Believe me, I’ve tried everything to have long fingernails that don’t peel – from commercial products that claim to be nail strengtheners like Nailtique and a Colombian product Quimica Alemana, to organic polishes and eating gelatin. In my desperation, I’ve even cooked up home made remedies like infusing oil with garlic. As you can imagine, in my case, the culprit isn’t doing the dishes or heavy duty house cleaning. It’s – well, genes or whatever. So an email about new nail products was met with skepticism, but at the same time, hope springs eternal. And in this case, my hopefulness was borne out with success.
