Girls who do gel manicure often, you will know this pain! You would like your nails to be pretty all the time but you find that your nails get brittle and break easily after 1 or 2 consecutive gel manicure sessions. Although there are other options such as extensions, they are usually more expensive and can lead to fungal infections.
Get healthy, strong and pretty nails with these five hacks!
#1 Avoid consecutive gel manicures
This may be a given but gel manicures are actually very harsh on the nails - from its application to its removal using acetone nail polish removers. Try to space out your manicure sessions and give your nails time to recover and recuperate.
#2 Nail oils
Nail oils such as cuticle oils help to keep your nails healthy and strong. By brushing these oils on your cuticles and around your nails, the oil will seep into your nails, keeping it moisturised and less susceptible to breakage.
#3 Biotin supplements
Biotin supplements are rich in vitamin B, which is vital for nail growth and hair growth. If you are plagued with brittle nails, why not take some supplements which will strengthen your hair at the same time?
#4 Moisturise your hands regularly
Other than nail oils, you can also use hand creams to add moisture to your nails. Pay more attention to your cuticles and moisturise your hands regularly.
#5 Keep your nails short
Long nails are much more susceptible to breakage than short nails. If you find your nails chipping or breaking, it's time to cut them so you don't get ugly, chipped nails!
