Winter Nail Care


My skin isn't the only thing that is super dry during winter; my nails also need help!  I've found that using this cuticle cream really keeps my cuticles from being atrociously dry.  I rub it into my cuticles when I get into bed, or whenever I think about it during the day.  It's lemon-scented and nourishes brittle nails, too.


My other favorite nail-care product is this vitamin E nail oil.  It also softens cuticles, but massaging the oil into your nails stimulates new nail growth.  After years of being a nail-biter, my nails just don't seem to want to grow very fast, so I really need this!

What do you use to keep your nails healthy?

  3. I love Burt's Lemon Butter for cuticles. I even use it on my lips sometimes (in a pinch). That lemony smell is heavenly!

  6. Totally can relate with the nail biting. I also keep polish on my nails and I have been going a year now without biting and they are getting stronger!

  8. I've got to try this out. Over the Christmas break I got a manicure with my sister and got the shelac stuff....my nails have been horrible ever since. My nails look terribly desperate, so thanks for the recommendations!

  9. Great tips! I got this "Nivea Nail Creme" in a blog swap for nail polish, and I love it. Even M uses it since he gets dry skin around his nails. It also helps moisturize my actual nails too. I'll have to try these products out. I hope YOU have a FANTASTIC Thursday!
