My volunteer commitment to the literacy organization Success Won’t Wait means that I work with my hands – a lot! Sorting through book donations, cleaning and repairing books, and of course, lifting boxes and boxes (and boxes!) of book donations all take a tremendous toll on my hands and nails.
I try to avoid problems by keeping my nails relatively short. And of course, I keep both hand sanitizer and lotion at my desk. But, after a long day of working, my hands often look like Scarlett O’Hara’s in the famous scene from Gone with the Wind — when Rhett asks her if she’s been using her hands to plow the fields!
Luckily, I recently found the GRATiAE Beautifying Nail Kit (Apple, Green Tea and Ginger). This four-piece kit contains everything I need keep my hands looking beautiful.
First, the kit includes oh-so-necessary Hand & Nail Care Cream to help heal and protect winter dry, chapped skin. Rich and creamy, it contains unique soothing ingredients including organic sweet almond and jojoba oil. The cream absorbs quickly and leaves behind smooth, soft skin. Plus, it smells divine!
Next, to keep my nails under control, the kit also contains a two-sided Emery Board Nail File to smooth away any rough edges, as well as easily shape nails. I keep this in the mug of pens at my desk. Maintaining perfectly filed nails is easy because at the very first sign of a chip or crack, my file is handy!
Then, a three-sided Buffing Block provides a long-lasting shine to my nails. Use each of the three sides (in order) and in a matter of seconds nails are smooth and glossy. The Buffing Block creates an amazing shine for natural nails, or use it to smooth and prepare them for some pretty polish!
Finally, the kit contains absolutely essential Cuticle Oil. I use this all the time. The oil softens and conditions cuticles for easy removal, but I also rub it into my cuticles throughout the week to combat winter dryness and my excessive Purell habit!
The GRATiAE Beautifying Nail Kit (Apple, Green Tea and Ginger) is available at GRATiAE. Retail $49.99
The nail kit is just one of the amazing beauty products available at GRATiAE. From eye care, to facial care, to body care, GRATiAE products offer the perfect combination between science and nature. There’s even a wonderful line of skin care products specially formulated for men!
What I find the most interesting is that the GRATiEA line of beauty products combine essential oils and plant extracts, fusing them with the Gratiae Thermo mineral water – a sought-after beauty resource since the time of the Roman Emperor Hadrian!
