Typically, oils don’t hydrate, but rather help to keep moisture in the skin or nail plate. Interesting that cuticle oils applied over enhancements keep them more flexible and strong, too. Use it daily.
SolarOil by CND is my favorite. Only four ingredients, plus a little extra fragrance. Now comes in a pen. I give away the cute .25 oz. to new clients or those traveling.
Thank you! I'll definitely take a look at solar oil.
I read so many articles online and even by some beauty gurus who say to apply cuticle oil to prep the skin and nail, then remove it with alcohol, and after then you should apply gel polish. Is this true? I always thought it made more sense to apply cuticle oil as after care.
For those that don't want to use a nut oil (like almond oil in Solar Oil), Dadi' Oil from Famous Names, which also makes IBX, is a great oil. It uses avocado and EVOO along with vitamin E and jojoba oil. It is a penetrating oil like Solar Oil and it has a lovely scent.
