If the eyes are the windows to the soul, the nails reflect someone’s hygiene… or something like that. You can immediately tell if someone has good personal hygiene just by looking at their nails. If you’ve been in a meeting and you noticed someone take a quick glance at your nails, there’s a high chance that that person was evaluating not just your skills, but also the value that you give to yourself. That is the reason why nail salons are making a lot of money- they take good care of your nails and paint it with colors and designs that you desire. If you’re one of those manicure and pedicure enthusiasts, you know that these things can be quite expensive. While seeing how neat and clean your nails are after a session at the nail salon in Jacksonville is oh-so-worth-it, it can also be heartbreaking (and painful!) when you break your nails by accident. Yes, these things happen. The worst part is, a single broken nail is equivalent to the removal of nail polish, cutting, and filing, of the nine remaining nails just so the height of all your nails are equal. It feels like throwing away all your money and hours spent at the Jacksonville nail salon. To keep these things from happening, it’s important that you have strong nails and you can get exactly that by following some (or all) of the tips that we listed below: Nutrition, nutrition, nutrition Don’t go arguing that you want to snack on chocolates, fast food, and salty chips because you and I know that those are J-U-N-K! While people say that they want to eat whatever they can eat since they only have one life to live (YOLO!), that’s also the exact reason why you need to take good care of yourself! Eat the right food, load up on the vitamins and minerals that your body needs, and we promise you’ll reap the benefits faster than you can say “chocolate truffles”. Well, that was an exaggeration but you know what we mean. Your nails, just like your hair, needs the right amount of nutrients to grow healthy and long. Vitamin C is essential in the production of collagen which promotes the healthy growth of hair and fingernails. Since the body cannot produce vitamin C on its own, the consumption of foods that contain this vitamin is important to prevent deficiency. Biotin and other vitamins that belong to the B-group are important in maintaining the health of your fingernails. You need to munch on red meat, nuts, and leafy greens to give your body the vitamins and minerals it needs to make it strong and immune to breakage. Dip those Nails in Oil Moisturize your nails by dipping them in olive oil and coconut oil. These oils help boost nail growth, improve the circulation of blood to the nail, and restore damaged nails. It’s an excellent way to de-stress your nails after putting them through strenuous work or intense physical activity….
