Hello again lovely people!

I thought for a change I would share with you my simple nail care routine instead of a nail polish for day 22. There are no expensive items, and my routine might not be for everybody but it works for me and I’m happy with my nails.


My essentials are Coconut oil, nail strengthener, nail clippers, glass nail file, emery board, a buffing block, a nail polish remover and a brush, and of course cotton wool pads which I forgot to add to the photo. I start by removing my old nail polish (obvs) then if I think my nails need a trim I’ll do so with the clippers. I shall be trimming my nails right down after the month in nail polish series is ended. I then file them into shape with my glass nail file, I like a squoval (a square oval?) shape to my nails. The black emery board is just in case the nail edges need smoothing. I then take  my gorgeous coconut oil and massage a load of it into my nails, the nail bed, cuticles and don’t forget underneath the tips too if nails are long enough! I try to let it soak in for about 15 minutes. I then take the buffing block and give my nails a bit of a buff over to smooth out any ridges I sometimes get. At this point I will wash my hands, and as I’m drying them I use the towel to push back my cuticles. When my hands are dried properly I apply one coat of my MUA nail strengthener and let it dry.  Then at this point I apply my nail colour, which brings me to the brush. I use the brush dipped into nail polish remover to clean up around the edges of my nails I find it easier than cotton buds. Lastly, when my nail colour is completely dry I slather my hands in hand cream massaging into the cuticles.

I hope you enjoyed reading my manicure routine, as I said it might not be for everyone but I’ve been doing it this way for a few years and I love how my nails are looking. I never have any problems with peeling or broken nails and they are so strong and I believe it’s down to keeping them hydrated with either coconut oil or hand cream.

If you have any nail care tips that you rely on I would love to know what they are, leave me a comment below or go to my Facebook page HERE

    • Hello lovely! I use KTC Pure Coconut oil and I just pick it up from Tesco in the aisle where you find other oils, at the moment the 500g jar is on offer for £1.50. I have a white pencil too but I haven’t used it in ages, it makes the nail tips look so white when you have a natural nail.

  1. Hello, the coconut oil is so nice isn’t it. I use it for making soap but never thought about using it for anything else. Going to give it a try now like you do. Thank you x
