nail extensions applied. More girls and women are finding that this is a much more
convenient way of looking after nails. As well as this it provides a perfect finish, as
the overlay will cover the existing nail.
Beauty colleges teach all about the importance of nail care and different types
of nail treatments from gel or acrylic nails to the basic mani-pedi.
Some other more natural ways to get stronger nails include applying nail oil to the
fingers. Argan oil has become really popular for it’s organic and moisturizing
properties. Numerous brands sell this but for the most natural formula go to a health
food shop or natural chemist. This can help nourish the nails and encourage growth.
If one is looking to have longer nails then it is so important to push their cuticles
back regularly. They can do this after applying oil.
Another route to go down is taking supplements to make up for any vitamins and
minerals that one might be lacking in. For example Vitabiotics ‘Perfectil’
No.1 for Skin, Hair and Nails. The nutrients, plant extracts and antibiotics work to
maintain and renew cells. They should always read the packaging to check this is
suitable for them.
The final piece of advice is for women to spend a couple of weeks with nothing on their nails. Nail varnish can sometimes dry out and damage the nails, especially if they don’t use a base coat. Instead they can buy a clear nail strengthener to help speed up the renewal process.
