Updated Nail Care Routine

I've accumulated a few new nail care items over the past couple of months so I've been using them to try and get my nails back to a healthy condition.

I did a Nail Care post quite a few months ago and it seemed to go down pretty well. Since then, I've been really neglecting my nails.
I paint my nails every few days but I've been really lacking on the moisturising/buffing and cuticle care. Because of this, my nails got very weak and flaky again.

Oriflame The ONE Cuticle Scrub

I'm quite lucky that I don't have the kind of cuticles that hurt to push back. They also don't really stick to my nails so I don't have to use a Nail Hoof to push them back.
This scrub is brilliant for removing any dry skin around the nail. I would really recommend this if you have a hard time with your cuticles.

It's a thin gel that contains little tiny grains and larger blue beads that exfoliate your skin. You just massage it around your nails until it disappears. Even though it's a scrub, it's very hydrating. I tend to get some cotton wool and wipe any residue off my nails before applying any polish.

MICRO Nail Electric Nail Polisher

When this arrived at my door, I was very excited but a little sceptical. I've used electric and manual buffers before so I knew to expect a smoother, shinier nail after use.

To say this is amazing is an understatement. I think I'll do a full review on this next week so I'll refrain from putting in before and after pictures but believe me when I say, you will be blown away with the results you get from this little gadget.

Oriflame The ONE Nail Shield 

This nail strengthener has improved my nails so much over the past few weeks, I can't stop going on about it. It has honestly made my nails harder and stronger. It hasn't stopped breakages all together but it has dramatically decreased the frequency of them. I have a full post on this here if you'd like to read it.

Soap&Glory Hand Food

I get terrible flare ups of dry skin on the back of my hands during the cold weather but this year, I've developed eczema on my wrists too. Once I managed to get that under control, I dug out my old faithful Hand Food. This cream soaks in very quickly and isn't greasy. Having OCD doesn't help matters either because there's a lot more hand washing during the day than there should be which just exasperates any dryness I'm already experiencing! By using this after I wash my hands, I've been keeping my hands moisturised and quite soft.

I hope by continuing with this routine, my hands and nails will be in a much better condition soon.

Let me know what products you use in your nail care routine.

Thanks for reading! :) 

some of these items were sent to me for review but all opinions are my own, as always :) x 


  1. This sounds like a great routine. I have the worst time with my cuticles so maybe I should look at Oriflame for that scrub. That Micro Nail Polishes sounds amazing, can't wait to read a full review and see before/after pics x
