NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH

5 Tips to make your nail stronger

A lot of women suffer from brittle, peeling and flaking nails, not knowing that those are signs of weak nails. If you have tried literally EVERYTHING, and yet still suffer from this problem, we have some tips that actually work.

MOISTURISE DAILY

Your nails are made of the same keratin base as your hair and skin, they need to be moisturised as often as hair and skin. Make sure you include Pinks Boutique Organic Cuticle Oils on your skincare routine and apply it on to your nails at least once a day. There is no limit as to how often you can apply it daily.

DON’T SHARE YOUR NAIL FILE

Nail files carry hundreds of germs and bacteria you don’t want to share with anyone. Keep your to yourself, don’t borrow someone else’s and don’t forget to replace it often.

AVOID USING HARSH CHEMICALS

Even though this tip might seem unrealistic to some, avoiding chemicals present in gel polishes, acrylic nails and acetone based polish remover will help your nails grow stronger. Brittleness, peelingness and flakingness are some of the side effects of chemical exposure.

HAVE A HEALTHY DIET

Eating healthy will help you maintain your entire body in shape, including your nails. Make sure to include food rich in iron, such as beans and green leafs, to help with your strength and calcium (found in dairy) to make them grow faster.

HAVE A AT HOME NAIL CARE ROUTINE

As we mentioned before, it’s important to moisturise your nails and cuticles at least once a day. When you massage Pinks Boutique Organic Cuticle Oils on to your cuticle and nails, you bring more blog to your fingertips, which helps with growth.

Hey Taylor,

Thanks for the message. Ultimately depends what type it is. Hygiene wise the best are the glass or crystal files as you can sanitise these. I actually love filing with them too, you get the occasional horrid squeak like on a blackboard but other than that they are rapid and really gentle on the nails not splitting layers. So for these- just keep using and keep cleaning.

Typical foam or wood board files… the ideal would be to also sanitise these with something like our crystal sanitiser- after each use. Bin them if the grit is running low, they have gone super white. Yes, the more you use it the quicker they degrade and dirtier they get- bit like mascara! I would change it approx every 2- 3 months if just you using at home. In salon should really be one per client. xx

Thanks for these tips for taking care of your nails. You mentioned that you shouldn’t share your nail file and to replace it often. I’m kind of interested to learn how frequently this should be done, especially if it depends on how much you use it.
