The importance of nail care cannot be stated enough. No matter what your job profile, keeping your nails healthy and clean is imperative not just for looks but for your health as well. It isn't difficult maintaining your nails, all it requires is a little know how and dedication.
Get beautiful looking hands with manicure
Your nails reflect how you perceive yourself. Unkempt ones show that you can't be bothered much with hygiene while those that are well kept reflect the personality of someone who takes care of herself. It could be that the reason most of us don't really bother about our nails is because of the lack of time we have for ourselves. But this shouldn't serve as an excuse either. Aside from the aesthetic aspect, clean and manicured nails can ensure that you don't contract illnesses and infections.
How can you get yourself those beautiful looking hands you see on TV and in magazines? Well, remember that most shots are touched up but even so, you can get pretty close to achieving glorious nails. First on the list is to keep your hands clean and moisturize them regularly. Make sure that you use gloves when doing housework.
Trim nails to size and file them into shape. Next, apply a base coat, then your nail polish and finally a top coat to keep the paint in place. Do the same for your hands and feet. If you would rather get them done by a professional, then visit a nail salon for a manicure or pedicure. You could also ask the nail specialist for some tips on how to maintain your nails.
If you're planning to do it yourself, get a manicure kit which has all the necessary items. Make sure the kit includes a cream cuticle remover, cuticle pusher, cuticle cutter, nail file, buffer set, basecoat or ridge filler and a top coat. With these items and some know-how, you'll be able to get yourself nails you've always dreamt of.
The key is to make time to take care of them. No matter how tight your schedule, with a bit of effort you can always set aside several minutes to give your nails a makeover.
