I have really neglected my nails this past year since I started in a full-time job. My nail routine became a chore, my nails broke doing such manual work and polish tended to chip on me by 10am. I have decided to go back to basics and start a basic nail care routine again. I have started using Dollish Polish Cuticle Balm which I posted a review about last time and have also started to use Nails Inc NailKale Superfood Basecoat as a nail strengthener.
The NailKale basecoat is a green tinged base coat that when applied to the nail is clear and gives a shine and glossy finish. It contains Kale which is an antioxidant for stronger and healthier nails. To be fair I bought this as I love a gimmick product and thought why not? It contains vitamins A, C, E, F and H.
Oddly this basecoat does have a kale-y, green vegetable smell to it when you first apply it. This is something I wasn't expecting but this goes as soon as the polish is dry on the nail.
You can apply this basecoat under your regular polish or use two coats three times a week for a more intense treatment. I have decided to cut and file my nails right back and keep them naked for a while and try out this option.
In all fairness I haven't noticed a massive difference since I have started using this product but nail treatments always take forever and a day to show any real improvements. Really all that healthy goodness must be doing something and it is a much better way than drinking kale smoothies that is for sure!
