DIY Remedy for Split Nails Gel Strip Solutions
I love Dashing Diva’s gel nail strips so much that I used them back to back (all through the holidays) and didn’t give my nails much of a chance to breathe. After about 4 or 5 different sets of strips, my nails started thinning out and splitting. Oops! It makes sense, but I just didn’t think about it. I’d slowly been suffocating my nails and they were suffering for it. I was very bummed out because I bought A LOT of gel strips and I was really sad I had to take a break from them. 🙁 It made me start to wonder if there was a remedy for split nails that would work for me.
It’s been about a month or two and my nails are mostly back to normal. However, it seems as though more people than just me were having the same issue because I received an e-mail from Dashing Diva advertising their new nail care products and remedies for split nails. Of course, I had to order them to try them out and see if they really work!
They call this their Red Therapy Line and you can purchase it by clicking on my affiliate link. I have not personally tried them yet, but I did read the reviews and so far people are claiming that they do what they say. There are a few different products of Dashing Diva’s Red Therapy line, but I ended up going with 1 repair product and 2 different base coats.
I purchased the:
- Repair: Rich Nail Serum
- Prime: Base Coat for Gloss Nail Strips
- Prime: Base Coat for Magic-Press Nails
Here is a brief overview of all of the products that are being touted as a remedy for split nails. I’ll update this post when I’ve tried it for myself and let you know how it went!
UPDATE & REVIEW:
After giving my nails a much needed break summer finally arrived and I decided to try out my pedicure gel nail strips!
I also thew on some gel nail strips as well to complete the look. I did use the Base Coat for Gloss Nail Strips for both sets and my pedicure is still going strong after about 2-3 weeks!
My nails however, started to get a little warn out mostly because I do a lot of gardening. As I removed the strips I did not have any issues with my nails lifting or peeling. The base coat worked perfectly! They also still looked very healthy and strong.
Yay! I will update on my pedicure removal when it wears off but I’ve received so many complements I’m going to keep them as long as they last!
