Pure Nail Oil Review/Results (Finally lol)

Hey folks!  I am finally getting around to posting the results of my Pure Nail Oil treatment.  Check my post here to see before pics.  For more information on Pure Nail Oil, check out the Nail Care HQ website here.  Sorry about the wonky order of the gallery photos below, couldn’t seem to figure out how to change that (click on any picture to see a larger version of it). *twitch*

I did start the pics as Day 1 is before any oil application, so my first pic here is Day 2, after one day of treatment.  I ended up doing 5 days and using more than 2 full pens of oil on my nails.  I’m already seeing a bit of improvement after just one day. 🙂

I think the results are amazing and my nails are growing well without splitting or tearing.  Mind you, my nails have never been quick to grow, so to see the growth shown below after just under 3 weeks is really good for me.  Bonus shot of my nails today immediately after removing polish.  You’ll notice that, although they are dry, they are not as dry as you might expect after having used 100% acetone.  Of course, I applied the oil right after this was taken.  But I wanted you to see how much my nails and cuticles stay hydrated even after remover was used.

Using this product for the initial intense hydration and routinely twice a day (more for whenever your nails are exposed to water) has made a drastic difference in my nails and I will recommend it to anyone I can!  Let me know if you have tried Pure Nail Oil and, if so, how were your results?  I hope that this post was helpful to you and look forward to hearing from you if you try this product in the future.

For the record, this product was purchased by me for personal use and was not supplied to me for review.

Thanks for reading – have a great day!


Time For A New Start


Tragedy strikes swatching hand!

OHHHHHH the humanity, how are we to go on????  I’ll tell you how.  With nubs.  LOL


Oh, and some Pure™ Nail Oil!   This nail oil is made with jojoba oil versus almond oil as is found in many cuticle oils.  This jojoba oil is said to more closely resemble our body’s natural oil (sebum) and is absorbed more efficiently into the keratin layers of the nail than others are.  Check out the website here for more information. 

I purchased my Pure Nail Oil some time ago, but I haven’t used it regularly (as you can tell by my gnarly nails and cuticles below).  The recommended initial 3-day Initial Hydration Treatment may not be enough for some, as I have read, and I may continue beyond that if necessary.  Every time I used the oil my nails and cuticles responded very well and I am anxious to see what the full treatment can do.

Pure™ Nail Oil - Starter Kit

The images below show the nails of both hands completely cut down due to the Middle Finger Destruction of 2013, and I have not used any cuticle oil in at least 36-48 hours.  You can see that the cuticles on my middle finger (left hand) are a complete mess and I have dryness and hangnails all over the place.  YUCK!!

Left Hand

On my left hand you will find some really horrible cuticle damage on the middle finger and some hangnails on the pinky finger.


Right Hand

On my right hand there is also some serious dryness and hangnail issues also.  I am looking forward to seeing some healthy skin and non-splitting nails to come with the oil treatment.


During this nail rehab, I will post previously-photographed-and-yet-to-be-posted polishes along with progress photos of my nail treatment and growth. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great weekend!
