Brittle Nails: Nail Polish & Chemicals

Do you ever wonder why your nails are so brittle? They seem to break on everything. Get caught on your shirt or in your hair. Then you have to cut your nails yet again.

But it makes no sense. How do my nails get so weak?


Well, let's think about this for a minute. Do you wear nail polish quite often?


I'm guessing that's a yes because that's the main reason you're here, isn't it?


Well, let me tell you something. Many chemicals lurk in that little glass of nail polish. Many different ones for various reasons.


Like that special, "It dries it 60 seconds" Well, they forgot the "due to chemicals"


Isn't that so special after all? You're sacrificing your beauty for chemicals. YAY.


But my nail polish says toxic-free? Is this what you're saying?

Well, do you truly understand what toxic-free means. Void of all chemicals and toxins.

But I'm guessing you don't know each chemical and toxin by heart? So how do you know it's completely toxin free? Just because they "claim" it be so?

Well, you have to start learning that they can claim all they want, but if you don't do your job as a customer and research these ingredients, they can fool you all they want with fancy chemicals and whatnot. But how would you know? You've never looked at the ingredients have you?

Well, ingredients are important. I mean, they are going on your skin via your nail. Your nail absorbs everything. So if you are being ignorant to what's in that little vial of paint, then maybe you don't deserve strong nails.

Yes, I am being blunt. But it's the truth.

It's time we start educating ourselves and stop doing harmful things to our bodies.

I mean, you wouldn't jump off a bride just because everyone else is doing it, would you?

Not that chemicals serve as they only problem to brittle nails but so does poor nutrition. Eating a diet lacking real live nutrients can cause brittle nails.

Now start getting a real education! Not the one they feed you through school where nothing you learn is pertinent in life. Start making the change today.

  1. Thank you! I'm glad someone's saying it. I unfortunately use toxic nail polish because it's cheap {I know I need to balance that argument with future hospital bills}, but I try to give my fingernails frequent rests, too.

    1. It's alright. I used to use nail polish all the time. But I stopped altogether a few years ago because it started doing weird things to my nails. I was actually looking into organic nail polish the other day and thought about using it every once in a great while to balance out the cost a little. That sh*t is expensive. Like $10 dollars a bottle. Oh my. That's why I just don't wear any nail polish, as of right now. lol

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
