Here at LOUD, we love all nails but if you are struggling with breakage or dry cracked skin, we have just the thing for you. Cuticle oil can increase the circulation around your nails, stimulating growth and help shield your nails and cuticles from everyday damage.
Applying cuticle oil is easy. To apply cuticle oil to your nails, put a drop on top of your nail and massage it into the skin gently. Add another drop just under your nail to help hydrate the hyponychium (the skin just under the free edge of your nail). And that’s it!
Our cuticle oils contain great ingredients that hydrate your skin, along with many other added benefits. Read below for a complete list of ingredients and their many uses.
I hope you found this useful! Check out our polishes, to top it all off. There’s something for everyone and all the stuff you do on the daily.
