Why I love water-based nail polish & how to use it!
It is important to use cuticle oil to keep your cuticles moisturized and looking healthy. The only problem is, some types of moisturizers and oils can interfere with water based nail polish sticking to your nails. I have found a wonderful natural solution.
Jojoba oil is a plant extract that closely resembles the oil naturally occurring on human skin. And even though it is called an oil, it is actually a liquid wax. Jojoba oil can therefore be used in conjunction with water based nail polish without jeopardizing the wear of the polish.
When using jojoba oil as a cuticle oil and moisturizer with water based nail polish, keep the following in mind.
Two recommended brands of jojoba oil are Desert Essence Jojoba Oil for Hair, Skin & Scalp 4 fl oz (120 ml) and Ultrabalm from LUSH, which also contains Candelilla Wax and Rose Wax.
