Nail Strengthener Recipe
This homemade nail strengthener oil is the best I’ve tried. It nourishes and protects weak brittle or peeling nails making them stronger and more resilient fast.
- Prep Time: 1
- Total Time: 1
- Yield: 1 1x
Simply pour the ingredients into a small bottle and shake to mix. A funnel will make the job easier.
Apply buy placing a drop on about two or three nails on each hand and rubbing on all your nails and cuticle beds. Refrain from washing hands for at least a half hour so the oil can fully absorb. If you plan to apply nail polish, wait at least an hour before applying your base coat.
Application 1-2 times per day should be ample.
*I chose to use a 2 ounce despite the recipe only making a little over an ounce. This gives room to shake the oil, and a small amount lasts quite awhile. If gifting you may wish to use a smaller bottle, make sure it has a dropper or dabber though for easy oil application.
