I have never really been able to grow long nails (and I detest having false/chemical nails) but this December I grew awesomely strong long nails and it is all thanks to a few new products I bought.

Essence nail products

My favourite buy during the silly season was the Essence nail repairing oil with Argan oil – I think the bottle cost R40. It restores the surface of your nails and nourishes cuticles. It really is the only product you have to buy for your nails.

Then, because I know my nails break and chip I opted to get the Essence ultra strong nail hardener. I went to the beach, took care of the kid and did the general housework and had unchipped nails until the day I slammed my finger against the car door. These things happen.

There are some other products on the shelf from Essence that you should look out for:

  1. Essence studio nails fast cuticle remover
  2. Essence nail art express dry drops

The best thing about Essence, it is affordable so trying something out won’t break the bank. I am yet to be disappointed by an Essence product.

  1. I have tried the essence nail art dry drops, but didn’t dry my nails any faster at all. I’ve asked other bloggers as well, since i wanted to know if it was just me that had a bad batch, but they have also experience the same as me. So i only use it for condition my cuticles, but i wouldn’t purchase this item in the near future.
