One of my New Years resolutions this year was to take better care of my nails. Sure, I paint them quite often, but I rarely protect them with a base coat or use any sort of strengthening products. I have thin, flimsy nails that often crack right at the base – ouch!
Until last week, I had done nothing this year to help my resolution, other than give my nails a break from polish all together, and let’s be honest.. that was the result of pure laziness. Then arrived the Julep Nail Growth Revitalizing System. This two-step system is designed to help you attain dramatically stronger nails and cuticles.
The cutting-edge peptides in Julep Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum stimulate keratin genes and cell proliferation to boost the growth of stronger nails, while Julep Nail Therapy strengthens and nourishes the nails with Vitamin E.
The kit contains Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum and Julep Nail Therapy Base Coat.
Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum: Specially formulated to address nails that are weak, thin or prone to ridges. The first-ever nail serum to use groundbreaking protein-peptide technology to transform the health and strength of nails. Peptides stimulate keratin genes and cell proliferation to boost strength and speed of nail growth. Visible results in two to three weeks.
Nail Therapy Base Coat: Use alone or as a basecoat for strong, beautiful nails. Hydrates and protects dry, brittle, peeling nails. Nourishes nails with Vitamin E. Dramatic results in just three days.
A nail serum is new to my routine entirely – I have started applying twice a day to the edges of my nail bed and underneath the nail as instructed. The base coat is also something that’s been missing from my collection for some time now. In addition to these two steps, I’m also becoming more diligent about using hand cream. I ordered Julep Glow On Age Defying Hand Brightener last month but only just started using it. To incorporate it into my routine and remind myself to apply it daily, I’ve placed my hand cream and The Best Pedi Creme Ever on my night stand next to my phone charger so I use it every night right before bed.
PS: I swear by The Best Pedi Creme Ever! You’ll notice a difference in your dry feet in just a few uses. I’m on my third bottle – this is one product I don’t want to go without.
I took a picture of my unsightly nails to serve as a “before” picture. They are not pretty, but it’s what I have to work with! I will follow up in a few weeks with a new picture so we can see the difference.
