The Lazy Girl's Guide to Nail Care

4 min read

For those who love having pretty nails but don't have the time or energy for a complicated nail care routine, here is a lazy girl's guide to easy and low-maintenance nail care:

Keep your nails clean

The first step to healthy nails is to keep them clean. This doesn't have to be a time-consuming task. Simply use a soft brush and mild soap to gently scrub under your nails and around the cuticles. We recommend using our Cleanse Trio, which includes our Exfoliating Hand Cleanser, Refill Bag, and Hand & Nail Brush!

Moisturize your nails

Nails can become dry and brittle, especially during the colder months. Applying a nourishing oil or hand cream can help keep your nails healthy and strong. Look for products that contain ingredients such as vitamin E or jojoba oil, which are known for their moisturizing properties. Lucky for you, PAUME’s Probiotic Hand Balm includes natural ingredients such as grape seed oil and hydresia G2. 

Use a nail file

Using a nail file regularly can help keep your nails in shape and prevent them from breaking or chipping. Opt for a gentle nail file that won't damage your nails, and file in one direction rather than back and forth to avoid weakening the nails. Although we don’t have a nail file, our Hand & Nail Brush is not only great for removing dirt from under your nails but it can also be used dry to brush off dust from manicures!

Avoid harsh chemicals

Exposure to harsh chemicals can weaken and damage your nails over time. Try to avoid exposing your nails to cleaning products or chemicals such as acetone-based nail polish removers. Instead, opt for gentler alternatives like non-acetone nail polish removers or natural cleaning products. All of our products use natural ingredients such as aloe vera and plant keratin.

Keep your nails polished

A fresh coat of nail polish can make all the difference in how your nails look and feel. If you're short on time, choose a quick-drying formula that won't require multiple coats or touch-ups. Neutral or natural shades are a great option for a low-maintenance look that still looks put-together.

Protect your nails

If you're doing any kind of work that involves your hands, be sure to wear gloves to protect your nails from damage. This could be as simple as wearing gloves while doing dishes or gardening. And when you’re ready for bed, PAUME’s got you for after-hours! Our Overnight Hydration Gloves can be paired with our Probiotic Hand Balm to get the most out of your hand and nail care routine.
