Nail prep nail hydratior

I am going to do my own gel nails at home and was wondering for those of you that do yours at home what nail hydratior do you use please need some recommendations.

Re: Nail prep nail hydratior


Did you mean dehydrator (for cleaning the nail plate immediately before applying your gel)? If so, plain old 100% acetone or alcohol are the best candidates for the job! You can buy a "dehydrator" if you really want to, but they're either going to be acetone or alcohol, with maybe some fragrance or color added, and marked up significantly. 


If you meant hydrator, regularly applying jojoba oil (or a cuticle oil with a high percentage of jojoba in it) is the best thing you can use to keep your nails healthy and flexible.
