YES!!! It's so nice to use after you put your top coat dries. It will make your cuticles look so healthy and complete your manicure, which is great for me because I usually paint my own nails and this creme helps keep costs down.

I have nail polish on probably 75% of the time and this product works just as well with or without nail polish. If you're looking to strengthen and condition your actual nails then I would put this on bare nails at night. Other than that though, this product works great on your cuticles with or without nail polish!

It will still nourish and condition the cuticles but I doubt that it would penetrate into the nail base, although who knows...I mostly use it for my cuticles, so nail polish is not an obstacle!

answer 6
I would actually recommend applying nail polish first, since its a cuticle treatment rather than nail treatment. Since the cream is oil based, even a little drop on your nail will prevent your nail polish sticking to your nail properly.
I usually do my nail routine first(base coat, nail polish, top coat), let it try and then apply layer of Dior cream onto ur cuticles massaging it in for a few seconds. Cream is a little sticky so i would suggest applying the cream while you r watching TV( my preference). Or sometimes i apply the cream before going to bed after i am done with my face cleaning/moisturizing routine
Hope this helps :)

it's a scent reminescent of cosmetics that were made in the 60's and 70's. I find it very pleasant. It's a sort of waxy scent, oh my gosh, it's so hard to describe!

Dior Nail Crème smells lovely. It has a Crayon-like scent. It does not smell fruity or flowery. It is simply a light, waxy scent reminiscent of Crayola Crayons. I must emphasize that this is a very light scent, so even if for some reason your nose doesn’t like it, it is very light.

i LOVE the smell (and i don't say that often about a product's smell)

to me it smells like a really high end makeup counter. it has a hint of apricot, but it's not really a sweet apricotty smell ... it's more like the essence of apricot added to high quality makeup. this product also contains beeswax and (again) to me, it has a hint of that sweet beeswax candle smell. i'd say the sweetness of the scent comes from the beeswax and the apricot is an undertone.

Consistency of product
I am questioning the consistency of this product. It is very thick and tacky, almost like a waxy past. Is it suppose to be that way or did I perhaps get an old batch of the product?? I felt like my fingers were sticking to the sheets of my bed.

The consistency is VERY thick and sticky. A little goes a long way, and make sure you are prepared to give it a minute to absorb. Maybe wear cotton gloves if you are afraid of staining your sheets - but it would be just as easy to apply a little dab and wait for it to absorb before doing anything with your hands.

It's a very thick tacky product but, that's how it's supposed to be. You don't need to use very much at all. I like to put some on each nail, let it sit a few minutes then massage into each nail bed. Follow with a nice hand cream. I try to do it 15-30 min befor turning out the lights. I find that gives it enough time to absorbe and not have that tacky feeling on the sheets.

Nail polish essentially needs something oil-less and grease-less to properly stick to... meaning that this cream should probably not be applied on the nail with the intention of putting nail polish on soon after. My advice to you would be to 1.) use this cream the night before you plan to paint your nails so the product has time to penetrate and do its job, or 2.) use this cream only on your cuticles and swipe a Q-tip in some nail polish remover to get rid of any cream or residue on your actual nail. That way your cuticle is moisturized, but your nail isn't.

Does it get rid of nail ridges and bumps?
I don't know if it's because my nails are so weak and soft but I have terrible nail ridges. The base coat I use helps somewhat but I still notice it and it bothers me. Will using this cream help get rid of those? Has anyone had that experience? Thanks.

You need an abrasive nail buffing cream and buffer, or a abrasive nail block. Then get a polish called Nail-Tech. Someone recomended it to me and it is worth the price. Ask for it at a Drugstore.

I don't have terrible nail ridges but I suspect it will strengthen your nails enough that they can stand to be buffed which is the only true way to eliminate ridges/bumps. It sounds like you have very soft and weak nails like me and this completely changed that. It's expensive, but a little goes a long way, so it lasts a long time.

I have used this nail creme for over 20 years. It is supposed to be thick and tacky looking and feeling.

Plus a simple translation:

It sounds like yours looked just fine when you first opened it! I like that it sticks to the foil top when I first open it because then I can use the product that's on the foil for the first couple of days instead of what's in the pot. If it's hard or crusty, I would take it back, but it sounds like yours was creamy and pliable.

When I first opened the product it also stuck to the aluminum seal, but this is due to its extra thick gloopy type texture. Mine was a little darker orange than in the image but it worked just great! It goes on really thick, but I use it at night right before bed, then I add my hand cream. It seeps into my cuticles and I awake with much softer fingertips and nails! Its good stuff!

Usually, in the beginning it's mostly light orange and creamy, but with time, it thickens and darkens in colour. In any case, it doesn't affect the quality and the effect of the product one bit. Had mine for almost two years and it worked the same throughout.

Actually mine came exactly the way yours did. The top layer after you've opened the cap does look more dark orange than peach.
I have been using mine for the past 2 weeks. Most of the dark orange top layer is gone and my cuticles do feel and look amazing. So maybe its just cream's reaction to the foil that protects the cream from going all over the place.

it's salmon/orange cream...since it's creamy, and there's a lot of it, it will get somewhat stuck to the aluminum lid.. Just take it off or replace it back on the product. It's called Creme abricot...abricot is apricot in French, and it's that color
