Hands speak louder than face or any other part of the body when you need to catch attention of someone. Your perfectly manicured nails look good and speak clearly about how well maintained your hands are. Nail care is vital for everyone be it men or women. You can have perfect nails while sitting at home.
If you pay little attention to your nails even once in 15 days your nails will look beautiful.
The first thing you need is the basic nail kit that has all the essential tools. Nail kits are available at every drug store so you can find one easily.
Secondly wash your hands with an herbal soap and lukewarm water. Let it dry. Nails are easier to cut and file when they are soft. File from the side to the middle along the edge of the nail. Extra care is needed at this point as improper filing can weaken the nails. Do not apply pressure on the top of the nails as it will cause then to crack and break.
If you want to apply nail polish, do not put a thick coat. For a well manicured look nails require 2 to 3 coats to give a smooth, glossy finish.
Just like hair and skin, nails also require attention. A well balanced diet and drinking plenty of water keeps the nails shiny and smooth. While dehydrated nails look chipped and dry. Apply cuticle oil so that it softens your cuticles and nails and keeps them moisturized. Hence making the nails fresh and pink.
Avoid use of alcohol based lotions or nail polish removers as they tend to weaken the nails and dehydrate them. The chances of fungi and other microbial infections increase when the nails are cracked. Look for natural, organic nail care products to guard your skin and nails. Unhealthy habit of nail biting spoils the look of the hands. So give up all unhygienic ways.
