Manicure is more than just changing polish. It’s about taking care of your nails, making sure they stay strong. Chillhouse’s new On the Mend Kit gives you the tools you need for easy at-home nail care.
Chillhouse On the Mend ($25) includes a crystal nail file, rubber cuticle pusher, and nail serum. Start using a nail file to shape and prepare your nails. Crystal files aka glass files are great for your nails. “The best nail file for natural nails is a glass nail file,” says celebrity manicurist Julie Kandalec. “Glass files are etched instead of glued, so they never tarnish and can last for years.”
Next, use the rubber tip to push your cuticle back. Pushing your cuticles is much better for your nails than cutting them, because it opens your fingers to bacteria and other dirt. you’re sure to have in winter,” previously shared Nina Werman, founder and brand director of Valley Nail.
Finally, it’s time to add pièce de résistance—serum. This serum nourishes your nails with a blend of jojoba seed oil, sunflower seed oil, apricot oil, vitamin E, sea buckthorn oil and aloe vera leaf extract. It hydrates dry cuticles and gives your nails a gorgeous shine.
I love the ease of this set. I’m a huge fan of gel polishes and extensions and the removal process can make my nails a little weak. Between applications, I use On the Mend to give my bare nails some much-needed nutrients. I also apply them around my nails as they are polished to keep my cuticles moisturized and healthy. Since serums are in the form of a brush, they are much easier to apply than serums or nail oils that come in a dropper bottle. And for that reason, I use it more often than ever than the dropper serums. If you are looking for a tool that can perfectly fit into your self-care routine, On the Mend is the perfect choice.
