You just need to stir all the oils together for approx 2 minutes and pour in a bottle. Once a week apply to clean nails and do not rinse. This oil mix is especially great for toe nails and you can forget about a pedicure follow-up since the nail polish won’t adhere due to the oils absorbed.

Ova mjesavina ulja je najbolja za nozne nokte ali nemojte ih pokusavati nalakirati poslije uljne kure jer lak za nokte nece ostati na mjestu zbog upijenih ulja.
