Nails & Cuticles

Nail it Naturally

Cracked, Dry Cuticles

Rub sweet oil into cuticles and hands, put on old cotton gloves and wear while you sleep.

Stubborn Cuticles

Use a solution of half vinegar and water or mild soap and water and soak your cuticles for a few minutes. Then apply sweet oil or pure glycerin to soften the cuticles. Then, using an orangewood stick or a toothpick wrapped in cotton, gently push cuticles back.

Weak, Brittle Nails

Put decolorized iodine on the tips of your nails every night for one week, then once a week or less often just to maintain hardness.
