Green Base 5.5, £14 | Manicurist

Rated by: Megan Evans

“This base coat contains five plant extracts and five vitamins to nourish, protect and strengthen nails – perfect if yours are looking a little damaged. Simply apply it like a regular polish onto bare nails, and either wear it alone or apply your regular nail colour on top. It’s a great quick fix.”

Rated by: Sarah Falshaw

“I just apply a small dot of this super hydrating balm on each nail and massage it into the cuticle to keep my nails nourished and prevent any dry skin forming around the nail bed. It’s also formulated with the brand’s signature scent, which I love.”

Cuticle MD, £12 | Elim

Rated by: Saskia Fenwick

“When my nails are in need of a little help, this is my go-to remedy. I apply the oil onto my bare nails twice a day, making sure to work it right into my nail bed and cuticles. You can really tell a difference after only a few days.”

Ethos Seaweed Calcium Base, £12 | BioSculpture

Rated byEmma Jackson

“I use this to condition and restore my nails whenever I’m taking a break from my gel manicures. It contains calcium, magnesium and zinc – all of which help to strengthen the nail plate. It also has a subtle sheer pinky-nude tone to it, which makes your nails look super healthy.”

L’Huile Camélia Cuticle Oil Pen, £28 | Chanel

Rated by: Julia Diogo

“This has been my favourite product lately. It leaves the skin around the nail bed super hydrated without feeling sticky or greasy. I love to use it throughout the day alongside the Chanel hand cream.”

Huile Abricot Daily Nutritive Serum, £25 | Dior

Rated by: Iram Shelton

“I love how quickly this soaks in  – it means you don’t have to worry about oily, greasy fingers – plus, it comes in a tube with a brush on the end so you can paint it on. It’s also small enough to throw in your bag.”

La Base, £28 | Chanel

Rated by: Georgia Rae

“I can’t be without this product – I think I actually have a bottle in every handbag I own. It has a slight tint to it which blurs any imperfections for that natural but still ‘done’ look, while caring for your nails at the same time. It’s just a base, so it dries quickly. I typically apply it when I haven’t had time to do my nails, but I still want to feel groomed and put together.”
