I’m on this endless cycle of a couple gel manicures in a row followed by a break in which my nails heal themselves. While I don’t think gels are necessarily bad for your nails, for some reason, my nails become super weak after a couple gel manicures. It can be a necessary evil if you are traveling or have a big event. But I just know I’ll pay for it in the end.
So at the end of June, I decided to go bare and regain long and strong fingernails. A new product was in my rotation to review so the timing couldn’t be better. Probelle was born out of founder and CEO, Leon Kohn’s concern for his mother who suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis and was on medication that caused stunted nail growth.
This two step system is comprised of two products: Touch N’ Grow and Touch N’ Grow Plus. Touch N’ Grow original formula cures and strengthens nails while the Touch N’ Grow Plus maintains healthy nails. I was intrigued by the Plus formula as it has a green shade and contains lime and garlic (two of my favorite cooking ingredients – great… now I am hungry for Vietnamese food). Touch N’ Grow whipped my nails into shape in a jiff… the peeling and weakness was remedied in a couple weeks. Touch N’ Grow Plus ensures that my nails aren’t discolored from polish and prevents bacteria growth caused by prolonged nail polish wear. And Touch N’ Grow Plus is totally transparent despite the shade in the bottle.
If you are concerned about nail strength or just want to ensure healthy nails, I can’t recommend this duo enough. These guys will be part of my at-home manicure kit permanently. Available at Pro-belle.com and Amazon.com.
