I found an old picture of my newly painted nails in my iphoto gallery. It's taken roughly a year ago, and the picture to the right was taken 2 days ago, what do you think? Did I manage to grow out my nails?

They are not all as long as the ring & pinky finger but I'm getting there!

What I did to get long nails:
  • I stoped using nail polish to be able to put an oil on my nails 2-4 times/day. And to avoid using nail polish remover.
  • Put oil on your nails before and after your exposing them to water.
  • Don't overdo it! Don't file them, my biggest problem was I always did something to  my nails, filed, pushed cuticles down etc. Make up a rule i.e don't touch them for a week. Then every week file them and everything.
  • Eat vitamins! A multivitamin is fine, or vitamins for women or vitamins specifically for nails and hair.



  1. Thank you for tips! My problem is I don't like having unpainted nails but I guess I will have to give it a try and see if it makes a difference and buy some vitatims too xx

  2. Great tips. I need to follow these steps to get my nails back and hopefully they will stop peeling!


Thanks for taking the time to comment, making me super happy!
