‘Slugging’ Your Nails Without the Mess

What is ‘slugging’?

You may have seen that ‘nail slugging’ is the new trend blowing up on TikTok. But what is it? Typically, ‘slugging’ is the application of a petroleum jelly onto the face, preventing water loss as you sleep. ‘Nail slugging’ is the same process, except you slather your hands in petroleum instead.

Does ‘slugging’ work for nails?

Our cuticles and hands need to retain moisture just as much as any other part of our skin does. And we lose that moisture overnight as we sleep.

We gave this process a try, but unfortunately…we found slugging to be a bit messy for us.

Having even the thinnest layer of petroleum jelly on your hands essentially prevents you from doing anything else for the rest of the night.

Forget picking up your phone to check a notification, or turning on your TV to watch something when you realize you’re feeling restless.
