Sadly, I wasn't blessed with good nails.here is a host of good, and relatively inexpensive, treatments on the market that work hard and act fast.

Even though I always keep them neat and short, they break, crack and peel.

The products that work best for me are those I can apply in a rush, which invariably tend to be clear-ish in colour and quick-drying. For myriad nail compliments, it's worth buying Sally Hansen's Complete Care 4-in-1 treatment.

You'll be amazed at how it will alleviate nail ailments in a short space of time. For growth, Sally Hansen's Miracle Growth is, much as the name suggests, rather miraculous. You'll find your nails are stronger from using it too.

For nails that have peeled or chipped, or simply look rather wretched, try Essie's Fill The Gap. It acts as a concealer to mask all the unsightliness and to resurface the nail, too.

For gentle but efficient cuticle care, both CND's Solar Oil and Dr Hauschka's Nail Oil Pen will sort you right out. They also both work to improve the appearance of the general nail area. However, as they're oils, make sure they're well absorbed before applying any varnish as it may distort the application.

Finally, we can get our hands on this much-loved beauty brand. These jumbo pencils, which are creamy, easily blended, richly pigmented and available in 17 shades, are one of their most-celebrated products.

If you're the not-so-proud owner of unruly, badly conditioned, over-processed hair and you crave soft, silky locks, this heavy duty hair mask, which contains some seriously fancy technology, will help you greatly.
