I love showing off my natural nails in the spring/summer months. It is a season that puts me in the mood for a good manicure and pedicure. That could be because we get to show off extra skin this season, and our nails just have to look the part. I am not really a fan of artificial nails anymore. Sometimes I have them on but very rarely. Which is why I like to pay special attention to my natural nails. I am for all things natural now; so natural hair, nails and the works.
If you are interested in caring for your nails this season, you may find these natural nail tips very useful.
Keep your nails short
Naturally long nails may look good from a distance but they are hellish to have on. Long nails are a hindrance to quality life. They make simple task like opening drawers and dealing which is why I always make sure my nails are short. Long nails only look good for a bit before they become weak and start to break.
Massage your natural nails with oil
Massaging your natural nails with oil helps your nails stay healthy. Coconut oil or olive oil works well in moisturising your natural nails, so try to do this as frequently as possible. Investing in a good hand cream also helps the nails look good and stay moisturised.
File your nails every week
You should try to file your natural nails once a week with a fine emery board to keep the edges from splitting. Using a coarse board or a steel file will be too harsh for your nails.
Exfoliate your hands
Apart from massaging your nails with oil, you should also exfoliate your hands. You can use household remedies like salt and vaseline, and lemon juice mixed with vegetable oil to get rid of dirts an stains.
The fastest way to moisturise your hands and nails is to apply a good nourishing moisturiser all over the hands. Then slip your moisturised hands into a pair of disposable gloves and leave overnight.
Use natural products
Like most products, the more natural they are the better. So it makes sense to try to use as many natural products as possible. Your hands will thank you for it.
