Get Stronger Nails With These Tips

A person can tell a lot about their health status by looking at their nails. In order to get stronger nails and to keep them healthy, follow these tips.

Tips to Stronger Nails

  • Nail health can be improved by increasing the amount of vitamins A and E in your diet.
  • By drinking the recommended eight to ten glasses of water a day, you can help your nails from becoming too dry.
  • The dietary supplement, gelatin, will help to strengthen your nails by working from the inside of your body.

Nail Care Products

There is a vast amount of products on the market that will help you to strengthen and harden your nails with the fortification of protein and calcium. These products should be used sparingly by applying a thin coat because using more will have an adverse effect. Cuticle oil can also help your nails to become healthy.


There are guidelines that should be followed when getting a manicure. The cuticles should not be cut and you should avoid the temptation to pick at your nail polish. Picking at the polish will weaken your nails by peeling off protective layers. It is also vital that the nails be allowed to breath at least once a month. This means that you should refrain from polishing them on occasion.

Nail Polish

Always apply a base cost to your nails, especially when using darker polishes. These dark polishes will leave yellow stain if a base coat is not used. Choosing a base coat that includes a hardener is the best choice. If you notice that your nails have white spots, it is a good indication that your body is running low on zinc. This can be remedied by drinking a glass of milk or eating a hard-boiled egg daily.

While nail hardeners are a great way to get stronger nails, nothing promotes nail health more than a diet that is filled with calcium. You can eat your way to better nails and save money while doing it.
