Perfect Formula - Strong Nail Daily Moisture

I'm a little cheap. What I mean is, I don't really like to spend a lot of money.'s worth it. It was pulling teeth to get me to buy my first Chanel polish and I cringed when I did. But I know now that it is occasionally worth the splurge. I never thought I would like the product I'm telling you about now as much as I do. I like it so much, that I am going to have to fork over the $29 (for two bottles) it will cost once I run out. The Perfect Formula brand hasn't impressed me in the past, but the Strong Nail Daily Moisture oil is pretty fan-freaking-tastic.

It boasts a formula made with Vitamin E, keratin, what makes up your nail, and jojoba oil, which is chemically close to natural skin sebum and is both anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. A lot of nail/cuticle moisturizers have mineral oil in them which can irritate some folks, including me. And dork-butt that I am, I always always have to rub my eyes when I have oil on them (a curse?) and any other brand or formula that I get in my eyes makes me want to die it hurts so bad. Don't misunderstand, I am by no means telling you to get this stuff in your eyes, but honestly it doesn't hurt mine if (when) I do. Another reason I love this stuff so much is because it penetrates and absorbs into my skin really fast, so I don't have oil slicked hands for hours after I put it on. It also has no scent, which is a huge plus for me. I really can't find any fault with this stuff except the hefty price tag. However I have barely put a dent in my bottle and I've been using it for months.

I swear my cuticles have never looked better. They say this is very helpful for dry, brittle nails, but since I don't have either, I figure that this stuff is just reinforcing my pretty tips and making my skin look fab. You are supposed to use this once a day or so, on top of dry polish or your natural nails. You can get this on The Perfect Formula website or from Sephora.
