As any moisturizer, the role of cuticle oils is to soften and improve the appearance of the nails and skin surrounding them. Continuous use can help protect your nails against any external damage (eg. excessive use of soap water, cooking, typing or simply environmental conditions – is anyone else feeling the cold outside?) as they are rich in vitamins so that the skin and nails can rapidly absorb. These oils can quickly repair and protect dry or cracked skin around the cuticle area, deeply moisturizing the entire nail plate.
When having Gel polish manicures done, the Gel base coat penetrates the nail plate to create strength, but cuticle oil needs to be used regularly to give the nail more flexibility. Combined, the two will make your nails stronger and healthier than before.
I recommend using a small amount of cuticle oil twice a day, as massaging your nails and surrounding skin will not only make the Gel polish last longer and prevent any lifting, but it will increase circulation in the nail bed and promote a healthy growth, while keeping your nails in tip-top condition.
Your nails are jewels, so make sure they always get the right treatment!
