This is the end of week 10 of the 10 week series for the ASK Cosmetics’ “Ultimate Bare Naked Nail Challenge”. For information about why I started this and details of my nail conditions check out my “The Start” post.
I saw continued positive progress and feel like these 10 weeks have really been worth it. I’ve had ups and downs. I still have a really funny looking cuticle on my right pointer finger – but all in all my cuticles are receding, I am experiencing half as many hang nails, and my fingernails are 10x stronger than they were before (this was NOT measured scientifically). I am going to continue the TIPS products for the long term. I know my nails are not perfect like some of the ladies out there – but this was only 10 weeks and some of the results may not be visible for 6-12 months – so I’m good with what progress I have made.
I can now paint my nails again – but I’ll try to keep it to every other day and have a few days off every now and again. I will remain diligent with my TIPS application (to the cuticle only when I’m wearing polish) and filing my nails (again hard to do with polish – but I found I can at least use the part that goes on the underside of the nail.
I plan to update you all in a few months and let you know how things are going, and I’m sure you will see in the meanwhile anyway because I have SOOOOOOO many nail polishes to show off.
Ok, so here is the update!
