Mumbai: It doesn’t matter whether you’re the girl with the girly attitude or the tomboy with swag, polished hands let the world know you’re a total power girl. Perfect nails are every girl’s dream and maintaining them is not that difficult. Here are some simple tips that can help you get great nails-
Just like you wash your face every day, you should also clean under your nails every day. Even if you’re wearing black nail polish, you need to keep your nails clean for optimal growth and strength.
2. Top Coating:
Make sure you use a good top coat so that your nails look shiny. Even if you’re going polish-free, it takes two minutes to swipe on a clear polish and your nails instantly look put together.
3. Shaping Them:
If you file back and forth with a rough nail file you will damage your nails. Instead, file in one direction only, hitting the tips of your nails.
4. Don’t bite:
Your mom is right about this: The germs on your hands shouldn’t get near your mouth. Biting also damages the base of your nail, sometimes irreparably. Needless to say, this leaves the ends of your nails crooked and uneven.
5. Wearing gloves:
Keeping your hands in hot water for a while can actually dry out your nails. So if it’s your turn to wash the dishes or clean the bathroom, ask your mom or dad for some rubber gloves before you leave for work. Add a little oil to hand cream, and apply to your nails and fingers before putting on gloves, and it’ll be like getting a spa manicure while you’re stuck at work.
