Why Cuticle Oil Is a Must Have In Your Gel Manicures

  • 2 min read

Cuticle Oil is typically an underrated product in your gel manicure routine, but it can actually make a huge difference. It not only makes your gel manicure look amazing straight after being done, but can also help your nails to grow, improve the longevity of your gel nails and has many other benefits that we’re going to share with you too!

What is Cuticle Oil?

Firstly, what is Cuticle Oil? Our Cuticle Oil pen comes in a pen form, with a built in applicator brush. It nourishes and stimulates your nails and the skin around them, keeping them hydrated and healthy. Our Cuticle Oil comes in Blueberry and Osmanthus scents and is enriched with a highly effective blend of organic calcium, safflower oil, natural keratin and Vitamin E.

What are the benefits of Gelous Cuticle Oil?

Cuticle Oil helps with nail growth

Cuticle Oil is a crucial factor in helping nail growth. Our hands and nails go through so much on a daily basis, with use of soaps, hot water, cleaning products, and more. This can be very damaging not only to the skin on your hands, but also your nail beds. Our nails are produced by a collection of cells underneath the base of our nails, which is called the nail matrix. Applying Cuticle Oil to your cuticles and the area around them helps to encourage nail growth by keeping them moisturised and nourished. The vitamins found in it help with brittle, discoloured and dry nails - perfect for us manicure enthusiasts! Using Cuticle Oil regularly will keep your nails strong, encourage nail growth and have your fingers looking fabulous and moisturised at all times.

Cuticle Oil hydrates your hands and nails

Having your hands look manicured to perfection always helps with looking put together. There’s nothing worse than having a beautiful manicure but the skin around your nails is dry, cracked and wrinkly. Additionally, when your skin is dry and lifting due to dryness it can expose more sensitive layers of the skin, which can be painful and even cause infection! The ingredients found in our Cuticle Oil are extremely hydrating and easily absorbed into the skin leaving your cuticles feeling moisturised and healthy, which is always a win!

Cuticle Oil helps extend the life of your gel manicure

Cuticle Oil can also be extremely helpful with the longevity of your gel manicure. It prevents hangnails and and helps shrink your cuticles, allowing them to be pushed back with ease. This provides a smoother, unhindered surface for your Gel Nail Polish to adhere to. Cuticle Oil should be applied between gel manicures and during gel manicures, as hydrated cuticles means your gel manicure is less likely to chip and last longer.

We hope that this has given you some insight into the wonderful benefits of Cuticle Oil and why it is an essential part of your Gel Nail Polish routine. Whether you want to encourage nail growth, nourish your cuticles, increase the longevity of your manicure or all three, Cuticle Oil is a must. Apply it regularly and keep your fingers looking fresh, shiny and salon-quality.
