I’ve always been hard on my nails, but the past few months have been ridiculous. I decided grow a sunflower garden in my backyard, and spent many hours preparing the soil, planting, weeding, watering…mostly without gloves. Yes, I know, what was I thinking?
My results: a bunch of flowers just starting to bloom, and the most raggedy, dry, thick cuticles I’ve ever seen on a human being. I’ve been trying to appreciate the blossoms and pretend the unsightly claws aren’t an issue.
Now I can give up my cuticle denial thanks to the most amazing cuticle product ever: Nail Butter ($24). This generously sized, polka-dotted jar contains cream that’s handmade from essential oils and lanolin. No added chemicals, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, artificial dyes or fragrances…everything is 100% natural, and nothing is testing on animals.
I love that Nail Butter was developed from owner Christina Cole’s secret family recipe. The Athens, Georgia native’s grandmother was a dental hygienist whose tough job took a toll on her nails. To help with this, more than 30 years ago, Christina’s father developed the blend of nourishing ingredients that became the recipe for Nail Butter. Now, thanks to Christina, we can all experience the fast improvement and long-term effectiveness of her dad’s creation.
“the most amazing cuticle product ever”
I’ve used other cuticle creams in the past and found them to be okay. They always feel nice, but never make any lasting improvement in my cuticles. This is where Nail Butter rules. Not only does it sink right in, soothing my dry digits, but the effects are visible right away and just keep getting better. I’ve been using Nail Butter for two weeks, and I’m sorry I didn’t take a before photo. Never mind the gardening damage– my cuticles look neater and healthier than they have in years!
In addition to the healing, moisturizing benefits, Nail Butter has an added bonus: scent. A cloud of lemony fragrance surrounds me as I rub the cream into my cuticles. I wanted to take my jar to work, but I know a fragrance-sensitive coworker would complain. Hey, Nail Butter, please offer an unscented version so I can use your fabulous product everywhere! In the meantime, I’m using it at home, enjoying the pampering experience, including the scrumptious scent.
Besides the Lemongrass version I tested, Nail Butter also comes in Gardenia, which I will be ordering pronto! The price includes shipping and handling to anywhere in the U.S. While I don’t suggest you dig your nails in the dirt the way I did, Nail Butter can help whatever ails your cuticles…or heels, knees, elbows — wherever you need it!
