The only Youtube Videos you will EVER need to GROW your nails long & strong (and do them at HOME)!


WARNING: This is not a nutrition/fitness post (if that wasn't blatantly obvious).  However, since my days working foodservice jobs are over (yay, Dietitian perks!) I no longer have to go without EVER being able to paint my nails... so I'll admit, I've become a little obsessed with my nails. Just sayin'. 💅


I'm not a huge fan of big long blog posts as you've probably noticed. But, I get this question a lot since I've started growing out my nails out.  So I figured - why not make a compilation of all the videos you NEED to see to do exactly what I did :) You can thank me lateeer. 


If I can save you all from watching 100 million Youtube videos... then why the heck not?!


Oh, and P.S. - all the links to the products I use will be at the end, so be sure to check those out too :)


Now let's hop into those Youtube videos! Here they are:
