How to Naturally Get Your Nails Healthy and Strong

Nourish your nails

We cannot stress enough how important it is to nourish your nails. Just like your skin, your nails need care and attention too. Using a nail serum is an easy way to hydrate and strengthen your nails. Our Nail Serum No.1 contains Grapeseed Oil, Myrtle Oil, and Frankincense Oil as its key ingredients. These oils have great cleansing properties and are incredibly nourishing. By using this serum 1-2 times a day, you will truly notice a difference in the health and strength of your nails.

Take care of your cuticles

Contrary to popular belief, you should not cut your cuticles! The nail cuticle is an important part of your physiology as it acts as a natural seal to keep bacteria and debris out of the delicate nail root. Why would we want to remove one of your body’s first lines of defense? Instead, manage your cuticles by using our Cuticle and Nail Scrub. This product is a manicure in a jar! Its mineral salts and botanical oils combine to gently polish and shine the nail while promoting overall cuticle health. It also pairs perfectly with our Cuticle Stick which will soften and moisturize cuticles to help get your nail back to their healthiest state. These two products will help you achieve beautiful, supple, and strong nails.

Keep a nail file with you for unexpected snags and breaks 

Having a nail file on hand will allow you to prevent further damage when these things happen while you’re out and about. The last thing you want is the damage to continue to get worse throughout the day. However, don’t use aggressive files. A nail’s strength comes from the many layers of compacted keratin that make up the nail plate. Sawing back and forth at the nail with a heavy file separates these layers, making the nail prone to splitting and breaking even more. We suggest using a file that has a gentle grit designed to enhance the strength of the nail rather than destroy it.  

Hydrate your hands

Protect your hands with a rich moisturizer. Our Buttercremes work wonders for dry, cracked, and split fingers and hands as a restorative treatment. We highly recommend applying nightly to allow it to work its magic.

NEVER soak your nails

This dries out your nails causing them to become brittle and prevents nail polish from adhering properly.

Stop biting or picking at your nails

This can be one of the most difficult habits for people to kick. However, it's one of the most important things you need to do to get your nails back to good health. But trust us, when you give your nails the love and attention they deserve and start seeing the results, your nail-biting habits will subside. Getting regular manicures can also help with this. No one wants to destroy a fresh mani!

Schedule regular manicures
