I do the best I can for my nails. I take biotin every night. I use base coat when I wear nail polish. I try to avoid harsh polish removers. On occasion, I would rub some argan oil on my nails and cuticles. But that’s pretty much it. Until I met Nail Butter, a game changer for my nails!
Nail Butter is a thick cream that the directions say to apply to the cuticles and nails twice a day. Because it takes a while for the butter to sink in, I must admit I’ve been applying it once a day, at bedtime. It has a wonderful lemon herbal scent that smells to me like lemon verbena. I love it. (Oh, I just looked it up, and the scent is Lemongrass and it also comes in Gardenia.) In addition to applying it to my nails, I’ve been putting it on the sides of my thumbs to help stave off the exfoliative keratolysis I get every May or June, and so far, there’s no sign of it, fingers crossed.
I wish I had taken a “before” photo of my nails and cuticles. I’ve been using Nail Butter for 3 weeks. Before using Nail Butter, my cuticles looked thick and were quite visible. Now, I can hardly see them, and they are much softer and easier to push back. Also, in spite of the ridges that I’m afraid are inevitable when you get older, my nails look and feel much healthier. Recently I wore a glitter polish with hearts, and I had to scrape off the hearts which was not so great for my nails. I put Nail Butter on and the damage was gone. Yay.
Nail Butter is all-natural, made from essential oils and lanolin. It does not contain parabens, sulfates, phthalates, artificial dyes or fragrances. It’s not tested on animals. It works by creating the optimal moisture level for nails and skin. It can also be used on toenails, and I’m going to start doing that too!
It’s made in the U.S., and comes in what I consider to be a good size jar (I can’t find the actual size but take my word for it, you get a lot). It’s priced at $24 including free shipping in the U.S., and you can get 10% off by signing up for Nail Butter’s email list on their website. In addition, by signing up, you’ll be the first to find out about discounts, giveaways etc. I just found Nail Butter on Facebook too.
