Miss Sporty Nail Care Hardener
Advantages: Worked for me
My finger nails are terribly thin and brittle and they break easily. I suffer from hypothyroidism and this is one of the symptoms that comes with this. I find that my nails grow with deep ridges on them and as they get a bit long they tend to split along the ridge on some fingers,. On others they are just so soft that as soon as they get to a nice length to start painting them they bend and break off and I have to cut the others to match and start all over again.
My sister suggested I try using a nail hardener once I get my nails to a nice looking length and then paint them over the top to see if it helped. I ddin't want to pay out a fortune in case it didn't work so I was pleased to find the Miss Sporty range in Superdrug which were a very reasonable price.
My daughter likes using Miss Sporty make up anyway as it suits her teenage pocket so I knew a bit about the brand. The hardener cost me £1.99, it is quite a small bottle but then so are most nail varnishes anyway.
The liquid in the bottle looks a nice pretty baby pink when you see it, but as you paint it onto your nails it looks more like a clear varnish. You can see your nails clearly underneath. The stuff was easy to paint on, the brush that comes in the lid was a nice shape and I found it easy to get right up to the edges of my nails on both hands without having to shout for help.
The hardener smells like any normal nail varnish and it didn't take long to dry on my nails. I gave them another coat after about 15 minutes and then left them for about a good half hour to dry completely. I think they were dry way before this but as I wasn't in a hurry I decided to hang it out. Once dry I felt my nails. They did feel a bit stronger and not so bendy on the tips like they used to be. I could still feel the ridges on the bad nails so I got a nail file and rubbed them slightly and then painted again over the top. I thought may be it would be a bit like varnishing a table top or something where you fill in the gaps with varnish and then give it a soft sand down and then keep covering until it feels smooth.
I did this on and off over the day, I can't remember how many coats I had put on by the end of the day but my nails certainly looked and felt a lot better. They were all nice and smooth and felt quite strong as to how they usually feel. I kept wanting to tap my fingernails on everything so I could hear the nice sound lol as I hadn't been able to do it for a long while. It did make my hands feel more elegant and gave me a bit more confidence.
Later that night my daughter painted over the top with a nice pretty colour and I was so pleased with the results, I had lovely nails again. I would recommend this product as for the price it was a brilliant buy.
