Top Nail Care Tips for Healthy, Beautiful Nails

Welcome back to Nail Box Inspiration!

Today, we’re diving into the world of nail care. Beautiful nails start with a solid foundation of healthy nail care practices. Whether you’re a DIY manicure enthusiast or prefer professional salon treatments, these tips will help you achieve and maintain stunning nails. Let’s get started!

1. Nourish Your Nails with Proper Nutrition

Healthy nails begin from within. Your diet plays a crucial role in nail health. Ensure you’re getting enough:

  • Biotin: Found in eggs, nuts, and seeds, biotin strengthens nails and promotes growth.
  • Iron: Leafy greens, beans, and lean meats are great sources of iron, which prevents brittle nails.
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Foods like salmon, flaxseeds, and walnuts help keep your nails moisturized.

A balanced diet rich in these nutrients will give your nails the strength they need to grow long and strong.

2. Be Gentle with Your Nails

Your nails are delicate and require gentle handling. Here are some tips to prevent damage:

  • Avoid Using Your Nails as Tools: Don’t use your nails to open cans or scrape off stickers.
  • File in One Direction: Sawing back and forth can cause splits. Instead, file gently in one direction.
  • Wear Gloves: Protect your nails from harsh chemicals and excessive moisture by wearing gloves while cleaning or washing dishes.

Treat your nails with care, and they’ll reward you with strength and beauty.

3. Regular Manicures: DIY or Salon

Regular manicures help keep your nails looking their best. Whether you prefer a DIY approach or professional salon treatments, follow these tips:

  • Prep Your Nails: Start with clean, dry nails. Remove old polish and gently push back cuticles.
  • Use Quality Products: Invest in high-quality, non-toxic products like our Vegan Gel Nail Stickers for a healthy manicure.

Our DIY Gel Manicure Kit is perfect for achieving salon-quality results at home without the need for a UV light 'Bean' is our 15WLED Lamp.

4. Protect Your Nails

Maintaining your manicure is just as important as applying it. Here’s how to protect your polished nails:

  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Exposure to chemicals can damage your Nail Box gel nail stickers and nails. Opt for gentle, natural products.
  • Avoid oils: Just like with traditional gel nail manicures oil will impact the durability or your gel nail sticker manicure. Basically - Oil breaks down the adhesive and you will experience partial or complete lifting.

5. Give Your Nails a Break - Go Naked 

Even the healthiest nails need a break from polish or gel nail stickers and treatments. Allow your nails to breathe and go naked every now and again.

  • Natural Oils: Apply our 100% organic nail oil to keep your nails moisturized and healthy when NOT WEARING gel nail stickers. Our oil will breakdown the adhesive and should only be used when removing or when NOT using gel nail stickers - always wash and dry hands then use prep wipe prior to applying Nail Box gel nail stickers.
