Our nails’ shape, texture, and color can be telling signs of our health. Although most of us don’t give attention to them, sometimes our nails’ look can be indicative of chronic diseases. That is why you should see a dermatologist once you notice any significant changes in your nails, including swelling, discolorations, or changes in shape or thickness. It could be nothing, or it could be due to an underlying condition. To know what your nails want to tell you, here are 6 things that can happen to your nails and what they mean for your health.

1. White Spots: The most common cause for the small white spots on your nails is trauma to the nail or to the ends of your finger right before your nail. The matrix, a layer of cells at the base of your fingernail, is in charge of building the nail. If it’s damaged, the spots can pop up. Less commonly, white spots that do not go away could be due to a fungal infection.

2. Brittle Nails: This symptom can happen because of lifestyle factors such as if you have your hands in water a lot (washing dishes, swimming, etc.), use nail polish remover frequently, are exposed to chemicals (such as cleaning products) often, or live in a region with low humidity. Also, if you suffer from hypothyroidism it’s possible to see brittleness, too.

3. Horizontal Ridges: A deep horizontal ridge with normal nail on either side means there was some specific trauma, high stress, illness, or other metabolic disruption for a defined period before the nail went back to growing normally.

4. Vertical Ridges:
Vertical ridges are typically a normal sign of aging and are not a cause for concern. They may become more prominent as you get older. In some cases, nail ridges may be de to nutrient deficiencies, including vitamin B12 and magnesium.

5. Clubbing: Clubbing describes when your fingertips become enlarged and the nail becomes curved downward. An increase in the tissue around the ends of your fingers, right where the nail curves, can indicate lung disease which is caused by low oxygen in the blood. Clubbing can also be related to liver or kidney disease, heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and AIDS.

6. Yellow Nails: Your nails may yellow with age or due to the use of acrylic nails or nail polish. Smoking can also stain nails a yellowish hue. If your nails are thick, crumbly, and yellow, a fungal infection could be to blame. Less commonly, yellow nails may be related to thyroid disease, diabetes, psoriasis, or respiratory disease (such as chronic bronchitis).

Do your fingernails look yellowish? This may be due to dirt, polish, smoking, genetics or even health problems. But unless the discoloration is very noticeable or your nails are very yellow which may require a visit to a doctor, it is normal to have mild nail discoloration at some point in your life and there are many ways to deal with it. Here are 5 ways to lighten your nails.

1. Tea Tree Oil: Sometimes, nail yellowing happens due to a fungal infection, if this is your case, tea tree oil should be the way to go. Being a natural fungicide makes it the perfect choice to whiten your nails. You’ll apply the straight oil to your nail beds, leave it on for five minutes, rinse and repeat twice per day until clear.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar: It works really well in case of nail paint stains or fungal infections. Mix equal portions of water and apple cider vinegar, and then soak your nails in this mixture. Remove them and pat them with a wet towel. Do it at least four times a day for one week to see a good result.

3. Warm Milk: Milk is another super way not only to whiten your skin but your nails as well. Soak your nails for around 15 minutes in lukewarm pure milk. Remove them and pat them with a wet towel. Do it at least 4 times a day for one week to see changes.

4. Baking Soda: Baking soda works great for many beauty purposes and it is also one of the most popular ways to whiten nails. Mix baking soda and olive oil until a thick paste is formed, apply to the nail and leave on for a couple minutes. Repeat as often as needed.

5. Fruits: Aside from lemons, you can also use fruits like oranges or juniper berries to whiten your nails. If you’ll be eating an orange every day, you can save your orange peel and rub your nails with it two to three times daily (make sure it’s fresh each day). Within a few weeks, you’ll start to see results. Like we said, you can also use juniper berries. Add one teaspoon of these berries all crushed up into a bowl of warm water. Repeat this once daily before you head to bed.

Do you have to apply a coat of nail polish at all the times to hide your yellow nails? If your answer is yes, don’t worry, you are not alone. Many girls suffer from the yellowness of their nails which can happen because of the excessive use of nail polish without giving your nails a break or for some other reasons. So you need to prevent stained nails from happening by applying a base coat on your nails before using the nail polish. But if you nails are already stained you don’t have to polish them at all the times anymore, you can whiten them naturally with few ingredients. Here are 4 amazing home remedies you can try to naturally whiten your nails.

1. Lemon Juice and Baking Soda: A super easy homemade method to whiten your nails is to use this amazing remedy of lemon juice and baking soda. Squeeze half of a lemon (or more) into a plastic bowl, and then add the baking soda and mix the two ingredients until you get a paste that can stick to your nails. Then use an old toothbrush to scrub your nails with it. Rinse your hands with warm water, then make sure to apply hand/nail cream.

