Have a great day everyone! Top 5 remedies for brittle nails | Daily Nails Do you have dry brittle nails? Here are the top 5 remedies:
INCREASE YOUR VITAMIN INTAKE Vitamins may seem trivial but are actually essential for the body to work smoothly. If one doesn't have adequate amounts of iron and zinc, it can result in weak nails. A basic multivitamin usually does the job, but it also helps to check for severe deficiencies. Vitamin B complex containing biotin is often cited as important for nail health. Biotin can also be got through certain foods such as oatmeal, bananas, mushrooms, peanuts and soy. Often pregnant women have a biotin deficiency, which can lead to birth defects. Ensure you eat a healthy and well-balanced diet. - See more at: http://www.dailynails.com/business/link/top-5-remedies-brittle-nails#sthash.R3E2kVxp.dpuf www.dailynails.com Brittle nails are something that many clients suffer from.

Be confident...but be colorful too![03/21/14] 6. Keep Your Hands Out of Your Mouth. "Your mouth is a dirty area, and saliva is an enzyme that breaks down skin," Robinson says. "You can get an infection if you violate the cuticle." So if you have a habit of biting your nails or nibbling on your cuticles, work on kicking those habits for prettier, healthier hands.
Hope these tips help! Btw...IT'S OFFICIALLY SPRING! 👏☀️🌷💐[03/21/14] 5. Steer Clear of Drying Agents. The hands, nails, and cuticles can dry out from frequent dish washing and from nail polish remover containing acetone. So, experts recommend wearing gloves for dish duty and using acetone-free nail polish remover. "Whether washing clothes or dishes, you really need to wear vinyl gloves," Toombs says. "That's a good time to put the lubricant on. Having the gloves on keeps the oil on the cuticle and nail plate, and it protects them from the drying effects of water."[03/21/14] 4. Avoid Rough Manicurists. Many people see their dermatologist when they develop red, sore spots around their nails or cuticles caused by a skin infection called paronychia. "Often, patients come in to me when they went to a new nail salon and had a very aggressive nail technician," Scher says. "Usually, they have an infection from over-vigorous manipulation, which usually manifests as redness and soreness. Antibiotics may be necessary." Before getting your nails done, tell your manicurist that you only want your cuticles pushed back very gently with an orange stick, nothing more. If she pushes the cuticles too vigorously, ask her to stop right away.[03/20/14] 3. Moisturize. Although the cuticles don't feel like the soft skin on the rest of your hands, they're composed primarily of skin, so it's essential to keep them moisturized. "Cuticles get dry. They crack, peel, and flake, just like the skin does," Scher says. "A good moisturizer for the cuticles is important, just like for dry skin. Any skin moisturizer will work fine for the cuticles. When you put it on your hands and there's some left over, rub it into the cuticles." Most dermatologists recommend thick moisturizing products, such as ointments or creams, for the best results. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends petroleum jelly (Vaseline) as an inexpensive way to care for the cuticles. But some doctors say that using a thick product like petroleum jelly throughout the day isn't always practical, so there are alternatives to use when you're active.[03/20/14] 2. Go Orange. If you're hoping to make your nails appear longer, you can push your cuticles back gently with a wooden orange stick instead. "Cuticles don't want to be cut," Toombs says. "They're supposed to be soft, and cutting can make them hard, more likely to fracture. If you cut it, it has an increased tendency to split off." Some people who cut their cuticles regularly are afraid to stop, because they worry that their cuticles will grow and grow, giving their hands an unsightly look. Experts say this simply won't happen, and switching from cuticle clippers to an orange stick is a smart move. "It's a myth, the same way that they say that shaving will make your beard grow faster, but letting the beard grow in will make it slow down," Scher says. "Neither is true. Cutting the cuticle doesn't make it grow faster. Nothing you can do can change the rate of growth." Mobile Uploads[03/20/14] I've had lots of clients commenting on how dry their hands, and especially their cuticles, are. Here are a few tips to help with this problem:
1. Don't Cut Your Cuticles. Dermatologists say there's no good reason to cut the cuticles. Cutting them could open the door to infection or irritation. "If you remove the cuticle, that space is wide open, and anything can get in there," Scher says. Cutting your cuticles can also lead to nail problems, such as ridges, white spots, or white lines. If you get a bacterial infection in that area, it can hamper that fingernail's growth."That's not particularly aesthetic, as well as being uncomfortable," says Ella Toombs, MD, a Washington, D.C., dermatologist.[03/19/14] "I believe in manicures. I believe in over-dressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing...kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day...and I believe in miracles." So true!

