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.
-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/
Thanks for stopping by my blog, and have a great week!
