I Feel Good.

With well-groomed nails

UPDATE November 26, 2021

I have been to Cribee Nails many times and I am still very happy with the quality and professionalism they provide. They always do their very best to make my nails as beautiful as can be. Don’t hesitate to make an appointment with them. As they are very good they also have a waiting list, please keep that in mind.

Due to severe eczema on my hands when I was working in healthcare, my fingernails are very weak. The nails split, break and they have ridges. I tried hardening nail polish, extra supplements. All without any success. My nails stayed weak and broke often.

I needed to file my nails at least once a day. To keep them in shape and to shape the broken parts. So I won’t get caught up in everything. When I first lived in Malta my chief was always going for a manicure. Through her. I discovered gel nails. But, for some strange reason, the gel didn’t want to stay put on my nails.

Often a gel nail, or nails “broke” off. After that, I went back for a repair. I stopped applying gel nails when my employer moved me from Malta to Fuerteventura. For now, I decided to stay with weak natural nails.

Gel nails again

Somewhere in 2015, I started to work with someone who was learning to become a nail stylist. And she needed “victims” to try out what she learned. I was a willing one. That was on Fuerteventura and she was really good. Although the gel still came off often.

Change to Acrylic Nails

I moved to Athens, Greece, and there I once visited a nail stylist. Who only did acrylic nails. They were beautiful and stayed put on my nails without breaking. Even if I was cleaning without gloves. In the countries I lived in afterwards, not everywhere I was able to find a nail stylist who was able to give me acrylic nails. And therefore, I often went back to natural nails. Which broke off and crumbled.

So, for some time I went back to natural nails. Searching for nail stylists who would be able to do acrylic nails in the area/country I lived in. Mainly without success. In Malta, I was having a very good one. The first time in Bulgaria I wasn’t successful. The Czech Republic? Not so much. Portugal, there I had one. Sometimes she was very good. Other times sloppy.

In Morocco I was not lucky as there I was in Lock-down the whole time. I moved on to Greece, my second time there. And then I was able to find a good nail stylist. Until we went in Lock-down there also. And now, Sofia Bulgaria again. Without a doubt, it was difficult to find one. Therefore, it took me more than 6 months, but finally, I found a great one. And I am very happy with their work on my nails!
