8 of the Best Nail Strengthening Polishes


Restore weak nails this winter with eight of the best strengthening polishes

Words Joy Montgomery

With Christmas party season in full swing, now is the time to embrace all the glamour, glitter and glossy colour that manicures offer. Yet sadly, as beauty enthusiasts will know, all this primping and priming can take a toll on your natural nails, and come January you may find they have become dry, flakey and weak. Sadly it’s the price we pay for polished paws.

Thankfully beauty brands have picked up on this problem and are now offering manicure junkies an array of nail-friendly products: everything from strengthening polishes and nail tinted moisturisers (yes, that’s right) to hard-core restoration formulas – all to give your poor nails a bit of a pick-me-up.
