If you ever happen to meet someone who notices nails to judge an individual then I am sorry but you will be looked at contempt by that person.

While it’s important to consider other person’s opinions too, but this is a very secondary thing to think about!

What we need to be clear about it is the health of our body and nails. The rest will be sorted out on its own.

So taking care of nails is important not only because of some people’s judgements or making it look good but also chapped/brittle or pale nails would indicate some health issue.

All in all here are some tips to get a good looking nails.

5. Massaging the cuticles and nails-

when you are sitting idle and doing nothing, the best way to use that time is to start rubbing the cuticles area, it will help the nails grow faster and provide the roots a great relief.

drinking a lot of water helps the nutrients get absorbed in your body. So if you want your efforts of eating a good diet to flourish then start drinking a lot of water.

7. Keep them clean-

cleaning your nails is very important, not just solely for making it look great but also because its accumulated dirt might get into the inner part of nails, harming them and causing some infections.And not to mention the consequences of eating food with your dirty nails


8. Cut them regularly-

apart from keeping it clean, cutting your nails regularly will prevent them from unwanted breakage and risk of getting then plucked out.

Clipping them just as much as the skin allows and not too deep, otherwise the aftermath of having your nail skin showing is very painful.

frequent nail painting will make your nails yellow and dry. But if wearing a nail paint is too important for you then you may apply it on top of the base enamel so that it doesn’t harm you nails as much.
