I have tired hands. Working hands. Old hands. And it shows.
When I was in my thirties, someone told me that you can always tell a woman’s age by her hands. Looking at my mother at the time, I knew that was true and as I have aged, I am starting to see my own hands become thin-skinned, spotted, and knarled a bit.
I suppose I should consider myself lucky since although I have bumpy arthritic fingers (which can happen at any age), they do not hurt. That said, I have always taken pride in my nails.
I do my own manicures, topping my mid-length nails with a coat of clear nail strengthener. Side note: my toenails are pink but that is another story entirely. Sadly, though, something happened over the summer months and by September my nails were in shambles.
There were severe cracks and ridges that ran the length of the nail and as soon as there was even the tiniest bit of length, they crumbled. Knowing that my eating and nutritional intake from real food was sound, I decided to attack the problem externally using essential oils.
My nails are now back to normal with very few ridges and cracks. Even though my hands are not as attractive as they used to be, my nails look great.
Here is the nail serum I came up with. It uses just three, inexpensive essential oils and olive oil. Are you ready to have beautiful nails?
