Manicure and nail care tips

If you have hands and nails looking the way they should, here are suggestions on how to keep them that way:

  • Avoid using nails to open jars or to scrape lobster meat from claws. If it’s worth getting to, it’s worth using the proper utensil.
  • Open jewelry clasps or lockets with a metal nail file rather than fingernails.
  • Always use a pen or pencil to dial a phone and knuckles to press for an elevator.
  • Don’t keep hands in chemicals or hot water for long periods of time. If you love to soak in a hot tub for hours, try to keep hands out of the water as much as possible.
  • Moisturize hands every time you moisturize your face.
  • Avoid picking at nail polish. You may pull off a layer of nail and weaken it.
  • Wash hair with the pads of your fingers rather than your nails. It’s better for circulation and manicure.

Take good care of your hands. You’ll notice less breakage and long-lasting manicures when you pay attention to what you do with those pretty fingers.
