Tips For Beautiful And Healthy Nails

Get Strong, Beautiful And Healthy Nails:

  • Always Wipe Nails with a cloth before painting. Any oils left on the nail will prevent polish from sticking and increase the risk of chipping.
  • Dark colors make nails look shorter. Tackle this by painting only the center of each nail and leaving the sides bare.
  • Small nails look bigger if you use shimmery or metallic polishes.
  • Pale colors are best for when you’re in a hurry. They show fewer mistakes and chips are more easily disguised than with darker hues.
  • Avoid using acetone nail polish removers, as these can strip your nails of essential moisture. Choose the conditioning variety of nail polish remover instead.
  • Apply hand cream every time you wash your hands. The oils in the cream will seal moisture into your skin.
  • The most common cause of soft nails is exposure to water, so wear rubber gloves when doing the dishes.
  • If you have very weak nails, try painting your base coat and nail polish under the tip of your nails to give them extra strength.
  • Dry wet nails in an instant by plunging them into ice-cold water.
  • To repair a split nail, tear a little paper from a teabag or coffee filter paper and glue it over the tear with nail glue. Once it’s dry, buff until smooth, and then apply your polish on top.
  • If you’re planning to do some gardening or messy work, drag your nails over a bar or soap. The undersides of your nails will fill up with soap, and dirt won’t be able to get in.

  • Clean in and stains from your fingertips by using a toothbrush and toothpaste on the affected area.
  • Never file your nails immediately after a bath, as this is when they’re at their weakest and most likely to split.
  • Use a cotton bud with a pointed end to clean under your nails – it’s gentler than scrubbing with a nail brush.
  • If you need to dry your nail polish extra quickly, you can blast your nails with a cold jet of air from your hairdryer to speed up the process.
  • Let nails breathe when applying polish by leaving a tiny gap at the base of the nail where the cuticle meets the nail – this is where the new nail cells are growing.
  • Hide cracked or chipped nails under stick-on false ones.
  • Soak nails in a bowl of olive oil once a week to strengthen them.
  • If you have very soft nails, file them while the polish is still on, which will prevent them from cracking.
  • Make cheap nail polish last longer by sealing it with a clear top coat.

  • A drop of olive oil rubbed nightly into your nails will help them grow long and strong, and is cheaper than shop-bought manicure oils.
  • Rub a dab of petroleum jelly around the neck of a new nail-polish bottle, and it should be easy to open for the entire life of the product.
  • A drop of remover added to a bottle of dried-up nail polish will receive it in a few seconds. Shake well to encourage it to mix in thoroughly.
