Polish & Repair

Training as a beauty therapist and working a lot with nails when I got the email asking if I'd like to review some nail polish that doesn't just look good but does good for your nails too I jumped at the chance!

I can do other people's nails but never my own, typical! Also how old and wrinkly do my hands looks? Great. 

So Micro Cell products - 'nail recovery with a hint of glamour' -  have recently entered the UK market after being best sellers in Germany and specialise in restoring the health and vitality of your nails. 

The first little bottle I received is Nail Repair. This is developed specifically for soft, brittle nails and is supposed to strengthen and prevent splitting or tearing, accelerate growth, activate the rebuilding of protein molecules in nail layers and connect the layers of nails to strengthen the body of the nail. Pheww, a bit technical that last bit, eh? Well as much as that sounds it really does work! 
I was a little bit dubious about it all to start with but I have been really pleased the the results, especially the speed at which this works. You're supposed to put one coat on one day and repeat the following day with a second coat and then on the third day remove with Nail Repair Remover (which I don't have) and repeat this process over two to three weeks. It also recommended to use as a base coat once a week so this is what I have been doing for about four weeks now except for with normal acetone-free nail polish remover. My results? Stronger, longer and much healthier nails! Seriously, they have been growing much faster and not breaking. I do a lot of horse riding so my nails often split or break but I've had none of it, especially the last couple of weeks. I'm very pleased. 

Finally Colour Repair. I'm so happy to have been sent the shade Raspberry Kiss (a red wine/purple colour) as it's something I would have chosen for my self. It goes on nicely and gives the nail a nice shine but watch out as it chips really easily without a decent top coat. I love the idea that my nail polish is treating my nails rather than weakening them so I think I'll definitely be investing in a few more colours - you can view the whole range on the website here

Overall I highly recommend the brand and with a range of other products from cuticle oil, through nail files to hand cream to choose from I can see the brand taking off very soon.
