While in New York last month, I was determined to find a Target and lose myself in there but unfortunately, no Target in Manhattan. The nearest one was in Harlem or something and there just wasn't the time to go.
However, there is always Walgreens! While browsing, I found myself face to face with a huge display of Sally Hansen nail care and polishes, much bigger than any stands I have seen in Boots or Superdrug. Usually you only tend to find Sally Hansen topcoats of strengthening base coats but in Walgreens I was amazed at all the SHADES within the ranges. In particular, the "Nailgrowth Miracle" range caught my eye.
My weak, incapable-of-growing nails have always been the bain of my life. I've been there, done that, with the false nail phase, which only really made my nails worse. I haven't worn falsies for well over a year now, I eat well etc, but unfortunately, strong nails have never been my forté.
So I picked up a bottle of the Nailgrowth Miracle in a nude-pinky shade and I have been nothing but amazed at the condition of my nails since using it. Most of my nails have tiny tips that peer above my fingertips now, and the nail feels much stronger than it ever has before. My nails rarely grow much before they start breaking,, so I am really impressed with how it's been working for me.
I'm just gutted I didn't buy a few more shades. The bottle cost me about $6 (£4) but they retail at almost £10 here in The UK which is just heartbreaking. Or even nailbreaking when you think about it. *sigh*
Anyway, next time I hop over to the States (which will be in a few months again I hope!) I will be stocking up!
