  • Don't bite or pick! The first step to having healthy nails, is to avoid biting them, this will increase the chance of having those nails you so desire! Moreover, damaging the nail bed can invite bacterial and fungal infections.
    Use a nail brush. Cleaning with a nail brush is a gentle way to remove dirt, dead skin, and bacteria from underneath your nails. This is especially important if you bite your nails.
    Take biotin supplements. Although there isn't much evidence to indicate that taking additional vitamin supplements will improve your nail health, it may strengthen weak nails.

  • Moisturise your hands. Get in the habit of using moisturizer, which it helps feed moisture to your nails, preventing hangnails and keeping your hands soft.
    Don’t pull off hangnails. This often tears the healthy tissue around the nail bed, which looks unsightly and can lead to infection.
    Keep your nails dry. Excessive moisture can cause your nails to grow brittle and split, so wear gloves when washing dishes and avoid soaking your hands in the tub.
    Wear gloves when using harsh chemicals. Strong cleaning agents like bleach and laundry detergent can weaken nails.

  • If you have brittle nails, apply clear nail polish. This will help your nails retain their natural moisture. If you tend to have paper-thin nails, there are nail hardeners that have fibers in the liquid which help tremendously.

  • Consider growing out your nails. Long, strong nails are the envy of every girl who sees them. Note that once you begin growing your own nails, it can take months to get them where you want them.
    If you’re looking for a quick fix, wear fake nails. Although acrylic nails aren’t likely to damage your real ones, avoid applying them with unsanitary tools or allowing them to separate from the natural nails, both of which can invite infection.
