6 Natural Nail Care Tips from Essie’s Director of Education

We know you help care for your client’s natural nail health with a meticulous manicure and education. The rest is up to them. In an effort to remind your clients how to best maintain healthy cuticles, hydrated skin, and strong nails, Gino Trunzo, Essie’s director of education, has a few helpful tips you can pass along for proper winter nail care.

1. Keep skin and nails hydrated. Care for skin and cuticles with Essie’s Many Many Mani intensive hand lotion and Essie’s Apricot Cuticle Oil, several times a day. “This will prevent skin around the nails from cracking or splitting,” says Trunzo.

What do you tell clients? “After showering or bathing, coat your cuticles and nails with apricot cuticle oil and lock in the moisture by wearing cotton gloves for at least an hour, or better yet to bed!”

2. Don’t skip a strengthening base. “Protect the backside of your nails with Essie’s Super Duper Top Coat and polish the backside of nails,” says Trunzo. “It’s a simple way to make nails super-duper strong!”

3. Prevent breakage and splitting by keeping nails a shorter length during the winter. “Long nails break and snag easily on gloves, scarves, or sweaters,” says Trunzo.

4. Keep nails polished to seal in moisture.  “Use your favorite Essie top coat to help keep nails glossy and moisturized,” says Trunzo.

5. Trim and file regularly for healthier, stronger nails. “Trim nails after bathing or showering, as nails will be soft from the warm water. This promotes healthy growth.”

6. Eat foods with proper nutrition for strong hair and nails. “Eat foods containing biotin, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, Vitamin A, and zinc for optimal nail health,” says Trunzo.
