Tips to Keep Nails White and Clean
Its almost a Friyay…!!!
Adding one more page to my Nail care book, here is the new post.
You might have checked pictures of my nails in the previous posts on nail paints. I have currently long nails. I am moody when it comes to length of nails. I sometimes tend to cut them and keep it shorter and neater. Some times grow them like a vampire. #haha
But irrespective of the length, one thing I take care is the health of the nails. I make sure they get time to breath and also the hygiene they need. Because brittle / yellow / stained nails look really bad. Don’t you think so??? huun??
Today I am gonna write a short post about my tried and tested nail care tips.
Read on to know how to take care of those beautiful nails of yours.
Yes. I apply toothpaste on my nails. Leave it for 5-10 minutes. Clean it with water. This makes nails whiter and brighter. #tada
As I have mentioned in the post about beauty benefits of lemon, it is a bleaching agent. Dip nails in lemon juice for 5-10 minutes daily. Till you achieve the goal of making nails nicer.
Just like lemon, this is whitening agent. Apply the paste made of baking soda and water on nails. Wash it after 5-10 minutes.
This is my favorite for cleaning my nails. Drop few drops of hydrogen peroxide solution on nails. You can see the dirt coming out of your nail #ewww and best part is it cleanses your nail instantly. Make it super clean and shiny.
Applying a base coat is a must before nail paint. Base coat acts as a protection layer and protects from chemicals which are there in nail paints.
Buff the nails:
With nail buffer, buff the nails to get instant white nails. I always carry a nail buffer in my purse. For that quick fix. Just to avoid breaking nails. Whenever there is a little crack in the nail, i fix it with nail buffer. I am sure many of you can relate to the pain when ‘ Nail breaks’. More painful than a heart break. #GirlsProblems
Take a white pencil and paint underneath of each nail. I had bought a pencil from the body shop too. But this didn’t work for me. Give a try for this method and let me know if it works for you.
Good Quality Nail Paints:
Always apply good quality nail paint ONLY. the cheap ones have harsh chemicals which will do more bad than good to your nails.
Let them Breath:
I make sure I don’t wear nail paint for 1-2 days at least before applying next nail color. They need some break too right???
So these are my methods to keep nails clean and healthy.
PS: A special note to a special reader of mine. If you find your nails yellow. I would suggest you to consult a doctor. Nails predict a lot about our health. It might be a health issue. So take it seriously…!!!
I hope you find these tips useful.
Have happy nails…!!!!
