There are so many things that can contribute to brittle and dry nails. Your nails need as much love and attention as our skin and hair! Just like our hair and skin, our nails are made up of layers of keratin. They can become damaged from simple things such as using an acetone-based nail polish or even not wearing gloves when doing household chores. You might not even realize how much you’re damaging your nails in your day to day life.
I know that cracked and split nails aren’t exactly a confidence booster but don’t fret we can fix all your nail woes. These at-home nail treatments will have you waving goodbye to unhealthy and weak claws. You’ll be showing off your picture-perfect fingernails in no time! #NailedIt
Sally Hansen Moisture Rehab
No nail care product list is complete without mentioning Sally Hansen. After all, she did formulate the first product for nail protection! With a range of so many brilliant nail care products, I can tell you that this nail serum is no exception.
This product is a lightweight, overnight nail serum that works to refresh and replenish nails and cuticles that are dry and dehydrated. Its quick-drying formula dries clear, leaving your nails with a gorgeous glossy finish. I don’t know about you, but I think there’s something so natural and healthy looking about a shiny clear coat of polish.
Its formula contains a blend of extracts including Acai, Algae and Black Orchid, providing intense hydration to your nails and cuticles. You’ll wake up with smooth and conditioned cuticles. Plus, it’ll help strengthen your natural nails too! You can use this product on both your finger and toe nails. Make sure to apply it onto bare nails!
Nail HQ Protect & Repair Treatment
Nail HQ is known for their vegan and cruelty-free nail treatments. Their Protect & Repair Treatment will help revitalise your natural nails. If you find that your nails are prone to breaking, this product is for you!
Its luxurious formula contains Rice Protein, Soy Protein, Root Ginger and Avocado Oil to encourage healthy nail growth and soften your cuticles. This treatment can also help repair noticeable signs of nail damage. You can use this product as a base coat too! Nail HQ’s Protect & Repair Treatment contains Acrylic Resin which will shield your nail’s surface after gels, nail polish and acrylic nails. Your nails will no longer look dull and bleak!
DIOR Huile Abricot Daily Nutritive Nail & Cuticle Serum
Infused with Apricot Oil and Argon Oil, this formula will strengthen and deeply nourish your cuticles and natural nails. Another fab ingredient in this serum is Vitamin E. You’ll find that this will help transform your brittle nails as it provides antioxidant protection, promoting a longer nail bed.
I love the soft brush applicator; it makes it super easy to dispense the product onto each of your fingers. You can even gently massage this serum into your fingertips for extra hydration. My favorite part is how this serum doesn’t leave an oily residue behind, just a pretty sheen for your nails. The tube is also the ideal size to pop in your purse if you fancy treating your nails when you’re out and about. Plus, this product has a lovely and fresh apricot scent. You can also choose to apply it just before bed for overnight nail protection.
Cutex Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover
When it comes to nail polish removers, we all know and love the budget-friendly brand, Cutex. I prefer acetone-free nail polish removers as they’re much more gentle on our skin. Nail polish removers with acetone can leave you with weak, thinning nails due to stripping the natural oils in your nails! Its formula is enriched with the hydrating properties of coconut oil, helping your nails feel nourished and strong. Coconut Oil is also incredibly non-drying in comparison to nail polish removers with acetone. No need to worry about you the skin around your nails becoming dehydrated and flaky.
I love this product as it dissolves nail polish so effortlessly, coating your nails with a healthy, conditioned finish. You can use this nail polish remover on natural or even artificial nails.

This cream contains a range of nourishing ingredients such as Cocoa Seed Butter, Vitamin E, Sweet Almond Oil and Sunflower Oil. What more could your hands and nails want?
