Orange juice is full of antioxidants and vitamins which promote nail growth. Orange juice, since it is acidic, also helps to exfoliate the nail beds and soften cuticles.

Garlic is high in selenium. If your body lacks selenium, you'll know as you'll have weak, brittle nails. Garlic also has tons of antibacterial and anti fungal properties which is beneficial for nail growth.

Olive oil is an amazing moisturizer, able to penetrate deeply into skin. Because of this, it also helps to soften the cuticles and adds strength to the nail to prevent breakage.

Can you use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. I really hate the smell but I so want to try this on my nails!!

Thank you for the reply. I did buy fresh garlic at first but even in a blender I couldn’t get it smooth enough to use.
Sorry probably needed longer. Cause if the smell I dumped it pretty fast I’m afraid ?

New Years resolution – I will try again I promise lol.

Happy New Year everyone xxxx
