Day 5 Last Day- Growing my nails with Essie!

Nobody was hoping this would work, more than I was…but I must now, finally admit – I wasted $10.

 

 

Now, I am not saying anything bad about the quality of Essie in general, or even Essie “Grow Faster” – my nails are most definitely in better shape after faithfully applying Grow Faster for 5 days.  Just not longer.

I’m not even sure that I actually thought it would work, right from the start.  Because logically…the growing of the nail, happens before it starts appearing on our nail bed (I think) – so, applying product to grow your nails…while pretty much impossible… would have to happen before the nail grows out from under the cuticle area.

Another thing I heard (true or not?  I don’t don’t know for sure)…is that your dominant hand, will usually have the quicker nail growth.
Well, anyways….it was an interesting experiment.  Thank you for all of your encouragement this past week (I was sure I would get some comments about how gross my yellow nails are….but, nope!)

Here are my final pictures (please pardon the blurry photos…some little sticky fingers were touching the lens before I realized, and after the photos were taken)

Day 4 – Growing my nails with Essie!

Well, I am beginning to think that Essie Grow Faster, was a waste of $10.  My nails are finally growing (yay!) but both hands seems to be growing at the same rate.  Or maybe “27% longer” is way, way, way smaller than I thought it would be 😉

 

Here’s day 4!!

One more day to go for Essie to do it’s magic!  🙂

 

 

 

And just for comparisons sake….. day 1 vs day 4

After do a little bit of research – I came to the conclusion, that Essie “Grow Faster” was going to be my treatment of choice while growing my nails back.

Essie claims, on the box “5 day growth treatment – up to 27% longer nails in 5 days”

I have no idea how to determine whether my nails have grown 27% more, or what – but I will know if they grow more….if I use Essie Grow Faster on one hand, and nothing on the other.

So that is what I will do – and I will take pictures and let you know how it goes!

Day 3 – Growing my nails with Essie!

I am starting to think, maybe I need more calcium or something in my diet.  My nails don’t look like they have grown even the tiniest fraction.  But, I will post day 3, and a bit of a collage of days 1, 2 and 3  – maybe someone else see’s a little growth?

One problem I have noticed with my photos is, the side (right hand) with the olive oil, is too shiny in the pics to see anything.  I will try different lighting tonight 🙂

 

 

Also, I am not filing – so that is why they look extra icky.  Hubby has promised a spa trip for my upcoming bday, so I will book a “professional” manicure then 🙂
