Twinsie Tuesday - Nail Care Routine

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

For this week's Twinsie Tuesday post, we are to share our nail care routine.  So I'll be sharing my go to products today.

Cuticle Care
I don't use cuticle remover very often, but when I do, I use Sally Hansen's Gel Cuticle Remover.  It does a really good job.  The gel needs to be applied to the cuticle and then a cuticle pusher can be used to remove and push the cuticles back.

I use a metal Revlon cuticle pusher which I got at Target.  It works really well.  It's important that you remove the gel within 8-10 minutes because your cuticles become very sensitive if it's left on too long (trust me, I know).  You should also wash your hands with warm water and soap.

Whenever I use the cuticle remover, I use cuticle oil right away to moisturize them.  I use Sally Hansen cuticle oil with Vitamin E.

For filing, I use a regular nail file.  The one I have right now is by Soft Touch.  I'm not sure where I got it (maybe Sally's), but it works really well.  I sometimes clip my nails if I feel they are too long, but I haven't done that much lately because sometimes I end up going too short.  I also keep the nail clip around for hang nails, but not for my cuticles.

I ALWAYS have cuticle balm on hand in my purse.  Right now, I'm using Burt's Bees.  Massaging and moisturizing the cuticles is especially important for me in the winter, as they tend to become really dry.  I use cuticle balm every day.

I also use lotion and hand cream often to keep my hands moisturized.

Base Coat
My go to base coat is Rejuvacote.  It prevents staining and keeps my nails really strong.

Top Coat
My favorite top coat is Seche Vite.  Yes, it drives me crazy sometimes because it shrinks my polish, but it dries so quickly and to a gorgeous shine.  I just love it.

In addition to my daily multi-vitamins, I also take Biotin as a supplement.  Since taking it regularly, I noticed that my nails grow a lot faster and are very healthy.

So there you have it, my go to products for nail care.  What are some of the things you do for nail care?  Let me know in the comments.

  1. Whenever I think of Rejuvacote, I always think of you. Isn't that weird?

  2. I love the Burt's Bees cuticle creme! It seems to work pretty well and I just love the fresh lemon scent.

    1. Me too!! Nice and thick with a fresh smell.

  3. I keep hearing so many great things about this Burt's Bees butter.

  4. Hmmm I bought vitamins to take and was so lame that I forgot to take them after like 1 day; glad they are working for you!

    1. Yeah, you really have to be disciplined with those things.

  5. I've thought of taking Biotin but never remembered to pick it up from the store.

  6. Great products for your routine! Can't live without Seche Vite!

  7. I always forget about Sally Hansen's Vitamin E oil but I really need to repurchase it because it's so nice! I like the Burt's Bees too. I kind of fell out of love with them for a while due to false advertisement, but that balm is lovely and smells so yummy! I use it a lot!

  8. Biotin is definitely a must, it really did make a difference for me!


I love hearing from you all. So feel free to leave a comment :0). I'll read each and every one! Comments with links will be deleted!
