Get Your Nails Up to Scratch for Your Wedding!

We have just the article to help you out with getting beautiful nails for your wedding!

First things first, you need to determine what your problem is and determine it early! As per normal suggestions, start three months before the wedding. Examine your nails. If you have nails that are slightly yellow, clear, or that constantly break – keeping you from having long gorgeous nails, a few things could be the cause.

- Your diet may not have enough protein. To remedy this, try drinking a glass of milk per day and adding eggs and fish to your diet. You can also take vitamin B to help strengthen your nails.

- Your nails may be suffering from constant chemical damage from acetones, bleach or laundry detergent. To remedy this, try removing nail polishes less often and use gloves when washing dishes or hand-washing laundry.

- You may have a fungal infection. Avoid constantly damp conditions and try to dry your nails very well after getting them wet. Clean them often with a nail-cleaning stick (sometimes found on nail clippers). There are also medications to help with fungal infections under nails.

Once your nails are fine (or if they were already), learn how to properly maintain them. Filing should always be done in one motion, never back and forth. Trim and care for your cuticles. Clip your nails as often as possible to prevent them from breaking when they get too long. You don’t have to clip them all the way, just a trim will do. It has been suggested that clipping nails can help lead to faster growth. You can also apply clear supplemental nail polishes that harden and protect, giving you a coat of nail-security.

If you want long, shiny yet natural nails for your wedding, you can also regularly visit a manicurist who can pamper your nails to a beautiful polish-free shine and can put nail growth solutions on them.

If all else fails or you simply want fancier nails, you can always get an acrylic or gel manicure. Just remember that the application and removal of these fake nails will damage the integrity of your own. Make sure you get your nails done no more than a day before the wedding. You don’t want to see spaces of nail growth and you don’t want to scratch and chip them before the wedding.

Getting your nails to a beautiful state can take some time. We can’t remind you enough to start early! Don’t expect your nails to be up to scratch overnight or even within a week. Before trying to fix them from the outside, remember that beauty begins on the inside!
