#sponsored When I said “Natural Brelynn all 2020” I meant in ALL aspects. I’m such a lover of strong healthy natural nails. I consider this to be like my BIG CHOP manicure 😂
Here’s my nail-story:
After 6 years of non stop acrylic wearing I chose to go without for the first time in 2018. For the full year I wore press on nails to replenish their health and integrity
By 2019 I was ready to start my nail journey with gel manicures and then Dip powder. Over time, my nubs started flourishing!
Once at optimum length, I got too frisky and chose to do a pink and white ombré set and the manicurist used liquid gel (😫🙅🏾♀️ that’s a big no no for natural nails, it dehydrates them and strips them of their strength)
Long story short, my nails weren’t the same after this. They were weak and fragile, but I was too stubborn to them go, adding a tip to just one nail, then two, suddenly 4 nails had broken and I knew it was time to start over.
So here we are! Fresh start. This time, I’ll be in control of my nails as I’ll be sticking to at home manicures. Thank God these expressie polishes from @essie allow me to achieve salon results at home! They’re a quick dry formula, with a first-person angled brush that makes it super easy for me to paint my nails myself
Stay tuned for nub updates both here and on my stories as we grow them back long and healthy! + if you want to see the other cute colors I got from the @essie expressie collection, check out my stories! •
