Dry, Brittle, Peeling nails….

Unfortunatly this is what I suffer from it sounds gross, It isn’t actually as gross as it sounds (although on some it is) but it is definatly frustrating because no matter how long I stop biting my nails for they don’t grow because the tips peel which makes them weak & they either break or have to be cut down. But I think I may have found my saving grace in the shape of….

Quimeca Alemana Nail Harder


I read about this is a blog (I can’t for the life of me remember whoes) & it sounded really good so I read up on it & it sounded really good. I looked online for UK sellers but it’s ridiculously priced over here at £21 on Amazon so I tried ebay & found an international seller & managed to get it for £6.56 a bargain imo. I have now been using it just under a week & I can already tell a difference my nails are less harder & less bendy. I think I need to use it for at least a month to see if it stops the peeling but if you just suffer from soft, bendy nails I would definatly reccomend it.

Heres what it say’s about the product….

Here are my nails as from today…..



My Middle & Index fingers are by far the worst of the bunch they are the main culprits for peeling and breaking they are always my shortest nails. My index finger & pinky fingers are the best at growing & actually grow pretty well. & my thumb basically does what it wants some weeks it grows, some weeks it peels, some weeks it breaks it’s very inconsistent lol. But Fingers crossed that soon all my nails will be long & healthy 🙂

  1. I remember reading about this a while back here:
    and I thought I would like to try it but now that I see the ingredients I’m not so sure that it is actually good for your nails. It has so much bad stuff in it! I’ve been using Lush Lemony Flutter for the past several months at least once a day and my nails are growing long and strong for the first time ever. They don’t peel (if they do it’s only a tiny piece, not enough to weaken the nail). I’ve also heard Hard As Hoof
    is really good. If it’s working for you then that’s really good but just seeing the ingredients makes me worry.

  2. Aww your nails are like mine. I recently blogged about how to stop biting nails. I’m growing mine too and have bitten them ever since I grew teeth! Mine split, peel and bend, so I’m using Boot’s own strengthener which has helped, but not a lot. Might give this one a go! It sounds good 🙂
