Three Steps For Nourished Nails, Cuticles, and Hands

January 21, 2022 | How To, Polish

Cuticle care is the foundation for strong and healthy nails because they protect new growth from bacteria and infections. Daily exposure to water and cleaning agents can lead to hard, cracked, or torn cuticles. Colder winter months make skin even drier, aggravating existing nail and cuticle issues.

With this in mind, we’re proud to share three products to keep your nails, cuticles, and hands in tip-top shape. Our formulas nourish your cuticles and nail beds, and also soothes dry, irritated skin. Just follow these three easy steps for soft cuticles, nourished nails, and smooth hands!

Step 1: Cuticle Exfoliate

Exfoliation is a crucial component of cuticle care for two reasons. First, it helps remove excess cuticle growth on your nail plate. Secondly, exfoliation clears away any dead skin. Picture Polish’s Cuticle Exfoliate is a single product that does double duty, fulfilling both elements of cuticle exfoliation. Plus, it smells incredible, thanks to eucalyptus and lavender. Such a bonus to include a hint of aromatherapy with cuticle care!

When you’re ready to begin your journey to flawless cuticles, apply Cuticle Exfoliate around your nails. The bottle’s dropper tip keeps mess to a minimum with its precise application, in addition to remaining hygienic. Massage Cuticle Exfoliate into your skin, and let the water-based formula soak in.

Grab the included cuticle stick and gently push back your cuticles. If your cuticle is stubborn, don’t risk damaging your nail plate by adding more pressure to the stick. Simply repeat the process by adding more Cuticle Exfoliate and allowing it to soak in again. When you’re happy with the result, rinse your hands to remove any remaining product. We also recommend wiping your nail beds thoroughly with alcohol if applying Picture Curable.

Pro Tip: For extra speedy cuticle exfoliation, apply after bathing. Warm water softens cuticles, so the product gets to work immediately. Your shower or bath has already done the heavy lifting, so why not capitalize on the opportunity!

Step 2: Cuticle Conditioner

After cleaning off excess cuticle from your nail plate and exfoliating the remaining healthy cuticle, it’s time for some nourishment. The combination of coconut oil and Vitamin E reinforces the skin’s natural defensive barrier, sealing in moisture. Adding Cuticle Conditioner to your hand care routine will help keep your cuticles healthy and pliable.

Shake the bottle and then use the tip to apply to cuticles, the nail plate, and the free edge. The easy-squeeze bottle allows for controlled application, ensuring every part of your nail is covered. And remember that a little of this rich formula goes a long way!

Step 3: Dry Hand & Nail Oil

The final step in our nail, cuticle, and hand care system is our most innovative product yet! We developed Dry Hand & Nail Oil to pamper even the driest hands.

The non-greasy formula includes squalene, which retains hydration and mimics natural oil flow. The infusion of rosehip adds valuable antioxidants, while fatty acids serve as food for skin cells. This luxurious product also contains Jojoba oil for its anti-inflammatory properties, in addition to calming essential oils. Nourishing your hands and nails has never been easier or smelled better!

Apply two drops of Dry Hand & Nail Oil to the back of one hand and then rub together. Use as often as needed for stronger nails and more resilient skin.

Now that your nails, cuticles, and hands are exfoliated and conditioned, it’s essential to maintain the results. The more consistent you are in applying Cuticle Conditioner and Dry Hand & Nail Oil, the greater the benefits! They can be stored almost anywhere with their lightweight bottle and screw-top lid, which means lots of options for regular use. Here are a few easy ways to incorporate these remarkable products into your daily routine!

  • Keep with your other skincare items! Apply after washing and moisturizing your face.
  • Store the bottles in your nightstand to apply before bed, letting the luxurious scents drift you to sleep.
  • Tuck them in your purse for on-the-go conditioning!
  • Leave beside sinks where you wash your hands. After drying, apply a little and massage it in for an instant pick-me-up.
