MVP Nail Care Products

Hey guys!


Hope your weekend is going well. Recently I posted a video on YouTube sharing my collection of nail care products. I just wanted a highlight a couple of items that I use every time I do my nails... They're inexpensive and they've improved the overall quality of my nails tremendously since I've started using them.


*********************
Vaseline Healthy Hand & Nail Lotion



-I use this lotion as the first step of my manicure (after removing old nail polish). It seems nail polish remover can dry your hands & fingers further- and when the weather makes the air extremely dry... you're dealing with a double whammy where dry skin is concerned. That's why I like to use this lotion- it just a great moisturizer for my hands, but is also non-greasy. You could really use it anytime- not just when you do your nails. Also- it's available in a smaller tube, which is what I have.

- According to Vaseline's website: "In 2 weeks - nails are 10x stronger"... How cool is that? It's really hard for me to guage if my nails are exactly ten times stronger- but I have definitely seen an improvement. Even if you don't paint your nails non-stop-- we can all use stronger nails!

-The full size pictured above is probably around 6 or 7 dollars, but my smaller size is around 4 dollars. Available at drugstores, and you could also pick it up on http://www.drugstore.com/


E.L.F. Nourishing Cuticle Pen




-Once again, this is a product I use every time I do my nails, but it's definitely a product you could use anytime. I like to put on the above-mentioned lotion, file or clip my nails, and then use this cuticle pen with a neat marker-like tip to push back my cuticles and moisturize them.

-It's supposed to relieve dry nails and flakey cuticles with avacado & almond oils. It's enriched with viatmins- and it just an all around good thing to apply for the health & quality of your cuticles. It really stinks when you've got great looking nails- but the cuticles look dry and uncared for. I haven't had that problem since I've started using this, in conjunction with the hand & nail lotion. It does contain oils, but it's not overly greasy... that marker tip really controls the flow of the product on your cuticles- and only a litte comes out at a time

-This only costs ONE DOLLAR on http://www.eyeslipsface.com/

  4. Emily, thank you for the hand lotion recommendation. I picked it up last week and after using it for only a few days, I see a huge difference in my hands and my cuticles. Thanks again!

  5. Interesting content.

    Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

    However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.

  6. Good information.

    I came across many queries in several forums where people have been asking for advice on the best glue that can be used on nails and that is not only strong but also safe on nails. This was the same question I had sometime back when I used to apply nail gel myself. Initially the glue I got would never hold on the way it used to when done in the salon. I then came across the nail glue being sold on gel-nails which lasts very long and is pretty easy to apply. It provides a strong bonding for my nails and also does a great job in repairing the nail tips.

    Most important of all is that this is strong glue I was actually looking out for and this is used by nail salons and nail artists for professional applications. It is available at a cheap price at gel-nails and I remember seeing it at a discount of 74% which is great. Maybe this can help if you also face problems relating to poor glue quality as I did earlier.

  9. Hi! If you (or anyone else) have been looking for the larger size of the Vaseline Healthy Hand and Nail lotion, it has been discontinued and they are only carrying the small squeeze tube. That seems like an awfully large waste of money for such a small tube, so I went online to try to find if they carried it on their website. Long story short, they show a picture of the large pump bottle but only offer the small tube. I called their customer service, and the representative said that it seemed to be a big thing that they discontinued it, and they have received quite a few calls. She also said if they get enough calls, they will bring back the larger size of this [My words] gold in a bottle.

    SO, my point in coming here is that if you and your followers love the Healthy Hand and nail lotion, then better get on the horn and give Vaseline a jingle! Lets get the big size back on the market and stop paying $4 for three ounces!
    Personally, I prefer a pump bottle to sit on the nightstand/side tables/kitchen sink.
