Instant Nail Hardener (not 4 the weak nose)


I have always had very weak, brittle, dry, crooked (bent on the side specially when grow longer) nails. I tried for long to use several brands of nail hardners but they never really work. I love the sexyness and sophistication of long elegant nails. You look more girly & it makes your fingers look long, slim and sexy J

So I’ve been searching for a while for the perfect combo to keep my nails LONG & HEALTHY, so I’ve done some research & came out with the benefits of egg yolk for nails, which are the following.

They have high levels of:-

1-Biotin: which is very important to promote health nails and hair; often people who have weak nails & hair will be advised to take a Biotin vitamin. Biotin is also referred to as vitamin H (the H represents "Haar und Haut”, German words for “hair and skin”).
2-High in sulphur: makes your nails grow faster & important for the overall health of your nails.
3-Vitamins: Vit. A deficiency will make nails dry and brittle, which will cause them to break easily.
Also, vitamins D, E & K are found in egg yolks. Egg yolk is one of the few foods naturally containing vitamin D.
4-Calcium & Iron: we all know the benefits of them for the growth of bones, nails, hair, & eyelashes. A lot of nail strengtheners are enriched with calcium & iron. Lack of iron will result in rounded nails and ridges, it will also make your nails dry and brittle.

So this is what I do twice a week, I prepare this mix of (a) 1 egg yolk and (b) 1 tablespoon of Olive oil. I mix them then I soak my nails in the mixture. I make sure every nail is coated well (have a plate and napkins under your hands because it will be dripping off your nails and make a mess). Now leave the mix on your nails for 10 min and it should look like this
Notice the lil’ bubble forming, this means it is drying on your nail, goooooooood :D

Now I wash it off very well with soap and water (I usually like liquid soap brands that have vitamin E, again helps your nails and the softness of your hands).
I guarantee that after you finish these steps your hands will smell AWEFUL, LIKE REALLY BAD L L BUT if you rub your nails with some fresh lemons, it will take off a big part of the bad smell. I like to take half a lemon & keep rubbing it on my nails till the lemon is dry (they are very good for promoting healthy nails as well) . Wash off the lemons, apply 2 coats of your favourite nail hardener and you are done!
By Rimmel, Stronger Try harder base coat: strengthens & protects
I hope you try this and give me your feedback, you should feel you nail kind of thicker after 2-3 times of using this.

Note: if you can still smell eggs, just put some perfume or body spray & you should be good. If some smell is still on, it will go away with you working around & washing your hands several time every now and then :D 

Have a bright day lovelies <3 <3 <3
