At Home Nail Care
Serious regrowth like mine? Keep nails short by filing in one direction only.
If you have gel overlay & brittle nails underneath (like mine!) leave the gel on the nail & rub a little olive or coconut oil on the cuticle nightly to give the natural nail some TLC & much needed moisture. That way when the gel has grown out, your natural nail won’t be as weak or brittle. Solar oil is also fantastic but not everyone has a stash!
DO NOT PEEL OR PICK OFF GEL POLISH as this will seriously damage the nail underneath & lift it from the nail bed.
You can also soak off gel polish at home by soaking cotton wool in acetone & wrapping the nail in tinfoil. Leave for 5-10 mins & gently buff it off!
During the day wear rubber gloves as much as possible when doing household jobs to protect hands & nails.
Hands dry out due to all the sanitizing & washing these days so have a tube of hand cream on the sink & apply whenever you think of it!
Neutrogena is particularly good as it’s affordable, soaks in straight away & leaves no greasy residue.
Apply hand cream every night & pop on cotton gloves to really nourish the skin.
