It looks like the nail care category is still exploding with 4 new nail care products you should try now including DIY Nail Art ($11.46, barnesandnoble.com) from YouTube phenom Catherine Rodgers and a nail re-strengthing set from Kur by LONDONTOWN for those whose nails fell victim to the extended wear of gel manicures.
DIY Nail Art gives readers 75 how-tos for creating the most unique do-it-yourself nail designs in one fun book. to a product claiming to restore strength to weak nails (some of which fell victim to gel manicures).
Gel manicures deliver on professional-looking nails that don’t chip for up to two weeks. However, one downside of this gift of extended wear is that your nails become weak over time if you don’t treat them regularly (I learned this lesson firsthand.). After using the entire 5-piece Kur by LONDONTOWN Nail Treatment Set ($125, londontownusa.com), I was hooked. The Nail Hardener, Protective Top Coat, Nourishing Cuticle Oil, Restorative Nail Cream & the Strengthening “Acetone-Free” Lacquer Remover all worked in unison to help return my splitting, weak nails to their original strong glory. The top coat & nail hardener thicken keratin, the cuticle oil hydrates the nail root, the nail cream fortifies weak & peeling nails and the acetone-free lacquer doesn’t dry or damage your natural nail.
