10 Tips for growing beautiful fingernails!

Tips for beautiful fingernails.

If you’re female long fingernails enhance your appeal! People recognize long fingernails as a sign of beauty and vitality and many feel that long finger nails are sexy as well. But most important is that your fingernails should be kept hygenically wisely. So, before you start any experiment with your fingernails, you should know what might not be best for your nails’ health. Polished fingernails might help your looks, but actually the process will make the nails become thinner and fragile. In short: when it comes to the health of your finger nails, you should always try to take deep care!!


Msn lifestyle recommends only 4 tools that benefit the health of your fingernails: the nail brush, a nail file, a moisturiser, and strengthening products.

- Tip 1 -
“Be careful when trimming or filing them. When your nails get damaged, you’ll have to wait for months before you can re-grow regular nails again. A nail drill can file your nails faster than the typical nail file but they can also damage your cuticles.”

- Tip 2 -
“Make sure you are checking the length of your nails. As much as you want to look like those sexy nail care models, you also don’t want your nails to break or crack.”

- Tip 3 -
“Clean them regularly. Often this can be accomplished by washing your hands. After doing any work that involves dirt getting under your nails, be sure to clean them as soon possible by using a nail brush dipped into soap and water and gently scrubbing under and on top of your nails.”

- Tip 4 -
“Avoid nail biting by rubbing something bad tasting on them to help prevent you from biting, like mustard or nail polish.”

- Tip 5 -
“The most important mineral for your nails is Silicon. A good herbal combination for you nails is horsetail, rosemary, hyssop, aloe vera(juice), ginkgo biloba and kelp. Other nutrients that are important for healthy nails are Zinc, vitamin E, C and calcium/magnesium with vitamin D.”

- Tip 6 -
“Drink lots of water. This will keep your hands, cuticles, and fingernails hydrated. Fingernails absorb water 100 time faster than skin, so they lose water just as fast.”

- Tip 7 -
“Let your nails breathe. If you wear nail polish a lot, it doesn’t allow for your nails to breathe. So for a few days a week, get rid of the nail polish.”

- Tip 8 -
“Find a good moisturizer for your nails. This goes along with keeping your nails hydrated. Not only does it work on your cuticles, but your nails too.”

- Tip 9 -
“Stop cutting your nails. When you use a fingernail clipper, it causes tiny fracture in your nails that make your fingernails more prone to chipping and peeling. Instead, file your nails down. Filing once a week should keep them down nicely. Of course if your nail tears, cutting it down until there’s no tear is needed.”

- Tip 10 -
“Cut your nails while they are wet if you must cut them. This will make breakage and damage less of a problem.”

    I would like to thank you for being the only person to post something that actually had something to do with trimming nails. I just started doing my own nails after ten years of getting them done, and every time I cut them, they end up uneven. Seeing in black and white that cutting my nails could be causing, this reiterates the results (or non-results) that I am getting.


  2. i’m continually wandering all across the online world nearly all of the night therefore I possess a tendency to browse substantially, which is not commonly a good thing as many of the internet resources I view are composed of useless rubbish copied from several other web pages a million times, nevertheless I gotta give you props this page is certainly half decent and even provides a lot of original information, so cheers for splitting the fad of simply copying other folks’ blogs, in case you ever wanna play a few hands of facebook poker together with me just shout out – you have my e-mail :)

    I always wondered if clipping your nails could cause tiny fractures, I guess it does. I know that clipping my toenails breaks off the toenail instead of simply clipping it off because I have very brittle toenails. So I file them down when needed now. I was constantly getting ingrown nails on my big toes because the clipper broke my nail not evenly across but slanted down into the nail fold. But now that I file instead of clipping I’ve not had an ingrown toenail. :D Thanks for this info!
