Keeping my cuticles moisturized is always a struggle with my dry-as-paper skin, so I’ve become a bit of a product junkie since starting to blog. So, I was excited when I got the chance to try a nail treatment I’ve heard about a LOT lately- Nail Butter!
Nail Butter was created originally by the founder’s Grandmother who worked as a dental hygienist and struggled with thin nails and dry cracking cuticles because of how often she had to wash her hands. 30 years later, the family secret recipe turned into a product that was available for purchase.
Homemade at a farm in Georgia, Nail Butter is made with lanolin, beeswax, gardenia, mustard oils, other vegetable oils, cetyl alcohol (from hydrogenated vegetable oils) and sodium tetraborate (borax). It is cruelty free and retails for $24, so it is on the pricy side- but that does include shipping and handling for customers in the US. Nail Butter typically comes in a Gardenia scent but I received the Lemongrass scent that’s currently in testing, which smells really wonderful! I love Lemongrass and it’s subtle enough once rubbed into your skin that I don’t think it would bother people who are moderately sensitive to scents.
Consistency-wise, it’s a thicker butter which I love- it feels incredibly luxurious and moisturizing on the skin. The consistency reminds me of Lush Lemony Flutter but Nail Butter feels less greasy and sinks in sooner which is a huge plus in my book. I’m completely in love with the packaging- the frosted glass jar has a nice heft to it and the cute polka-dot top would make it look adorable on anyone’s vanity table.
Overall, I can’t wait to use this on more of a long term basis! If you’d like to try Nail Butter for yourself, you can pick it up at their website or one of their stockists- you can find a list here for their US stockists and here for their international stockists.
What do you think of Nail Butter, have you tried it before? Let me know in the comments!