White nail polish. White is the colour of purity and harmony. The girl who choses this colour is balanced, confident, she knows exactly what she wants, has inner peace and might be even a little conservative and stubborn (she has her own strong opinions). This girl might be still a little princess at heart, who desires to meet her prince charming on a white horse.
Have a fabulous Tuesday everyone! 💅[03/17/14] 8. DODGE FRAGRANCES
If you like to use scented body lotions, the fragrance in the lotion might not be great for your pedi. Synthetic fragrances have been known to make nail polish crack, so when you’re moisturizing your feet, go for unscented lotions or use essential oils to keep skin soft!
There are many ways to make your pedicure last longer and save some money and time in between! Even if you do strictly at-home pedicures, try out these tips to keep your toes looking pretty and professional for days or even weeks! Do you have any of your own tips that you use to keep your pedicure looking new?[03/17/14] 7. BRING YOUR OWN POLISH
If you’re unsure whether your nail salon carries new bottles of polish, why not bring your own?! Many salons use nail polish thinners to prolong the shelf life of polish, so if you want to ensure you’re really getting a fresh coat, bring your own nail color. This way, you can do your own touch-ups if you need to and you’ll know you’re not wearing old polish![03/17/14] 6. AVOID HEAT
You know what else kills a pedicure-heat! We might think that once we get our fast-dry top coat on our nails, we’re pretty much good to go, but not quite yet. Nail polish takes about 12 hours to harden so if you get your pedi and run to the sauna or jump in a hot tub, you’re running the risk of ruining your pedicure![03/16/14] 5. KEEP ‘EM COVERED
This next pedicure tip might go against the whole point of getting a pedicure but it’s one to think about. Although we get pedicures in order to show off our well-groomed feet, constantly exposing them to the elements can lead to chipped or faded polish, or dry and rough skin. Of course it’s okay to wear open toed shoes and sandals, but make sure you protect your feet and keep them covered on days you can.[03/16/14] 4. TOP YOUR TOPCOAT
Another easy pedicure tip that we often forget to do is to top off our pedicure with a top coat! If you want your toes to maintain the high shine and luster, you’ve gotta reapply a top coat. The top coat that the manicurist applied in the salon typically wears off in a couple of days, so prevent your polish from chipping and keep your toes looking fresh with a touch-up![03/16/14] 3. CARRY CUTICLE OIL
Another way to make your pedicure last is to carry a cuticle oil and keep your feet soft, moisturized and prevent the polish from chipping. Having rough or dry cuticles can mean painful hangnails and unsightly rough skin. Keep a small bottle of cuticle oil in your bag or at your desk to apply on your cuticles and nails one to two times a day to prolong the life of your pedi![03/16/14] 2. MOISTURIZE
This might be another pedicure tip that I don’t need to remind you of, but let’s review it just in case. If you’re not already moisturizing on a regular basis, it’s a must that you start! Moisturizing your feet not only helps your pedicure look better by keeping your skin and cuticles soft and hydrated, but it also helps your feet stay smooth and look great in between trips to the salon![03/15/14] I love getting my toes done and if you do too, I’ve rounded up some simple ways to make your pedicure last longer! Let’s face it, pedicures can be costly and it’s rare that we have the extra time to get to a nail salon on a regular basis. So, let’s do our part to make sure our pedicure lasts as long as possible! Join me as I show you eight easy ways to make your pedicure last longer!
1. SMOOTH IT OUT
Before we get into the ways to make your pedicure last longer, let’s not forget to keep up on the upkeep of our feet! Having a nice polish job always can make our feet look more presentable, but not if you have dry, callused skin! Use a pumice stone to regularly slough off dead skin from your feet to keep them soft, smooth and sandal-worthy! SOLAROIL Award-winning cuticle oil is infused with jojoba oil and vitamin E. Repeated use drives nutrients in deeper, creating stronger, healthier nails and hydrated cuticle area. SolarOil™ should be used with ANY nail service.
