I received free products from TRIND, for the purpose of this review. All opinions stated are mine and mine alone. Your thoughts or outcome may be different.
Welcome to the TRIND Nail Care Giveaway
I love love love having pretty nails, but not at the expense of the health of my nails. I like to do my nails several times a week, so when I was contacted about trying out some products from Trind USA, I jumped at the chance!
I received the following items to try out.
1. Trind Moist & Shiny Kit (Nail Magic Buffer, Moisturizing Nail Balsam, and Nail Repair) designed to give you strong, healthy nails in as little as 2 weeks. This is one of Trind’s best sellers for women who need to repair those dry brittle nails that just won’t grow.
2. 3 Caring Colors nail polishes in a gorgeous fall color lineup – Red Shimmer, Dark Tan, and Deep Blue Shimmer
3. A beautiful black patent leather look makeup bag
The retail value of this package is approximately $90.
Okay, I have to admit, I let out a whoop when I opened the box. I am a sucker for presentation, and the bottles are beautiful! (Hint Hint to the powers that be at Trind – I’d like every single color of polish that you carry, along with a display case!)
I mean honestly – aren’t these ladies just lovely!
I first “buffed” my nails with the Magic Nail Buffer, then I applied the Trind Nail Balm, and oh my friends, it smells wonderful! Next, I applied a coat of the Trind Nail Repair. I have to say, it goes on very smooth and leave a beautiful shine.
CONFESSION. It is suggested that you apply a coat of Trind Nail Repair, each day for 2 weeks, and then use once a week for maintenance. Yeah – like I’m really going to wait to try those lovely shades of polish – no way! I had to try them ASAP.
Oh, I’m in LOVE!
This is with just one coat and no top coat! Can we say GORGEOUS!
Yes, I then had to try the other two colors.
I was in a hurry – so no touch ups, just one coat and no top coat, but still beautiful. The Deep Blue Shimmer in the photo, doesn’t really show the real detail It is a fantastic “navy” blue with just a hint of sparkle. The Dark Tan is a perfect neutral color, and great for fall.
I look forward to using the Trind Nail Repair for the full two weeks. I’m sure that I’ll see a great improvement in my nails, which sadly take a beating with dish washing, household cleaning and gardening.
Now, thanks to the great folks at TRIND – one of you, my lovely readers, will be able to get the exact same goodies that I received.

Trind Nail Tips: The Bare Manicure With Trind
Healthy nails are gorgeous nails. Use Trind Moisturizing Nail Balsam and Trind Nail Repair and your bare nails will be beautiful nails. This Dream Team gives you nails that don’t need to be covered up.
Use Trind Extra Mild Cuticle Remover and Trind Cuticle Repair Balsam to maintain your cuticles. Healthy cuticles mean strong, healthy nails.
Use the patented Trind Professional Glass Nail File to shape your nails. The laser grit seals as it files, to help prevent chipping and peeling. Keep your nails on the shorter side, and gently round the edges.
Your secret weapon for the Bare Manicure is Trind Nail Brightener. This is like a french manicure in a bottle! It makes your nails brighter, with the white parts whiter. Use a white nail pencil under the tips to further highlight the ends. That’s all you need to get that manicured look in a fraction of the time. It’s easy to maintain, too!
Invest the time to make your nails their healthiest and you won’t need a polish manicure.
Cuticle Love With Trind
The nail matrix is the “brain” of the nail. If the cuticle protecting it is hard, ridges will form in the nail. Maintain healthy cuticles and your nails will thank you!
Never cut your cuticles! Make it a habit after your shower to push them back and rub gently with a towel to remove any excess skin.
Trind Extra Mild Cuticle Remover is alkaline based to soften cuticles and make it easy to remove any excess. Just push them back gently, and rub off any excess cuticle with your fingernail or a dry towel.
Use Trind Cuticle Repair Balsam to bring back hydration. This liquid gold will help you start to grow a healthier nail.
Build Your Best Nails With Trind
Dehydration can lead to splits and cracks in your nails. Keeping your nails hydrated starts with keeping your body hydrated. Drink lots of water every day – at least 6 glasses. Sip, don’t gulp!
A healthy diet of fruits and vegetables packed with vitamins and enzymes is essential for maintaining healthy nails. Make sure you eat lots of foods rich in sulfur and silicon. Fish and broccoli are two examples of such foods. And don’t forget foods packed with the biotin, such as whole grains.
If you don’t like drinking milk or are allergic to it, try drinking carrot juice instead. Carrot juice is high in calcium and phosphorus, which are essential in maintaining healthy cuticles and nails.
You’re always on the go but want to keep up with a proper diet? Eating real food as opposed to protein bars and supplements is always better for our bodies. Try to eat as much natural food as possible to maintain healthy and strong nails.
Vitamins or supplements in addition to proper diet better your chances of having strong and healthy nails. Most important are Vitamin A, Vitamin C, calcium, folic acid, protein, Vitamin B12, and zinc. Always check with your physician first before taking any supplement!
