Have you been paying attention to the magic that happens when you get your nails did? If you have, you may have noticed the grand finale, where we rub a delicious smelling oil into your little cuticles. This is something that most people neglect when doing their nails at home, but it is one of the most essential to overall nail health, and making your mani last longer.
If we told you that you could add a couple of days to that fresh finger feeling, would you still give it a miss? How about that you can protect your polish from chips and smudges, as well as keeping your nails long and strong?
Today were talking cuticle oil, and the NAF team are here to fill you in on pretty much everything you need to know about the elixir of life for nails.
So, what is cuticle oil?
Cuticle oil is essentially a moisturiser developed specifically for cuticles and nails. It is made up of oils, and our oils come in a range of delightful scents our customers love.
Cuticle oil is normally applied with a dropper or cotton bud, but we have made ours with the gal on the go in mind. Our cuticle oils come in a handy twist and click brush, making it easy to fit in your bag, and daily routine!
Do I need to use a cuticle oil?
We’re not here to tell you what to do, in fact, we’re so punk rock we don’t think you have to do anything (horns emoji). HOWEVER there are of course great benefits that come with regular cuticle oil use.
Why should I use cuticle oil?
Without regular care, your cuticles can end up damaged, cracked, dry or broken. Cuticle oil is the go-to product to keep cuticles looking and feeling healthy. Our cuticle oil contains a combination of Vitamin E extract & Jojoba Oil. These wonder ingredients will hydrate, nourish and lock in moisture while keeping your nails (and any product on them) flexible. By massaging cuticle oil in daily, you will improve blood flow to the root of your nail (the matrix) which results in longer, stronger nails over time and soft supple cuticles.
When should I use cuticle oil?
Whenever you like! However, we recommend daily use. Keeping one of our handy twist and click brushes in your bag, at your desk or on your bedside table will help remind you. Consistency is key, and regular use of cuticle oil will help nourish your nails back to health. Our oils smell awesome too, so you might find yourself using it more often than you thought…
How do I use cuticle oil?
Oh it’s easy. Twist & click the pen then swipe a few drops on each nail and cuticle and massage into the skin to help improve blood flow. A little bit of daily luxury.
Can I just use coconut oil or mosituriser?
Sure, I guess you could if you were just looking to soften the cuticles. However, only specifically designed cuticle oil will move across you’re your gel or acrylic nails to keep them flexible and protect your manicure. Cuticle oils penetrate deeper than standard oils or moisturisers, which will only superficially soften. Our oil will toughen up your weak nails and cuticles at the same time as keeping the skin around them soft and supple.
Do I only use cuticle oil after getting my nails done?
Hell no. We love cuticle oil on fresh nails, old, nails, DIY nails, and especially naked nails. If you are giving your nails a break from acrylics or gel, we recommend going HAM with the cuticle oil. Apply a generous amount each evening, give em a good old rub and wake up to soft and flexible nails. Ideally, you would use cuticle oil after every time you washed your hands to avoid them drying out – hopefully our handbag heroes bring that dream closer to reality!
