A couple of months ago, I bought a new base coat (Read: All About That Base) and thought I should compare it to my usual (Read: DL’s Hard Rock). Because it’s highly unlikely that you clicked either of those links, let me provide you with a brief recap. All About That Base CC Base Coat is a formula that contains 10 nail treatments to conceal, moisturize and strengthen while Hard Rock Base and Top Coat Nail Strengthening strengthens and protects, encouraging healthy nail growth.
Since using All About That Base, my toenails have become a bit weak with a few actually cracking. My fingernails are doing a bit better, although, I did experience a tear in one of my nails. As a result, I decided to give my nails a break by getting gel manicures on both my toenails and fingernails. That may seem counterproductive but it’s allowing me to give my nails a break for a couple of weeks.
This weekend, I plan on going back to the real MVP, Hard Rock. With Hard Rock, my biggest issue was my nails growing too fast. You guys know I’m a stan for Deborah Lippmann but All About That Base sucks. Maybe its for people who don’t need real protection, who knows… Shop both at Sephora.
I am 90% done with the new site: pinkgumbeaux.com. Although I will continue to have a presence on Blogger, it will no longer be my main blog *insert tears here* Till then, you know I need friends so like Pink Gumbeaux on Facebook and follow me on Twitter and Instagram. And, check out my last: Halloween Chic.
