There are few things in the world that are more well respected than a fabulous set of long, strong, flawless looking nails.

Twila True Beauty’s line of nourishing beauty products are designed specifically to help women embrace their uniqueness and beauty while still remaining healthy and happy. One of the simplest ways to begin to embrace healthier beauty practices is by reevaluating the way in which you care for your nails. Read on to learn 6 simple tips for keeping your nails looking long, strong, flawless, and healthier than ever before!

  1. Remember the Base-ics

Although it’s easy to get tempted into skipping the application of a base coat before painting your nails, this step is of the utmost importance and should never be forgotten, especially if you’re interested in making your nails look healthier and stronger. The application of a base coat before putting on various shades of nail lacquer helps to keep your nails from getting stained by polish, and also provides your nails with an additional layer of protection. Before applying any shade of nail lacquer, remember to incorporate Twila True Beauty’s Fortifying Base Coat into your day-to-day manicure routine.

  1. Invest in An Emery Board

For women who are always on the go, the feeling of disappointment and distress that comes along with breaking a nail is all too familiar. The more active you are, the more likely you are to break a nail. Keeping an emery board or nail file on hand in your purse or wallet will ensure that you can stop nail breakage before it starts by filing away rough, jagged edges that appear on your nails throughout the day. Nail shaping will help to keep your nails looking flawless.

  1. Disinfect Regularly

Bacteria is the number one enemy of your cuticles, so it is extremely important to disinfect your nail tools regularly. Use a simple solution made of soap and water to scrub your nail tools clean, then swipe them with rubbing alcohol and set them out to dry for proper cuticle care.

  1. Moisture Is Key

Keeping your cuticles happy and moisturized will ensure that your nails are able to stay comfortable and clean. Try out Twila True Beauty’s Hand Cream: its smooth, clump-free formula and nourishing ingredients will provide your hands with deep, intense hydration.

  1. Happy Tummy, Happy Nails

Surprisingly, we can often affect how our nails grow by starting at the source. Eat foods that are rich in protein and Vitamin E, like beans, fish, and nuts to naturally grow nails that are longer and less prone to breakage.

  1. Keep Your Nails Clean

Before you apply any sort of treatment to your nails, you will want to be certain that they are clean and under control from the get-go. Make sure to wash your hands regularly and gently scrub your nails before you give yourself a manicure.
