Women 40+ should avoid some manicure mistakes

Manicure is an important nail care procedure that helps to give your hands a well-groomed and stylish look. However, with age, wrinkles appear on the hands, pigmentation occurs, and the skin often dries out. In this case, a bad or inappropriate manicure can only add extra years.

Therefore, it is better for women 40+ not to experiment with strange nail shapes or too bright shades. OBOZREVATEL will tell you in detail what mistakes you shouldn't make when creating a nail design.

Dry skin of the hands

With age, the skin of the hands begins to dry faster because collagen production decreases and elasticity is lost. If you wash the dishes or clean the house without gloves, this only aggravates the situation. Dry skin ages worse than any shade of nail polish on our list. Therefore, first of all, pay due attention to hand skin care. Use high-quality nourishing creams.

Too bright shades and glitter

If someone has told you that shades of pearlescent, metallic, and glittery nail polish rejuvenate, you should know that these people are not your friends, but your enemies. Such nail polishes openly age you, emphasizing all the imperfections of the skin of your hands and the unevenness of the nail plate that often appears with age. You should also not chase fashionable youthful shades, such as neon, or bright blue. They also add age. At the same time, burgundy is one of the most winning rejuvenating shades. Women 40+ should also not pass by red shades.

Teenage nail design

There is no need to paint each nail with different patterns, designs, and glue an incredible amount of glitter. It looks fun on teenagers' hands. However, such designs look ridiculous on the hands of adult women. Besides, they emphasize all the age-related changes.

The strange shape of the nails

Elongated oval nails, cat's claws, manicures like Wolverine's, perfectly round nails cut to the root, square nails with sharp corners – all these nail shapes and lengths are completely inappropriate for your age and status. In addition, they look rather impudent and sloppy. Short nails of any shape that suited you before can rejuvenate your hands. But don't cut off the entire nail to "zero" – this makes your hands look rather rough and untidy.
