To have strong and even whiter nails, I do this little treatment at home regularly. It is just as effective as any product! But in addition, it is healthy, economical and ecological! Want to test?


1/2 teaspoon olive oil

4 drops of fresh lemon juice or 1 drop of lemon essential oil

1/2 teaspoon castor oil


– Pour 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil in a small container. Very rich in nutrients, olive oil will hydrate your nails!

– Add 4 drops of fresh lemon (or 1 drop of lemon essential oil). Lemon is a natural disinfectant. It will bring a dazzling whiteness to your nails.

– Finally add 1/2 teaspoon of castor oil which is fortifying and accelerates nail growth thanks to its high vitamin E content.

– Apply this care on your unvarnished nails (of course) and massage well! It can be kept for 15 days in a cool place.


To give a shiny effect to the nails without applying varnish, dip them in a cup of white vinegar and rinse. They will be naturally radiant!
