I have a bad habit of biting my nails 😥 for a long time, my solution was to cover my nails with polish and then, to just get acrylics. But having acrylics back to back for a full year ended up making the nails underneath thin and dry! I stopped getting my nails done altogether and started taking vitamin e supplements, which did noticeably help my nail health, but I started biting my nails again! For over a year now, I’ve been able to successfully kick my bad habit and keep my nails strong and healthy by applying products topically. Here are my reviews of two of my favorite nail care products, which I use all the time and would recommend for everyone:
JĀSON - Tea Tree Nail Saver
This is great for hydrating and strengthening both cuticles and nails, but definitely targets brittle nails more. The ingredients include tons of great oils, vitamin e included! This product really did save and strengthen my nails after having acrylics back-to-back for so long. I apply this every day. If I’m in a phase where I’m wearing nail polish a lot, I’ll put it on once my polish is removed and give my nails a day or so to breathe. It has an oily texture that absorbs into the nail and skin and a little goes a long way. You can rub in the oil but I like to let it just sink in on its own for a while and then rub in any excess.
JOSIE MARAN - 100% Pure Argan Oil
I use Josie Maran because I got a free sample, but there are plenty of other brands which offer a similar product for much, much cheaper (like The Ordinary). So with that being said, get you some! Argan oil isn’t just good for nails, it has a whole host of uses and benefits. I like to use this on my cuticles/nails, dry patches on my skin (even in sensitive areas), and under my eyes when the delicate skin has been irritated from makeup/makeup removal. Argan oil is super hydrating, a nice medium weight for oils, and appropriate for all skin types.
By using these products, I’m able to keep my nails at peak health and avoid biting my nails! These are both very affordable products that anyone concerned about their nail strength & cuticles should try. Now when I’m between nail polish, I like to make sure I use these products for at least a couple days before repainting to keep my nails in good condition. #mynails #nailcare #cuticleoil
