Nourishing Nail Oil Recipe

Give your cuticles a little winter lovin’ with this nourishing combination of oils. Chia, Argan and Jojoba are packed with vitamins and skin-loving fatty acids, and the additional Vitamin E oil provides a boost of anti-oxidants. This simple oil takes about 10 minutes to create and doubles as a small, thoughtful gift or, economical version of something you spend 10X more for in the salon.

What You’ll Need:

15 mL (.5 oz) Chia Oil
15 mL (.5 oz.) Argan oil
5 mL (.1 oz) Jojoba oil
5 mL (.1 oz) Vitamin E
1 mL Almond Cybilla Fragrance Oil (optional)
7 Small (8 mL) Nail Polish Bottles & Nail Polish Mixing Balls

Click here to add everything you need for this project to your Bramble Berry shopping cart!

ONE: Portion out the Chia Oil into a clean small glass container.

TWO: Add the Argan Oil.

THREE: Add the Jojoba Oil. Because it’s such a small amount, we used a dropper to add it to the mixture.

FOUR: Add the Vitamin E. Vitamin E oil is very thick, so you may prefer to pour it directly into the mixture as opposed to using a dropper to add it.

FIVE: Give the mixture a good stir, and then fill your bottles! Be sure you’ve added a nail polish mixing ball to each bottle. We found that using a tiny funnel and a dropper was the easiest way to fill the bottles.

Your nail oil is ready to use or give away!

    If I wanted to make the nail oil colored to match scents, what kind of colorants would you recommend? Also if I added some glitter to them would the glitter suspend in the oil or sink?
    Thanks for the tutorial!! I am new to the site and have never made a single beauty product or even a soap but I am excited to start trying and my first project may very well be this nail oil. :)

      Hi Linda!

      While I haven’t been using this nail oil long term yet, my nails certainly look and feel much healthier after a week of using it before bed every night! I would definitely give this a try. On a personal note, I have been taking Biotin, and I think that has definitely made my nails and hair a little stronger :)

      Hi Ginger!

      Because this recipe does not contain water, and is simply a mixture of oils, you do not need to use a preservative :). I would recommend storing these in a cool dark place to extend the shelf life. With proper storage, this oil should last about 12 months :)
