X Factor’s Illusionary. I so loooove all X Factor polishes I’ve tried. Only polish that can hold up to my nail abuse. ๐Ÿ™‚

NOTHING!!!! I got over my nail polish addiction because I didn’t want my nails to yellow and purchase different kinds of coats to protect it and etc… So now I can just spend tons of money on eyeshadow and lippies instead, haha

Astor – Play the Graffiti over an orange creme from Catrice and I love it! It does look a little bit like a Halloween manicure, but I don’t really mind ๐Ÿ˜€

I haven’t worn nail polish since my wedding in 2011. My nails are so weak that everytime I try it chips within two days (with base and top coat), and I always end up with horribly broken nails. Nothing has helped so far, any suggestions?

I have this same problem. I would get acrylics put on for a long time. Finally my nails are long enough to be without the tips. My manicurist puts on the acrylic powder and the other stuff (no idea what it is called) on my nails to keep them strong and not breaking. Works for me. I am also rough on my hands (work in a doctor’s office, so constantly washing) and paint my nails on average twice a week. Hope this helps!

try taking some magnesium citrate supplements. weak nails can be a sign of magensium deficiency, which can also cause other health issues over time

Thank you for the suggestion, @Kellly. I take magnesium on a fairly regular basis since I have acid reflux. My nails have been really thin and bendable for as long as I remember, though. :/

Hey! Have you tried Quimica Alemana nail hardener? I’ve been using for several weeks and I’m in LOVE with this!
