Get ready to say hello to strong and healthy nails!
Here are the hand and nail care tips mentioned on the video:
1. Nail Polish Removal
Though this tip is not recommended for hard-to-remove glitter nail polish, the mild formula of this no acetone base nail polish remover is proven to be more gentle on your nails. It doesn’t strip away the moisture on your nails like acetone does, and it also prevents breakage. The process of removing the polish might take longer than acetone, but the advantages are worth the wait.
2. Nail Filing
Cute Polish highly recommends the use of a crystal nail file or also commonly called, “Glass Files.” A Crystal file is way better than traditional ones because they last longer, and they leave a silkier and smoother finish after filing. Another quick tip, when filing your nails make sure you go one direction because filing in both directions causes the layers of keratin to shred. That will make your nails more prone to peeling and chipping.
3. Cuticle Care
Another product that Cute Polish recommends is Burt’s bee lemon butter cuticle cream. This cream helps smooth and soften cuticles. The cream effectively locks in moisture to prevent your nails from snapping off. To use it, massage the cream into the cuticles of your nails with or without nail polish. This cream is great for protecting your nails during cold seasons. Also, after moisturizing your nails, instead of cutting your cuticles, push them back using a plastic or rubber made cuticle pusher. Do this once a week. This trick will help beautify your nail beds, making them look prettier for a manicure.
4. Hand Care
It’s not just our nails that we need to take care of, but more importantly our hands. To maintain their moisture use OPI Apple juice hand moisturizing cream. It is bursting with natural moisturizers for silky smooth hands! Apply this cream anytime and anywhere you need it. Also, wear rubber gloves when doing laundry and cleaning dishes because this helps to avoid your hands from getting too dry, this prevents nail breakage.
5. Removing Yellow Stains
Every girl hates those yellowish stains from using nail polish. This product from OrigiNails called Bubble White 5-Minute Effervescent Nail Cleaner works effectively in removing those ugly stains. For best results, remove nail polish, top coats or any other polish coatings from nails. If nails are deeply stained or discolored, it may take several treatments to completely clean them. Use once a week to keep nails clean and white.
6. Base Coat
The final tip, use a base coat to protect your nails before applying nail polish. Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Nail Hardener helps seal in the moisture to nourish nails and encourage healthy nail growth.
