|Boots Folic Acid RRP £4.49 for 180 tablets|
I know what you are all thinking and no i'm not preggers. Well not yet anyway :) I have been taking the above product Folic Acid since August, every day without fail, just to get my body in tip top condition for when it finally does happen.
However, something amazing happened, something that has never ever happened to me before. My nails started to grow and suddenly they were so strong. I mean they're not even flaking. I couldn't quite believe it. I have always used hand cream and have tried so many on the market, but none really ever worked. I then invested in the Lush Lemony Flutter and have been using this everyday on my nails for the last 4/5 months, so naturally i just assumed it was this making my nails so strong. But it was really since i started taking the Folic Acid that i noticed the difference in the strength of my nails.

It has been reported that Folic Acid is good for nail growth however no studies have ever confirmed this to be true. I can only speak from experience. I bought the Folic Acid for pre-pregnancy and have ended up with nails i have never had before. Yes i think the Lemony Flutter Butter from Lush probably does help as it moisturises my cuticles and also the fact i now drink over 2 litres of water a day, but i also believe the supplements have played a huge part in my new talons :)
I actually can't wait to paint my nails now, whereas before it was a chore and i was always too busy trying to get them to a length that looked good with polish on.
I would be interested to know if any of you lovely ladies have ever taken Folic Acid and noticed an improvement in your nails?
