NAIL CARE TIPS- DIY SERIES

















                Hi Babes, after the nail art lets get into caring for the nails. If your nails are not healthy no art will look good on them. So here are some simple tips for your nails.


1. When applying moisturizer/hand cream on the hands, apply some on your nails as well and massage with circular movements over the nails. Olive oil can be used instead of moisturizer/hand cream.


2. Push back cuticles with the corners of the towel or a cotton bud while drying them. Do this everyday after washing hands with soap/ hand wash.


3. While doing household work like washing and cleaning clothes/utensils etc, wear rubber gloves, specially designed for this purpose. This saves your nails from getting cracks and breaking.


4. For stains on your nails, clean off by soaking them in warm soapy water and gently use a nail brush.


5. For thin and brittle nails keep the length short because the longer they grow the weaker they become.


6. Keep an eye on your diet. Take carrots, yogurt, eggs and vitamin supplements regularly.


7. In half a glass of water add half a teaspoon of salt. Mix well and soak nails in it for sometimes everyday, helps in growth.


8. Pointed nails crack easily, so file them to square or round shape. Don't ever use a metal file

9. Use a cuticle remover to clean off and remove dead skin. Push back cuticles using a cuticle pusher, always sanitize tools before using them to avoid infections.


10. Before applying nail color always apply 2 coats of nail hardener. This will protect brittle nails.


11. When applying nail color start by painting the tips from side to side. Then apply one stroke on the middle and second and third coats on the sides. Let it dry and reapply another coat.


This is all I have for now. Try out the tips and please let me know how they worked for you. Till we meet again... Byeeee Babes.....
