All About The Cuticles BABY 💅🏽 Go-To Product!
CUTICLES! Everyone has them, and NOT everyone takes care of them! Recently I got a beauty basket as a birthday gift and included inside was this cuticle oil. I’m being real honest and saying i’ve never been into “nail health” they get taken care of when i go to the salon every two weeks and then whatever for the rest. QUARANTINE & this whole pandemic has really made me pay attention to things i’ve never had much interest in or never had to the time to fully ingulf myself with. My nails have been a main focus for me, i’ve had to be the one to up keep the maintenance on my fingers so i’ve been able to pay attention and see what they need to make sure they look clean and healthy. I got my nails done professionally the other day for my birthday and i seen my cuticles just look so dry and so not cute, luckily i got the BLOSSOM - Cuticle Oil- Spring Bouquet
$4! My thought on the nail masks is...
Any girl who wears nail polish for a lengthy time—without letting her nails breathe between manis—will know that nails are weakened, splitting, peeling nails. I try my best to prevent it with a regular regimen of hand lotion and cuticle oil, but even that might not be enough. That's where a product like KOCOSTAR - Nail Therapycomes in. How to use: Apply it to parched nails in the form of individual finger mitts, leaving it on for 30-60 minutes. The mitts are sized from large to small for thumb to pinky, respectively, so don't mix them up and try to jam your thumb into the pinky-sized one Ingredients: A mixture of botanicals, vitamins, ceramide, milk protein, shea butter, and aloe vera (among other ingredients) promises to moisturize and strengthen nails. Result: I removed the mitts and massaged in any extra serum. My nails were noticeably healthier-looking and the dry-ish white striations were gone. But, I'd like to make it clear that Kocostar Nail Therapy is NO substitute for hand lotion and cuticle oil. It won't reverse splitting and peeling that's already happening. But it is a nice supplementary treatment at a very wallet-friendly price, and I think it'd definitely yield benefits over time.
Dos✅ and Don’ts❌ for Nail Cuticle Treatments！
Because my skin is so delicate, it's easy for my hands and nails to become dry and damaged, leading to cracking, peeling and ripping that is uncomfortable, which even led to infection. Since I realized the importance of cuticle, I started to heal it. After trying a variety of approaches, I have found some very useful tips to share with you sis who have the same nail problems as me. Dos The best way to take care of your cuticles is to keep them moisturized and then leave them alone. I'm using this one cuticle oil L'OCCITANE - Shea Nail And Cuticle Oilfor three weeks and there has been a noticeable effect. Soak our fingertips in warm water. Submerge for 20 minutes and use a soft washcloth to gently push back your cuticles. Slather on moisturizing hand cream every night, and slip on a pair of cotton gloves before you go to bed. Sleep in your gloves so that your hand cream has a chance to soak into your cuticles and heal them. Don’ts Don't use clippers or cut your cuticles, which could cause infections and more damage. Don't pick. Give your cuticles the chance to heal by avoiding pushing them or picking at them with your fingernails. Never have your cuticles removed or cut. It can cause injury and infection. Tips If you wear nail polish, always use a polish remover that's acetone free. Acetone can exacerbate cuticle damage!

Have you experienced broken nails? I have hacks to fix it! Only 5 min!
I believe that most of us have experienced unfortunate accident result in the breaking, tearing or splitting of a nail. Broken nails can be both painful and unattractive, and while you may think your only option is to cut the nail back to the quick, there's actually a nifty little beauty hack you can try, which takes less than 5 minutes to put your nail back together. What you will need: A teabag, emptied of tea leaves Clear nail polish Scissors A nail file Step #1 Using the scissors, cut out a small rectangle of fabric from the tea bag that is long enough to cover almost the whole length of your nail, and wide enough to reach both sides of the nail. Step #2 Push the broken part of your nail back into place as much as is possible, then coat the whole nail in one layer of clear nail polish. While the polish is still wet, lay the rectangle of teabag fabric over your nail, smoothing it out against the polish to enhance it adheres to both the broken part of the nail, and the the rest of your nail. Step #3 Apply another coat of clear nail polish over the whole nail and the teabag fabric. Wait for it to dry. Step #4 Us the nail file to file away the excess fabric from the tip of your nail. Step #5 The next step is the regular manicure process and apply your favorite nail polish. In order to avoid broken nails, I'd like to recommend a curticle oil to you guys which is my recent favorite! It's L'OCCITANE - Shea Nail And Cuticle Oil.It's about $20. THIS IS AMAZING. So worth the price, the shea butter infusion in the product is so refreshing to your nails and cuticles. It goes on greasy, but drys to a hand-cream like type of moisturized finish. I wear a lot of press-on nails when I get in drag, and this cuticle oil keeps my nails healthy and refreshed after the constant wear and tear.

