We’d all love perfect nails wouldn’t we? It’s one of the reasons why false nails are so popular at the moment. But there really is nothing like having fabulous real nails. More natural, they look a lot better too. But is it difficult to get these perfect natural nails? We won’t lie, it takes a bit of work, but it is easier than you might think. Take a look at our top 7 tips for getting those perfect natural nails….
Moisturise your nails as well as your hands
Do you moisturise your hands? But do you moisturise your nails as well? Using a good quality nail oil is a fantastic treat for your nails and will really see your cuticles soft which helps them to grow. Apply it to your nails before you go to bed, let it soak in and see the results of its magic when you awake.
Tidy your nails
It’s vital that you keep your nails tidy so that means tidying your cuticles which is the skin that is immediately around the fingernail and making sure they are well moisturised. If you are filing your nails, always file in one direction and always avoid going back and forth as this will weaken and split your nail. Always invest in the best quality nail tools as you can afford.
Stop biting and start strengthening
You’ll never have nice nails so stop it now! As well as making them look awful, it can really weaken your nails too. If you’re suffering from weak nails, invest in a nail strengthener to give them a boost.
You can always fake it
Perhaps you have a special occasion coming up and don’t have enough time to get your nails perfect. Don’t worry, you can always fake it. Fake nails will never quite match up to the real thing but as a last minute fix they’re perfectly OK.
Try some nail art
If you’ve got a bit of a creative streak, why not try a bit of nail art? Let your imagination run free and make your nails look fabulous. There’s no better way to have nails that everyone will want to look at.
Experiment with colours
Too many women stick to one, two or a limited number of colours. Don’t be afraid to be daring and experiment with a whole host of different colours. So if you love bright and breezy shades why not try some more subtle colours, and if you like more laid back shades why not go for something fun and bright.
It’s all about the detail
If you really want your nails to look like they’ve been done by a professional then the key is in the detail. Take your time and get the little things right and you’ll soon find your nails looking fresh, healthy and fabulous.
