I just wanted to take a moment and talk to you about one of my peek gardening season BFFS. During the spring my nails get pretty beat up. There is weeding out what grew in the garden over the winter, there is digging and planting for spring and summer, there is weeding after planting, and weeding when the invasive vines think that you added all those lovely soil amendments for their benefits and oh yeah, more weeding.
even with gloves my nails get chipped and break with routine frequency.
One of the products I use constantly at this time of year is the OPI Natural Nail Strengthener. It applies like polish and actually looks like a shiny top coat so if you are running around it looks like you have clear polish on. After a day and a half it will start to peel off, all of the goodness absorbed into the nails. At this time of year I just take it off and apply another coat. I will keep doing this repeatedly through out the heavy gardening months.
While it won’t prevent breakage, we do have far too many rocks and far too dense a soil for that, what it does do is it keeps most of those breaks from going down deep. I may get a few chips along the nail tips, but my hails won’t break down to the quick. For me, that is the best result I could have and why each year I pick up a new bottle. It is a quick and easy way to look after your nails when you know you are going to abuse them.
