With winter in full swing and Wedding Season right around the corner, proper hand care is essential. As the temperatures drop, you are probably noticing that your nails have become dull, weak and brittle.
With just a little TLC, you can be on your way from dry, brittle nails to healthy, strong nails in just ten days!
- Step One: Restore and Replenish
Wash your hands with a gentle, moisturizing soap. Once your nails are clean, restore moisture by soaking your fingers in warm water for 10-15 minutes every night for 10 days. Take this time to pamper and recharge! It will benefit more than your nails!
Quick Tip: Add slices of lemon or a few drops of lemon oil to the lukewarm water for extra hydration and brightening power! The lemon will also help remove excess cuticles!
- Step Two: Care for your Cuticles
Moisturizing your cuticles is extremely important to nail health. Dry your hands thoroughly after your daily soak and massage Jamberry’s (nut free) Cuticle Oil into your nails and around your cuticle area each day. Once the oil has fully absorbed, you need to seal in the moisture. Apply a thick moisturizing cream (I recommend Quench) to your nails and leave it on overnight. This allows the moisturizer to get into the nail and keep it hydrated. Use Jamberry’s Nourish on your hands just before you go to sleep so the moisture is fully absorbed before you wake up the next morning!
- Step Three: Protect Your Nails
Now that your have replenished, restored and rehydrated your nails, you are on the path to recovery. It is important to steer clear of stripping agents. No acetone removers. Use gloves while doing dishes, gardening, and similar activities as often as you can!
Treat your nails like jewels, not tools! Keep the edges of your nails smooth with a good file to help them grow long and strong (no snags here)!
On the 10th day, you are ready to apply lacquer! You’ll want to use a quality base coat like Jamberry’s Smoothing Base Coat or Jamberry’s Strengthening Base Coat. You will be rewarded with beautiful hands to showcase your beautiful manicure.
You’ll want to start today so that by the time you get Jamberry’s Valentine’s Day Gift Set of Lacquers (including the popular 3D Metallic Embellishments) your nails and hands (and ring) will be in showcase condition.
[Updated to add that Jamberry’s TrūShine Gel Enamel System is ideal for your wedding day and will take you straight through your Honeymoon. The new colors for Spring 2016 will be available just in time for wedding season! <3].
Be sure to periodically integrate these steps into your routine to keep your nails healthy, pretty and strong!