In addition to using the Trind Moisturizing Nail Balsam and Trind Cuticle Repair Balsam, simply increasing the amount of vitamin A and calcium in your diet can have very positive results when you’re trying to prevent dry and brittle nails.
Trind Moisturizing Nail Balsam and Trind Cuticle Repair Balsam can be used daily. Like drinking water every day, the Trind balsams always keep your nails hydrated. They’re like conditioner for your nails.
Hang nails are partially caused by lack of both protein and vitamin C.
If you notice white spots on your nails, the culprit might be a lack of zinc in your diet.
White marks across the nails can also be a sign of a possible protein deficiency, or of dehydration caused by using an acetone-based polish remover. Trind Extra Mild Nail Polish Remover is acetone-free and extra gentle on your nails!
Lack of vitamin B12 can lead to dryness and discoloration of the nails.
Not getting enough vitamin A and calcium in your diet causes brittle nails due to dryness.
Use Trind Moisturizing Nail Balsam to add a dose of biotin and condition your nails. This “liquid gold” is the closest thing to your nail’s natural moisture, and your nails will thank you for it!
Nail Love With Trind
Heavily perfumed lotions and hand sanitizers contain a high amount of alcohol, which leads to nails breaking or chipping because of dehydration.
Wear rubber gloves when washing dishes or using household cleaners. If dish soap can remove baked on grease just imagine what it’s doing to your hands and nails.
If you are removing and reapplying polish more than once or twice a week, be sure to apply Trind Moisturizing Nail Balsam first. Using too much polish remover too often can dry out your nails. Always use acetone free polish remover.
Take the 14-day challenge with the Trind Moist & Shiny Kit, and you’ll see your nails improve. These products are a Dream Team that will give you back the nails you were born with.
After improving your nails with the Trind Moist & Shiny Kit, Trind Nail Repair can be used as a very reliable base coat if used no more than once a week.
Getting a hand massage will increase circulation and stimulate quicker nail growth.
Manicure Tips From The Pros At Trind
Even if your nails do not have nail polish to be removed before doing your nails, use Trind’s acetone free Extra Mild Nail Polish Remover to better prepare the nail plate. This will remove any grease and/or residue so your polish will adhere better and last much longer.
To push back the cuticles, first soak your hands in warm water for a few minutes. Pushing back your cuticles should never be painful.
Never ever cut your cuticles with scissors! Hang nails, on the other hand, can be snipped away.
While filing your nails, you can check your progress by running them down a pair of old nylons. If your nails snag on the nylons, you have some additional buffing to do.
Use the patented Trind Professional Glass Nail File to give you fast, professional results. The laser grit files and seals the nail at the same time, for a smooth and healthy finish.
Start with the Trind Moisturizing Nail Balsam for moisture and then use base coat to properly prepare the nail plate as your canvas before applying your favorite shade of polish. A base coat also helps protect and maintain the strength of your nails.
Give your nail polish at least 1 to 3minutes drying time between coats when doing your nails at home. This will give you a nice even sheen and lasting finish.
Apply many thin coats of your polish rather than one thick coat. It will dry quicker and last longer.
Apply your polish like a professional in three strokes. Take a small amount of polish on your brush and apply one stroke down the center of your nail. Then apply strokes on the left and right. Do not use more nail polish. One brush dip should equal three strokes of application. Allow at least 1 minute for the polish to set before applying the next coat. Or better yet, wait 3 minutes for best results.
Remember, 2 to 3 thin coats are better than one thick coat.
Always apply a clear top coat to your polish to finish off your nails. It’s worth the extra step to give your nails that nice glossy look. Top coats add longevity to your manicure and also help protect your nails.
Apply the top coat only after your polish is completely dry to the touch. It may be a pain to wait out the drying time but you’ll thank yourself later.
Want the next best thing to the perfect French Manicure without the hassle of getting the white tips neat and free of imperfections? Use Trind Nail Brightener (aka. French Manicure in a bottle) and Trind Nail White Pencil underneath the nail tips instead of white polish. You’ll love the results!
Pump Up Your Manicure With Trind
Use the patented Trind Professional Glass Nail File to give you fast, professional results. The laser grit files and seals the nail at the same time, helping to prevent chipping and peeling.
Chips and cracks to your nail polish are just plain annoying. Part of the preventative maintenance of your manicure is re-applying or “touching up” the top coat. It won’t make your polish last forever, but it will give you some extra mileage.
Don’t forget to apply base coat, nail polish, and top coat across the nail edge too. This helps seal the ends and prevent chips.
Don’t use your nails as tools! Your hands are not a swiss army knife, if you know what I mean. Don’t dig, pick, or scratch at things. You’ve spent too much time and money on manicures and nail care products.
You manicure doesn’t like added moisture. Avoid soaking your hands in water if you can, and use a pair of gloves when you can’t!
