Manic(ure) Monday: Miracle Repair

Catrice 44 Mermaid My Day swatch

Entering a drug store in order to shop some necessities always ends in buying some not so necessary things as well. Having a voucher that needs to be redeemed only enhances this phenomenon. That's how I brought this shiny blue/green nail polish home from Germany last weekend. In fact I had been looking for a dark green nail polish since last winter but never found one that came close to my expectations. Funnily enough I seem to have forgotten the exact shade I was looking for because the Catrice "44 Mermaid My Day" which I bought here is in fact too bluish and bright. On the picture it looks even darker than it is so I'm not really satisfied with my choice. Luckily enough I also found another manicure related product which seems to be pretty helpful so far:

L'Oréal La Manicure Miracle Repair 7

I had shortly heard about the new "Nail Detox" by L'Oréal so in fact I wanted to buy that one (one of the reasons why I haven't made a manicure post in ages is that my nails were pretty damaged after all this painting). However when I saw the L'Oréal "La Manicure" range I found that the "Miracle Repair 7" would rather respond to my needs as it says to fight 7 signs of damaged nails. In fact it's not really a care but rather works like a base coat which makes your nails look brighter and more neat but also allows them to grow better and to break and split less. I only applied it this morning so I can't tell you if it works yet but I really hope that it will allow me to apply nail polish again without damaging my nails any further. If you want to I can keep you updated on this matter.
Have you tried a product from the L'Oréal "La Manicure" range yet? Which other products do you use to cure your damaged nails?


  1. That shade of nail polish is sooo freaking stunning! I love that slight tiny teal undertone to the green! It's beautiful! I personally haven't suffered much nail problems although I find that my nails cannot stay at a long ideal salon manicure length for too long without them making me feel strange!

  6. As in my job I have to use my hands a lot, therefore, my nails suffer a lot! Therefore, I could use all the help to make them healthy again! :)
    And I really like that emerald nail polish- it looks so rich and luxurious! :)
