Wow. Garlic, huh. It doesn’t stink … even a little? Lol. I’ve been using Duri brand nail strengthener and also cuticle oil and vitamin e lotion and my nails are growing really fast all of a sudden. They do get a little peely, but I just filed them down really short and started applying this daily and they got better. I might try this. People will either think I smell awful or wonderful … of garlic. Haha.

I PICK my cuticles when I’m nervous … or bored. I do it without even noticing I’m doing it. It’s a horrible awful habbit. I cannot STOP! What should I do? I cannot figure it out. Maybe this garlic polish will help? Hmmm… 

I notice that getting a regular manicure helps, and bandaids … but I hate wearing them -only at night haha.

Vaseline helps my eyelashes be strong and grow. Only natural home remedy I’ve found.

Wow, I’ve never heard this tip before!  Good one.  My nails grow so quickly, I’m usually worried about filing them down instead of trying to let them grow.

Because I love dark polish, sometimes my nails get a little a stained.  After removing polish, I soak my hands (or toes) in warm water mixed with lemon juice.  This seems to remove the stains.

Oh Jessie, good tip.  I just took red polish off my fingers and the little bit of staining wouldn’t come off with the polish remover.  Thanks a bunch.

great tips!  my nails tend to peel and flake….I wonder if that is some sort of vitamin deficiency because I use the hard as nails all the time…


I use vaseline before bed on my feet…I slather it on and then put on socks….my feet feel amazing the next day and it lasts and lasts…..sometimes I go 2 or 3 days before reapplying….
