The article offers nail care and manicuring tips. To prevent nails from weakening and to keep them looking great and tidy, it is recommended that the nail file be moved in one direction instead of a sawing action. To prevent rainbow polish staining nails, it is advisable to use a clear base coat. If nails are always breaking, it is best to paint on a nail hardener every day for four days, and then take it all off and start again. This will help them grow stronger and faster.
