As the wind gets cooler, our skin and nails start acting a little fussy and need a tad extra pampering. If you’re already caught up and on the move, here is a little indulgence you can spare yourself.
Winters woes tackled!
Getting Rid of old Nail Habits:
Always remember to remove your old nail polish by using an acetone-free nail polish remover as acetone has a tendency of making your nails dry and brittle. Also, make sure to get rid of polish that tends to lie in the corners. If your nails are stained, get a bowl and give your nails a lemon juice bath. Finish by scrubbing with a toothbrush.
Exfoliate for Revival:
Like any other body part, our hands require utmost attention as the skin tends to get flaky and rough. Scrub your palms with a gentle exfoliator and leave on for about 15 minutes. You will be delighted to see the results.
Decent Nail Length:
Not everyone can manage to keep their nails long and be able to work chores all day. In accordance with your routine, we suggest that you cut them at a length that is most suitable and manageable.
The most stubborn of all! Simply begin by soaking your hands in water with a hint of a moisturising oil for a good 15 minutes. Now, using a cuticle remover, gently nudge back your cuticles and bring them in a neat line at the base of your nail using the flat edge of the stick. Finish by applying cuticle oil to seal in your cuticles.
The key is to get a shade that suits your skin tone. Every woman falls prey to the elaborate number of tints, tones and shades on almost every nail department store.
Here are a few ideas to keep your nails in vogue.
– Double French tips
– Nude base with silver sparkle dust
– Aluminium nail foils
– Gold metallic nails
– Half moon manicures
– Nails dripped in caviar
It’s that simple, if only in practice.
