Quick haul and bad news

Just a quick haul today. Initially I didn't want to buy anything new because, let's face it - I owe too much, but it was an absolute must.

I am almost out of my Mario Badescu toner and I needed a new one as I don't have any backups so I paid a visit to the IU store. I've been meaning to try Avènes one for some time so I bought if for 14euros/200ml. And while I was there I bought a new micellar lotion. I still have some from my Avène one left, but I decided to save myself a trip in the next week. Even though I really like the one from Avène I decided to buy La Roche Posay out of curiousity whether it's better or not, about 12euros/200ml.

Then I also saw that they had a new brand on offer, Filorga, which I've read about on a blog I follow. I couldn't resist picking up the serum to try as I have some tiny expression lines. Yes I'm being neurotic. But as I had already put it on my wishlist, it wasn't an impulse buy and I could use a new serum as well. Costs 54euro/50ml.

Lastly the bad news... I was having a drink with a friend and grabbed for my footh to move it while I suddenly heard a huge scratching sound and horrible pain on my fingers. Yes, it did happen. One of my nails broke off, not really sure why and how -sad face-. It's my first breaking nail ever, so I consider myself blessed? Meanwhile I've cut the other ones a bit shorter as it looked really off. I'm also just wearing a clear coat as nail polish looks weird on me now. I hope it will grow back fast, any tips on how to stimulate it?

See you tomorrow for some more in depth stuff ;)

Oh, dikke shit! Ik hoop niet dat ik ooit mijn nagel breek :(

Evelien said...

Ja, het is absoluut geen pretje. Mijn nagels zijn nochtans supersterk, juist een verkeerde beweging zeker. Het is raar om je vingertop zo 'aanwezig' te voelen nu...

Aucchhh, dat lijkt me zooo pijnlijk! Er zijn verschillende nagelserums beschikbaar, Herôme heeft er of Koh ook wel. Waarschijnlijk gaat je nagel niet direct terug lang zijn, maar het zou de nagelgroei wel stimuleren.

I always have nail polish on my nails and I find that it protects the nails and strenghtens them. I always keep my nails short, but always having nail polish on really seems to accelerate their growth rate!

Trind nail repair heeft mij goed geholpen toen ik mijn nagel brak bij het dicht ritsen van mijn broek :')

Ann said...

Dat ziet er echt pijnlijk uit :s Ik heb soms ook een gebroken nagel, maar nooit in mijn vel. Zelf geloof ik niet echt in de werking van serums dus ik vrees dat het even wachten gaat worden. Meestal is de vingertop toch niet meer gevoelig na een week hier. Hopelijk groeit het snel, als je je nagels opnieuw lakt met een nude kleurtje valt het gelukkig minder op ;)

Evelien said...

Het deed eventjes pijn maar dag erna ging het wel, enkel mn vingertop bleef gevoelig - nu pas is dat aan het afzwakken. Voorlopig gebruik ik ook Trind serum en nail repair, kom op stimulans :)

Gaby: yes I do too and mostly 2 coats, it has already saved them from some accidents - now I'm just wearing a clear coat from Trind Nail Repair

Ann: inderdaad, nude gaat ook nog net en mn vingertop is ondertussen ok
