  1. I Apply lotion to my nails after waking up in the morning and before bed and sleep with gloves. And yes, especially moisturise my cuticles

    I prefer shorter nails in the winter. So I chip them off and file it since dryness leads to breakage of nails.

    I make sure I take shorter baths in the winters because I dont want to overexpose my nails to water.

    I avoid dark nails paints to avoid staining of nails. I make sure there is a clear coat!

    Last but not the least. I drink lots of water!

  2. My tips to maintain healthy nails during winter :

    1. I apply adequate creams and lotions to the nails, every time I wash my hand. If I am wearing nail polish, I just massage the cream into the cuticles to help stimulate healthy nail growth.

    2. I use lotions that contain urea—a humectant that helps hold moisture in the skin.

    3. At night, I regularly rub on cuticle oil (in a pinch, olive oil also works) on my nails.

    4. And once a week, I have an intensive treatment of my nails. It involves soaking nails in lukewarm water for no more than 10 minutes, then coating them with cuticle oil and slipping on cotton gloves for at least an hour.

    Thanks for the lovely Giveaway.

  3. Get a simple manicure at home
    Heat 2 liter water then adding 2 big spoon vinegar, 1 big spoon shampoo (any brand) and 1 small spoon baking soda.
    your hand and feet soak into the water. In 15 mints
    then dry with towel using moisturer on nail tips as well as full hand and feet .
    Then apply nail paint you got a beautiful nails ever.

  13. First, make sure that you are applying a base coat while applying darker colors. And yes I do moisturise my nails and hands. Leave your nails free without applying any colors for a week before applying next color to avoid yellowish stain on nails. File your nails. Apply good quality nail paints. Use trusted brands like Elle 18 🙂

  14. Hi dear Tanya,

    its been really an unusual question for the giveaway n i wud happily like to share my view point 🙂
    The foremost quick fix for healthy nails during all seasons is not to bite your fingernails. Bcoz for sensitive nail skin, it may cause bacterial or fungus infection easily.
    And the exclusive WINTER QUICK FIX FOR NAILS is actually what I have followed from one of my mom’s habit to apply Vaseline on hands before starting bathing and then gently rubbing the nails with finger tips so that the warmth lets the moisture penetrate into nails very easily n effectively. and honestly, it works wonders & doesn’t get nails brittle 🙂

    I make a constant effort to wash hands with lukewarm water n avoid hot water. While going to bed in night, i apply a thick layer of moisturizer on my hands generously n put my hands in small polythene bags to soften the skin.

    One more effective point to be followed is to leave ur nails unpainted randomly for few days to regain natural shine of nails and always using gud quality mild nailpaint remover 🙂

  15. I live in Mumbai, and the winters here are usually not harsh. But I’ve noticed my nails become brittle in the winter, and if I’ve grown them out (which I probably have), my normally healthy nails tear at the slightest impact. So I’ve taken to warming olive oil at night and massaging not just the tips of my fingers, but my entire hands. I’ve heard of cuticle creams, but could never shrug off my laziness to actually go hunt for them. Standard petroleum jelly (Vaseline or whichever brand you prefer) suits me just fine. If you live someplace cold, you can always take extra care of your nails by leaving on a coat of strengthening nail paint at all times and wear gloves. Dipping your nails in warm water for 10-15 minutes helps, too. And there’s always the usual tag-on tips : (1)Eat healthy. (2)Drink plenty of water. (3)Get adequate sleep.

  16. Hi dear Tanya,
    lovely giveaway and love to win this…<3
    My winter quick fix for my healthy nails is…

    Keep a bottle of lotion by each sink in your home and in your desk at work. If hands are very dry, use cream instead of lotion because the former has a higher oil-to-water ratio. Wearing rubber gloves while washing dishes can prevent hands from getting dried out due to excess contact with hot water, too. To really rehab the skin on hands, use very thick hand cream right before bed and then slip on white cotton gloves — the enclosed space will help the moisturizer absorb into the skin.

  17. Again, dry and cold winter air – and washing hands more often in hot water – can take their toll on your nails. Once a week, rub cuticle oil into and around nails to keep them hydrated. Also get into the habit of rubbing moisturiser into your cuticles and nails after you wash your hands. Keep a tube of moisturiser next to the kitchen or bathroom sink as a reminder.

  18. tips
    1.If you break a nail off, file it as soon as you can, using the proper file and filing one direction only. You should keep a nail file in your handbag at all times. Do not saw back and forth on your nails. This weakens them immensely. Use as few strokes as possible to smooth the nail. Use the buffer on the free edge the check for any snags.
    2.Add sugar to oil or lotion, which may be provided in the bathroom, and massage into hands and cuticles before bed. Rinse and apply your moisturizer.
    3.”I eat yogurt every morning and the calcium helps keep my nails strong and grow faster.”
    4.To keep my nails strong, I paint the inside tip of my nail with a clear polish once every five days. That seems to keep them healthy

