My nails have been quite weak recently as a result of overwashing and have been prone to peeling and splitting. I had a quick look online and in Boots but most of the treatments were in the form of nail varnishes which I wasn't keen on.
I used to massage olive oil into my nails as a teenagers so I thought I'd give it another go, and I'm so glad I tried that first before buying anything, because after just 3 uses, my nails are now so much stronger, glossier and generally healthier looking.
I simply pour some olive oil onto a saucer, then use a cotton bud or my fingers to apply to my nails then massage in. I also like to rub some into my hands and give myself a mini hand massage. I normally leave it on for 15mins before washing off, but it can be left on for as long as you want to for a moisturizing treat.
If you suffer from weak peeling nails, dry hands or just fancy a pampering treat, I would definitely recommend giving this a go, as its such a cheap and effective treatment.
