Natural Nail Care: 9 DIY Tips & Tricks

Keep your hands very clean

Clean nails with acetone-free remover, then scrub gently with soapy toothbrush to remove dirt and exfoliate without drying.

Tip 1

Keep Your Fingernails Dry And Clean

Clean and dry your nails regularly to prevent bacteria growth and dirt accumulation, but avoid prolonged soaking in water to prevent nail splitting.

Tip 2


Moisturize nails and cuticles with almond and avocado oil. Massage and leave overnight for hydrated, strong nails.

Tip 3

Trim nails regularly

Trim nails straight across to prevent curved or ingrown nails. Avoid cutting them too short.

Tip 4

Be gentle on your nails

Treat your nails delicately, avoiding excessive use of metal tools to prevent onycholysis.

Tip 5

Stop Biting Your Nails

Avoid nail biting as it weakens nails, damages cuticles, and spreads germs. Use a bad-smelling nail polish to deter the habit.

Tip 6

Tame Your Cuticles

Care for your cuticles by gently pushing them back or trimming them, but avoid cutting or pulling. This protects your nails from infections.

Tip 7

Apply A Base Coat For Protection

Use basecoat to protect and enhance your nail polish. It prevents discoloration and makes the polish look better.

Tip 8

Prioritize nail health over length

Short nails are stronger and easier to manage. Keep them rounded and uniform in shape for a neat look without extra wear and tear.
