How you wear your nails is entirely up to you, but we personally love the look of long, strong nails. To get that aesthetic, you basically have two options: grooming your own nails or using acrylics. Both, obviously, have their benefits and their drawbacks.
The biggest difference between the two long-nail options are undoubtedly the price — acrylics can be expensive, especially if you decide to keep up on them for a while. Growing out your natural nails? That couldn’t be cheaper!
However, it’s not so easy for everyone to imagine long, natural nails and — poof! They’re grown.
Some of us have a problem with nail biting, others have brittle nails that tend to break constantly, and some just grow so SLOWLY that it seems like you’re making no progress at all.
If you’re getting frustrated with any of these natural nail hold-ups, then you’re going to love this all-natural idea from Ela Gale. Using just 3 ingredients, you can make your nails grow faster and considerably stronger. Just follow these easy steps twice a week and marvel at the results!
