This week I am doing a different kind of mani monday. Lately I’ve been finding that I really need to care for my nails in order to keep them healthy and picture perfect. I have very weak nails that will break at any instance so I’m always trying to find ways to make them stronger and healthier. So today I am sharing my top 5 ways to care for your nails!
1. moisturize nails and cuticles
This is so important. Moisturizing your cuticles will make them easier to manage and make them looks better without having to cut them (refer to point 3 for why we shouldn’t be doing this). And moisturizing your nails can help protect from breakage and chipping.
2. always use base coat
I am a strong believer for base coat. I don’t ever do my nails without using base coat, as it not only helps protect them from nail polish, which can cause the nail to turn yellow. It will also make the nails stronger and grow faster.
3. NEVER cut or trim cuticles
This is something that I did not know about until about a year ago. I had always cut my cuticles and never knew that we are not supposed to. The cuticle is the barrier against fungus and bacteria and without it the protection is gone.
4. Another don’t: Never buff ridged nails!
Buffing them will only make them thinner and thinner. Instead you should apply a base coat to cover the ridges.
5. Filing nails
Make sure to file nails in one direction, because filing them back and forth can cause splitting.
