While it's easy enough to have long acrylics fixed on in the salon, we're game for making the most of our natural nails.
Endless experimentation with nail polish means your natural nails hardly ever see the light of day, and they're punishing you by breaking, chipping and peeling left, right and centre.
Is there anything worse than painstakingly painting your nails for them to become almost instantly ruined by a peeling pinky? If there is, we can't think of it.
Let's make a change.
Are you a recovering nail-biter, wishing your talons would grow back strong and healthy? Then you're probably in need of a little TLC courtesy of Sally Hansen and her Nailgrowth Miracle polish. Or better yet, Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream to fix your damaged nails beds and encourage healthy nail growth.
Nails wrecked from two weeks playing host to a heavy gel polish? Then turn to Deborah Lippmann's Hard Rock Base & Top Coat.
Just keen to get a bit more length on your already impressive talons? Nu Nale's quick fix nail cream will answer your prayers.
