Taking care of your nails is as important as taking care of the face and other body features. Your nails are a very important part of your hands and they too need your special attention.
Well-kept hands, with neat, clean and healthy nails, are a pleasure to behold. On the other hand, untidy nails always leave a bad impression, which indirectly affects your personality and appearance in front of others. So it becomes very indispensable to take utmost care of your nails along with other body features.
To give a natural sheen to your nails, rub petroleum jelly on your nails and then buff them, with the help of a soft cloth. The best time to file your nails is when you are already wearing a polish which prevents splitting or breaking of nails.
Never peel or scrape off nail polish or use metal instruments on the nail surface. This can scrape off the protective cells of the nail surface. Never ever resort to the habit of nail biting as it is extremely harmful for the nails. If you are in the habit of biting your nails, drop it as soon as possible.
Another good tip that can help nourish your nails is to do slight oiling or moisturizing because applying nail colors make nails look pale and easily breakable.
