Starting in February I had some major breakage and staining on my nails, something that had never happened to me in the past. I couldn’t figure out why and then it came to me I had changed the base coat to Seche Vite from the trusty Sally Hansen Double Duty Base and Top Coat.
To help with the breakage all the nails had to be cut down to nothing and the use of Sally Hansen Complete Care started. (A product I purchased) I asked Sally Hansen to send me some growth products to blog about. They sent me two products a bottle of their Maximum Growth and a bottle of their Maximum Strength. In order to restore my nails I used these products as stand alone on the nails or as a base to my nail color. I was pleasantly surprised by the results. Maximum Growth is more geared towards soft, bitten and weak nails, while Maximum Strength is more for strengthening nails to help prevent breaking peeling or a tear. I started with the Maximum Growth and then went between the Maximum Strength and the Complete Care which is a four in one nail treatment.
My nails have rebounded, I recently cut them to grow out the staining and keep them healthy, I also continue to use the Complete Care and Maximum Growth. Once the staining grows out I will use the Sally Hansen Double Duty Base and Top Coat as a base to prevent any future staining and breakage. All of these Sally Hansen strengtheners are to be applied every other day and can be used as a base coat.
Complete Care-at major retailers and retails for about $10.00 a bottle, leaves a nice shine or polish goes over very easily.
Maximum Strength-at major retailers and retails for about $4.00-$5.00 a bottle, it is a nice light pink that can be worn alone or with a coat of polish.
The three nails strengtheners and my favorite most trusted Double Duty Base and Top Coat; the top coat has a great shine.
I hope you found this blog to be useful, please share your base coat or strengthener experiences on Facebook
Painted nails are happy nails!
