Information on Nails
Not all of us have time to visit the nail salon - but that doesn’t mean we can’t all enjoy glistening tips to our fingers! These keratin coverings might have a protective reasoning behind their existence, but for thousands of years, we’ve been decorating them to give a glamorous look. Gel nails are popular current choices. Polishes, or lacquers, come in innumerable colours. Even if you prefer a natural look, nail oils can nourish them for a healthy appearance. Whatever your overall style, nails can be a fantastic way to express yourself through your appearance.
What Can Nature Do For My Nails?
As in the rest of the cosmetical world, many experts are turning back to nature. Chemicals, especially in colouring products, are thought by many to be bad for us. Toxins can be found in so many nail products - wouldn’t it be best to avoid them?! With this in mind, there are now many products that seek to avoid these factors. Instead of traditional factors, many now use Bamboo to harden and strengthen, while still offering non-brittle flex.
A Luscious Look
In terms of colours, there’s no reason for environmentally friendly to restrict your colour choices! Every shade from black to white is out there, with red still being a popular choice. Don’t be shy about making a bold statement - a striking colour can help you stand out from the crowd.
Filing is very important to keeping your fingers looking fresh! Glass files are now increasingly popular, thought by many to be both environmentally friendly, as they require no manufactured ingredients, and can last indefinitely to prevent waste. Investing now could save you and the environment. When filing, ensure that your hands are completely dry, as damage is more likely when wet. Always file in one direction, from the outside of the nail toward the inside.
When it comes to caring for what nature gave you, oils are a truly fabulous way to take care of them. Argan Oil, hailing from Morocco, is ideal for instilling moisture into all areas of our physical surface, such as our skin and hair. But it does wonders for nails too! Massage a small amount into them, and enjoy a smoothened sensation.
Don’t forget that cuticles need some “TLC” too! When these skin bases to our nails lack moisture, they can lead our hands to lose their fantastic appearance. Every time you apply polish, take a second to push them back. This will give you a neater look, and can help your nails look longer. Try a special cuticle oil to soften and hydrate, or just be sure to rub your regular oil into them too.
How To Keep My Nails Healthy?
If your nails seem to always be in bad shape, there are a few extra things you can think about. If your diet isn’t vitamin-rich, this can show in a lined or pitted surface. If they’re always breaking, think of them as you would split-ended hair - they probably need a more regular trim! If you want to give them a bit of shine without polish, try using a nail buffer.
