When it comes to our nails, a lot of us depend on the monthly salon visits. Whether it is to get our nails shaped or cuticles managed or to even get a nice nail paint, we trust the salons to do it all for us. But now that we're in a lockdown and can't access the salons, parlors or spas, this is the time we invest time to take care of our nails at home. Especially when it comes to our cuticles, we must pay all attention to manage them well.
Nobody likes the painful hangnails which can be protected if you maintain healthy cuticles. Hence, we're here to give you an idea of how to make cuticle oil in order to protect your nails and give it better health.
All you need is - an empty nail polish bottle, almond oil, lavender essential oil and rose essential oil.
Now, to make the cuticle oil:
You need to pour one spoon of almond oil into the empty nail polish bottle with a small funnel. Then, add 4 drops each of rose oil and lavender oil to it. You can then put the cap back on and shake it well so the oils mix well. Store it in a cool and dark place in order to maintain the concoction for a longer period of time.
Here's how you use it:
Every single time you paint your nails, you can use this oil to coat them. You can also add this as a step to care for your nails so as to avoid those annoying and painful hangnails. Once you apply your nail paint and it dries up, you can use cuticle oil brush, swipe it in a U shape around the cuticles and leave it on for 2 minutes. Then, you can gently massage each cuticle with your fingers. That's all you need to maintain good cuticle which can give you healthy nails for a long time, all at the comfort of your home.
