Default My Nail Polish is Marinating!

I used about a clove of crushed garlic, and had to empty a bit of polish out...I will let it soak in about a week.....then start using, and will see how long it will take to get strong nails..will keep you posted.

oops sorry, this was from a previous post, where I saw on tv, if you put a chopped clove of garlic into clear nail polish, let it sit, it becomes this mega nail hardner..I am the test subject The smell is supposed to disapear in a few seconds after use...time will tell

Okay, here is a status report...The polish seems to have a much stronger, smell, not of the garlic, but, an enhanced acetone odor...

I coated one nail..the garlic smell, that they said would disipate quickly, was pizza-ish, upon application...and still holds a FAINT aroma of the garlic..but it's VERY faint..

What I am going to do, since they swore this worked, is, use it, then use a second coat of another clear polish.

In a few weeks I will check back with another update, "IF" this does, work, it will be great and easy...

Default Hello Trip

i've been reading the thread and was curious to know what happened next after a week? I'm really interested with the garlic effect on the nails. I really need some help with my nails too.
