Manicure aids are the best at keeping nails healthy and looking good.

Paul & Joe Nail Care Oil (HK140/10ml)

As usual with Paul & Joe, the packaging is cute and colourful. The handle of the brush is quite long, which makes it convenient to apply the nourishing oil, and the sweet almond scent is a delight.

The Body Shop Almond Oil Nail & Cuticle Treatment (HK109/60ml)

Easy to use, and leaves your nails looking healthy and glossy all day long. You can even use the lid as a cuticle stick.

Shu Uemura Nail Hardener (HK$100/10ml)

This does a perfect job of making your nails look super clean and nourished. It can be used as a base coat or on its own. Definitely a good buy.

Orbis Nail Treatment (HK45/15g)

Nourishing and conveniently sized, this creates perfect cuticles and moisturised fingers. It soaks in fast, with none of that oily residue that you get sometimes.

Kanebo Nail Care Oil (HK110/8.8ml)

The tube has a brush at the end, making application a breeze. Oily but not sticky, this sinks in gradually. The floral scent is a bonus.
