Tips for Nail Care

Some people seem to neglect their nails even though in general, personal grooming is very important to them.  But often, first impressions go straight to the extremities so it’s not a good idea to neglect the nails.  If you spend so much time on clothes, make up and accessories, why would you wear it all with horrible, bitten and uneven nails?  So here are some tips to ensure you are fully groomed at all times:
a)    Make sure you get a regular manicure by a professional at a highly reputed salon.
b)    In between visits, ensure that you regularly file your nails even if you want to keep them long.  This is a bit like the same advice with hair care; ensure you cut your hair at regular intervals even if you are growing it.  It’s always best to file regularly so as to keep them strong.
c)    Protect your nails as much as possible.  If you are working with chemicals that could cause splitting, make sure you wear rubber gloves.
d)    For other protection of nails, use a coating of cotton.
e)    If you are a nail biter, try to stop but if that seems too difficult, use a nail varnish especially made to guard against this habit that will taste horrible if you bite them.  Choose one with an added strengthener.
f)    Regular scissors aren’t good for nails.  If you want to cut your nails, buy special nail scissors.
Keep up these tips and in no time at all your nails will be part of your overall beauty and something you can be proud of.
