Trind Nail Care - Review & Giveaway

As a massage therapist in training my nails have to be perfect .. or about as close to perfect as they can be. Nobody wants ugly hands and fingernails touching their body! Who doesn't want gorgeous nails anyway .. I always notice when people have healthy well cared for hands and nails.

Unfortunately .. my nails are weak .. it seems as though the Gods blessed me with all the awesome genetics in my family .. NOT!

My problem is my nails peel .. usually from the side. In addition to that, my cuticles seem to grow twice as fast as my nails and I am prone to hangnails .. those suckers hurt! I have to keep them fairly short but I'm not a fan of the long nail look anyway. You would think having my hands in massage oil fairly regularly would help but it really doesn't as I am constantly washing my hands. Our drastic temperatures here in Manitoba don't help either .. ughh .. what is a girl to do?

I had the opportunity to review some products from Trind. If you aren't familiar with Trind products here is a little info:



Trind is Europe's most trusted and respected line of hand and nail care. It is found in the finest perfumeries from St. Tropez to the Champs ElyseƩ in Paris, and from Stockholm to Milano.


Trind is now fast achieving the same status in the United States, having been selected by the spas of Saks 5th Avenue, Dillards, Lazarus Ecotage and Bliss. News of Trind is spreading like wild fire as women everywhere share their stories about the incredible results Trind achieves!

Founded in 1988 by Theo Bouwen, Trind Cosmetics is located in the Netherlands. The outstanding line of Trind premium products evolved from a passion to do the impossible; this is what drives Theo Bouwen! Theo wanted to solve a problem that nobody else had been able to solve – he wanted to develop products that would help all women have strong and flexible nails, a product whose effectiveness was sustainable.

Trind carries a complete line of nail, hand and cuticle care as well as a huge range of fashion colors.


I recently had the wonderful opportunity to try out Trind's 14 day challenge moist and shiny kit. It comes with a nail buffer, cuticle and nail balsam and a nail repair.


I have been using the system religiously and really notice an improvement in my nails and cuticles. I have tried other nail strengtheners before and some of them have completely peeled off in one even layer .. like a sheet of plastic. Some of these nail strengtheners haven't been cheap either! I especially liked the nail balsam .. my nails and cuticles soaked it up in no time.

I will definitely be purchasing the cuticle remover. Did you know you are never suppose to cut your cuticles? I only just learned this! I would also love to order some of the hand cream.Trind Hand Repair is a rich, moisturizing hand cream. It absorbs quickly and does not leave a greasy residue. Your hands will look and feel youthful, supple.

Trind Hand Repair is a rich, moisturizing hand cream. It absorbs quickly and does not leave a greasy residue. Your hands will look and feel youthful, supple.

Just look at this sexy color .. I know summer is winding down but this color would look absolutely hot on my toes!

Trind also carries a french manicure system .. I don't think this look will ever go out of style!

One thing I've noticed about myself is that when I have nice products I really take more of an interest in taking care of myself. When I have cheap crap .. everything slides downhill .. lol .. and really .. why shouldn't we have nice things? As Loreal says .. you're worth it! I will definitely not be buying anymore crappy drugstore nail products!

Okay enough of my bantering .. ON WITH THE CONTEST!

One of my lucky Canadian (sorry US!) readers will win their very own Moist & Shiny 14 day challenge kit.
