Now with a soft piece of moist cloth gently push back the cuticles. It is strictly advised that you do not cut cuticles as they protect your nails from bacterial infections.
Shaping the Nails
To trim your nails clip your nails from the sides only. Then file the natural nails in square shape and smoothen out the ends in round shape properly. It is advisable to always file nails in one direction rather than in different directions which will cause splits.
If not moisturized properly even nails become dry, brittle and thus break easily. Climatic changes affect the condition of nails to a large extent. Apply cuticle oil to nails and cuticles so that they not only remain soft but also remain protected from dryness and ruptures. Olive oil is also a good option especially for weak nail.
Polished nails look extremely pretty. So to add shine to your nails paint them. Your nails look neat and also elegant. Enamels make your nails stronger and improve their appearance as well. To apply enamels you can make use of the ridge fillers.