Have u ever tried nail mask? Cost $7 and get rid of cutin dead skin!
Have you ever heard about Nail Mask? Today I gonna review the nail mask by BLING POP - Shea Butter Healing Nail Pack. It's made in Korea. Price: $7.00 for 10 masks. Key Ingredients: Butyrospermum Parkii, you may know it as Shea Butter, this comes from the fat extracted from the nut of the African Shea Tree. It helps to retain moisture and reduce water loss by forming a strong barrier on the surface of the skin. It also acts to condition and to reduce the appearance of rough patches and dry flakes. Packaging : Very cute, colourful packaging. Easy to tear open. Has very simple instructions on the back which after use, however, I think the instruction is too basic. Smell&Texture: Had a sweet smell typical of Shea Butter but I only smelled it briefly while applying and after removal but only if I smelled the nails. The texture feels like a thin gel and is enough to cover nail, cuticles and the skin after my knuckles. It also stayed on quite well but I kept pushing my fingers right to the edge of the masks. No irritation or tingling. Results: I kept this on for 30 minutes. After removal, I massaged the remaining fluid into my nails and skin. I did notice my finger pulps were getting slightly pruney- so I do not recommend using it for longer than the instructed time. My nails, skin and cuticles looked nourished and soft!

How I Grew My Nails Out
I loooove having long nails. I actually had acrylic nails for years and every nail tech would comment on the health and strength of my nails! Last year I decided I would start doing my gel manicures at home, hoping that the gel alone would be strong enough to maintain healthy, long nails! Well it wasn't, I would spend time doing my nails perfectly and growing them out but I'd get little tears at the edges of nails and broken nails every week! I didn't want to go back to acrylic because my nails were so much healthier without them, so I tried dip nails. It was a FAIL. Then I found builder gel! Builder gel is similar to regular gel polish, with a few exceptions: It's super strong and actually comparable to acrylic in strength. It goes on like gel polish It removes just like gel polish I use builder gel that comes in a gel polish bottle, they do have some versions that come in a pot. My favorite is the THE gel BOTTLE - White Biab Builder in a Bottle or BIAB. It comes in different shades of nude, clear and white. There is a learning curve when learning how to use it because you need to understand what nail structure is. Over applying or not applying enough can cause your nails to break! I apply at least two coats of BIAB every time I do my nails usually opting to completely remove my previous gel each time. Like acrylic it can be infilled and doesn't need to be removed! There are a few different brands that have builder gels like Orly, Luxa and Gelish! #CheriePartner

💅You can't get perfect nails without a BASE COAT
Everyone may know base coat, but not everyone realizes the importance of base coat. Base coat can strengthen nails, isolate nails from nail polish, and protect them from excessive nail polish damage. Base coat is also an important basic step for nail art. Without it, your nail art won’t be durable and the effect of coloring will not be so ideal. It will also increase the difficulty of removing the nail polish later. Base coat can be used as a stand-alone treatment or as a base coat alternative. It can be said that no base coat, no beautiful nail. It takes a lot of learning to tell the difference of kinds of base coats, because you have to choose basing on your nail types. For example, for those have soft, damaged and brittle nails, a nail strengthener is needed. OPI - Nail Envy Nail Strengthener Original Formula I’m so impressed with OPI Nail Envy Strengthener, which is a miracle product for too weak nails to break off. I bought one because of the good reviews and it worked great indeed. This base coat contains hydrolyzed wheat protein and calcium, helping build manicure ready nails that are harder, longer and stronger than ever before. It also adds protein to improve the brightness of natural nails. In order to better results, follow the instructions. 2 coats the first day followed by 1 coat every other day for a week, then take off and repeat. After about two weeks, there was a noticeable difference in the nails that had Nail Envy, the edges lifting stopped. And the nails are no longer thin and split, becoming strong enough to file them. This product is also suitable for girls who try to get longer nails, use as directed over a period of time and you can get the length before they would break or tear from being so soft. In short, I will buy and use this product for as long as it is available.
