Nail Must Haves

 I've pretty much bitten my nails my whole but at the beginning of this year I decided I'd had enough of my nails looking horrible and began painting them regularly, treating them nicely and stopped nibbling them. They still need some work as they break pretty easily but this lot is helping them on their way.

My first must have is the Leighton Denny Crystal Nail File, I love this because it shapes my nails gently and quickly. It's pricey but it lasts for ages, I've had mine for about 4 years and there is still no sign of wear. 

The Nails Inc Nail and Cuticle oil pen was a gift from my mum as she used it to strengthen her nails a while back and it quickly settled into my night routine so it has about 8 hours to sink in and do it's magic. Another cuticle product I love is Ciate's Beautiful Cuticles

L'Occitane hand creams are my favourite, although I am dipping into the Soap and Glory Hand Food territory but nothing will come close to the softness L'Occitane  leaves me with. I keep this in my handbag and apply it regularly throughout the day.

As I'm miss clumsy when it comes to nail varnish, always chipping within two days- I bump my nails on everything, I need a good base coat and top coat. My choices atm are Nails Inc Hyde Park basecoat and Ciate Speed Coat top coat, both of them make my nail polish stay on just that bit longer.

I always have a greige colour in rotation when it comes to painting my nails, I'm currently loving bright colours on my nails but I can always rely on a greige to save the day when I'm unsure of what colour to paint them. Fade to  Greige is my current go to but I have plenty of options including Barry M Mushroom and Nails Inc Jermyn Street.
