Top Nail Care Problems Solved


Open a fashion magazine like Elle. The models inside are flashing gorgeous looking long nails. Sure, the nails are probably fake, but we are very envious. However, questions remain concerning growing beautiful long nails. In this article, we try to clear up some of the confusion surrounding nail growth, breakage, discoloration, and nail polish alternatives.

Growing Long Nails
My nails were super long when I was a teen. The fact is that teens grow longer nails because their young skin cells reproduce quickly. Once you leave puberty, nail growth slows down to a crawl. However, don't give up hope. Well manicured short nails are all the rage. Still obsessed with longer nails? Well, try the fabulous fakes available at most nail salons. Purchase fakes at local beauty supply stores or drug stores. They are easy to apply and a fun quick change.

Nail Myth Busted
Gelatin makes your nails grow fast! This is one of those myths that I believed years ago. The myth probably started because nails are protein. Gelatin is basically protein. Consequently, consuming the gelatin makes nails grow faster. Well, think again. Scientific studies show that gelatin does not make your nails grow any faster. Studies show that the best way to grow healthy nails is with a regular protein rich diet.

Nail Breakage
Nails splitting and breaking constantly? The solution is easy. Keep your nails dry and out of water. Water softens and damages nails. Wear rubber gloves when you wash the dishes or work with harsh chemicals. Wear a nail hardener on nails. Keep nails well manicured. Smooth down the edges to discourage splits.

Discolored Nails
What causes nail discoloration? Well, there are many causes. First, consult with your doctor to determine if there is a health issue involved. Did you know that smokers complain about discolored nails more than non-smokers? Their nails turn yellow due to nicotine. Smokers, try bleaching the nails with lemon juice. Gently rub over the nails to remove nicotine stains. Heavy dark nail polish colors stain the nail beds which causes discoloration. Here is the easy cure: Stop coloring the nails and wait for the nails to grow out.

Nail Salon Visits
Nail salon visits are great for special occasions or when you want to get pampered. Recent studies show that some salons are filled with germs and bacteria. Why? Well, they do not sterilize the manicure tools properly. Investigate the salon before getting your first manicure. Pay them a visit. Watch how they treat the customers. Are the work stations clean? Do they properly sterilize tools? You might want to go to another establishment, if the salon does not follow proper sterilization procedures to protect customers.

Nail Polish Alternatives
Gels, strips, hardeners, tips, acrylics, are popular alternatives. The best nail polish alternative is to simply bare your nails to the world. In other words, manicure the nails, buff them for a high shine, and go.
