This product actually works!
I’ve since gone to the site and they have a whole collection of corrective nail solutions that include plenty of coloured repair polishes, cuticle pens and more. I will definitely continue to use this brand as a result of my discovery – but I’ll stick to the neutral colours at home and leave the bright stuff for the professionals!
Trind products are available at NailPolishCanada.com and SpaBoutique.ca as well as all of these salons. Not sure about ’em? Enjoy this 50% Off Perfect Cuticle & Nail Kit by Trind PROMOTION at NailPolishCanada.com.
