TrieunaNail explained it best when they pointed out that having perfectly cared-for nails is crucial as these body parts can often be affected when exposed to certain weather, activities, dust, dirt, and so on. Your hands and feet work hard to keep you going. They deserve some attention.

A well-manicured nail isn't just an ornamental process. Your nails say a lot about your physical health and manicures go a long way in improving it. Joya.Life explains that having healthy nails help you make a strong impression on others.

Grooming your nails at home

No matter what nail design option you choose, never forget the basics of having clean and healthy nails in the first place. Some tips to consider include:

  • Use an old toothbrush: According to LadyLifeHacks, you can use an old toothbrush to scrub the nooks and crannies of your nails especially for removing leftover polish.
  • Soak and exfoliate: Stylecaster noted that this helps to soften your nail beds before you start painting or working on them. You can also use a hand scrub to smoothen the skin.
  • Lip balm hack: You can apply a lip balm on your nails to help keep them moist.
  • Wash your hands: Before applying your nail polish, you should degrease your hands and feet by simply washing them with soap and water. This improves the chance of your mani-pedi lasting longer.
