The colour and health of the nails indicate your general wellbeing. Healthy-looking nails add oodles of charm to your personality and look. It is incredibly easy to take care of your nails and keep them healthy and strong.

Try avoiding the habit of biting your nails or opening lids using nails. Besides, good moisturization and keeping your nails clean would make them look beautiful and healthy. It is important to be patient while growing nails.

Allowing the nails to breathe is important if you are someone who loves painting your nails. Do not forget to take breaks and leave the nails un painted for a few days. Using nail polishes that are loaded with chemicals regularly would fade the nature colour of your nails. Besides, the nails become brittle causing them to split and chip.

Why should nails be allowed to breathe?
• When the nails are painted with nail colours regularly, these colours are likely to get absorbed into the nails. This would fade the nails’ natural colour.
• Gel manicures and powder manicures are harmful than regular nail polishes.
• Nail polishes could dry the skin on top of the nails.

Apply vitamin C serum on the nails and cuticles when you are not using nail polishes. Instead of using petroleum-based nail polish removers, try using natural products to maintain the health of the nails.
