Winter Nail/cuticle care

A while back I had done a post about OPI Nail Envy and still to this day, I am absolutely in love with it. It has done wonders for my nails! As you know, my sister came to visit last week and I used it on her nails. A week later, she is hooked too and can’t wait for her nails to be strong and grow like mine. We got to talking and she then asked how I care for my cuticles and it got me thinking to do this post. We all care for our nails/cuticles differently so I wanted to share how I will be caring for mine this Winter.

For one my hands tend to get very dry and sometimes even cracked in the winter months. The lotion I use to stop that and to keep my hands soft is by Miracle of Aloe and it’s called Miracle Hand Repair. This stuff is seriously amazing. You only need a little and it might feel thick at first but once you rub it in and it soaks in it works wonders!

The next products are what I use for cuticle care.

I use Sally Hansen’s gel cuticle remover and Revlon brand cuticle pusher. This cuticle gel and from what I know of others, most cuticle remover gels you need to leave on your cuticles for a few moments to soften them.

I then use the flat part of my pusher and push the cuticles back and the rounded part to clean up what I’ve pushed. Finally, but not always any other clean up I use my cuticle clippers for.

Finally, and hand in hand with my lotion I use cuticle oil. Usually I use the cuticle oil first and then apply lotion. I have one at home, my Julep rollerball applicator and at work I have Sally Hansen brush on. I apply the cuticle oil and rub in, I then apply my lotion and voila, smooth hands and cuticles.

Well there you have it, that is how I care for my hands/cuticles. I do this stuff more frequently during the winter months but all year, still care for them the same.

How will you be caring for your nails, hands, and cuticles this season?

  1. Cuticle oil and a good hand lotion are a MUST, especially with the weather starting to get more brutal. I am never truly settled on a lotion for my hands because no brand is consistent for me. I use cuticle oil from Deja Vu or HaKen Essential Fragrance Cuticle Oil in Vanilla Almond. In a pinch, olive oil is just fine too. My strengthener is from Perfect Formula and moisturizes (it’s oil based) and helps my nails grow fast. The perfect hand lotion, for me, doesn’t currently exist. I need to find something soon though.
