I started using Solar Oil about 2 months ago, as the ladies on the nail board highly recommend it. At that time I began implementing several products to improve my nails, and although I used Solar Oil nightly, I felt that it was playing a minor role in improving them.
Then I misplaced my bottle and went for almost two weeks without it. Well, the chronic(painful) hangnails returned and I got a big crack in the skin surrounding a thumbnail and my cuticles looked dry and flaky. Mind you, I still used hand lotion after every washing and wore gloves in winter winds. I soonafter found my missing bottle and began applying it everytime I was at my computer as well as bedtime and my nailbeds began to glow with health again! They felt soothed and comfortable!
Very light,almond scent. Online sources sell it very inexpensively. Highly recommend!
I bought Solar Oil upon recomendation from the girl that did my nails in January. She told me to apply nightly around my cuticles and massage in. This only takes but a minute of my time and my nails have NEVER looked this good. Maybe its because I'm just taking better care of them in general but ever since starting with the oil, no more ragged cuticles and no more peeling nails. Prior I couldn't grow mine out because as soon as I got a free edge they would peel and then break. I think my nails are at the longest they have ever been...ever. Not one peel, crack or break since January when I bought it. Product also lasts a long time and smells nice. I've barely made a dent in the bottle I have.
I've been using this every night for a few months and it has made a complete difference in the look and feel of my cuticles. It's easy to apply and although it doesn't seem to really sink in very quickly I don't have any problem with it getting on my sheets or bedding. I also love the Solar Balm which I keep in my purse and apply when I get a few minutes.
I use this every night before bed and/or after I take my nail polish off. I massage it into the nails & cuticles a few seconds for each.
Now I know this isn't supposed to make your nails grow but I swear by it, My nails and cuticles don't peel and they just feel so great!
This is my beauty secret for long healthy nails :D

I don't know - Solar Oil just didn't soften up my cuticles - even after using it for a week, a couple times a day, I haven't noticed much of any improvement. And my cuticles really aren't all that rough. It smells wonderful though! I didn't think Solar Oil was too expensive, and I thought it was pretty easy to use, but I don't think I'll buy it again.
The best cuticle oil I ever tried was by T.I.P.S.. Tips, however, costs $15.00 plus shipping for a tiny bottle. I started to look for substitutes. As soon as I stopped using the Tips, my cuticles and nails became a mess. I then found Solar Oil and the cuticles look just as good. I highly recommend this product.
Update: the manicurist stated that my nails looked like they were well taken care of--I actually had done nothing to them other than place the solar oil on them whenever I sat at the computer continued >>
Bought this on Ebay for $3. This stuff is great. I bought it after reading the reviews here. I have a bad habit of picking at my cuticles so I need something that will make them look smooth. This stuff transforms the nails and cuticles when you put it on. My nails look moisturized and healthy and my cuticles don't have as many hangnails and dry skin so I don't pick as much. I've only used this for a day or so and it has made a huge difference.
BETTER THAN T.I.P.S. FROM QVC!!!!!! SOFT SMELL - -- BEAUTIFUL SWEET ALMOND SCENT.......LOVE IT. AFTER A WHILE U ONLY NEED TO APPLY HERE AND THERE.
BEAUTIFUL RESULTS- HEALTHY CUTICLES.
TRY CREATIVE NAIL DESIGN'S SUPER SHINEY TOP COAT AND "STICKEY" BASE COAT -- THEY ARE THE BEST OUT THERE - YOU WILL BE AMAZED! I WAS!
First of all, i read about how Solar Oil will help keep nail enhancements flexible. i love acrylic nails, but before (about 2 years ago) i stopped getting them done because they would only last a week on me, then would lift so much that they are really ugly on the sides and i would get so frustrated that i would pick off the old set just to get a new, fresh one done. then i recently discovered Solar oil, and i bought it, along with getting a new set of acrylics. i use the oil every night with gloves on (i rub the solar oil into my cuticles, surrounding skin of my nails, and into the acrylics themselves), and i use the solar balm for the daytime once a day since the oil is too greasy for me in the day. and MY ACRYLIC NAILS DON'T LIFT AND THEY STAY FRESH!!!!! i got a fill done last week after 3.5 weeks of growth (and 3.5 weeks of using solar oil and balm every day/night), and at that point the acrylics still looked almost new (minus the gap of course)! The cost is very good considering the miracles it performs! i would highly recommend Solar Oil to those that love acrylic nails and nail enhancements as much as i do!
I love Solar Oil! I've been using it for years. I have very dry cuticles and I have an aweful habit of picking at them. My nails look their best when I use this regularly. They look so good, in fact, that I finally stop picking at them. The smell, as previously noted, it a yummy almond scent. Huge, huge fan of this!
