The Nail Files # 1 Double Duty

Hiya Guys!

Today's Nail Files is about how to set a perfect base for ANY nail colour. Sally Hansen is a nail make which specialises in different technique nail varnishes to add strength, length, durability, colour etc etc etc. She has become a big name in my house because me and my Mother are on huge resolution to get our nails back to perfect condition.


Today I'll be discussing her double duty nail varnish. This is a base and top coat which has strengthening abilities that are beyond belief! I would always recommend putting this underneath your nail varnish and then above. This can be used simply as a nail varnish as well when you don't want loads of colour. 



I was weary that this wouldn't work but it really does. From biting my nails for as long as I can remember this has gotten them back up to heavy duty strength in less than two months of use. It lasts a long time as well because you don't need to gloop it on thick for it to work. 

My only problem with this product is that if you use it on its own, it tends to like crumble? I don't know if that's the right word, but it comes of very patchy if you leave it too it's come off itself, which is never a good look. You just need to remember that you must take this off to change nail varnishes nicely and smoothly. 

I got this one in TK Maxx for £4.00 but I do know it is always in places like Boots and Super drug but tends to be more expensive. So if you can check in TK Maxx or places first, you might get lucky.

Have you guys tried Sally Hansen before? Do you bite your nails?
