How to recover your nails after using color gels

How to recover your nails after using color gels

Hello everyone!! And Happy Labor day if you are in the USA 🙂
So I am here with another post and as you can tell by the title it is beauty related and not a recipe like you might have been expecting…
I was gonna try and film another recipe for you guys ( to post on Friday like I usually do) but after getting all my healthy food this past weekend I realized that if I was gonna get the stuff to make the brownies I was planning on making ( Yeah sorry for the next recipe spoiler..ha ha) I was gonna go over my weekly grocery budget which I am trying very hard at the moment to stick to but don’t panic, I will try my best to have another recipe up by Friday Sep 15th ( no excuses, I will make those brownies before then! 🙂
Sorry for going off topic but I wanted to explain why there was no new recipe last Fri..
So let’s get into a complete different field this time around and that is: NAILS 🙂
I remember those days before I had my son when I would paint my nails different colors every week, take several pictures, post them on Instagram, etc…
Now those days are long gone and that is why I started painting my nails with color gel polishes instead ( Yeah the ones you have to use the lamp to cure them, etc)
If you had been following my Blog for a while you might remember I went all crazy about gel polish around My B day I believe ( June 20th) and I used those amazing madam glam polishes week after week for a total of 4 weeks ( 1 month) and that, my friends, hurt my nails pretty bad..
Now like I mentioned on my YT video, don’t get me wrong, I am not saying gel polishes are bad and you should stop using them, NO HELL NO…
But what I learned is that no matter how “natural” and free of harmful chemicals color gel polishes are ( Like the Madam Glam ones) you still should go easy with it and not leave it on for much longer than a week as well as give your nails a break; so for example, if you paint your nails this week, go ahead and do it, enjoy your beautiful gel manicure but then take a couple weeks break and THEN you can paint them again, that way your nails can breath better and you don’t damage your nails so much when you remove the polish.
I ended up with 5 BROKEN NAILS ladies… not 1 or 2 but 5.. and that was caused after using gel polish for so many weeks in a row..
So if you get gel nails done pretty often make sure you check out my video because there I show you what I had been doing in order to recover/ repair my nails after using gel polish.

I hope you guys find the video useful, if that is the case don’t forget to comment, share the video with your girlfriends, like and subscribe for more!
Love you all and I will see you on my next post!
