I had a friend in high school who had the most gorgeous naturally thick nails with beautiful skin and cuticles. I assumed she must get professional manicures all the time.
As it turned out, she didn’t believe in professional manicures or storebought moisturizers because of toxic ingredients and germs. That was before natural moisturizers and organic spas became readily available so it made even more sense at the time.
When I learned her secret, I was really surprised. She said she just nourished them with natural oils from her mother’s kitchen!
With just a few drops of almond oil or olive oil massaged into your nails and cuticles every day, your nails with be looking more beautiful and nourished in no time. The oils will not only moisturize them, it will also provide a protective barrier to keep your skin’s own moisture in while providing nutrients for your skin.
Although oils can be used directly from the bottle; however, a cleaned out nail polish bottle works even better. Simply brush the oil on your nails and cuticles with the polish brush, massage in gently and you are all set. If the bottle is not dark glass, store it in a cool, dark place for best longevity.
