Quick and Easy Routines for Healthy, Ladylike Nails

Beautiful nails
Everyone is prone to brittle nails and dry cuticles but what makes the difference between healthy strong nails and meh nails is whether or not you care for them. It is important to pay attention to your nails and pamper them from time to time.

Just as you have beauty routines or skin regimes that you carry out weekly, bi-monthly or monthly, it is important to have a nail care routine so you can have neat, healthy and well-groomed nails behind all the fancy nail polish and nail art.

Here’s what you should do:

⏩For an easy start, a nail care routine should begin with taking off old polish. Even if there isn’t any polish, you can still use a polish remover to clean off dust or dirt you may not see.

⏩Next, trim your nails, if you like them neat and short, ensure that you cut them neatly with a nail clipper, not too short so there’s still some nail to file to the desired shape. For longer nails, all you need to do is trim the edges a little then file them to the desired shape. Some may trim their cuticles with a cuticle remover which makes it look neater, but if you aren’t a professional, try pushing your cuticles back instead to avoid injuries. Cuticles help protect the nails from germs.

⏩After trimming and filing, you want to give your hands a good wash, dry, and then moisturize with a good moisturizing lotion, paying attention to your nails and fingers.

⏩Once that has seeped in nicely, apply a tough varnish or nail hardener to protect your nails.

This is just a basic routine anyone can do regularly. Here are some other quick and easy steps that keep away hangnails, cuticle issues and help nails grow longer.

⏩Soak nails in warm water for 2-3minutes
⏩Push back cuticles and carefully cut out excess skin
⏩You can put them back in the water to clean for a few seconds
⏩Once your nails have dried off, trim, buffer, and file to your desired shape
⏩Clean out dirt underneath the nail with the other end of your cuticle remover
⏩Apply a hand lotion/moisturizer or use nail oil. Allow some time for your nails to absorb it.
⏩Next, use a nail enhancer to coat your nails. This will strengthen and keep them healthy.
⏩Add your final nail polish and watch your nail glow