2. Whitening Toothpaste: Another effective yet easy way to whiten your nails is to apply toothpaste on your nails. All you need to do is to gently rub your nails with a soft toothpaste for two minutes. If your nails are still stained, you can repeat this process. The white colored pasty toothpaste works best as opposed to the blue or green gel-like toothpaste. And you can make this remedy more effective by adding baking soda to the whitening toothpaste.

3. 3% Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda: Mix 2 ½ teaspoon of baking soda with 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide until you’ve got a nice paste. Cover your nails with it, rub your nails gently with a toothbrush and then allow the mixture to sit on them for about 3 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.

4. White Vinegar: You can also whiten your nails using white vinegar. Add one tablespoon of white vinegar to a small cup of water and leave your nails soaked in it for 5 minutes. Don’t forget to apply hand and nail cream to keep them moisturized.

Cracked nails are frustrating problem that a lot of people suffer from. Women and the elderly are particularly prone to this condition. Before going through the solution of this problem, let us explain first what the causes of cracked nails are. In fact, cracked nails usually result from external problems such as exposing your hands to harsh soaps, cleaning products, and solvents when your nails expose to such chemicals they begin to fray on the edges, becoming brittle and the layers will spill.

Another reason that can cause your nails to crack is your age. As we age, our nails lose their natural oils which act as a glue to hold the nail layers together. Too much exposure to water, lack of moisture, and repetitive application of nail polish or nail polish remover are also main factors that can cause cracked nails. Those are the reasons, but the following are the solution for this problem:

1. Trim: Trimming your nails short, round and neat leaves them with a less chance of cracking. Make them short and round the sides with a file. Remember that, nails don’t grow very fast, so don’t risk snagging them.

2. Moisturize: You need to keep your nails well moisturized as dry nails lead to cracked nails. Apply a moisturizer to your cuticles and nails regularly. It is highly recommended to apply the moisturizer when your hands are wet, put the moisturizer after your bath or shower, or after washing your hands. Do it as often as possible and also apply the moisturizer before bed. Choose a good moisturizer that includes protein like keratin and collagen; occlusives such as petrolatum, mineral oil or lanolin; and humectants like urea or lactic acid. Such ingredients will strengthen your nails and prevent dryness.

3. Wear Gloves: If you are often exposed to chemicals or of your hands are regularly wet, it is advisable to wear gloves. You can go for plastic or latex gloves, but if plastic gloves are uncomfortable for you can choose rubber gloves with a cotton lining.

4. Cut Down the Remover: Using nail polish remover more than every two weeks can cause brittle nails. If you are fascinated with nail polish and you can’t limit your using of polish remover, choose the nail polish remover that is acetone-free.

5. Avoid Chemicals: As we mentioned above cleaning products or some dishwashing liquids can dry and brittle your nails. Thus, you need to wash your dishes with less harsh products and limit your exposur

Nail art is a popular beauty procedure that women use it to get their nails amazing look. By choosing the decorative design you want, you can complete any outfit and enhance your look. There are a variety of nail art designs available on nail salons and some of them can be designed at home. And here we will talk about some of the most common nail art designs.

Hand-painted artwork is very easy to do. Many people tend to add some flowers to their nails. For the background, it is better to choose a pale color and choose a much brighter color for the petals of the flowers. And for the center, it can be a lighter shade than the petals. This design can be done with the nail polish brush.

Adding texture to the nails can make them look attractive. You can do this by adding a swirl with two paints. Paint the brighter color on the nail first and before it dries add some white drops with a toothpick. And use the toothpick to swirl the two colors together. Then let your nails dry completely as they will take a while to dry because of the thickness.

The airbrushing technique is available at salons and also it can be done at home if you have an airbrushing machine. It’s a lot easier and cheaper to go to the salon to have this done. Spraying on a design take a few time and some people prefer to add some ons like decals, piercing, or rhinestones as they are easy to apply. These can be added on top of a fresh coat of paint. Rhinestones are either stuck into the wet paint or adhered to the nail with a special glue.

For decals, there are two types that can be added to fingernails. The fist one is decals that use water to stick them on and the second type requires rubbing. They both come on a sheet of paper which contains many other decals on it, choose the one you like and cut it out of the paper and place it on the nail. The back of the decal is either wet or rubbed according to the required method.

