File your nails only in one direction. Sawing back and forth will only cause splitting. Your nails are strongest when you shape them into an oval. But when you make them pointier, they are more likely to break. Do your manicure once a week. Your nails are part of your body and you should take care of them. You don't have to visit saloons necessarily, you can take good care of them even at home if you follow the right process.

Your nails are 18% water. Yet they are so hard because they are made up of millions of tiny keratin cells packed firmly together. Nails that bend are a sign of loose arrangement of cells. When the keratin fibers are less than the average, the resulting nails are thinner. If you have thin nails, you can use nail hardeners, but avoid the ones that contain acetone or formaldehyde.


    Eat healthy for gorgeous nails

    6. Eat healthy

    Your nails are a perfect mirror of your health. When you are not healthy from inside, you won't have gorgeous nails. Lack of vitamin A and calcium will make your nails dry and brittle. Lack of folic acid, protein, and vitamin C causes hang nails. Lack of sufficient hydrochloric acid will cause your nails to split. Insufficient zinc will cause formation of white spots on the nail.
