It gives the beautician ample time when making manicure and pedicure on healthy strong nails, and the results are breathtaking. Healthy nails are pinkish-white, but that also depends on your race because the majority of Africans do not have pinkish-white nails. Dry nails peel or split because they do not have enough vitamins. Now that you are aware of some of the signs of healthy and unhealthy nails, here are tips on how to keep your nails healthy and strong for perfect manicure and pedicure.
If you notice signs of unhealthy nails you should visit a dermatologist. Ensure the dermatologist you consult is specialized in treating nails.
You should be careful with the nail polish and products that you use. Some nail polish and products have toxic chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate and so on.
Use top coat every time you’re painting your nails to protect the nails from chipping. You need to make your manicure and pedicure last longer especially after spending so much time and money to have your nails done.
Acrylic and gel treatment make your pedicure and manicure last longer, but they are very hard on the nails. You are at risk of developing skin and nail cancer when you frequently use UV light drying devices. Apply sunscreen on your hands before you use the drying devices for your gel manicure.
Uphold good hygiene for your nails. Dirt has microorganisms that can infect your nails; therefore, it is important to always remove that from their nails and skin around them. The acetone-free remover is gentle on your nails. Apply soap on a toothbrush and gently scrub your nails and skin around it.
Buy a nail file and put it in good use. The glass nail file will create even edges on the nails.
Disinfect your nail tools after using them or before using them. Do not use nail tools that are not functioning correctly because they can damage your nails accidentally.
Cuticles have a vital role to your nails because they sell the area at the base of the nail. The result of pampering your cuticles is naturally beautiful nails that have a lovely base.
Avoid using nail brushes that have hard bristles when cleaning your nails because that will break the skin around the nails instead by soft-bristle nail brushes. Throw away metal tools if you have them and do not allow a beautician to use them on you when making your pedicure or manicure.
Your nails need regular clipping. Adjust the length of your nails more or less and observe how they respond. The health of your nails should be more important to you than their length. Keep long nails in a uniform length.
If you are painting your nails, do not skip the step of applying the base coat. It will bring out an extra shine and provide your nails with more protection.
