Giving Your Nails Some TLC

Every once in a while it's important to give your nails some TLC, after all, our nails come into contact with nearly everything we touch on an everyday basis.
Giving Your Nails Some TLC
My pet hate is when I meet someone for the first time and their hands are scruffy, they've got dirt underneath their nails and they've got skin flaking off; not attractive at all. Spending time on your skin, cuticles and nails takes minimal time and they look a million times better once sorted.

Dirty Works Manicure Set (Seems to have been discontinued) 
Having a kit which includes all the essentials is ideal for travelling or taking with you in your bag when you are out and about as it means everything is in one place. I find myself constantly filing my nails from where they have slightly chipped. As well as filing them I love to use the tool which helps to remove any dirt which may be underneath the nails, I find this so satisfying!

Burts Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream £5.99
I take care of my cuticles by often trimming them then applying my favourite cuticle cream. This cream, more like a balm, hydrates the cuticles and makes them feel soft, without being sticky to touch which is brilliant. It also smells incredible, citrus lemons!

Leighton Denny Renovate Nail Repair Therapy Cream £12.00
If you are someone who constantly wears gels or acrylics then you'll know that your nails can become very brittle and sometimes can flake due to the lack of hydration and oxygen the nail is exposed to. However, this nail repair cream is an essential in helping the nail get back to a healthy, smooth state.

Body Shop Almond Hand and Nail Cream £11.00
After you've treated your nails the best way to leave them is moisturised by the use of a hand and nail cream. This one from The Body Shop contains sweet almond oil which is enriched with moisturising properties to aid the hydrating process. What I love about this cream is that you only need the smallest amount of product because it is so rich, it makes the hands and nails soft within seconds.

When was the last time you took the time out to care for your nails instead of continually painting them? I've noticed a difference in the way my nails look since I've begun to care for them, they also grow quicker! Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
