Beauty Tip #2 - Stronger nails

23:37 Ana 6 Comments

Garlic and Nail polish basically.

I'm sure some of you have at least heard this trick before, maybe even some grandma of yours use it. But the truth is, it really does work and it's easy and cheap. 


The only disadvantage is the smell! yes sadly it does smell like garlic when you first apply it, but it goes away shortly after. But it doesn't borders me.


And to this day I haven't notice any alteration in my nail polish.

Here's what to do:

Side Notes:

-  > it's keen that you've already used some of the nail polish so there's enough space for the garlic or else it would spill over and we don't want that; 

-> Cut the garlic in small pieces enough to fit trough the bottleneck;

-> If you're having trouble making it go down just use the brush, way less messy :p .

After all this work you only have to wait about 7-9 days until all the enzymes and vitamins have invaded the nail polish and voilá, stronger nails await you.
Just remember to shake before each time you use it.

Hope it was any help to you.
