Every lady wants to have lovely nails and that includes those of us who bite ours off out of habit. Fortunately, there are simple recipes that can give you very pretty nails in no time.
One the most common reasons for unattractive nails is having weak nails. Because they break-off easily, your nails will not have the opportunity to grow to the length you desire neither will they be strong.
When your nails are strong and healthy, they contribute to your having feminine looking hands ( and who wouldn’t want that)
We have put together a list of three simple, homemade recipes that will give you the type of nails you desire within a short time.
1. Lemon juice and sea salt
Mix 1 tablespoon of sea salt with 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice in half litre of warm water and soak your bare natural nails in the bath for 15 minutes. Rinse well and moisturise your hands with hydrating hand lotion or shea butter. If you repeat this process every other day for 2 weeks, your nails should become stronger, healthier and your nail colour lighter.
2. Olive oil, honey and egg
Mix 4 table spoons of slightly warmed olive oil (it shouldn’t be hot, the oil should be comfortable to touch) with 2 table spoons of raw honey and 1 whisked egg; mix all the ingredients properly and dip your bare nails into this treatment for 10-15 minutes, then wash your hands with warm water (without using a soap). If you do this natural nail care treatment about 2 times a week during 2-3 weeks, your nails should become stronger, more elastic and less brittle. This homemade nail beauty bath will also help hydrate your hands.
3. Lemon juice and olive oil
Lemon juice and olive oil treatment can help strengthen your nails and prevent chipping. To prepare this treatment mix 3 table spoons of olive oil with 1 table spoon of lemon juice; place your bare nails into this nail beauty bath for about 10-15 minutes and then, rinse with water. Use this treatment once or twice a week during 3 weeks and see your nails get healthier, stronger and free from chipping.