Then the paper is removed and the decal is stuck into place on the fingernail. Fingernail piercings are not painful because they are only on the tip of the fingernail itself and they can be a hoop or a stud.

The look of the finger is important for every lady as the great look of your fingers can greatly enhance your beauty. Every woman needs to take care of her fingers and nails to stay beautiful. Shellac nail polish is one of the recent products that hits nail salons.

The process of getting your nails painted with Shellac starts with choosing the nail polish color you want. Then the manicurist cuts the cuticles, files the nails, and buffs them. Then she will apply three layers to your nails, it will start with the base coat, then the color coat and the final layer will be the top coat. After you have applied the nail paint, you will place your fingers under a UV lamp for about 3 to 4 minutes.

Once the top coat has dried completely, you can leave the salon without any problems. And this is not the case with the other manicures as you need to be careful not to get the nail polish smudged. One of the advantages of getting your nails painted with shellac is that the manicure can last for 2 weeks. Moreover, the shine of the manicure stays intact for the entire time.

The downside is that you can’t apply or remove Shellac nails at home. You need to go for the salon to get it removed by a manicurist. Another point is that UV rays in the lamps are somewhat similar to the ones in tanning beds so it can be harmful to your skin. So you have to apply SPF 60 sunscreen to your hands at least 30 minutes before exposure to the UV lamp.

After applying Shellac nail polish you have to take care of your nails by following some tips:

1. To protect your nails, it is advisable to use a nail and cuticle oil every day.
2. It is preferable to wear gloves while doing any works that are hard on the hands like washing dishes, cleaning the house, and gardening.
3. If anything caused the Shellac to chip or lift, don’t try to deal with it all you need to do is to take a photo and send it to your salon and they will give you the best advice.
4. After swimming, you need to wash your hands and dry them because the chlorinated water can have a slight bleaching effect on some colors.

Nowadays, gel nails are one of the popular trends in nail enhancements. Although these nails have many pros, many people face a problem with this trend which is that gel nails are very difficult to remove. You have to go to a salon to have them removed. But if you don’t have enough time to go to a salon or you don’t want to spend money to remove them? Fortunately, there are easy ways to remove your gel nails from the comfort of your home.

Method 1: Put a dental floss under a part where is a visible lift. And gently pull the floss up and down until it moves across the entirety of the nail. This technique can be done with the use of a cuticle stick, but take care not to dig too hard under the gel because you may damage your natural nail.


Method 2
: Fill half a large bowl with warm water, then put a small bowl filled with acetone inside the large bowl. Let it sit for 3 to 5 minutes. Then remove the acetone bowl from the large bowl to prevent overheating. Be attentive while doing this because acetone is flammable, so keep the acetone away from any direct heat sources.

Protect the skin around your nails with petroleum jelly. Use a cotton swab to apply the petroleum jelly around the edges of your nails. Dip fingers in the acetone bowl and soak for 30 minutes. By using cotton balls rub the gel off your nails. Then you can file your nails to the shape you want and buff them with a nail buffer to remove rough edges.

Method 3: This way is really good for people with sensitive skin. Dip the cotton balls in acetone and put them on your nails. Then cover each nail with aluminum squares and let your nails soak in acetone for 30 minutes. If you don’t have aluminum foil, you can use masking tape instead. Remove the foil and the cotton balls from your nails and wipe the loosened gels with cuticle sticks. Then shape your nails with a nail file and buff them with a nail buffer.

When filing your nails, file only in one direction in order not to damage your nails. Moisturize your nails and hands with lotion or cosmetic oil. Your nails might get dry because of the acetone, so treat them gently for some days. And wait one week before applying any other gels.

Visiting the beauty salon for having a nail art design must be costing you some money, so what about saving some money and let’s do these nail art designs at home. I know you see many designs and you say, I can’t do this one at home, but trust me by time you will find yourself doing amazing designs and you know what else? You will start improvising some of your own as well.

The best thing to do is to start easy, start with the simple designs like, applying different color to each nail of your hands.

You see, it sounds so simple, but it’s different and it’s good as a beginning too. Use the effecting nail polish as a simple beginning too; simply buy any kind of the effecting nail polisher like, crackle, crock or magnetic.

They are so easy to use, just apply a base coat at first and then apply nail polish with any preferred color that matches with the effect you choose, apply the effect polisher you got and finally apply a top coat and enjoy your home made nail art.

I love that one, am taking about the strips art design, it’s way easy and it looks gorgeous, you can do it by applying a nail polish of your choice let’s say black for example and then you can either use other nail polish color like gold to draw the strips or you can use strip tape, you will find it in make up and cosmetics shops with various colors.

