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.
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
- 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.

I wish I had nails to actually do a manicure on! I have such a bad nail picking problem!
This is such great advice, my nail varnish chips so quickly after I put it on, only getting Gelish nails done makes them last a hell of a long time! x

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
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!
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.
I need some products like this because I want my nail polish to last longer. I also want healthier nails. Thanks for sharing.
I will have to try some of these tips and products.
I’ve had gel nails before, but they still didn’t last long enough to be worth it – I’ll need to try out this cream!
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
Using a clear high shine varnish acts as an instant polish refresher too – when the start to look a bit dull.
I always get gel nails done as they last a lot longer! That cream sounds great and definitely something I need in my nail routine xx
