When I was in school we weren't allowed nail varnish so we all used to buff our nails to a high shine. I don't know if it's still a thing but you could buy nail buffing "blocks" for the purpose. I think it actually worked by smoothing out any bumps/ridges so they were totally flat and reflected the light.
Nearly all nail polishes are big 3 free and most are big 5 free. Zoya is no different than most. Opi nail envy comes in polish colours. Another option is to get an IBX treatment monthly in salon and then painting them.
Thank you, it's not just ridges, they are generally weak, brittle and not very bright/healthy looking. I am taking vitamins but want to try treatments that will get to the actual root cause as well. So might give light buffing a try but need longer term solutions too.
I don't know how full of chemicals it is but I bought a Sally Hansen one (nail rehab) last week and my normally woeful nails look amazing, DH noticed yesterday and asked if I'd had them done!! It's a pale pink colour so just makes your nails look very shiny and perfect rather than looking as though you are wearing nail varnish.
