I'm Amy Hamilton-Weldon, Oakwood Nail Spa, Raleigh, North Carolina, and I'm going to tell you how to deal with peeling nails. For peeling nails, it's probably because they're dry, and so to moisturize them and if you're having peeling nails, I would use more of a cuticle oil instead of a cream or a lotion, because oil is going to get deeper into where you need it to go than a cream will. You need to wear gloves. A lot of people say, ah, I can't work in gloves, well then, you don't care about your nails. Because this is a slogan that I have used in my business a long time, it's your nails are jewels, not tools. I tell people, if you're doing yard work, because a lot of times when you're in the garden and you're using dirt and things, you know, the dirt gets in your nails, and I'm not talking about underneath your nails, your nails are kind of like a sponge. Well, anything will soak into them because if they're dry they're going to soak up whatever they can. And so, if you're going to do some kind of work like that, or even some kind of oily, messy work, like working on cars, which a lot of women don't do, but I do, you can put lotion or oil on your nails, on your nail beds, and right on your nails before you do that, and still get them dirty or whatever, but then it will have soaked up that oil, and then it won't soak up the dirt or whatever as deep. Okay, those were just some basic tips, but you should always consult a nail professional.