This is a glowing idea, use the rhinestones to make a glamorous nail art design, you can do several nail arts using rhinestones, for example, you can apply blank polish and then apply the rhinestones in the order you like then apply a top coat to firm them and you can use them with colored nail polisher as well like beige, black and you can apply them with French manicure too.

Looking for another glowing nail art? Try the glitter one, you can apply it in many ways, for example, you can simply apply a blank nail polisher and then you can simply apply any glitter color only to your nail tips or you can apply a black nail polish to your entire nails then add the glitter to the lower parts of you nails. Remember there are no certain rules for nail art designs; just go for what you love.

These were some simple nail art designs for beginners, but trust me with some practice and by time you will no longer be a beginner. Nail art design is kind of art for sure, so if you have any drawing skills, you can use some of them in drawing some nail art designs as sort of distinction.

Nail art designs are so popular nowadays, you see pictures of many shapes and designs everywhere on facebook pages or instagram and may be you say to yourself these designs look hard to be done at home and I should head to a salon or buy some stickers but you know what? You can do some perfect and easy designs at home.

All what you will need to start with is having good looking nails I mean clean, healthy, evenly shaped nails, good nail polish, toothpick, brushes with fine tips, pure acetone to clear any mess, cotton pads and top coat to get a shiny and long lasting nail art.

Let’s start with the simplest designs that will take no effort and less time. Dots design, it can be done by mixing two different colors of your choice, you can go for the colors that matches with what you wear, let’s say you will make it white and black design or like its called the polka dots, start by applying white nail polish on your entire nail wait until it dries then add some black dots and wait until it dries too then you can apply the top coat.

Looking for some glowing design? If your answer is yes, try the glitter one, simply apply a clear polish on your nail, wait until it dries and then apply glitter on your nail’s tip and you are free to choose the glitter color that you like, finally add the top coat to get a perfect and shiny final look.

This one will sound weird, but you need to prepare some lace for it, yes, it’s a lace nail design. Don’t be surprised it looks good and it’s so easy to do, simply you will cut lace pieces that fit your nails size, then you will apply a clear polish on your nails and then you will apply the lace pieces firmly on each nail and to get better result, remember to apply the top coat.

Do you love animal prints like, tiger, leopard or zebra? If your answer is yes, then I think you will love this one. You can easily apply any of these prints as a nail design, for example, the tiger print is easily done by applying orange or yellow nail polish, wait until it dries then use a black polish to print zigzag black lines and make sure to make it thick just like the tiger print.

You can make your nail design matching with some occasions like Valentine’s Day for example; you can simply apply white polish on your nails and after it dries, start drawing hearts or write love using the red polish. It will look so amazing and passionate. You can use the same idea with different colors in any other occasions like New Year for example, You can apply dark blue nail polish to your nails and after it dries you can write the year like 2016 or simply draw stars using white or sliver nail polish.

The previous ideas are for those who have standard skills in drawing, but of course you are free to draw whatever you want as long as you have the required skills. There are other easy ways for nail art design like, nail stickers, it’s a new and faster way to apply a nail design, you simply stick them on your nails and you cut any extras.

It’s an easy way to get the design you want just in a blink of an eye, but it may not last as you expect, you can lose them easily and for sure you won’t that happen if you are at your friend’s wedding for example, applying top coat may help it to survive for longer times, but it’s not so granted. There are thousands of ideas you can use when it comes to nail art design, just go for the one that you love and comfortable with.

With all the crowded life that you live in, you try to find some time to pamper yourself, so you look for fast and easy ways that don’t take time and give you amazing results as well. Gel nails are a very fast and easy way to pamper your nails with, they are so easy to apply, maintain and they are safe as well.

Let’s talk more about gel nails; they are made from three ingredients, polymer powder, monomer liquid and oligomer which give the gel nail its flexibility and its natural look. Speaking of natural look, gel nails are considered as the best artificial nails that is so close to the natural nails look than any other type like acrylic for example. When you decide to apply the gel nail you will have to choose from two types.

The first type is called light cured in which the gel is applied on your nails and then left under UV light for about couple of minutes until it’s cured or in other words until it’s totally hardened on your nails. The other type is called no light gel nail, it’s an easier type and you can simply do it yourself at home by adding a gel activator on your nails before adding the gel itself. It doesn’t need much experience or any kind of specific light.

If you choose to apply gel nails, you will have variety of options to choose from when it comes to the shapes and lengths. You can choose long, medium or short nails and you can choose any shape you like from oval, square, rounded or you can go sharp and choose the stiletto shape.

