Nail Care


There are many cautions and methods of nail care and damage prevention. We can also pamper our nails by using various cosmetics manufactured specifically for nail care.
In case the nails are deformed, brittle or do not grow then we can consult a dermatologist. Most of the nail problems are temporary and disappear as the new nail grows. The look of the nails can be enhanced significantly by the use of cosmetics. Nail enamel can hide a number of nail defects. A split nail can be repaired applying nail-mending fluids. When the fluid dries the nail can have enhanced look with the nail enamel.

Brittle nails and flaking of nails are the most common complaints. It is due to the dryness of the nail plate. The nail plate formed by dead keratin cells is bonded together by the adhesive of fats and water. The lack of fat and water leads to the brittleness of the nails.
The domestic chores lead to the loss of water and fats from the nails, which can be prevented by wearing gloves while working.

Nail polish remover use should be minimized as it has a dehydrating effect on the nail. A Regular massage of skin around the nail with a moisturizing cream can strengthen the nails.

The nail folds and the cuticle get stuck to the nail plate hindering the nail to breathe. These are also termed as hang nails. Nail biting, chewing, and picking cuticle results in the formation of hangnails. The cuticles should be massaged with creams to retain softness. It should be regularly loosened   from the nail-plate to improve growth. .

Hangnails should be clipped off. Toenails should be properly trimmed as it can penetrate inside folds causing swelling pain and redness. Never cut your nail too short.
Nails get thickened and discolored due to fungal infections. It can be simply treated but always consult a doctor.

    Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

    However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.

  • Good information.

    I came across many queries in several forums where people have been asking for advice on the best glue that can be used on nails and that is not only strong but also safe on nails. This was the same question I had sometime back when I used to apply nail gel myself. Initially the glue I got would never hold on the way it used to when done in the salon. I then came across the nail glue being sold on gel-nails which lasts very long and is pretty easy to apply. It provides a strong bonding for my nails and also does a great job in repairing the nail tips.

    Most important of all is that this is strong glue I was actually looking out for and this is used by nail salons and nail artists for professional applications. It is available at a cheap price at gel-nails and I remember seeing it at a discount of 74% which is great. Maybe this can help if you also face problems relating to poor glue quality as I did earlier.
