Lemony Cuticle and Nail Cream
I love this stuff. I love the way it feels, the way it smells and quite honestly, I am so impressed with what it does to my nails!
Enriched with vitamin D- rich Lanolin, this seals in moisture, is soothing and bacteriostatic. Mustard oil contains Omega 3, polyunsaturated fats as well as other nutrients, is anti-bacterial, is said to stimulate growth of hair and nails as well as nourish, removes dark spots and is anti-inflammatory. Biotin is a B vitamin that is said to help strengthen nails as well as hair and skin. Olive oil infused with lemon lends vitamins E and K, conditioning and moisturizing properties as well as the vitamins and scent from the lemon. Apricot oil is high in vitamin A, an easily absorbed emollient and high in Essential Fatty Acids.
I’ve posted my before and after pics below – the meta data is included to prove that these pics were taken about 1 week apart.
After 1 week:
Usage: It would probably work miracles if one were able to use it twice a day.
I am lucky if I get to use this on my nails at least once a day. Before bed, I put the cream all around my cuticles and nails as well as a little smear underneath each nail. If I could remember to use it in the mornings as well, my nails would probably grow like weeds. As it is, they’re growing much faster than they have in many, many years and they’re getting stronger. I’ve had a couple of nails that split for no reason at all – that seems to be improving slowly with this cream.
I have had to do some unusual chores – like fixing the water line on the refrigerator, changing a light fixture, digging a hole to bury a pet. The nails came through all that without any damage – which is pretty surprising considering I usually lose ALL my nails after just one of those types of chores.
