I had 3 nails break on April 18, it is now April 29, a full 11 days later, and my nails really have not grown that much. Which is kind of weird to me, they had been growing pretty quickly, especially after filing them down. I've been taking Biotin supplements, which is supposed to help with nail growth, but maybe it works the opposite way in me!! Whatever the case, I figured it was a good time to do a round of Orly Nailtrition. I'm also going on vacation in exactly 2 weeks, which is the length of time Orly suggests for the regimen of Nailtrition.
The bottles reads: "Nailtrition helps strengthen peeling and splitting nails. Collagen, protein, keratin, and bamboo extract help stimulate healthier, faster growth."
The directions: "Week 1 - apply 1-2 coats daily. Remove at end of week. Week 2 - Repeat. Repeat 2 week program as necessary, waiting 1 week before reapplication."
I've used this before, but not for the 2 week period it suggests. I had used it for maybe 4 or 5 days. I get antsy to use a nail color or nail art! Luckily, this treatment has a very pretty pinkish sheen to it. It does look a little like a polish color, not just clear.
Ok, so here are my bare nails, lefty and righty:
They look really dry and peely and filed weirdly..just a mess!
Here is with 1 coat of Orly Nailtrition:
And here are 2 coats:
I know it's kind of hard to tell from these pics, but there is such a pretty pink shimmer; when I think of nail treatments, I think of clear polish that makes my nails look really stark. This is pretty! When I used this treatment previously, I remember the polish holding up really well; there was not a lot of chipping or tipwear. Although, when you are putting 1-2 coats on a day, any tipwear will be covered up!
I'm going to try to post everyday, just to show the coats, and if there is any chipping or basic wear/tear. I'm really hoping for some stronger and longer nails by the end of 2 weeks! I have a mani in mind that I want to try for vacation!
Has anyone else tried out this treatment? Has it worked for you? I'd love to know!
Thanks for reading!
