Nail Care Tips From The Experts:

Caring For Your Cuticles:

Did you know that if the cuticle protecting your nail is hard, ridges will form in the nail? So how do you properly care for your cuticles to get the best looking nails?

  • Never cut your cuticles. Use a product like Trind Extra Mild Cuticle Remover to soften cuticles and then simply push them back and rub gently with a towel to remove any excess skin.
  • Trind Cuticle Repair Balsam is like liquid gold for growing healthier nails. It adds hydration back into those dry cuticles.

Growing Healthy Nails:

We all know the importance of proper diet and exercise but do you know how it affects your nail growth?

  • Drink at least 6 glasses of water a day to avoid dehydration. Dehydration can lead to splits and cracks in your nails.
  • For your healthiest nails, eat foods rich in sulfur & silicon (examples, fish & broccoli), biotin (example, whole grains), calcium (examples, milk & carrot juice), Vitamin A (example, sweet potato), Vitamin C (example, red pepper), folic acid (example, spinach), protein (example, chicken), Vitamin B12 (example, milk) and Zinc (example, beef).
  • Try to eat real food as opposed to supplements. Consult your doctor before taking any supplements.
  • Trind Moisturizing Nail Balsam and Trind Cuticle Repair Balsam can be used daily – they are like a conditioner for your nails.

Repairing Nail Damage:

Already have damaged nails? Don’t worry – there are easy ways to help repair them!

  • Tired of hang nails? You may be lacking protein and vitamin C in your diet. You can clip these hang nails away but never cut your cuticles.
  • White spots on your nails? That could mean a lack of zinc or protein in your diet.
  • Always use an acetone-free nail polish remover like Trind Extra Mild Nail Polish Remover.
  • Nails dry & discolored? This could mean a lack of vitamin B12 in your diet.
  • Dry & brittle nails? This could mean a lack of vitamin A and calcium in your diet.

Properly Caring For Your Nails:

  • Heavily perfumed lotions and hand sanitizers can cause nail damage due to the high amount of alcohol in the products.
  • When cleaning the house or doing dishes, wear rubber gloves so the cleaning products don’t break & dry out your nails.
  • Hand massages can increase circulation and stimulate quicker nail growth.
  • Take the 14-day challenge with the Trind Moist & Shiny Kit.

  • Help your hands look as fabulous as your nails with Trind Hand Repair.

Tips For A Fabulous Manicure At Home:

You don’t need to go to a salon to get a great manicure or pedicure! Here are some great nail care tips you can try at home:

  • Use Trind Extra Mild Nail Polish Remover to prepare your nail plate & to remove grease so your polish adheres better and lasts longer.
  • Use the Trind Professional Glass Nail File to give you fast & professional results.
  • Use the Trind Caring Base Coat before applying your favorite shade of polish. A base coat helps protect & maintain the strength of your nails.
  • Apply many thin coats instead of one thick coat. This will dry faster and last longer.
  • Let your nail polish dry for at least 1-3 minutes between coats.
  • Apply Trind Caring Top Coat to give your nails the nice glossy look plus it helps your look last longer.
  • Don’t forget to apply the base coat, nail polish and top coat across the nail edge too. This helps seal the ends to prevent chips.

  1. Since I have a hard time keeping nails because thin and bendable, I would like to try the Trind Keratin Nail repair kit.

  2. The nail repair for sure – I do my nails a lot and find sometimes they need a little TLC from all of the polish changes

  3. Trind Keratin Treatment for Nails Kit or whichever repair kit is best for repairing nails after chemo and radiation! Finger and toenails get brittle and even fall off during chemo and although they have come back a little my nails need serious help and I would love to grow them out and have beautiful nails!!

  4. I would also love to try the IT Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eye Liner! I’m alwayson a mission to find the perfect eyeliner!

  5. i would like to try the cuticle remover . ive always been weird with cutting them back at the salon so a liquid to do it would be much better
