Barielle Nail Strengthener Cream

Hey dolls, along with the Barielle polishes I reviewed HERE, I also received their Nail Strengthener Cream. I was super excited to try this cream because I have been experiencing some peeling over the last 2 weeks or so and I'm hoping this fixes the situation.
The cream is supposed to help nails grow healthier and stronger while resisting splits, peels, and breaks. It can be used at least 2-3 times per day and can be applied over polish, which is a huge plus in my book. I never intentionally go around with naked nails, so I don't like treatments that require no nail polish. Speaking of naked nails, I want to show you all what I'm starting with.
These are my naked nails from about one week ago. You can see that I have some discoloration. I had previously buffed away some "peelies" earlier in the week so they aren't present in this picture. This pic makes me realize how long my nail beds really are. :) I've been using this cream daily for the last week and will continue to do so for 2 more weeks. I want to make sure I use it for the recommended amount of time so that my review is accurate. Stay tuned for how my nails are doing in about 2 weeks dolls!

Have you used this treatment before??? What do you do to avoid peeling???

Sooo glad to see you reviewing this product. I have used it for years and swear by it. Until recently, I would alternate one night this, next night my Barielle Intensive Nail Renewal oil until reading on the Barielle site that they are supposed to be used TOGETHER! The cream first and you don't need much at all..give that about 30 sec to set up, then brush on your Renewal oil and do this when you are sitting quite, watching TV not using your hands or ready for bed and can lay there with your nails not touching anything for about 5 mins if possible. You will get the best effect. I am astounded at the increase in nail strenght/growth I am getting now using them together at the same time. As for your ? about peeling - the cream and the renewal oil is what stopped my thin, peeling nails. I know there are tons of oils out there for nails and I have tried gobs of them. I still use some mid day and carry pots as well as pen kinds in my purse and use during the day in the work time when I need something faster than my night routine is. But what really works is Barielle. And while at it, pick up the BEST foot cream you ever will use. Barielle Total Care Foot Cream (pink & white jar)...go for the super large one at $29. You get your $ and then some out of that size vs. the smaller jars. Those 3 products are what brought me to Barielle in the first place and I have been using these products for a good 12 years I would say if not longer. Also, spend the $17 for the nail cream in the pot vs. the tube. Way better deal and also you get just what you need for your nails from the pot where as the tube, if you put too much on you have wasted it and cannot put it back into the tube. Thanks so much for reviewing this product - now you need the Intensive Renewal Oil and the Total Care Foot Cream - pick up at Sally's the Swedish Foot-fil (red one not the green one) to file your heals/sides or toes off before you do your foot cream. Honest, that file will last you more than 7 years. Never seen anything like it.
