I very reluctantly decided to cut my nails today. I figured since it’s the first of the month, it’d be nice to see what I can change in a fixed amount of time. My nails, although growing, were weak and starting to break. I’m going to try taking Fran of HeyFranHey’s advice and use coconut oil at night. I feel naked without my nails.
How cool! Def send us your “after” shot so we can all see the amazing growth. It’s pretty intense how quickly coconut oil stimulates health and length!
Q:Which base coat do you use for your nails?
I highly doubt I will grow my nails to this length again cause they were too high maintenance. But this is how long I managed to get them in 2 1/2 months using unrefined coconut oil as a hand/nail massage right before bed and underneath my base coat when polishing (coconut oil, base coat, polish, top coat). The health achieved was almost unreal looking. I’m not expecting you guys to want to achieve this length (I know it’s super long!) but it’s my way of showing you that growing long, beautiful nails can be done naturally. Perfect for those trying to kick the acrylic or UV gel nail habit. Try the all-natural moisture method for 8 weeks and see what happens!
About 1.5 months ago I started rubbing coconut oil into my nails before bed. Thanks to heyfanhey!! It has worked wonders for these nails. They are hard as rocks and maintaining their length longer than they ever have! ThanksFranThankss! LOL
Q:Hi Fran, Are there any nail polish collections that are non toxic?
Hey :) This is actually what my next YouTube video is about! Discussing toxic free beauty products. It’s hard to find completely all-natural polishes (I’ve tried a few and they were a disaster!). The most you can do is look for (google) the “3 free” and “4 free” polish brands, meaning they have removed the top 3 and 4 hazardous chemicals found in most polish brands. More info on those toxins here. Some fav brands that come to mind: Zoya, Ginger & Liz , Nars, Butter London and the Wet & Wild polishes sold at your local drugstores! Hope that helps <3
The front and back of my new favorite Quelly Rue Design quote bracelets ($12 each). Helpful to read some positivity on a daily basis. And can we talk about the fact I cut down my claws 6 weeks ago and they’re back? Unrefined extra virgin coconut oil under your base coat when painting your nails. And a weekly (or daily) massage with the oil, too. Hydration = growth. Crazy how well that method works. A lot of you have tagged me to your claws so I’m glad everyone is trying it!

Q:Hey Fran! Do you know of any all natural nail polish removers? I find that the typical acetone stuff (i.e. Sally Hansen, etc) is a bit drying on the nails and of course is chemical based. What do you use?
Hey! This one is my current fav! A way healthier option.
