Anyone following my blog regularly will have seen my ongoing posts with my updates as to how my nails have progressed since I cut and filed them back four weeks ago and replaced my regular Nail Envy base with the SpaRitual Protein Boost.
Initially I also replaced my Avoplex with SpaRitual Cuti-Cocktail Pen and Pusher. The Cuti-Cocktail pen ran out fairly quickly (I get through this type of pen dispenser very quickly no matter what the brand because of the convenience of application, I just keep using it!) I loved this oil so much that at the weekend I placed an order for two bottles of the oil which comes with a lovely pointy dropper to apply it. SpaRitual UK have free delivery and the order completed Sunday afternoon was delivered the following Tuesday (and for a genuine customer experience I placed the order using a personal email address, nothing linked up with my blog so that there could be no special treatment- not that I expect it!!!!) Comparatively speaking both products retail at similar prices to equivalent OPI products.
The Protein Boost and initial Cuti-Cocktail pen and pusher were provided for me by SpaRitual for purposes of reviewing.
So far my progress has been very good, the first few posts can be found here.
|After one week|
|After two weeks|
|After three weeks|
Now it is time to unveil after four weeks! Right at the beginning of this experiment I shared a picture of my nails when the were at their longest at the end of May, well I feel they have passed that length now. Not only have they passed that length which I wasn't expecting to do until the end of August or early September, they have grown in a lovely shape. On the May photo my nails flared out at the tips, now they have a lovely "C" curl to them and they are a great straight shape.
This simple mani was a base of Protein Boost, two coats of SpaRitual Delight, topped in the corners with a-england Merlin and some striping tape. Really simple. This beautiful pale green really inspires me to pair it with silver.
During the second week I experienced a couple of breaks, losing the corners off each thumb. I am still waiting on my thumbs catching up, but I am sure this will happen soon.
My nails are now at a length which I wouldn't normally have them, they are much longer. I am going to continue leaving them to grow so I can review the strengthener fully, I love the shape they have right now and think I'll see how I go. I like my shorties for typing, my WPM speed must have dropped as I am not used to using the pads of my fingers!
One of my lovely readers Dimana has been following my progress and invested in the same treatment for her nails, I do hope you are seeing similar pleasing results Dimana: I can't find if you have a blog, but if you do please leave or email me a link :)
Be sure to check my blog tomorrow for the upcoming SpaRitual giveaway, the prize includes Delight, the lovely green featured in this post :)

The Protein Boost and Cuti-Cocktail Pen and Pusher were sent for review by SpaRitual, I am now a total convert to the brand and cannot imagine using any other strengthener.
