What to do if your nails need to reset
It’s no secret I’ve been obsessed with NexGen manicures since getting my first one six months ago, and my nails haven’t see the light of day since. But after experiencing a few cracks and breaks (probably because my nails were SO long!) I decided to take a break and give the whole au naturel thing a try—with a little help from the Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System.
For the record, my nails were in relatively good shape after getting my last NexGen removed, but they definitely weren’t great. I figured it was the perfect opportunity to try this nail-repair system, which has been sitting on my desk for the past month, and I’m so glad I did!
Designed to rejuvenate your nails in three easy steps you do once a week, the process starts with a glycolic acid peel (yes, for your nails that you brush on and allow to dry. Then, you prime your nails with each of the three surfaces on the buffing wand before brushing on the Deep Hydrating Formula. Once I finished, my nails were smooth and shiny without the need for a clear polish. (I did apply Duri’s Rejuvacote to give them a little extra TLC, though).
It’s been almost three weeks since my last manicure and I’m still digging this polish-less lifestyle. I have more time on my hands (ha!) and I’ve only now realized how high-maintenance my nails have been. I’m definitely not off manicures for good, but I’m rather enjoying the hiatus.
