Hey everyone, long time no post eh? Facebook told me it had been 9 days since I posted. Thanks, Facebook, I appreciate you looking out for me and then making me feel guilty hah! Life gets you busy sometimes, and sometimes life gets you down. Had a bit of both going on this week.
So obviously, I don't plan on doing any one thing with Zombiiesque, but more likely a number of things. Whatever feels good to blog about! Today I want to talk about those treatments I nabbed during that Pretty Serious Cosmetics sale I posted about. You saw I picked up some polishes after that, but I probably won't be ready to post swatches quite yet.
My nails have been a wreck. There, I said it. Yes, I used to blog about nail polish but my nails have been a wreck for probably six months! Ugh. How embarrassing. Breaking constantly, peeling, my cuticles giving me fits. I have been taking some medicine for some of my medical conditions, and it's been a rough winter too, so nothing I did seemed to help. I'd seen lots of rave reviews about Kaz's treatments, and I dithered a bit between Rock On! and Harden Up, because while I had peeling nails, they weren't thin. I decided to try Rock On!
Ugh, here's the big reveal. This is what I was dealing with prior to giving Rock On! a whirl.
Enlarge at your own risk. Eek. You can see how short they are, and how freaking awful my cuticles are. Both hands pretty much looked like this. Actually I think there was more peeling on my right hand, and this is the left, so you can only imagine how frustrated I was.
I started using Rock On! as a base coat about a month ago, and varied between Aqua Coat and Crystal Coat for my top coats. I have been using various oils for my cuticles, and this is what my nails look like now:
That's a huge difference! My cuticles aren't 100%, and there's still a bit of damage growing out on my nails, but wow. I'd say this is a success!
Now, I'm going to put out a disclaimer. I've seen a lot of success stories with Kaz's treatments, but your mileage may vary - just how Seche Vite doesn't work for everyone, this may not work for you. But it may be just what you needed to help grow out your nails, so I thought I'd share my story! I'm well on the road to recovery, thankfully.
