Nail Magic Nail Strengthener


As winter comes in and the sun goes out, we're faced with serious Vitamin D withdrawal and cold weather and that means one thing - brittle nails. I'm a typical girl and love nothing more than pampering myself, doing my nails and painting them so when they break and split, I can't help but die a little inside.

The past few years, I'll hold my hand up and say I've neglected my nails. I've bitten them, had acrylics, worn false nails and then tore them off (pretty horrific!) and they've always been in bad condition, until I discovered Nail Magic.

It was my mum who first came across the product and she is the same as me, she loves getting her nails done and the abuse of nail glue over the years left hers, like mine, feeling very weak, so when she looked for nail treatments on eBay, she came across Nail Magic. I personally didn't have much interest at first, I thought it was just another bottle of rubbish pretending it can do your nails good. I've always used Nails Inc A&E which was recommended by my auntie but it's nothing compared to Nail Magic.

Claims:
"Get the Ultimate Natural Nail Hardener, with 37 years of Excellence! Nail Magic is a unique combination of ingredients which stimulates healthy and beautiful nail growth while strengthening and conditioning weak or damaged nail tissue. The formula was perfected in 1960 by Martha Peterson, of Portland Oregon, a professional manicurist for 35 years. Nail Magic was used in beauty salons throughout the country for many years before being made available to the public. Nail Magic can be used as a base coat, top coat or clear enamel polish. Application is simple, usually requiring less than three minutes twice a week."

Application: Clean nails with nail polish remover to begin even if you're not wearing any polish, it removes any residue on the nail. Then apply 2 coats of the Nail Magic and wait to dry. Once dry, leave, then reapply 2 more coats the following day. On the 3rd day, remove all polish from the nail and then reapply again. After a week, you will see a dramatic appearance to the strength of nails. Continue the process for around 2 weeks. The Nail Magic should have drastically improved the strength and appearance of your nails. I personally always apply as a base coat before adding colour polish to my nails too.

My Verdict: This product is just amazing! When I first started a proper course using the Nail Magic, I had been in a obsession with false nails, applying and painting them, then if I got fed up, I would bite them off which tore layers of my nail off and the glue damaged my nails so I finally packed it all in and started with the course.
I have to say that this is the best nail treatment I've ever used, my nails are so much stronger, none have broken since applying the Nail Magic (touch wood) and it's definitely made my nails appear healthier. Admittedly, my nails need a lot more TLC and there still is a long way to go and from the photo, it doesn't look like they're very long, but to me this is a big improvement (I know my cuticles look dry also, I'm improving that too). I am so impressed with the appearance of my nails in such a short space of time. If your nails are in need of a treatment or you just want them to grow longer, I cannot recommend this enough!

In this photo I'm wearing the Nail Magic as a base coat and top coat.

Nail Magic retails around £9 depending on the shop and can be found on various internet sites such as eBay, One Click Pharmacy and Amazon.
