Nail products for hospital workers (nurses, respiratory)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My name is SarahJayne, I work in a hospital and I have a bit of an issue keeping my nails looking neat and protected. 

I prefer to have natural medium length nails, however any product I put on them gets worn down/ breaks down due to the amount of hand sanitizer and hand washing that I do.

(My facility requires that we use hand sanitizer prior to entering the patient's room, before changing our gloves, and prior to exiting the patient's room)

I've counted and I apply sanitizer to my hands and nails about 100 times per night on an average day working in ICU.

Currently I have my natural nails short to the nub with no polish, but this is ugly and does not look feminine on my stubby hands.

Additionally, even though my nails are trimmed very short they still chip, snag, and break. I would normally alleviate this by using nail polish.

Any suggestions of new products to try, special top coats, etc.?

BTW I only use cruelty free products, and I love holographic nails.

Thanks for reading!

Hi! I really like the Julep nail polishes. They last a long time and don't chip as easy when I use the base coat and the top coat.

I subbed to the Julep Maven box (I like getting things in the mail) and I'm excited to try them.

Other than that, I plan on trying the Color Club gel polish if the Julep products don't work out.

I hope you like them! I love the Julep sub and have done it one and off in the last couple of years.

    • So many reviews on the cannabis candle wow, and I never even tried one. I am a big fan of cbd oil, cbd cartridge and all the range of cannabis containing cosmetics, especially hair cosmetics. It is rather pricy comparing to usual hair care, but the result is worth it.

    • I love a big ass bun on the top of my head. Sometimes I put a kids flower crown around it. For fancy things, I do a lower, respectable bun type of look. I'm black with kinky waist length (when stretched. Shrinks to shoulder length) hair. I spend like 5 minutes on a daily look. Wash day takes about 4 hours between actual washing, then setting my hair in some way. I usually do two strand twists for a twist out, then I just style that in whatever way.
