Tips & Tricks to grow your nails! ~nail care~


http://www.creativenails4fun.blogspot.nl/2014/01/tips-tricks-to-grow-your-nails-nail-care.html

Hello everyone, today is all about nail care! J The past weeks, I’ve tried to get longer and stronger nails. In this article I’d love to share with you my tips & tricks to grow your nails. For my blog, I have to test a lot of different nail polishes, which can dry out your nails quickly. But now my nails are finally beginning to look healthier and I’d love to share my advices with you!

Hoi allemaal, today is all about nail care! J Ik ben al een tijd bezig met het krijgen van sterkere en lange nagels, en vandaag heb ik een aantal tips & tricks voor jullie samengesteld, die mij hebben geholpen om mijn nagels sterker te maken. Voor mijn blog moet ik veel nagellak testen. Dit kan je nagels snel uitdrogen, maar nu beginnen mijn nagels er eindelijk gezonder uit te zien. Lees verder voor mijn tips & tricks!



Stop biting and picking your nails.

Yess, I know it's hard, but you have to stop touching them, to prevent them from breaking any further!



Slip into a pair of warm winter gloves, before going outside!

Those cold winter days can quickly dry out your nails, so make sure to wear some gloves when you go outside. Also make sure to apply a nail oil during those cold winter days ;) The past weeks, I've been using the nourishing nail oil  from herome that you can see in the picture nearby. this is a treatment that prevents your nails from breaking and drying out. It's also a great treatment to take care of your cuticles!


 
Avoid to much water.

I know it sound strange but your nails will become weaker when they're constantly in the water. Make sure to wear some gloves the next time you are cleaning the kitchen.
 



Always keep a nail file with you

It’s very important to keep a nail file with you, to prevent further damage when your nails are weak. If you want to grow your nails, it's better to start filling them once a week, instead of using scissors.
 


Nail strengtheners

Nail strengtheners are very useful to make your nails look strong and healthy. Especially if the quality of your nails is not as good as it should be. The best thing to do at that point, is wearing less polish. But that's hard if you have a nail polish addiction, like I have! :) You can still wear nail polish, but make sure to apply a nail strengthner under your base coat to protect your natural nails.  I recommend using the Opi Nail envy strengtheners. The polishes from Opi are more expensive then other regular polishes, but the quality is amazing, so they are worth the price :)

 

Base and Top coats
 
Always wear a base coat to protect your nails! It's smart to apply a top coat when you've finished your manicure, to prevent your nails from breaking of. You can also apply the topcoat at the very tips of your nails. Right now I'm using the Oxy power base and top coat from Herome! I'm very pleased with the quality of those two polishes and I love using them to finish my manicure!

 
 
Swipe away the old nail polish
 
Do not wear polish longer than 7 days. Make sure to remove old polish one week after applying it, and give your nails a break to prevent them from drying out! 
It's hard when you have to take pictures of your nails, every single day, but don't use to much polish. I also don't recommend a nail polish remover with acetone.

 

Don't peel off old polish
Picking away chipped nail polish will always led to nail damage. Don't apply to much polish on your nails, this causes chipping polish. Apply 2 very thin coats instead of 1 big layer of nail polish. Let your nails dry completely between each layer, this will help keeping the polish in place even longer. Make sure to wait at least 2 minutes while each layer of polish is drying.



 
I hope that you've learned something from todays article!

  6. Great tips! I recently put a nail file in my schoolbag for those days where one of my nails gets a little rough/chipped/broken. I also keep one of those cuticle trimmer things to get rid of rough skin around my nail bed because it drives me crazy once I notice it. If I keep adding stuff at this rate I'll have myself a travel manicure kit in no time! What a fun blog you have :) Such great designs! I'm a new follower for sure!
