New for nails ft Sally Hansen Nail Rehab, Sally Hansen Cuticle Rehab, Bourjois Instant Dry Nail Drops

Yet again, my nails have been neglected and I've decided to renew my mission to help take care of them so I can wear lots of bright summery nail polish.  There are two new products out on the market now to help me look after my nails and another one to help speed things up when I do start wearing polish more often!

First up we have Sally Hansen Nail Rehab (€10.95).  Now, I went through a phase last month where I wore polish all the time, not giving my nails a break at all at all.  So I decided to leave them bare for a week or two, thinking I was doing some good, when in fact, they got worse.  And now that I think of it, my nails didn't look to be in bad shape after all the polish, I was just being nice to them.  And since taking a polish break, I've realised that they're so much weaker, flakier and everything I was trying to stop them from being!  Bloody hell nails, give me a break!  So I've started using the Sally Hansen Nail Rehab which promises to help weak ravaged nails which I totally have.  It can be worn as a base coat or on it's own and I've started off wearing it on it's own, just to see how I get on with it.  On my nails it looks like a glossy clear polish so when I do start wearing polish over it, it won't affect the colour at all.  I've got a good feeling about this folks!

Now, one of my worst habits ever in life is that I always pick at the skin around my cuticles and nails and it's not good.  When I apply oils to my cuticles at work, it does help the skin heal quickly, but I find the oil gets everywhere.  Enter Sally Hansen Cuticle Rehab (€9.95).

This squeezy tube is absolutely perfect for keeping at my desk or in my handbag and the brush applicator is ideal for applying the product just where you want it with no mess or anything.  The formula has vitamin E which helps condition and jasmine and rose extracts to help soothe any inflammation.  It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave any greasy residue and after using it for just a week, I think this is a Holy Grail product.  I know!

Next, on to Bourjois' newest nail offering that isn't a polish!

The Bourjois Instant Dry Nail Drops (€7.99) pretty much do what the bottle says.  One drop of this solution applied to each nail will help your polish dry quicker and not only does it do that, but it helps nourish your cuticles.  I've used it a few times before my whole "we were on a break" with nail polish and it's fantastic stuff.  Now, I wouldn't advise using it if you're watching the telly doing your nails because it can get a bit messy.  When I apply a drop to each nail, it instantly smooths over the nail polish and spreads out all the way over the nails and if you're not careful, it can drip on to whatever your hands are touching.  I give it a few minutes to work it's magic and then rub whatever's left on the nails into the cuticles and voila, dry nails and moisturised cuticles.

So this is what's new in nails here at Lovely Girlie Bits and I can't wait to play with more polishes with my soon to be strong nails, perfect cuticles!