  19. Hi Tanya,
    I regularly massage my nails with a mix of sugar,lemon juice and olive oil. I combine a teaspoon of each and rub it into my nails and cuticles.Then wash it off with warm water.After that apply a mild lotion. That’s my home remedy to perfect nails so that I can show off during mid night mass on Christmas eve 🙂

  20. Well I start by buffing my nails with a 7 step nail buffer to smooth out ridges and have smooth even shiny nails. I dip my hands in a warm water bath and use a gentle exfoliating scrub next, I massage in a hand and nail lotion. (Currently I’m on lotus herbals cocoa glow) I dab on natural aloe gel on my nails(smother it on ). Gloves overnight.next day I give myself a manicure (remember the base coat and top coat!) Finish it up with cutical oil.Thats my typical routine for healthy nails. I have a noanail paint week once a month when I only nourish n moisturize my nails. (No nail paint obviously! )

  21. My winter quick fix for healthy nails is :-
    Step 1: Soften Up
    Get yourself an intensely hydrating hand lotion, such as Olive Oil… massage over your nails and into your cuticles.
    Step 2: Shorten and Shield
    Keep them trim and apply a coat of protective polish to protect them harsh weather
    Step 3: Wear Gloves
    To keep your nails safe from hot water and harsh dish detergent.

    Simple yet very effective procedure…dnt forget to drink carrot juice to make your nails healthy & strong 🙂

  22. During Winter we are always surrounded by hot, dry air indoors and the freezing temperatures outdoors. Such extremes can decrease the moisture level in nails leaving them dehydrated.

    My winter quick fix for healthy nails is

    • Washing dishes is just the worst activity for nails so I wear gloves when i do the work whether its cleaning, washing etc.

    • When reaching for that hand cream, I make sure to slather some extra lotion onto nails too. Than massage the cream into the cuticles to help stimulate healthy nail growth.

    • I always make certain to maintain my cuticles moisturized by applying Vaseline. It helps to stop from cracked, dry cuticles.

    • For strong hydration I soak nails in lukewarm water for just about ten minutes, then coat nails in cuticle oil and slip on cotton gloves for at least an hour. This will keep your nail soft and smooth as well.

    Winter months are rough for my skin, hair and nails but when I follow these tips I will be able to brave the evil / cruel winter months looking fabulous.

  39. Tanya

    My quick fix for healthy nails for this winter is

    1. I wear gloves while washing clothes, Gardening, dishes etc and wear gloves also while going outside and even while sleeping

    2. I always remember to use SPF before going outdoors.

    3. When applying a cream I make sure to massage some into my cuticles and nails to keep them from becoming brittle and splitting.

    4. I take a massage of olive oil on my nails. After taking a massage of olive oil, I put gloves and wait for 20 minutes i feel softness in my hands and healthy nails.

    5. I take care during filing my nails since incorrect filing can damage my nails. I also make sure that nails are completely dry before attempting to file. I file from outside corner to center in smooth strokes to avoid splitting and avoid using a metal file. For optimum results nails should be trimmed with clippers prior to filing; do not try to file long nails all the way to the desired length, file only to smooth off the area that has been clipped.

    6. I apply good nail polish and remover to my nails which doesn’t contain any chemicals in it

    7. I dip my hands in warm milk the calcium in the milk works to strengthen my nails

    8. I intake foods that have proteins and vitamins in it

    9. Drink Plenty of water its good to keep my nails healthy

  40. Quick winter tips of mine are

    • In winter i keep my nails, cuticles and fingertips moisturized so I use a cuticle cream or oil daily since I have dry skin and nails I make sure that i massage this treatment deep into the nails for maximum effect

    • I fight with winter dryness by wearing cotton gloves over just-moisturized nails while i sleep

    • I keep my nails slightly shorter and more rounded in winter so they won’t break as easily

    • To keep my nails strong and hard i apply two coats of strengthener alone or over color polish and when I am applying color to my nails i use a base coat to protect my nails and make the polish last longer since ordinary polish removers are extremely harsh on nails and make winter nail problems even worse

    • I always use a polish remover that has NO ODOR

    • In winter nail growth tends to slow down so to help speed nail growth i keep my fingers moving to boost circulation and apply a growth treatment twice daily. Massage into nails and cuticles til dry for best results

    • Important defensive is to wear gloves Not only will gloves make my nails look their best by keeping out the cold, drying air, they also act as a barrier to prevent dust, chemicals and other materials from harming their look or texture

  41. Even though it is cold outside, I try to bathe in lukewarm water so that my skin does not get damaged.

    Once a week, I apply Pond’s cold cream on my hands and wear gloves before going to sleep

    Every Sunday, I soak my nails in olive oil for 10 minutes to help them get the lost moisture.

    I apply a hand cream every time I wash my hands

    I try to avoid applying nail polish completely during the winter and if I do end up applying for some reason, I avoid the ones that contain lead and always apply a base coat to avoid yellow nails.

    I always opt for a moisturizing nail remover.

    During winters, nails tend to break faster, so I avoid growing them. I trim and buff them once in every 15 days

    I avoid cutting my cuticles, instead I push them gently and moisturize them

    Thanks for the lovely giveaway Tanya 🙂
