Let’s start painting, shall we? 

8 Nail Care Tips for Beautiful, Healthy, and Glowing Nails: 

Internal nail care tips: 

Eating healthy is the first step of any self-care. Including power food in your diet can enhance your nail growth, health, and look. 

Take a look at the list of vitamin-rich food items that’ll help you achieve the glowing nails that you always wanted!

Eggs - We know eggs are a major source of protein but do you know that it also brings in Vitamin A, B, B7, and B12. So whip up an omelet for your breakfast or better… boil an egg or two for mid-day snacks.

Green vegetables - I know it might sound awful but trust me it gives you so much more than strong nails. Especially beans, it's rich in protein, zinc, and biotin.

Soaked Almonds - Are you a nutty person? If not. You definitely need to start being one. Take 5-6 almonds, soak them overnight, peel off the skin in the morning and have it with your lemon honey water/tea.

Believe me! It’ll change your life. A quarter cup (one serving) of almonds have around 1.5mcg (micrograms) of biotin while aids in strong and shining nails, hair, and skin. You get 3 in 1 benefit when it comes to soaked almonds. 

Mushrooms - Our favorite fungi. Have it sauteed with butter and add them to your salads, or soup it up! It has the highest level of biotin and also contains the B-complex vitamins such as niacin and riboflavin.

Sweet potatoes - Have you ever thought of switching ordinary potato fries with sweet potatoes? Just half a cup of sweet potatoes contains 2.4mcg. 

    Not feeling like oil frying it? Then air-fry it! It’s not only healthier but also hassle-free. 

    External nail care tips: 

  1. Use nail cuticle cream or oil: 
  2. Mild massaging of nail cuticle cream or oil can increase the blood circulation around the nails which will, in turn, stimulate the growth of strong nails. Make sure to research well on the brands of nail cuticle cream or oil in the market before purchasing one. 

  3. Moisturizing your hands: 
  4. Are your hands dry and starting to wrinkle? It’s a cry for help and time to moisturize. Buy two hand moisturizers - one to use after your bath and the other in a compact size to carry in your bag. 

    Moisturize your hands at least thrice a day. And don’t forget to check out the weather-based moisturizers for light and intense moisturizing whenever necessary. 

  5. Adopt gentle nail care:
  6. These are a few NO! NO! when it comes to nail care routine. 

    • Do not bite your nails or the skin near them. 
    • Do not scrape off your nail color. It damages the top layer of nails called the dorsal. 
    • Do not use off-brand nail polish remover. 
    • Use almond oil or vitamin e capsule of your choice on your nails after applying nail polish. (and dried!) 
    • Make sure your manicurist uses sterilized nail care equipment after each sitting. 
    • Be gentle with your nail shaper. 
    • Be reasonable with your nail length. (It’s subject to people's preferences) 

  7. Coat it properly: 
  8. We love changing our nail colors that match our outfits. But when it's damaging your nails and their natural color in long term, is it worth it? 

    Well, if you choose beauty, there are ways to save your nails from further damage. 

    Using a base coat and a top coat on your nails whenever you choose to paint them in a new color will help your nails to save themselves. 

    Apply base coat wait for a few minutes, then paint your nails any color of your choice (that reflects your personality!) wait until it dries up, and finally top it up with another shiny coat. 

    Voila! You have your long and healthy nails that glow for longer.
