Don't you feel more in control of your life when your nails look amazing? I know I do. Nail lacquer is a great way to create a polished appearance. But if you fail to invest in the proper products to keep them healthy, you’ll ultimately stunt their growth, make them brittle, and cause them to break. Ouch.
Cuticle oil is hands down one of the best ways to keep your nails in tip-top shape. The cuticle is the clear layer of skin around the base of the nail that protects new nail growth from damage and germs. Cuticle oils are usually made of fruit and nut oils and spiked with vitamins to prevent the cuticle from cracking and to condition the nail bed. Now that frequent hand-washing in the norm and hand sanitizer is overused, it’s more important than ever to invest in an oil that will keep your cuticles supple and your nails strong.
Read ahead for the cuticle oils that will bless your nails with protection and growth for every need and price point.
