If you read my ‘Natural Nails‘ nails post, then you would have seen how I have been rockin’ the plain nails recently. I haven’t actually worn nail polish for almost 2 weeks now! Although my nails aren’t in awful condition, they are quite prone to breaking and flaking (ew), so a ridiculous number of you recommended me the OPI Nail Envy. This is supposed to be a treatment for your nails which hardens and strengthens them, ‘restores them back to full health’ I guess you could say. It’s a clear polish that you layer on daily then take off at the end of the week for longer, stronger nails and then can use as a base coat when paired with coloured polish. After a bit of googling, I have seen some ridiculous effects with this – people claim to have what can only described as talons after using this for around a month! Others have complained about yellowing nails so I will be careful to remove it and start afresh every week. The only downside of this is that it costs a whooping Â£18! I know you can get it imported from the US on ebay cheaper but I needed some instant nail gratification so I picked this up from Boots. So thank you everyone for the egging on and I will be sure to update you with my thoughts soon 🙂

You Guys Are Naughty….
Yep, you all deserve a thorough ticking off, well perhaps those of you that recommended the following product to me! I read all my comments, some make me laugh or go ‘ah that’s nice’, but the one’s where people recommend things, I always etch those on to my mental shopping list 😉 Sometimes they sit on that list for months, other times they niggle away till I purchase and that’s what happened with this. Yes I caved and spent a ridiculous amount of money on a glorified nail polish base coat – but hey, I blame you!
