Your hair, your face, and now even your nails have a BB cream they can use. Orly recently released the first ever BB cream specifically for smoothing, moisturizing, and adding a natural shine to your tips. In between manicures, paint it on to keep your nails looking fresh, even when they are practically nude.
Nothing strips away your health health one cotton ball at a time quite like a bottle of acetone. Now that earth-friendly beauty products are the norm, nail polish remover is finally catching up. Try out a soy-based remover to keep your nails and cuticles moisturized, while also not taking a million years to remove polish.
3. Nail Masks
Masks in general are having a big beauty moment. Something feels so good about adding some deep-moisturizing to your beauty routine — and now it's time to show the same kind of love to your cuticles with nail masks. They tend to come in the former of mini finger gloves, aka beauty finger puppets, and after 10 to 15 minutes your tips will feel refreshed and softer than ever.
OK, nail fortifying cream might just sound like a fancy way of saying hand lotion — but this stuff is so amazing you won't care what the difference is. It smells truly delicious and on top of that guarantees nail growth, strength, and conditioned cuticles.
This isn't your typical strengthening polish. Pink Formula's Pink Gel Coat has a keratin-rich formula that makes damaged nails look brighter, while simultaneously hardening and strengthening. Wear bare for optimal nail health or over a fresh manicure for a glossy sheen.
It thickens, it moisturizes, it evens out texture — and for Julep's Oxygen Nail Treatment Duo, that's only the beginning. The oxygen technology found inside prevents water from penetrating and drying nails out, while still allowing them to breathe. This leads to a stronger, healthier nail that breaks and splits way less often. The plant stem cell complex also has anti-aging benefits to reduce breakage and yellowing.
Kale is considered a superfood for a reason. Sure, it reduces your risk of heart disease — but why would you want that in your nail polish? With Nails Inc.'s Superfood Base Coat, they emphasize the iron naturally found in kale, which strengthens the nail on contact. It is also infused with Vitamins A and C which add a health dose of hydration.
