Post-gel manicure rehab
I love a good gel manicure—but I hate what happens to my nails afterwards. Truth be told, I tend to pick gel polish off once it starts to lift (and I know this is part of the problem), which is why I only get these long-lasting manicures when I go on vacation or a business trip and I don’t want to risk chipping. But with two back-to-back vacation this summer (and two back-to-back gel manicures), my nails have seen better days.
Other than giving my nails a break from polish and loading on the Rejuvacote, I haven’t found any other way to get them back on track—and then I tried 7th Heaven’s Strengthen Nail and Cuticle Finger Masks. Packed with antioxidant-rich pomegranate plus argan and macadamia nut oils, simply slip your digits into these pockets and hang out for 15 to 20 minutes. The nourishing ingredients go to work on damaged nails, leaving them strengthened and revitalized while softening and conditioning your cuticles.
Best of all, this easy treatment costs less than $4, so why not stock up so your nails are always in tip-top shape, post-gel manicure or not.
