It's a well known fact that I love nail polishes, in every haul post I write there's a polish or top coat of some description. For the last couple of years my nails have been very strong and I have always put that down to the medication I take, but over the last couple of months I've been having problems with my nails breaking a lot and it's really been getting me down because my nails seemed to have become very weak, just as I was despairing I received 3 nail treatments from Nail HQ to try which was perfect timing, I have been using them ever since.
Nail HQ Hardener
The Nail HQ Hardener is designed to toughen and protect the nails, it prevents nail brittleness and splitting to promote nail growth, it contains collagen and a unique mineral complex infused with calcium, iron, magnesium, aluminium and manganese. I apply the nail hardener to my nails as a base coat before my nail polish, it can be worn alone too if you prefer and gives the appearance of a clear polish if worn alone but I prefer to use it as a base coat and wear my polish over the top. I have found since using the Nail HQ Hardener under my polish as a base coat that my polish lasts longer too which is a great bonus. The brush on the hardener is a wide brush meaning one stroke is all you need to coat the nail, the consistency is quite thick but it doesn't affect the drying time of the hardener and doesn't feel gloopy either. I've used this as a base for my polish the last few times I've painted my nails and I've definitely noticed a difference in my nails, they are much stronger. My eldest daughter has been using the hardener too and she said her nails are feeling better and stronger and she noticed her polish lasts longer when she uses it too.
Nail HQ Protect & Repair
The Nail HQ Protect & Repair is formulated for weak and soft nails and contains root ginger, rice protein, soy protein and hydrolysed collagen, it also contains water to help hydrate and moisturise which helps with the nail flexibility. This product is applied to clean nails and has the appearance of a clear polish, a new coat is applied every day for 5 days and then the protect & repair is removed with nail polish remover and the process repeated, the brush is an average sized brush and the product is easy to apply. I really liked this product and I could see a real difference after just 5 days, my nails felt stronger and had grown a lot in such a short space of time, I was really impressed with it.
