Rimmel Nail Nurse range, R69.95 each.
This range was launched late last year, and I’ve been testing all 4 products over the last few months. Developed to help those of us with weak nails, Nail Nurse is a range of 4 products that promise to be ‘just what the doctor ordered.’ Here’s what I thought:
Nail Nurse Nail Rescue is a 14 day hardening treatment. You apply one coat on day one, then another on day two. Leave this until day 7, when you remove it and start again. I was so super impressed with this product. My nails are prone to splitting and peeling – this really did improve the condition of my nails in just two weeks. If you have damaged nails (naturally or from artificial nails) this is an amazing product to try!
Nail Nurse Nail Base & Top Coat 5-in-1, as well as the obvious base and top coat action, promised to fill ridges, add strength, harden and protect against breaks. I found it was great for the latter, but didn’t find it as good as the Perfectionail as a base coat.
Nail Nurse Perfectionail has two uses: as a whitener or as a base coat to hide ridges. I used it for both, and it delivered as promised on both fronts. As a base coat, it helped colour stick and apply evenly, and as a whitener it delivered a beautiful natural finish.
Nail Nurse Stronger Nail is another base coat, but this one is infused with calcium and keratin to protect and strengthen the nails. It also dries is seconds, so fantastic if you’re in a hurry.
