Sally Hansen Nail care products

For the past few years, I have been OBSESSED with the look of longer acrylic nails. But, I’ve never been able to convince myself to spend the money on a full set of tips only to have to keep returning to the salon for the upkeep. I’ve always had longer nail beds, but it’s always been hard to maintain the length of my nails because of their fragility. So, I’ve made it my mission to find the best nail care products to invest in the long-term strength and length of my nails. Here are my three favorites from Sally Hansen so far: 

Maximum Nail Growth Polish
When I tell you this polish is a game changer, I am NOT exaggerating. I started using this clear growth serum in March and my nails have never been longer. Like, I’m talking long enough to the point where I can tap my nails on a table and get that oh-so-satisfying tapping sound [you know the one]. I usually use this as a base coat whenever I change out my nail color, but you can also apply it every other day if you’re opting for a natural nail look!

Instant Cuticle Remover
Let’s be honest, one of the best parts of going to the salon is FINALLY taking care of those overgrown cuticles. Sure, I’ve tried to take care of my cuticles at home, but I’ve always ended up with hangnails that are more painful than pretty. But, this Sally Hansen cuticle remover has been my saving grace for at-home manicures! Just a drop of this serum instantly softens your cuticles, making it easy to either wipe away the remnants for a fresh, healthy look.

Cuticle Rehab Oil Balm
Once I figured out how to make my nails look nice, I wanted to know how to maintain it. This cuticle oil balm has become a staple in my nightly routine. I rub it over my cuticles and the surrounding area before bed and it acts as a moisturizer overnight to keep your skin hydrated. I’m not lying, I haven’t had a hangnail in MONTHS!
