Beautiful, well done nails can make your hands the highlight of your look. But nails are that one aspect of beauty and personal care, that most people forget to care for. Except for those monthly manicures your nails need a ton of additional care to maintain a healthy shine, adequate thickness and firm cuticles.
 
Surprised? Yes, there is a lot more to nail care than just manicures that keep your nails cleaner and healthier. Here is how…
Nail Paints and Nail Paint Removers
 

Nail Paints and Nail Paint Removers

A bad nail paint can act as a corrosive and damage the texture of your nails. So always make sure your nail paint is made of ethical ingredients that do not cause harm to your nails and the environment. On the other hand, nail paint removers are highly chemically active and leave your nails dry and rough. The high concentration of eroding chemicals in nail paint removers takes off the shine of your nails with the nail polish. Always use a mild nail paint remover that only removes the nail polish and does not disturb the cuticles.

Apple Cider Vinegar
 

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar has natural chemical properties that add shine to your nails and make your cuticles firm. Dab a ball of cotton in apple cider vinegar and apply it onto your nails and leave it for a few minutes. This will give your nails a shiny coat and even prevent peeling of skin near the cuticle. Apple Cider Vinegar also helps in even growth of your nails which gives you an opportunity to experiment with various nail art designs and shapes. The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar causes chemical stimulations that improve blood circulation to your fingertips. 

Petroleum Jelly
 

Petroleum Jelly

Petroleum jelly works in a similar way on your nails as it does on your lips. It repairs the damage and restores the moisture to give you youthful and shiny nails. It adds another layer of glow to the existing healthy shine. Applying petroleum jelly to your nails is the best way to get the manicure finishing shine at home.
