Garlic on Nail Experiment Update

by aliceinloubieland

Hi everyone. It is week 3 of the garlic experiment. I must say I am impressed. Not only is the test group doing much better than the control, strength also has improved but not at an acrylic level. I expect improvement over a long period of garlic use. Anyway, I’m running short for time as of the moment so I will leave some data I’ve collected.

I also found that when any type of polish is applied to the nails, it inhibits growth. I started to wear my DIY garlic strengthening polish more often but stopped because I noticed my nails stopped growing after a few days. Maybe it depends on the body chemistry and/or genes. Well, thanks for taking the time to stop by! Have a great evening!
