You can become a professional after you finish your classes for getting a license. But first things first, learn how to keep your nails strong and healthy and after that we will talk about money.
Create good nail habits. First of all, you must stop biting your nails. If that nasty habit is already there it might be hard to stop it, but just think of all the bacterias that are getting in your mouth after your hands have been on the steering wheel and all the things that you’ve touched in the last 20 minutes, it’s simply disgusting. I hope that image of harmful dirt in your mouth will reduce the desire for putting your nail in your mouth.
File your nails regularly. Naturally, the nails grow unevenly, so if you want them to look good, you should file them at least every week. Replace the file every month and file in the same direction to prevent any damage or cracks.
Drink water and eat well. That’s a must-do in general, not only for your nails.
Analyze your nails. You know what is the type of your skin or face, but if you want to grow strong and beautiful nails you should decide which type they are. Here are the types: dry, brittle, damaged, soft and normal. You should take special care for each type, except for the normal one. If you have dry nails – moist them with olive oil. The brittle nails need moisturizer too. For damaged nails you’d better see a doctor. The soft nails are too moisturized and when you work with water, wear gloves.
Be careful with the nail polishes. When you apply dark colors always put a base coat underneath the dark colored nail polish. And don’t apply different nail polish too often, because of the staining and the acetone. If you have to switch the colors, you’ll have to remove the previous color. But the acetone dries the nails. Search for nail polish remover which has a low level of acetone in it.
When you are not wearing any nail polish, apply nail strengthener, even the cheap one will be better than no strengthener at all. Enjoy your long and gorgeous nails!
