Be sure to get enough protein. Any time you would be working with soapy water, or just water, for any cleaning purposes (other than washing your hands, of course) wear rubber gloves. Being soaked in water makes nails softer and easier to tear, then they over dry and become brittle and easier to break. Avoiding TOO MUCH water helps keep them in the right condition.
Its easy to grow you nails all you need is will power. Methods are to use clear nail polish and paint your nail clear it makes you mind think that you don't want to wreck the nail polish. The other method is fill a bowl with vegetable oil and salt mix it together and then put your nails in for half an hour, Hope this helps x
You don't want long nails... Take it from me... Long nails are super annoying! But mine were really strong, but when they're wet, they're all flimsy & vulnerable. Keep them medium length. But if you still want long nails, take really good care of them for 2 1/2 - 3 months.
1. Use Nailtique. Sold at Walgreens, CVS, etc. It is a clear coat of nail protein. Just one coat on your nails (it dries super fast). every 3-4 days, remove using polish remover, wash your hands, then reapply. I have recommended it to many and everyone has been pleased with the results. The included leaflet contains a 1-800 number, if you'd like to call with any questions. Nailtique is the only product I'll use. What have you got to lose?
I used to have terrible nails from chewing them. I have fabulous nails now and have had for 40 years. OPI products have been my salvation along with a product called NAIL Life (comes in a squared bottle). I believe it is the strengthener that I love the most. It is slightly milky in appearance. There are several products in that line. The top coat is awesome. Also use OPI Bonder, then two coats of the nail lacquer followed by "IN A SNAP", which is a quick dry top coat. Lacquers last longer because they don't chip and peel, therefore protecting the nail longer. Trust me this can work and you should only have to do your nails once a week if careful not to abuse the nails between manicures. The first person mentioned soapy water, cleaning agents - she is right. Wear gloves. Sally's Beauty Supply is a great place to buy good nail products. Never use scissors or clippers if possible. Use an emery board and a buffer. You can have it all at the tips of your fingers.
I have wanted long nails for a long time, and I figured out that if you mix salt,water,and canola oil in a boil and put them in for 10 minutes everyday for a week for three weeks and I promise you'll see improvements. Or just keep nail polish on and it helps a lot.
If you bite your nails or cut them constantly here is a solution!Put nail polish on to make sure you dont bite them.Or put Mega Groth on your nails if you dont bite them or clip!Putting on fake nails will truley ruin your nails the glue might take your nail off ,perfesonals still cant help the glue taking you nail off!HOPE ME HELPED <3
Go to Wal-Mart - in their vitamin section, pick up "Hair, Skin & Nails"; it's less than $7 for a one month supply. Take three (3) a day (you can take them all at once) *with* a meal (no upset tummy). After a month, you can go to two (2) a day. Stay at that dose forever. You'll notice a distinct difference in about 4 weeks - but even more so after 2 months. Stick with this --- it works and everything in this mixture supports your hair, skin and nails. Great stuff!
I promise since I know how much softer and broken my nails are without this product (My hair is stronger and longer too): Mineral Rich! Take Mineral rich and within a week, you will SEE that your nails are stronger and growing longer! You do not need artificial potions, lotions or polishes. MINERAL RICH is a liquid vitamin supplement. You take 2 tbsp a day and I promise that you will see the difference!
