Summer is finally around the corner and at My Beauty Matches, we are more than ready to slip our hands out of the heavy woolen gloves. Another thing we all agree on is the fact that no matter which summery outfit we’ve got on, a set of beautifully manicured nails will complement it perfectly. Over the years, in our pursuit for envy-worthy nails, we’ve spent a considerable amount of time and money experimenting with temporary stick-ons, gel-based nails and even the overwhelming acrylics. The major lesson learnt? None of these treatments work unless the base of our nails is strong enough to handle them. The one thing no one warns you about getting big, fake nails is that once you get rid of them, its drying effect can leave the base brittle and weaker than ever before. After all the effort, hours spent at salons are wasted if all you’re left with are ragged nails that break easily.

We decided to take the matter into our own hands and look for the best beauty products that would help our nails become more resilient. Use our list of the best beauty products and you’re never going to be afraid of breaking a nail again.

Starting with the best in the business - Sally Hansen has become a household name for selling top-notch nail treatment products.

This oil contains jasmine and rose extracts which help replenish cuticles to give them a healthy and nourished look.

Nail Rehab Strengthener £9.95 is the second product by Sally Hansen that is worth investing in. The polish helps nails regain their strength by providing them with strong protection.

Burt’s Bees is another beauty brand that always manages to deliver what it promises. One of its best beauty products, Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme £6.00, is an intensive moisturising cream that effectively restores nail strength.

The biggest challenge you face when you return back to natural nails is a breakable texture which is caused due to severe dehydration. An excellent moisturiser that will help keep your hands buttery soft and at the same time tend to your cuticles is Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour Cream Intensive Moisturising Hand Cream £26.00. Its quality ingredients promise to give full eight hours of coverage to ensure skin is smoother, less flaky and more moisturized.

The last hero product on our nail-saving list is Orly's Nailtrition Nail Strengthener £14.80, which is an advanced 14-day treatment that promises to support growth in damaged nails. It contains collagen, wheat protein and bamboo extract which are actively nourishing ingredients for weakened, peeling nails.

After several aggressive nail treatments it can be a hard task to regain full nail strength, but with these best beauty tips you can have your nourished nails back. With well-built nails that never break, you'll be ready to take on the world!
