Homemade nail buffing creams are used to give extra shine to the nails using ingredients found commonly at home. They are a natural alternative to expensive creams found in stores, as the latter tends to use chemicals that can be harmful with repeated use.
Nail buffing is the process of polishing nails to make them look shinier. A paste is used to fill the ridges on nail surfaces. This paste can be made with ingredients available at home. One such paste is a milk hand paste that requires one-fourth cup of buttermilk and a half cup of powdered milk, which are combined together to form a smooth paste. This paste can be applied to nail ridges to make the nails look shiny.
Another option is to combine one tablespoon of pure olive oil and half a teaspoon of powdered white clay, also known as kaolin. It can be found in most health stores. These two ingredients can be mixed together to form a smooth paste that should be gently massaged on nails to make them look lustrous. The third option is to soak nails in a cup of warm water with two spoons of molasses. After soaking in this warm water for 15 minutes, it can be rinsed off for more beautiful nails.
