How to Have Beautiful Natural Nails

Beautiful, natural nails start with taking care of them. If your nails are peeling, they are most likely dry and dehydrated. This mainly comes from your hands being in a lot of water or in a lot of harsh, cleaning supplies. Most people never realize that your nails can become dehydrated from being in a lot of water, since water is hydrating. What happens, though, is that your nails are being stripped of their natural oils.

To solve this problem, two simple things will help. One, you should be using a cuticle oil at least once a day. It will help your natural nails replace the oils that they have lost. Two, you should wear gloves when your hands are in ANYTHING that you would never consider washing your face with. If you wouldn't put it on your face, it shouldn't be on your hands.

At the Purple Pinkie, we retail Haken oil. As you would expect, it is PURPLE! It also smells like the beach! Regular use of cuticle oil will not only replace oils, but it will keep your cuticles soft and help to diminish hang nails.

For those of you, who were not blessed with strong natural nails, you can use a system to help strengthen them. One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they overuse strengtheners. They are then left with dry, brittle nails, which is a whole new problem

We retail Zoom Nail Food system. It consists of Nail Eat, which is a strengthener and Nail Drink, which is a moisturizer. Depending on if your nails are soft and peeling or dry and brittle, you will start with whichever one you need. You will use it daily for two weeks, then switch to the other one. After four weeks, you will now be in the maintenance period, where you will use one daily for a week and then the other and keep on keeping on! This is one of the best products I have found that will allow you to grow beautiful, natural nails.
