4 natural treatments for my nails: Femme Actuelle Le MAG

Natural nail polish

Why ?

It contains bio-based ingredients and pigments of natural origin, from beets and sugar cane, for example. Its formula is more respectful of the nails and the environment.

How? 'Or' What ?

Apply one or two coats then use a top coat, ideally from the same range. This will prolong the hold of the varnish and enhance its shine which is sometimes a little more discreet than that of a classic lacquer.

Shopping:

The go green varnish, shade n ° 22, Yves Rocher, € 6.50.

A hydrating dissolving oil

Why ?

Acetone free and formulated with vegetable solvents derived from corn and sugar cane, it also contains moisturizing vegetable oils that remove varnish without drying out the nails. Its scent is more pleasant than that of a conventional nail polish remover.

How? 'Or' What ?

Massage the oil into the nails with a cotton ball until the polish is completely dissolved. For a 100% green manicure, use a washable cotton and reserve it for this use.

Shopping:

The dissolving oil, Even, € 16.

An organic hand cream

Why ?

Its nourishing and repairing bio-based ingredients, such as shea butter, olive oil and apricot oil are very effective in repairing and moisturizing the hands.

How? 'Or' What ?

Apply the cream before each manicure. Take care not to leave any care residue on the nails before applying the polish. Doing so might make its application more difficult and undermine its hold.

Shopping:

Organic hand nutrition ointment, La Provençale, € 4.50.

Apricot oil for cuticles

Why ?

These tiny skins that surround and protect the nails can become dry and unsightly if not fed enough. Ideally, apply apricot oil before each manicure to moisturize and soften them.

How? 'Or' What ?

Massage the oil for a few seconds on each nail with the pulp of a finger. The cuticles will then be easier to push back with a small stick and your manicure will be cleaner.

Shopping:

Apricot oil, Natessance, € 7.10.
