For those who are still in school, you might want to take caution when it comes to keeping your nails at a certain length. You don’t want to risk losing them or breaking them while typing away at the keyboard! If you’re out of school and have time for nail polish, try experimenting with some new colors that will look great on your fingers no matter what the season.
If all else fails, go to the salon and have the professionals take care of your nails! There is a vast array of gel polishes that not only look great but also last a long time. As for those who are going to stick with their natural nail, there are some additional steps you can take to make sure they’re never chipping away.
The biggest step towards healthy nails is taking care of yourself as well as what you put on your body. From eating right to drinking lots of water, you must give your body everything it needs so fertilizing your hands will be easier! Once you’ve finished all this self-care mumbo jumbo, try out some nail strengthening treatments that will increase the health quotient of your nails.
And don’t forget to moisturize! The most important step in taking care of your skin – including your hands – is making sure they’re hydrated and moisturized. If you have a good lotion, it will make a world of difference when it comes to keeping those cuticles healthy and happy.
Whenever you need to give yourself a manicure or pedicure, invest in some quality tools that will help keep your nails clean and your skin soft! This means investing in a nail brush for scrubbing away any dirt before polishing, plus having an emery board nearby for filing down rough edges. Speaking of which, there’s no better way to prevent splitting than by using an orange stick after soaking in nail treatment.
You really don’t have to go all out with the nail treatments since a good hand soap will cleanse nails from any dirt from your day, plus it isn’t as harsh on the skin. Once you’ve done every step, make sure you apply a thick layer of topcoat to seal everything in place and keep those manicures lasting until the next time you decide to re-paint your nails!
