Barry M Daylight Curing Varnishes

It has been a long time coming but I have finally taken the plunge and removed my acrylic nails. 

This may not seem like the biggest deal in the world but I have never had nice natural nails. They are brittle and my nail beds are small. When I worked for Clarins I had to keep my nails short so as soon as I made my exit from the industry on went the acrylics and that is where they firmly stayed, until now. 

There are a few reasons why I decided to remove them, but mainly I feel as I am getting older I am more interested in making what I have the best it can be rather than disguising my flaws. I still think that hands say a lot about a person and mine aren't about to get neglected thats for sure. 

Once I had dared to bare, I headed into Boots on a mission impossible to find something (anything) to make my nails bearable until the damage had grown out. The first thing I picked up without hesitation was OPI nail envy, if your nails are in need this is the number one go to product. And f course I needed a daily treatment oil, I am using the CND RescueRXx and it is working magic. But I also needed something to give the nails an immediate boost. 

I didn't want to break the bank so when I stumbled across the Barry M daylight curing nail varnishes I squealed in delight. There is only a small range of colours (lets hope this expands) and then a universal top coat you use with them all. I picked up two just to start me off Can't get you out of my red & Do it like a nude. The polishes really do dry like a gel manicure, I am just hoping they add some sparkly ones to the collection. 

I am not confident enough yet to post an image of my poor thin nails on the world wide web so I will leave you with a picture of my feet :) you lucky lot! 

Love Gemma xx
