I tried Scratch of Sweden nail care at home. My hands are grateful.
I discovered Scratch of Sweden, a premiere nail care and color line during Stockholm Beauty Week. I fell in love with the owner, Marie Houston, during her workshop on how to care for your nails. Her passion was palpable and her warmth was genuine. You could tell she loved nails and wanted yours to be their healthy best.
Scratch of Sweden was featured during the 2019 Stockholm Beauty Week.
The salon received a lot of public and media attention. Right away there was a demand for not only products but for education in nail care. Being the gifted entrepreneur that she is, Marie immediately set about developing new products and creating an internationally approved educational standard. From 1985 up to now, almost 35 years later, Scratch of Sweden develops its own products while being a trend setter in the hand and nail market.
I have notoriously dry cuticles and they responded immediately to the Nail Food product. In 2014, it was nominated for an Elle Magazine Sweden beauty Award and I can see why. Marie’s Scratch of Sweden Brand won a Beauty Award from Cosmopolitan Magazine in 2011.
My cuticles are dry!
After I removed my nail polish is was painfully obvious how dry my nails and cuticles really are.
With a Nail Food treatment, a bit of shaping and buffing with Scratch’s own tools along with a coat of the No Yellow polish, my nails look nice enough to go it alone without any nail color.
Yes! No more cuticle problems! That is the promise from Scratch’s Hand & Cuticle Care Night Repair treatment.
After my nails dried I treated them to an overnight luxury pamper with the Hand & Cuticle Care Night Repair.
It smells divine!
This cream is super rich and smells divine! I can tell that a little will go a long way. Made from lavender, sesame and myrrh oils like its companion Nail Food, the overnight cream also contains a black tea extract, Vitamin E, and jojoba oils along with other natural ingredients, each chosen for it’s healing properties.
A pair of super soft gloves come in the box with the Hand & Cuticle Care Night Repair.
I chose to sleep with the but the instructions suggest indulging in this treatment during the day while you do other chores or work on the computer. I’d put on rubber gloves over these to add a bit of heat while cleaning.
Amazing results after just one use. The nail color is Strawberry Shimmer.
After just one use my cuticles look human again.
My left hand saw the immediate results too. In fact, I can tell this is going to be a treatment that will turn into a habit. I have always neglected my hands but no more. In addition to the cuticle treatments I have a hand lotion to incorporate into my daily routine.
Thank you Stockholm Beauty Week for introducing me to Scratch of Sweden and the wonderful Marie Houston. No doubt she knows what she is doing in the world of nail and hand care. She is creating products that work and colors that dazzle to use at home or in the salon and has been for close to 35 years. She is educating the professionals who pamper us as well as us novices, one hand at a time.
