It can happen that our nails start to become damaged from applying varnish. So to find them strong and shiny, your expert nail supplier will give you some tips for taking good care of your nails naturally!
Prefer healthy products
This is the very first piece of advice we would like to give you: choose natural varnishes. Their composition is both respectful of the environment and your health. And the great advantage is that they very often contain ingredients that are beneficial for the nails.
Apply a base coat
Applying the base is very important if you want to protect your nails from yellowing or varnish pigments. In addition to that, it can nourish, whiten and harden your nails. Above all, use and abuse the protective base which helps protect your nails and prevent them from splitting.
To do this, we will prepare a small bath for them by cutting half a lemon, the juice of which is poured into a small glass of hot water. And all you have to do is dip your fingers in the solution for a few minutes.
Moisturize your nails
Every day, ideally, use an oil or cream to moisturize both your nails and your hands. This is also one of the most important steps in taking care of your nails, because hydration helps strengthen them.
Push back cuticles
First, immerse your hand in warm, soapy water for a few minutes. Then gently push back your cuticles with a cuticle pusher. It is rather not recommended to cut them, because they return in a more voluminous manner.
Gently file your nails
When your nails are damaged, the damaged part must be removed to prevent them from becoming even more damaged. It is also more recommended to file than to cut with a nail clipper, because it tends to split them.
Polish your nails
Equipped with a professional manicure kit, it’s time to polish your nails. You can then smooth the nail plate, which allows, as you will have understood, to smooth your nail and thus allow the varnish to adhere better.
Take a break between each varnish application
Applying a new color as soon as the previous one is removed is really tempting. But your nails also need to get some fresh air! So take a break for a few days so that the nail can breathe and take the opportunity to pamper them with oil.
Protect your nails from household products
Final advice: avoid any contact with household products as much as possible, especially when they are not natural. Indeed, some are composed of ingredients that we would not suspect to be very aggressive.
