I guess it’s a bit of an old wives tale that during pregnancy you hair grows thicker and your nails stronger, as for me it’s been the complete opposite! My nails became even more brittle, soft and weak, but thanks to the Nails Inc NailKale Superfood Base Coat (what a mouthful!), from the first ever superfood nail range, they are now stronger and healthier than ever.
The NailKale Superfood Base Coat (£15/14ml) is a nourishing base coat that contains extracts of kale, aloe vera, lemon, ginseng, pomegranate and grape. Enriched with vitamins A, C, E, F and H, this nail treatment hydrates the nails whilst also protecting them from breakage and splitting. The treatment also offers keratin hardening and activation to stimulate nail growth. My nails have never looked this healthy! NailKale can be used underneath your favourite shade or worn alone. Nails Inc also have a collection of NailKale Nail Polishes in a beautiful range of shades that contain this unique formula for double the nourishment whilst providing long lasting colour and shine.
Today I’m using the base coat underneath one of my favourite shades from Revlon’s Colorstay Gel Envy Collection: Pocket Aces. This juicy pinky-coral shade is perfect for Summer. I also popped on a layer of Revlon’s Diamond Top Coat to ensure even longer wear and a glossier, fade-resistant finish.
This shade is highly pigmented, you barely need even two coats to get a beautiful even coverage. I actually got a full five days wear before a few chips started to appear which is a bit of a miracle for me! The flat, wide brush allows for easy and quick application and the formula is incredibly fast drying and streak-free.
If you suffer from weak or soft nails that split easily I can’t recommend the Nails Inc NailKale Superfood Base Coat highly enough. It has transformed my nails. They used to brittle and break ridiculously easily, but not anymore.
The Nails Inc NailKale Superfood Base Coat retails for £15/14ml and is available here.1
