Long nails, whether they are delicate and almond-shaped or aggressive and pointed, make a statement. Long nails have a classic elegance that will never go out of style. The process of trying to grow your nails out may be a slow and difficult one, but if your nails are strong and healthy, you’re off to a good start!
Make sure you trim your nails instead of filing them.
If you need to shorten the length of the split ends or simply remove them entirely, be sure to cut them using clippers or nail scissors first, and then use the file to just gently smooth off the rough edge afterward. When you trim the nail, you are really strengthening it, as opposed to filing, which may cause harm!
Always treat your nails with nail oil.
Nail oil may work wonderfully for your nails in a variety of situations, including when they are peeling, breaking, snapping, or very dry. Additionally, it nourishes the cuticles and the skin that surrounds the nails, which in turn promotes the growth of the nails. Keep a bottle of CND Solar Oil by your bedside or on your desk – anywhere where you’ll remember to spend a few seconds applying it. Believe it or not, it may make a world of difference for cuticles that are dry and ragged.
Be sure to put on a base coat.
Simply said, a base coat serves to protect the nail. This might be a standard clear base coat, or it can be a treatment that strengthens the coat. Simply by adding more layers to the nail, you may help it grow in length while maintaining its health. If you prefer to use vivid nail colors, a base coat is very necessary to protect your nails from becoming stained.
Be sure to wear gloves!
Because hardly everyone uses gloves while they do the dishes, clean, or garden, this may be the primary cause of brittle and easily broken nails. The nails become more fragile when exposed to water, and the use of harsh cleaning agents may cause long-term damage to the nails.
