Nail Tek : Foundation And Intensive Therapy

I've been a little nail obsessed recently (this is a consecutive post about nails) but I can't stress enough how important I think it is to look after them. It's all well and good painting them pretty colours and designs, but if they're deteriorating in state then you're doing yourself no favours. It's just like wearing makeup but not looking after your skin. In the long run, you're only causing yourself more damage.

As I mentioned in my last post on Eden natural nail polish remover, I've suffered from peeling, weak nails  that also often split in the most awkward and painful of places (right in the middle , which means I have to grow it out before I can even cut, file, and shape). Sometimes it's not enough to just drink loads of milk or have good calcium intake. A friend of mine, who is a complete nail junkie, recommended Nail Tek to me. She swears by it so I decided to take her word and try it. I bought Nail Tek Foundation II and Intensive Therapy.

Both work together. The Foundation (the cloudy/creamy one) acts as a base coat, then if you wish, simply apply the nail polish you want to wear on top; the Intensive Therapy (clear one) can then be used as a daily top coat to help strengthen the nails.

Alternatively, if you don't intend on applying any nail polish, this is wearable on it's own because when put on it gives a French manicure effect to the nails. The photo above is what the Foundation looks like on its own. It has a matt finish with a velvet texture but obviously with the Intensive Therapy on top, the nails look glossy. When applied and dried (which takes about one minute), your nails instantly feel stronger. 

I'll be testing them out for a couple of weeks or so and do a progress update video. 

If you're interested in getting these, I'd advise to you to shop around. Amazon and eBay sellers do some pretty good deals. I got this set of two for under £11 (inclusive of p&p) on eBay.
