We have something different for Twinsie Tuesday today. We are telling you our nail care routines. I am pretty picky when it comes to caring for my nails and cuticles! I don't think I could ever let anyone do a mani on me ever again!
My number one tip would be to MOISTURIZE. I really feel like that is key to healthy strong nails. I take a lot of supplements and eat really healthy, so that is a good place to start as well. I know some ladies take Biotin for healthy nails, I haven't tried that yet.
About once a week when my nails are getting too long I give myself a full manicure. I start by filing the length of my nails a bit. I never use nail clippers! I use a glass file to take down the length and then a very fine grit file to seal the edges.
Next I use a cuticle remover and gently push back my cuticles (I also push my cuticles back everyday in the shower). The remover I'm using right now is SuperNail Cuticle Softener and Remover from Sally's. I rinse my hands and put on a lotion and cuticle oil right away.
And that's about it! I would say that it's the everyday care that is most important, lots of moisturizers and of course be very careful with your nails, don't use them as tools!
Looking forward to seeing what the other ladies routines are:
