My Nail Care

For nail artists, nail care is one of the most important aspects of well manicured hands.  Your nail art could look amazing but if your nails and cuticles are a mess, it will take away from the beautiful artwork!

On this page, I will be frequently updating my nail care routine.  Here you will find my favorite tools and products to keep my nails and cuticles healthy.

January 22 - 2 Weeks

After 2 weeks, I have had substantial growth.  My nails grow fairly quickly on their own; however, I do attribute some of it to Nail Envy and constant moisturizing.  I can definitely tell my nails are stronger and healthier!  After I took this picture, I decided to go back square which required taking off quite a bit of length.  I will post again next week with the new shape.

January 15 - 1 Week

One week of growth.  I am keeping Nail Envy on my nails at all times as well as moisturizing constantly throughout the day.  I've had substantial growth for one week!

January 8 - Nub City!

On January 8 I cut down all of my nails to extreme nubs.  I had several corners that kept snapping off and honestly just needed a break from long nails!  It is very refreshing to be able to feel my fingertips again.  Over the next several weeks I will be documenting my nail growth.  

Products I Love:

1. OPI Nail Envy - this is my favorite base coat for growing strong nails.  I also believe this base coat helps combat peeling and gives a good base for polishing.  This stuff is nail crack!  If I don't have time to paint my nails, I always make sure to have Nail Envy on to protect my naked nails from water and other things. 

2.  Cuticle Glaze - my blend of oils promotes healthy nails and cuticles.  I apply Cuticle Glaze before polishing my nails and periodically throughout the day.  

3.  The Body Shop Almond Body Butter - This is currently my favorite lotion.  I use it everyday as a hand creme after I wash my hands.  The almond oil in this body butter is very moisturizing and it only takes a little bit!  This combined with my Cuticle Glaze is the perfect moisturizing duo!
