...your nails need to be conditioned regularly? Think about this: how many times do you wash your hair without using a conditioner after? What about this: how many times do you wash your hands without using cuticle oil after? Your nails are made out of the same thing as your hair and they need conditioning just the same! It's difficult to try to use oil every single time you wash your hands and lotions just don't cut it so aim for twice a day to keep nails looking and feeling healthy! If you're wearing polish, you should be using a cuticle oil with carrier oils so that the oil will penetrate the polish and do your nails some good (I like Avoplex from OPI or Solar Oil from CND). Here's a quick and easy way to keep hands AND nails looking great!
(use a good moisturizing lotion like those made by Hempz OR sub a rich shea butter or other pure moisturizer. Try to avoid cheap lotions which contain mostly alcohol and are drying to the skin)
Hold your hand palm up with all fingers bent inwards towards your palm. (Just like how I take my pics!!) Now swipe or drop cuticle oil over all your fingers and your thumb. Using the tip of your thumbs, work the cuticle oil into your fingers (remember this is for your nails AND the skin around them so be sure to include all of it!). Then use your finger tips to rub the oil into your thumb. Your hands should never leave the position they're in while your doing this!! Continue for a few minutes until most of the oil is absorbed and then apply the lotion as you normally would. Voila! Beautiful nails AND hands!
