Your nails are a reflection of yourself.
Personally, I love having long natural looking nails. I use to get my nails done for years at the salon. I would get the traditional gel manicure with French tips. After three weeks, I would go back to the salon for a refill. I don’t remember when but after a while I started to feel like I was wasting a lot of my time and money. With that said, I began to do my nails at home once a week. I’m going to show you how to get healthy strong nails, using my nail care routine.
How to get Healthy Strong Nails
At first, my nails were very brittle and weak from getting the gel manicure. It took about three months for me to grow my nails out. After growing my nails out and maintaining them at a decent length where they did not break. I began to do the nail care routine that I am about to share with you. I’ve been doing this routine for over years now. It has worked for me and I know that it will work for you. I do this nail care routine on my finger nails. I leave my toe nails bare most of the time. However, this routine can be done on your toe nails as well.
Your nails are like jewels, don’t use them like tools.
Nail Care Routine
First, I start by washing my hands and I make sure that there isn’t any dirt underneath my nails. Second, I use nail polish remover to remove the clear coat that I have on my nails. Third, I put Sally Hansen Cuticle Remover on my nail beds. I rub it in and let it sit for about a minute or two. Then I use a Cuticle Pusher and push back my cuticles. Next, I use a Cuticle Trimmer to cut my cuticles. Last, I use a nail file and file my nails into a square tip with round edges.
Your hands and feet never take a day off so take care of them.
Nailtiques Nail Polish
Once I have my nails shaped, I paint my nails. Previously, I could only grow my nails out to a certain length before they began to break. It was not until I discovered Nailtiques Formula 2, at the drug store that my nails stopped breaking. It strengthens my nails to the point where they no longer break. Also, I’m able to grow them out longer than I have ever been able to before. My nails have grown out to half of an inch and they could grow out longer if would let them. But I choose to keep them at this length.
I put two coats of Nailtiques Formula 2 on my nails. I do this routine once a week, sometimes every two weeks. The Nailtiques Formula 2 is a bit expensive for a small bottle. But I promise you, if you make the initial investment, you will not regret it.