Gel nails like anything, it has two sides, a good and a bad one. Let’s talk about the good part first, gel nails are as I said before, they look so natural but you know what else makes it a good choice? It’s so flexible, thin and it has an amazing glowing and shiny look.

You may hate this one, but you know like I said everything has two sides and the bad side of gel nails is being so weak which will make it so easy to break and unfortunately you won’t be able to fix at home, but you will have to give a visit to a professional beauty salon.

For sure nothing will replace your amazing natural nails, but these kinds of nails are more like accessories or solutions to some problems like short, broken or damaged nails.

Your hands will look like what you want it to look like in no time and with less effort, but my advice to you is not to forget about taking care of your natural nails, they are still part of you and they need your attention too, eventually any artificial nails won’t last forever.

Are you a fan of Nail polish? Do you have tons of it? Or Do you hate it and it is not your thing? Well, love or hate you will not debate its use after reading this:

1. Put a stop to a stockings run
We have all been there, it is a universal struggle. Now we can put an end to it by applying some nail polish right under the run. You will love it!

2. Cover up scratches
Scartches on any surface tend to waste its aesthetic value, but not any more. Use your nail polish to cover up scratches on any surface, from shoes and boots to wood and plastic. The choices are nearly endless in colours.

3. Color-fading jewellery
Ordinary jewellery tend to be affected by the alcohol in body deodorants, body chemicals, water and event sweat. To prevent the colour of your jewellery from fading away, apply a layer of transparent nail polish on them before first use. You will be amazed!

4. Change your jewellery!
Do you get bored easily? Want to feel like you are always wearing something new and do not have the money for it? Good. Our technique does not involve spending your money on new jewellery. Change the colour of your jewellery by apply some new nail polish colour. Feel new and fresh!

5. Needle threading was never easier!
If you always had trouble threading a needle, now we tell you it has never been easier. Dip the tip of the thread in some nail polish, it will make it easier to thread a needle faster.

6. New bobby pins
Make your bobby pins more colourful by adding some nail polish on them. However, be careful you do not want to get any nail polish on the lower side of the bobby pins. Having nail polish on this side will transfer the colour to your hair.

7. Keys
Another smart way to use nail polish is to paint the upper part of your keys. It will make it easier to recognise them specially if you have a lot of keys.

8. Envelopes
A transparent nail polish can be used to seal envelopes as well. Use it where it used to stick and it will be effective and clean.

9. Paint the soles of your shoes
It is trendy right now to have colourful shoes’ soles. Try it with nail polish but remember to contain the nail polish by placing some tape around the soles.

10. Organise your nail polish
If you have lots of nail polish colours, paint the top of each one. This will make it easy to recognise each color without picking every one and putting it back.

Manicure makes the hand look prettier and more alluring. However, there is a number of bad habits that we do unknowingly that wreck our manicure. Learn more about these habits to avoid blowing away your beauty sessions.

1. You are too haste
There is no worse thing you can do to your manicure than not allowing it enough time to dry. It is the most common mistake we do with our manicure and it absloutely ruins it for us. Remember those last-minute manicure applications? Can you recall any of them succeeding? That’s because we never let them dry properly.

2. Doing your chores without protecting your nails
Manicure is not made to endure the dishwashing detergents or the laundry soap. Those chemicals are drastically harsh on your skin, nails and even your manicure. Make it your habbit to always wear a dry rubber glove while doing the dishes or cleaning anything with detergents. Make sure your rubber glove is dry before you wear it and so is your hand but why? If not, the moist and the friction can cause the glove to work against you and your manicure will be ruined.

3. Cutting your cuticles
Cutting your cuticles damages your nails and makes you manicure chip easier. Just ignoring them also is not the way to solve either. Instead, you should use a pushing tool to push them back. Also, make it a habit to massage your cuticles with some cuticle oil every night before going to bed.

4. Finish your nails
Sometimes, we skip the top coat phase to shorten the process and it backfires. The top coat strengthens brittle nails and protect them from damage.

5. Number of coats
How many coats should we apply? Should be thick or thin? Nail experts advise to apply three thin coats instead of two thick ones as it makes better layering in the nail. So, apply three thin coats and seal the entire coat by swiping your polish at the edges.

6. Water
Water makes our nails expand and they re-contract once dry. This process of expanding and contracting affect the nails badly. Thus, avoid exposing your nails to water for too long while bathing as this will lead to polish chipping and peeling.
