what you never knew about your nails
Whether male or female nail care is of utmost important.
Your fingernails are made of a protein called keratin, so just as with the shine of your hair, you can improve your nails by tweaking your diet with vitamins and supplements like biotin, Vitamin E, and fish oil to your daily regimen, protein-rich foods like beans, fish, and nuts.
Before you do anything, it's important to make sure your nails and the skin around them are thoroughly dirt-free. Ensure removal of all traces of your last color with an acetone-free remover applying soap to a toothbrush, then gently scrubbing your nails and skin. This will remove dirt and exfoliate any dead skin without the need for harsh, drying chemicals or expensive scrubs. Do not scrub too roughly; scrubbing them too roughly can actually expose you to infection.
Do not use metal nail tools under the nail, too much digging under the nail plate will cause it to separate from the skin, this leads to an irregular white arching nail tip.
The cuticle seals the area at the base of the nail, So when you cut or remove cuticle, it breaks that seal of protection,leaving you vulnerable to bacteria. Leave the cuticles alone.
Very important to disinfect your nail tools between uses is just as important as regularly cleaning your makeup brushes, keeps you from bacteria. You could also wash metal tools with soap and water and then wiping with rubbing alcohol.
Ensure regular trims are as important to your nails as they are to your hair, long nails are very beautiful, but if you're someone who has to struggle with snags or breakage or If you're someone whose work or gym routine causes a lot of wear and tear, its advisable to keep a nail file handy to smooth away any rough edges that happen on the spot.
I do Paint my nails at home but I always used a base coat do not forget. It protects the nail from being stained by the polish, also helps the color look more saturated and opaque with just one coat.
Make sure you're buying or using a good product. Please steer clear of polishes containing toxic chemicals like dibutyl phthalate,formaldehyde, and toluene, as these toxins can contribute to brittleness, splitting, and cracking.
Seriously, what's the point of spending all that time painting your nails if it only lasts a day? Coat seals in the polish's color and adds a much-needed gloss finish to your digits.
I would advise you do your best to stay away from acrylic or gel manicures — as long-lasting and convenient as they are because they're very hard on the nail.
From one strong polish color to another without giving your nails a break can dry them out, turn them yellow, and over time, even weaken the structure of the nail.
