Keeping your manicure looking fresh for longer! (AD)

*This post contains a product sent for review purposes, however all opinions remain my own.

Sometimes I feel like doing my nails is such a chore. As I use my hands a lot throughout the day, I find they chip so easily and look bad in a matter of days! I’ve recently discovered a couple of things that definitely help me keep my nails in check.

Gel nails

One thing that I have found helps is doing gel nails instead of using normal nail varnish. These don’t chip quite the same and last so much longer. I use the Mylee gel nail kit which I’ve found is really easy to use and great value.

SLIXIR hand & polish cream

I was recently sent this hand and polish cream by the brand SLIXIR and I have found it to be a game changer! I’ve been trying it out for a little while now and I’ve honestly found it has helped keep my nails in tact.

This cream contains a blend of natural plant oils, vitamins and minerals. Use a hazelnut sized amount twice a day, massaging the cream into your fingers and nails.


This SLIXIR cream is formulated to:

  • Maintain the look of a freshly applied manicure
  • Keep nail polish supple and glossy
  • Replace cuticle oils AND handcreams
  • Maintain smooth, paintable nails
  • Support natural nail health

Active ingredients:

  • Copper Active – helps to soothe inflamed cuticles
  • Antioxidants and Multivitamins – anti-aging to combat free radicals
  • Light reflecting particles – to reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • Colloidal Oats – to coat and protect hands and cuticles
  • Jojoba oil
  • Avocado oil

The SLIXIR cream contains no parabens and is not tested on animals. It feels like a really luxurious cream and it smells amazing. It is not greasy or sticky and absorbs really quickly.

Until next time.

  1. I work in a salon and I’m always doing peoples nails and I know that gel definitely lasts longer than normal varnish. This hand cream looks really great and has lovely ingredients x


  2. I used to hate painting my nails but since discovering the Sally Hansen clear base and top coat it’s honestly changed the game, my nails last so much longer before chipping! I love the sound of this cream, I get quiet dry cuticles so this would be wonderful!


  3. I rarely have a proper manicure simply because I kill them relatively quickly. That being said, when I do, I always go for a gel manicure. It stands up FAR better to the abuse that I put it through day after day! I’ve never heard of the cream before. It sounds really interesting.


  4. I really love nail polish. I tend to do my own but I clean so much, swim daily and generally batter my nails so it looks good for a day.

    Maybe I need to check this out x
