Tuesday Talk- nail care choices


Hey everyone, hope the start of your week has been going fine! (:

We’re back with another round of TT today, and I shall talk about my nail care choices.

Compared to other polish bloggers, my nail care routine is rather simple, and I find that it is sufficient to help my cuticles and nails. I never really had much of a problem with my nails, but ever since turning to the polish world, I’ve been taking much better care of my hands, ensuring that they do not feel dry or have hangnails. Also, checking for any staining of nails has been my routine after I’ve removed polish after swatching or a mani.

Let’s move on to my nail care choices. I will talk about them in better detail. ^^

This kit was actually purchased a long time ago when I had fugly nails…and even though my mum and I use a lot of this product constantly nowadays, we are only 1/4 through the bottle as you can see in the picture above. There is also a buffer and body and hand cream(never used) but now I don’t use the buffer as it is rather old.
I definitely do feel a difference to my nails when I apply this cuticle oil, as it does hydrate my nails! ^^ Word of warning: it can be rather oily (it is cuticle oil after all) so apply sparsely and before bed is the best.

Okay, I alternate between this and the hand lotion…this was used previously for my hands to moisturize, and I love this scent. I’m not usually one for very strong scents, but this lotion clicks very well with me. Best of all, I got this free. I think it was a gift to my brother or what so he passed it to me, and I discovered it in a dusty corner of my toilet…Now it’s being lovingly used!

Honestly, I did not know this consisted of an age-defying formula…meh. Even though I’m 19, I still have to protect my hands from ageing and keep them looking youthful both for myself and readers. Hehee. ^^
Same story- received this for free, was in the gift with the body lotion above. I use this much more religiously than the body lotion, and I sort of use this as a cuticle cream too…it does keep my skin feeling nice and soft, and there’s a lovely light rose scent. I also massage my nails with this, as I’ve read somewhere that massaging your nails will help in circulation and keep them healthy. It doesn’t hurt to try! (:
Crabtree&Evelyn is a rather expensive brand(to me) so I’m hoping my lotions can last a long time. It does seem that way though, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed! ^^
I also just file my nails with the back of a normal nail cutter, I’ve read that it weakens your nails, but my nails are pretty strong. I also don’t file it down completely, but just to ensure that my nail is smooth(so I won’t scratch myself), and is of a nice shape.
