As an ex nail tech, I can totally appreciate the damage that acrylic / fibreglass extensions or wraps can do, especially if not applied correctly, not looked after or badly removed.
I wore extensions for over 10 years so although I'm quite proud of how my natural nails survived, I really hate seeing them naked - they look so much nicer polished with whatever my shade of the moment may be.
They don't actually look that bad, but I do pay them quite a lot of attention, and I do look after them.
I manicure on average once a week, but change my polish more often :))
Here are my go to products every time
An acetone free varnish remover
Nails Inc Striptease cuticle remover
Ruby & Millie glass file (nothing wrong with this but want to upgrade to a Leighton Denny crystal file)
Leighton Denny VIP 3 in 1 buffer
Avoplex cuticle oil by OPI, this is lovely to use at night
A cuticle balm such as Figs & Rouge (review) or Lush Lemony Flutter (I only discovered this yesterday) which I use constantly throughout the day
Nails Inc Hyde Park base coat. This can also be used as a treatment.
2 coats of polish
Nails Inc Kensington Caviar topcoat
