Getting Shiny Nails

Nails are bae

My girls, this is for you <3
Men, take notice. Surprise your special someone with these tips and you just might earn some brownie points!

Olive Oil

To promote growth, it is essential to keep your nails well moisturized. Olive oil is the best when it comes to nail care. It penetrates deep into the skin and nails and thus helps nourish your nails. Plus, it contains vitamin E which improves blood circulation, helps repair damaged nails and promotes nail strength and growth.

Petroleum Jelly

For dry, brittle nails, rub petroleum jelly or a thick cream into your nails to hold moisture around and under your nails. If you do this at bedtime, slip a pair of thin cotton gloves on your hands before you to sleep. Petroleum jelly also helps in gaining shiny nails. Just rub Vaseline or any other petroleum jelly on your nails after taking a bath or before going to bath, for nourishing them.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil works well for healthy nail growth. It contains important nutrients to keep your nails moisturised and strong. It also strengthens your cuticles, which play a key role in nail growth. Plus, it helps cure hangnails.

Lemons

Lemons contain vitamin C that is essential for nail growth. Also, it helps treat yellow nails and gives your nails a nice shine.
Prepare a nail soak with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Slightly heat the solution in the microwave and then soak your nails in it for 10 minutes. Follow this remedy daily.
You can also rub a slice of lemon on your nails for 5 minutes, then rinse them with warm water. Pat dry and apply a moisturiser. Do this once daily. Avoid rubbing lemon on your nails if you have any cuts or hangnails, as it may sting.

How to Take Proper Care of Your Nails?

Remember the three basic rules:
  • Don’t bite your nails
  • Don’t apply acetone based nail paints
  • File your nails

 

When life gives you lemons, make sure you up your #style game 😉

This is Samriddhi Sharma…I happen to be a Fashion Enthusopi.jpgiast graduated from The National institute of Fashion Technology department of Fashion & Apparel design.

In this cynical world full of collisions of emotions I reside in my own little world full of dreams that lay fathoms above & a hope in the deepest corner of my heart to achieve them. A little skeptic yet like water..ever flowing and settling with all the seasons alike. A little sugar, a lot of spice & everything nice. I strongly believe that a little effort to dress up & make a difference in our own life is worth the shot! Because your clothes speak louder than you do. Being in style doesn’t mean spending a bomb on clothing and Fashion but it’s more of being comfortable with who you are. Fashion fades with time but style always remains eternal. Spending money is A-Ok with me but I like my money right where I can see it – hanging in my closet. We all need to slap on some armour to deal with our boring mundane life. An armour called Fashion. Follow me and be your best for we live only once. Live. Love. Hail Fashion. ❤
