SPOTLIGHT: NYC Nail Polish/ Sally Hansen Miracle Cure

As you can tell from my last post, I have just removed my acrylics :( so my natural nails will be weaker than ever :'(. I've had problems with peeling and breaking of my natural nails basically since I've first had a job. I've found a really good solution to this is Sally Hansen Miracle Cure, which helps bonds all the separating layers back together, combined with Sally Hansen Miracle Growth which strengthens and aids growth in nails. So by using these two products regularly I hope to restore my nails back to how they were :)

BUT I couldn't leave my nails without a pretty colour :) so I've used NYC In A New York Color Minute Polish in Lincoln Square Lavender. It is a gorgeous colour, gives enough coverage even though I've only used one coat and the best thing about both these products is that they're quick drying! Can't fault 'em!

REVIEW: Broadway Artificial Nail Remover.

Personally I love acrylic nails but I easily start hating them when it comes to getting them off. The fact there is generally no easy or quick way to remove them really grinds my gears. Initially the plan was to get my nails refilled, but I got lazy (and broke lol) so swiftly popped into Superdrug. I've always used Elegant Touch's artificial nail remover, but I felt to try something different so picked up Broadway Artificial Nail Remover which involves sticking your finger in and twisting, as opposed to soaking your hand.

I really expected this product to remove my whole nail within a couple of didnt. Even after soaking and twisting for over 25 minutes (the packaging says don't exceed 20mins) I still have a layers of acrylic on some nails. The endless turning and twisting made my arm ache and this product got extremly messy as the remover inside kept splashing out as I twisted and turned. The whole tub then eventually fell on the floor. Thats like £6 gone to waste...

Long story short...I wouldnt buy again -_-, nor recommend. If I was desperate to use this again, I'd simply refill the tub with the Elegant Touch Remover or do it the old way. Your best bet is to probably return to where you got them done to save time and energy.
