Nail after acrylics
I have had acrylics for a few years now, recently taken them off and was horrified to see the awful state my nails were in. The beds were thin, week and very red. I have kept them covered up with Sally Hansen Hard as Nails but this week have changed to Nail Tek Foundation II (1 coat) followed by 1 coat of the Intensive Therapy and I use those two as my base coat, I am also rubbing in Sally Hansen Cuticle Massage cream into my cuticles every night now.
I just have a couple of questions, instead of the Sally Hansen cuticle cream should I use Vitamin E oil (it has added wheatgerm oil in) instead every night?
Also doest this routine sound sensible and am I on the right track. The reason I had acrylics was because, although I can grow my nails quite quickly, several of them - the free edge grows inwards - I will want to have long strong healthy natural nails. But the way some of the grow made it impossible - is there anything I can do about that?
I have been keeping them short but during the summer months want to try to grow them again.
Any help gratefully received
