Honest reviews


This really is an “essential!”

This nail oil is amazing! I have a lot of allergies and cannot have sunflower, safflower, or sesame oil, which a lot of cuticle/nail oils contain. It really does moisturize and you can even use it on your heels or toenails as well. You won’t need much either; a little goes a long way. Overall it’s awesome and a "holy grail" product! Please buy it and see what all the other reviewers are talking about.

Pretty good.

This is OK,but I Like Qtica better. It goes on slightly oily, only last a short time, if you have severely dry cuticles you’ll need something else.

My manicurist swears by this

I have problem nails and really didn’t understand how oil would help. At the insistence of my manicurist, I gave it a try. I don’t fully understand the science around nail growth but I can attest to the fact that this oil has made a real difference for me. My nails are less dry, new nail growth is smooth, and my cuticles are much smaller than they used to be. A small amount of the product goes a long way so you don’t need to use much. What is essential is that you use it consistently, i.e., at least once a day. I really recommend CND Solar Oil but recommend you do some comparison shopping. The 0.25 bottle is very small and I am seeing some real variance in pricing online. Luckily, I can pick up this little size at the salon so there is no actual or hidden shipping fees.

Works just fine.

so far so good I don’t have any complaints. I don’t use it everyday just when I give myself a manicure and it does make it easier to remove my cuticles.

As Good as They Say

The hype seemed "too good to be true," but now I know CND moisturizes cuticles & nails nicely. The best part is it isn’t as oily as others & it has a brush that not only aids application but also contains messes on hands & eliminates oil rings on counters. Because it’s light, it works gradually. That is to say it isn’t a heavy oil that works overnight, but with consistent use at least once a day, it softens cuticles and inhibits hangnails (I prefer before bed).

Works great!

Love CND products…this smells good and is a great conditioner for cuticles and around the nail bed in general. Recommended.
