Despite going green, the one thing I continue to have a hard time giving up is my Gel Manicures. They are amazing. They last at least for me, three weeks (I only use the CND brand) and I save money, time and my nails always look perfect. But, I am aware of all the toxic chemicals in the Gel process, so I did give them up for a while.

Right now I’ve been traveling a lot and its much easier to have Gel nails on the go so I can leave all of my nail paraphernalia at home and concentrate on bringing other skin care necessities. But when I did give up Gel my nails were ragged, thin, peeling and not like they were before. I’ve heard dermatologist say that if you are going to get a Gel once in a while its okay, but not all the time one after the other. I clearly do not listen, because all the ladies at the nail place know me really well.

I was desperate to fix my nails. I was going all-natural and it was not pretty. This was the beginning of my quest to go green in my beauty routine and I was still teetering in and out of being green. I went through several conventional nail growth, fixer products that did not work including Nailtiques. I had been looking at the Butter London Horse Power Nail Fertilizer  for some time but it was expensive with shipping and I wondered if it would work at all, or if it would fail like the others.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised. I used this consistently, alone on bare nails and under Butter polish and my nails got stronger. I followed the directions to put a coat on once a day and to take it off after seven, and sure enough in about a month my nails looked much better. They were not perfect, I mean I needed to grow out my nails, but it did markedly improve them so I could wear bare nails or a little bit of regular polish, and it made them stronger.

The Butter London colors are also really great. The color selection is totally on trend and they offer lots of crazy fun glitter colors, which despite not being five, I think if you have a steady hand, can be really nice. The polish itself lasts a good 3-4 days before chipping, which I think is fine, because I’m rough on my hands and I don’t expect much longer than that. And besides it is just an excuse to change my nail color more frequently.
