My Holy Grail Cuticle Treatment Cream. This is truly INTENSIVE and it saved my cuticles from constantly being red, hard and swollen. Hang nails were at the corners of nearly all my nails. This was the result of many years using artificial nails (acrylic/gells and silk wraps).
I decided to remove the nails but wasn't prepared for my natural nail to go along with them.
When I had the nails removed, much of my nailbed went with it. I looked like the worst "BEFORE" pictures of totally ruined nails. They flaked, chipped, were soft enough to bend and peel and worse were the tears on the corner of the nail well below the finger tip. This was about 11 weeks ago. I learned to "claw" my hands when signing credit card bills, and in general. Eventually they ripped low enough to hurt. The cuticles were red, swollen and hard as tacks. I was too ashamed to even go to the nail salon. Decided to do it myself. I started off with about 3 weeks of Essie Millionails which hardened the nail and eventually the ridges filled and no more peeling. I graduated to my HG now, Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator and although my nails won't get into any nail polish commercial, they are hard, healthy, and finally growing. I also use the intensive cuticle cream and now the cuticles are soft and no more hang nails. I expect to begin my own French Manicure in about 1 month and WILL NEVER, EVER ruin my nails with those horrible acrylics/gels again!
