How To Keep Your Nails Beautyful?

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

The beautiful woman about town doesn’t just have a beautiful face her hands are beautiful too. But you don’t have to spend a fortune having a manicure every month to achieve this; you can do it yourself at home. Here are some simple nail care tips that will not only keep your nails looking beautiful but save you a small fortune as well.

1. Cuticles make sure you oil them: Do this each night before you go to bed it will make them healthier and stronger

2. Use Blue Tinged Translucent Polish: It will make the pink of your nails look a deeper shade of pink and the white in your nails even whiter.

3. Regular filing: Is essential and stops nails from breaking or splitting and makes them look better, so file them all to the same length.

4. Nail buffing: Do once a week this will increase the circulation and oxygen in the nails. Do for about two minutes each session and be careful to apply firm pressure but don’t be to hard, which can damage the nail

5. Moisturize: Have hand cream always so you can add moisture whenever your hands are feeling dry or in need of some protection.

6. Get a white nail pencil: This is great for enhancing the look of your nails. Use the pencil underneath the edges of your nails. This will enhance color and make them look fresh and clean.

7. Nourish your nails from within: If you have any of the following then you need to change your diet.

  • Lack of vitamin A and calcium indicates dryness and brittleness.
  • Lack of protein, folic acid and vitamin C causes hang nails.
  • White bands across the nails mean a protein deficiency.
  • A lack of sufficient hydrochloric acid can cause splitting nails.
  • Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to dryness, very rounded and curved ends or darkening of nails.
  • Zinc deficiency can cause white spots on the nails.
  • Red skin around cuticles indicates poor metabolism of essential fatty acids.

8. Keep polish in a cool place: Don’t store polish in a warm place as the polish will change consistency, store it always somewhere cool i.e. in the refrigerator.

9. Less is More: Do not remove and reapply polish more than once or twice a week. Why? Because it will dry out your nails. Choosing a remover with built in moisturizer will mean you don’t have to change coats too often.

10 Hand Massage: Boosts circulation and encourages healthy nail growth and is the perfect way to make your hands feel wonderful. Incorporate the above in your beauty regime and you will have healthy and great looking nails..
