Five manicure mistakes that "kill" nails: make them thin and brittle
In today's world, many beauties entrust their hands to masters of nail service, but it is not necessary. It is faster and cheaper to make the design yourself. To do this, you only need to know a few rules that will help protect your nails.
Some mistakes in manicure can lead to brittleness and other problems. The editors of Elle magazine wrote about them (to see the photo, scroll to the end of the page).
Scraping nail polish
Sometimes there is no nail polish remover handy. Some women recklessly try to remove the coating mechanically, scraping it off with a nail file or some other method. This damages the plate, making it thinner and more brittle.
The cuticle sometimes interferes with nail color and is not aesthetically pleasing, so it tends to be cut very short. However, it is better to tuck it in with an orange wand, because the cuticle protects the nail from damage.
It is not for nothing that the cuticle and nails are moisturized after nail polish removal with acetone. Aggressive substances can dry out the plate, which will contribute to its brittleness.
Without a base under the nail polish
A home manicure is often limited to simply applying nail polish to the plate. However, you should not forget about the base for the manicure, which will allow it to last longer and strengthen the nails.
Without moisturizing the cuticle
As we wrote above, the cuticle has a protective function. It prevents bacteria, infections, and dirt from entering the nail growth area, so the cuticle also needs to be cared for. In particular, it should be regularly moisturized, which will avoid problems with the formation of unkempt and painful burrs.
