Renunail

It’s an on-going battle with my brittle nails at the moment – I know I should be oiling them like a mad thing but quite often forget. The result is that the tips can literally just ping off when you least expect it. Luckily, I haven’t lost a tip anywhere that I then can’t find it (awkward if it lands in someone’s soup) but it’s annoying, nonetheless.

The initial five shades, Pomegranante (which is the shade I’m wearing in the top pic), Marshmallow (pale pink), Graphite (grey), Cashmere (nude) and Black Plum (dark purple) are all really wearable colours. Renunail Triple Strength Nail Colour contains Keratin, Bamboo and Calcium to protect your nails and help them gather strength. It’s too early to say whether they live up to the promise, and I expect continued use is necessary, but if you’ve really got very weak nails, they’re definitely worth investigating as a way of wearing colour that will actually help the problem. My only caution is that I found them quite low in shine compared to current glossy formulas – you will need to use a top coat if you want the high shine element.

Renunail Triple Strength Nail Colour is £14 per bottle from mid-June. Oh, and a little weak nail tip from me – if you can bear to go nail colour free on holiday, your nails will thrive while you slather on sun-cream several times a day. They’ll really benefit from the constant moisturising and I’m sure they like the sun, too, although I can’t find anything to back this up!
