Is it me or has this winter been really cold and dry?
Well no matter what the truth is, my nails have not been at their best the last two months and it is the first time in my life that I’ve experienced brittle nails. Something that shocks me as I’ve never experienced this before even when I had super long nails.
But I do think it is because of the low temperature that has been sweeping over and my own lackluster attempt at moisturizing my hands.
Well luckily for me and a lot of other people, Isadora came out with a new nail product which specifically addresses this issue.
This product claims:
- Hardening – Making the nail stronger and more resilient.
- Ridge filler – Evening out ridges in the nail to create a smooth surface.
- Moisturizer – Reduces the loss of moisture by locking it in.
- Brightener – Optimal brightening pigments that makes the nails look fresher and healthier.
- Protector – Protects nails against harms.
It is also advertised as being perfect for use as a caring base coat under regular nail polish aswell as being perfect for those who use fake/acrylic nails.
According to Isadora one of the active beneficial ingredients in this base coat is Neonyca (celery seed extract) which is going to strengthen, moisturize and protect your nails.
This product comes housed in the regular nail polish bottle from Isadora and contains ml of product.
Isadora does include a small booklet which contains instructions in different languages.
- Apply two coats on bare nails.
- Reapply two coats every 2-3 day, remove the treatment with nail polish remover once a week.
- Continue the treatment as long as needed.
So how did this work out?
The first thing I notice about this product is how the formula is thinner than a regular nail polish formulation, it has almost a gel-like consistency and with a pinkish tint.
It also applies very thin but it needs to be mentioned that it does not run down the nail as you apply, it actually dries down very quickly compared to a regular nail polish or base coat, which makes the whole process very enjoyable and fast.
I’ve used this product for three weeks and the results have been amazing.
My nails are still not completely where I want them to be but they have become visibly stronger, there are fewer lines and breaks + my nails have stopped becoming see-through after showering or being in contact with water for a prolonged time.
I really enjoy that this product gives my nails a fresh look, it truly gives a “my-nails-but-better” effect thanks to the brightening pigments and the slight pinkish tint it has.
Lately I’ve actually dropped using my regular nail polishes and preferred to only use this on my nails. I’ve received a lot of compliments from people on how healthy my nails look.
Another reason why I like this product so much is that it is very practical for my job, which involves a lot of dirt and heavy lifting, since the formula is more gel like it does not form a lot of cracks where dirt can get through and show up.
It also lasts for four days on my nails and that is amazing since my hands are often get in touch with a lot of water, usually nail polishes cracks up or flakes off because of my job, so I’m very happy to have found a nail product that lasts and still looks gorgeous for some time.
My nails look healthier and they have become a lot stronger than they were previously.
I am really impressed by this release and Isadora just keeps killing the game for me, what happened to be honest?
This brand just keeps releasing great products that I’m falling in love with and it does shock me a bit since it’s not such a long time ago that I disliked the brand.
But back to the product.
It really has been a god send to me and I am going to continue using it in the future. It will definitely be rebought and I can absolutely recommend it to other people as it really does upheld it’s claims.
