The game-changer for healthy natural nails

The game-changer for healthy natural nails

Strong, healthy nails don’t just give us perfectly manicured hands or feet but confidence and self-expression.

One thing I always look at instinctively and unknowingly is the condition of one’s finger and toenails. Sometimes this can be difficult as more and more people opt for having nail extensions or nail polish.

This trend can contribute to making nails damaged, drier and brittle. But don’t get me wrong, I love wearing nail varnish myself, but it’s essential to give your nails a break in between manis and pedis.

Why taking care of your nails is so important

Nail dryness and damage are a widespread concern. When nails are not cut or filed correctly, they can become chipped, flaky and develop jagged edges. The same goes for cuticles. They can grow, thicken and split, becoming sore and painful. For many, the easiest way to deal with this problem is to cover them with nail polish or add nail extensions.

However, this solution can often end up causing more harm than good. When you cover nails that are brittle with nail varnish, shellac or gel, the chemicals in the formulations will only make your nails weaker. As a result, they will continue to deteriorate, leaving you with no choice but to have them permanently coloured.

Furthermore, when nails are weakened, they become susceptible to fungal, yeast and bacterial infections, which can then become recurrent.

Hence, I would always advise getting your nails treated for infections first before having them manicured or pedicured.

Healthy nails contribute to our wellbeing

The cosmetic appearance of your nails and cuticles matters. Not just for health reasons but to have a positive self-image. When we’re groomed, we feel better about ourselves. We have more confidence which enables us to develop a healthy relationship with our body, contributing to our wellbeing.

So, when our nails look dirty and shabby, it’s only natural that we feel self-conscious and fearful of judgement.

The reality is healthy nails are very easy to achieve.

Meet your nails’ new best friend, Callen Olive Bare To Impress Nail & Cuticle Oil

Containing a super blend of 99% naturally derived, high-grade oils and vitamins, including Vitamin C, Kukui Nut Oil and Papaya Oil, our Bare to Impress Nail & Cuticle Oil is a powerhouse dream oil for nails. It really has it all.

The ultra moisturising and brightening formula delivers instant hydration and shine, promoting strong, glossy nails and preventing them from drying, becoming brittle and breaking. You will love:

Kukui Nut Oil

Native to Hawaii and a cult favourite for its effective moisture-locking and skin-repairing properties, the kukui nut works to replenish brittle, damaged nails, delivering a boost of intense hydration to soothe, repair and promote radiance.

Papaya Seed Oil

Rich in vitamin C and carotene, papaya seed oil is a natural exfoliant, helping remove dead skin cells to stimulate new nail growth and restore nails’ healthy rosy appearance.

Stabilised Vitamin C

A potent antioxidant, also known as L-Ascorbic Acid, helps the body boost collagen production to optimal levels, preventing nails from becoming brittle and brightening their appearance with an instant natural glow.

Bare has never been sexier

We have developed Bare to Impress Nail & Cuticle Oil to praise and promote the beauty of the human body. Having your finger and toenails coloured or adding nail art is fun, and it can genuinely complement an outfit. It is also a healthy form of self-expression.

However, colouring your nails to hide them because they are not healthy will only worsen the problem.

You can obtain healthy nails with some simple daily TLC.

  1. When bathing or showering, use a special nail brush to remove any dirt from underneath your nails.
  2. Dry them well and, if needed, adjust the length and shape with a good quality nail file. Remember to file in one direction to avoid weakening the nail.
  3. Apply Bare to Impress Nail & Cuticle Oil and massage well into the nail and cuticles
  4. Moisturise your feet and hands

Your nails will look so healthy and glossy that you’ll love having them bare.

And remember, although Callen Olive’s products are formulated for legs and feet, our oil is perfectly suitable for your fingernails too.

Be yourself

Neon colours and nail art is super hot at the moment, but I do prefer naked finger or toenails. No polish for me! I personally feel healthy natural nails look better than any polish out there.

Saying that the most important thing is to be yourself and celebrate the greatness of your body by giving it a good dose of daily TLC.
