The Nail Balsam is, hands down, my favorite nail care product in the history of nail care products. You brush it on your nails just like polish and let it soak in for a minute or so, then massage what is left into your nail and cuticle. It serves to moisturize and hydrate your nails, but it also preps them for polish, meaning that you don't have to wash it off or clean your nails any further!
After the Nail Balsam soaks in completely, I apply a coat of Nail Repair and use it as my base coat for polish. It seems to work just as well as any other base coat I use. After I do a lot of swatching, my nails tend to split and get peely, but I've noticed that they have been a lot better since I started using this Trind system.
The only downside to these products is that they are a bit on the expensive side, but trust me, they are totally worth it. I would definitely recommend at least picking up the Nail Balsam to try if you are wary! You will be completely won over. You can browse all of the Trind products on their website: www.trind.ca.
