Do you battle with dull dry, damaged nails that split and break easily? Basic hygiene is necessary to avoid nail breakage. You can always take some basic measures to help your fingernails grow longer, stronger and healthier. Few of them the basic tips are listed below -

• There are ways by which you can harden your nails, like using nail hardener regularly. All you need to do is apply a coat of nail hardener before applying nail paint; this will avoid frequent breakage of your nails.

• Proper trimming, cutting and cleaning is very essential. To avoid fungal infection you have to do regular nail cleaning.

• Finger nails also gets damage when women do household chores like washing, dishing and cleaning. Try to wear gloves when doing any type of household chores.

• Eat a balanced diet which includes protein, milk, eggs and lot of green vegetables. Chipping and flaking can be avoided by eating balanced and protein rich diet.

Nail polish helps a lot in protecting your nail from daily wear and tear. It provides a base which avoids chipping and flaking of nails.

• Always select a high quality nail paint which doesn’t harm your nails. Cheap quality nail paints can make your nails rough and yellow.

• Keep nail short, trimmed and cleaned. File your nails into an oval shape. Don’t keep your nails too long as long nails are more prone to breakage. Keep cuticles in check. Going for regular manicure and pedicures will help your nails remain healthy.

• Before you apply a fresh coat always wipe your previous nail paint. Wipe off oil, cream and lotions from your nails completely as it can peel off your nail paint.

• Always start with the base coat. Base coat helps nail paint to last long.

• Before applying nail paint clean your nails properly. Undone nails can cause peeling of nail paint in a day or two.

• Always apply nail paint up the length of the nail. Apply thin layers as thick layers peels off easily.

• Allow polish to dry between coats. Before applying the second coat allow the first coat to dry off completely else it may become gloppy and thick.

• Always finish up with a top coat. Top coat protects nail paint and helps it to last long.

Nail paints express your personality and style. Select a color which suits your outfit, mood or style. Red and maroons are classic, French are elegant and vibrant neon’s are chic style. So what are you waiting for; get ready and play with your creative style.

Hi Nishahameetha!
It's really great tips that you have given here. Nail gets damaged due to dirt, fungus, moisture etc. You should often wash your legs and clean nails so that no sweat left and no any dirt left near nail skin.
  • Try to avoid giving more time in swimming or working with water
  • Don't walk barefoot in wet or dirt places
  • Always make your nail with proper nail cutter
  • If your nails have already been damaged then apply Funginix to cure the damages

Toe nails are most get affected by fungus. When it gets affected its shape, color changes and looks bad. Nail concerns have been found with both male and female persons. In this case, you immediately consult good doctor for good treatment otherwise may damage your near skins. However, it is normal then you can apply funginix on nails every day to cure the fungi nails.
