The 7 Best Cuticle Oils to Nourish and Strengthen Dry Nails

ORLY Breathable Cuticle Oil

The Orly Breathable Cuticle Oil is one of Boyce's recommendations. It combines vitamin E with jojoba and argan oils to strengthen and nourish nails. To further protect skin, it contains essential oils of bergamot and citrus, along with cardamom seed oil.

Dior Huile Abricot Daily Nutritive Serum

Boyce like Dior's Huile Abricot Daily Nutritive Serum, which is a bit more expensive. Apricot and olive oil are included to deeply hydrate cuticles and heal any damage or fissures.


ISDIN SI-Nails improve the thickness, density, and durability of nails, strengthening nail beds in the process. After 28 days of use, reviewers say they saw improvements in the strength, hydration, and brittleness of their nails.

Jinsoon Cuticle Oil

Boyce also enjoys the strong dampness of Jinsoon Cuticle Oil. Honeysuckle, primrose, and other hydrating components are included to help mend dry, brittle nails and encourage healthy cuticles.

Barefoot Scientist Inner Strength Nail and Cuticle Renewal Drops

Boyce suggests the Barefoot Scientist Inner Strength Nail and Cuticle Renewal Drops as an additional deep conditioning nail oil.

Mazz Hanna Cuticle Oil

Neighbor Nguyen suggests Mazza Hanna Cuticle Oil. Its nutritious ingredients include vitamin E, jojoba and hemp seed oils, and lavender and geranium oils to relax and support healthy nail growth and cuticle health.

Ella+mila Oil Me Up Cuticle Oil

Boyce suggests Ella+mila's Oil Me Up Cuticle Oil, which is made with safflower seed oil, to smooth and nourish splitting and peeling nails. With each application, you'll find that your cuticles get softer and more hydrated.
