I don’t know about you, but I find that during the cold months of winter, it’s not just my hands that are dry, but my nails really feel it too. One product I can’t live without to combat this is my Solar Oil by Creative Nail Design (£9.95 RRP). It’s lasted me a good couple of years already and is a lovely blend of naturally light oils and Vitamin E, which deeply penetrate into the nails and surrounding skin to really moisturise and revive dry, brittle nails. It also acts as a great finisher for when you’ve put fresh polish on as it dries it quickly and really hydrates the nail. The effects are immediate if the nails have started to dry out, and used daily it really helps prevent this happening.
The Nails Inc Vitamin E oil pen (RRP £11) is a nice ‘on-the-go’ version which is great to keep in your handbag, although the Solar Oil does feel slightly richer and the effects seem to last longer.
Secret Beauty Verdict: Even just using the Solar Oil once a week, my nails are in much better condition and stay strong.
