Nails Protection


  • More likely than not, longer nails are most definitely prone to brittleness. Depending on one’s maintenance value, long nails on work heavy tasks and daily routines are not recommended. If you plan to grow your nails long, be sure that you are able to overlook the possibility of brittleness due to the demanding conditions of your daily routine.
  • If you hit your finger with a hammer or slam the car door on your finger, plunge it in ice water for a minute, then hold it over your head while pinching the wounded fingertip. After another minute, dunk it back into the ice water. Repeat this routine about 10 times, it will stop the throbbing pain and save your fingernail from blackening and falling off.
  • Clean, well-cut nails make any hands look more attractive. Cutting your nails may seem simple, but, like most things, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it.
  • Always wash your hands and underneath your nails before you get started. This will not only help prevent infection, but it will soften nails slightly and make them easier to cut through.

Your nails d nail polish may not be as safe as you think!

  • Nail polish has a long list of chemicals that go into the little bottle to give you such pretty fingers and toes. In one bottle I own the ingredients include some of the folowing: ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, citrocellulose, triphenyl phosphate, adipic acid/neopentyl glycol/trimellitic anhydride copolymer, isopropyl alcohol, trimethyl pentanyl diisobutyrate silica, calcium aluminum borosilicate, steraralkonium bentonite, benzophenone-1, dimethicone, stearalkonium, and many more chemicals.
  • When it comes to getting one mostly women end up in putting a coat of nail polish to beautify them. Undoubtedly the painted nails with shiny rings look great. But have you ever realized that the nail polishes, which we use, have certain chemical compounds that are a bigger risk to health than toxic chemicals. Strange, but is very true!
  • Do you have any old nail polishes that are drying out on you? It's think and hard to work with? Well first of all, make sure that you are storing your nail polish with the caps TIGHTLY closed. Often times I forget, and the next day when I have a chip? patchign up is a no go becuase the polish is all goopy and streaky. But is the nail polish old and actually drying out? Get some isopropyl alcohol (from a drugstore or something), aka rubbing alcohol. Practically everyone should have some in their first aid box. Put a few drops into the bottle, mix it around a bit, and voila!
