Oh Naturale :D

Hey guys ;)
So, my mom has recently become organic crazed. I never thought it would rub off on me (I'm a girl who loves her processed cheetos & gummy bears)

But then I started taking a look at some of my favorite nail products, and started realizing that I don't know 95% of the ingredients. This freaked me out a bit.

Now, don't get me wrong. I love my little chemical-laden beauties. But that's what nail polish is for- not whitener, conditioner, & cuticle cream. So, I've decided to go the natural route for all my non-polish (or remover) nail care needs.

So far, I've discovered that extra virgin olive oil is the best thing on this planet. Honestly.. over the past two days I've used it it/on my feet, hands, cuticles, hair, & pasta and I've never felt better! It's wonderfully moisturizing, and really helps add shine and nutrients to all parts of your body. I'm going to try using lemon juice to whiten my nails tonight- I'll let you know how that works out.

What's your favorite natural nail remedy?

Coconut oil is also fabulous for skin, nails, hair, lips and stirfry.

I discovered Extra Virgin Olive Oil earlier this year and use it on my cuticles. I was told to use an old toothbrush and scrub it into my cuticles but that is too harsh.

Yeah, I agree with the toothbrush. I do use a toothbrush/evoo/vaseline on my lips though, it exfoliates very well!
