Why do I go back to hybrid manicure after more than a year?

Last year I did a hybrid manicure regularly in a salon that worked on OPI varnishes. My favorite color was Let's be friends from the Hello Kitty collection. This mix of white and pink blends in well with the tan. With each hybrid making my nails were getting weaker, so I decided to give them up. The second reason was the rapid regrowth that appeared after a week. It is nice that my nails grow quickly, but with hybrids it is not necessarily advisable. One day I would like to learn how to make hybrids myself, this is my goal on the to-do list.

Combined hybrid manicure

When I heard about the combined method that is used with both traditional manicures and hybrids, I decided to take a chance. Combined manicure consists in pushing, cutting and milling cuticles around the nails in order to apply a hybrid under the cuticles. Thanks to this, we get the effect of the hybrid coming out from under the skins, and regrowth occurs much later than with the traditional method of making hybrids. It is worth noting, however, that a person who performs a combined manicure must be trained, because otherwise he can easily hurt us.

What is a combined manicure and how to do it?

On Thursday I'm going to a hybrid manicure for one of the beauty salons in Gdansk. I am very curious how long it will stick on my nails. And how my nails will react to hybrids - will they be in a deplorable state again. I decided that I would be tempted to hybrids again, because the traditional varnish is not durable enough and you have to be careful about it. There is no need for hybrids. Below, I am giving you minimalist hybrid inspirations, and I will show you my pattern on Insta Stories @dpblogpl.

Do hybrids damage nails?

Do hybrids damage nails?
I had hybrids made 2 times before my wedding (for hen and wedding). This is a nice option for trips or people who do not like painting nails with traditional varnishes (e.g. me). Hybrids stay on nails for about 2 weeks, and in the case of fast-growing nails regrowth may appear after a week. For me it was so, so to survive to 2 weeks I painted them with ordinary varnish (of a similar shade).
Everything was ok until I took off the hybrids. My nails were in a deplorable condition, and I never had problems with them. They broke, split and were very soft.
I thought that the issue of damaged nails was the fault of the salon in which I made hybrids, so after a few years I decided to buy hybrids again, but this time in the OPI salon. I really liked the shade from the Hello Kitty by Opi series - Let's be Friends! This color is a beautiful powder pink. I have had Hello Kitty on my nails several times (I still like it a lot).
I had 5 nails on my nails times, but I decided to take a break. I felt my nails getting softer and thinner with each application. Unfortunately, in my case, hybrids damage nails very much, and getting them to their previous state costs me too much. At the moment my nails are very broken, so I have to shorten them successively.
Now, every day, I rub linseed oil into my nails, they are filed for a short time, and for the last week I haven't painted them with anything except conditioner.
Will I return to hybrids? Maybe I will make hybrids again for Piotr's cousin's wedding in August, but I will not go back to applying them regularly. The condition of my nails is more important to me than comfort.
