Growing my nails to Oblivion
This is going to be a post dedicated to nail growth – Who wants long nails fast? ME! I’m writing this as I’m eating a big portion of Veggie Spag Bol with TONNES of pasta because I’m on a no carbs after 6pm regime, obvs trying to cram in as many carbs as I possibly can – PS. Very aware this may not be the correct diet plan but this is God Damn hard OK (please pray for me)!
I’ve never spoke about my nails before now, mainly due to the fact I have ALWAYS lived with disgustingly short (bitten – cry face) nails. Oh how I’ve longed for gorgeous strong, long nails. I envy nail art bloggers and Youtubers who manage to create quirky, fun nails using their own natural, beautiful nails. Soph does nails always has gorgeous, natural looking nails that she can jazz up with her quirky art – I want that too.
One day a few weeks ago I thought to myself ‘Enough is enough Imogen, you’re a 24 year old lady now you have to take these things more seriously’. And, so I did, I took matters into my own hands and I purchased a nail strengthener and a new nail buffer. *Yay go me*. I know you’ve probably got to this point and thought to yourself, man is this girl serious, she is not a real girl – my thoughts exactly, For about 15 years I’ve failed as a woman and for that I apologise! BUT better late than never to the nail game **queue nail art Instagrams ***
HOW DID I DO IT? – I HEAR YOU SHOUT FROM THE ROOFTOPS
In addition to the nail buffer I picked up the nail nurse rescue by Rimmel. I picked this one as I remember always seeing one of these around the house which my Mum always used. She, by the way has always had beautifully, long and strong nails. So god knows where I picked up my god awful bad habit from. Another fabulous reason I love this product is simply the satisfaction of getting results fast, Seven to Fourteen days and you’ll have gorgeous nails!
TOP TIP – Topping up the coats every other day or so seems to do the trick.

MY GRANDPA PUT CHILLI ON MY NAILS?
I have always been a nail biter. My Grandpa tried everything to stop me biting my nails when I was little. Chilli and Mustard, you name it and he put it all over my hands, ha! I even used that disgusting little pot of hatred, you know the one with the sponge in? You had to dip each finger into that little pot of doom and the outcome would be, you try bite your nail and would end up with a VILE taste in your mouth which no amount of teeth brushing could get rid of **cry face**.
Finally, this isn’t a sponsored post, nor was I gifted this product. Just wanted to share my little piece of wisdom with the girls out there who can totally relate to how difficult it is being a nail biter with weak nails.
How do you grow your nails? Are you a nail biter like me?
