I’ve always been into making my nails look pretty. I have an unmentionable amount of nail polish. Like, one could never have too many reds, pinks, or nudes. But, when it comes to nail care, these select few are my faves!
Shea Moisture – Olive & Green Tea Hand & Body Scrub: This has been a repurchase many times which says a lot about it. Originally, it was marketed as a body scrub only. It mentioned nothing about doubling as a hand scrub but anyone who has a brain probably have used it for that purpose as well. As both a body and hand scrub, it leaves a such a lovely scent and glow to my skin and I find that I don’t have to slather on any moisturizer right after. If you haven’t tried this yet, then you’re definitely missing out. So you better go get your hands on a tub of this!
OPI – Nail Envy Nail Strengthener (Original Formula): To be honest, this is a recent find but I’ve been using it consistently and it’s given me great results. My nails are the longest and strongest it’s ever been. Prior to ever using this, my nails would split at a certain length but I haven’t seen any of that since using this magic in a bottle.
California Mango – Mango Magic Cuticle Oil: They say good things come in small packages. This tiny bottle is a hidden gem and I’m sure it goes unnoticed all the time on the shelves. I overlooked it at my local beauty supply store until I saw rave reviews about it online and I regret not picking it up sooner. It does wonders for my cuticles and it smells so yummy! If you’ve ever smelled The Body Shop Mango Body Butter, it smells almost identical to that.
LUSH – Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter: This is the mini version of Lemony Flutter from a holiday gift set I received last year but this tub is pretty much all I need as a little goes a long way. By that, I mean I use this as a hand cream as well and it doesn’t take much to cover both hands. It’s super moisturizing and makes my cuticles look good.
Ciaté – Beautiful Cuticles Cuticle Remover: I use this as a cuticle softener actually because I don’t believe in cutting or removing them. Doing so could lead to infection and that’s the last thing I would want. I enjoy using this because of its ease of application and no mess to worry about. I simply brush it on, wait a couple of seconds and push them back with my thumbnail or a cuticle pusher. Simple as that!
