It's been said that in the way a woman dresses, shoes are always the smallest detail that makes all the difference. The same thing can be said about nails for the general beauty. You can wear a perfect make-up and have the perfect hair, if your nails are not taken care of, surprisingly, this will be one of the first things to be noticed. On the other hand, even without a great outfit, exceptional beautiful nails will always attract admiration and positive jealousy from women and interest from men. The hands and nails are to be considered one of the sexiest sides of women.
Women's taste is variants ot in the way they like their nails to be done, short or long, simple or extravagant, plain colored or with special designs. Longer nails are generally considered to be sexier as they seem to somehow make a difference between a girl and a woman. But girly can be sexy also and very long nails are sometimes not quite aesthetic.
No matter the size or shape, any nail look can be consistently improved by just a couple of simple actions.
1. Always keep your nails clean. Clean the nails and the area under your nails any time it's needed. If using colored nail polish, do not forget to wipe it off and reapply it every time it starts looking not so fresh. Nails with half pealed nail polish look bad and sends the wrong massage.
2. Push back or cut your cuticles every 2-3 days. These procedures make the nail look much cleaner and longer on the finger, ignoring its full aesthetic potential.
Whether you chose to just push the cuticle back or to push them back in order to cut them, do it gently and without putting too much pressure on the nail. Pushing on the nail makes future nail growth wavy.
If you chose to cut them, always do it with a clean, special, thin and sharp scissors, investing allot of care and patience. Wounds look bad for a couple of days and they are also a high risk for the area to get inflamed, or even infected. Also, if you cut them, it's better to do it pretty often, before they get to grow too much. When cutting grown cuticles the remaining of the skin has the tension to shred and lift in small pieces, an effect that does not appear when they are regularly cut.
Use cuticle oil or hand cream at least once a day, nicely rubbing it on the nail area. This makes the cuticles and the skin around the nails softer and more flexible, preventing the skin from lifting and the edges dryness.
3. Use transparent top or colored nail polish on your nails. Even the shortest, simplest nail will look cleaner and better with a transparent nail polish on top. Also, there is a very large range of transparent nail polish type of products that will help you keep your nails healthy. The colored nail polishes are the ones to bring it on though.
We have to admit that, most of the women if not all are fascinated with colors and our nails give us the perfect opportunity to play with them.
The general rule says for short nails more natural colors to be used and sets no limits for the long ones. But not everyone agreements with this rule. Strong colors on short nails are very sexy and states a strong personality. They bring to you the Tomboy style of a tough, sexy woman.
So, in the world of colors, anything is allowed. What to do with so much freedom?
The best of all is one step forward, mixing them and getting an artistic design on your nails.
4. Get a surprising design on your nails.
It always sounds more complicated than it really is. Sometimes, a simple stripe placed in the middle of the nail or a couple of dots arranged in the shape of a flower can make a world of a difference and does not take too much of a talent or time. There are also a lot of tools on the market that will help you to achieve such creativity with almost no effort. There are special colors for nail art, more dense and with a narrow brush or a small pipe (like a pen), that offers you a pretty high precision in applying the nail polish colors.
If you want an even more complex design you still do not need to be a specialist to do them, a very easy way is using one of the smART nails design templates. The result looks like you've done it yourself, only with no mistakes, and you are also free to use any of your old nail polishes in the process. It also gives you the freedom of multiple combinations and personal adding.
No matter the method you used in adding the nail art spice to your nails, after you got it all dry, apply a transparent coat on top, to cover and protect your creation.
If you want to make your friends really jealous about the way you look, just do not forget about your nails!
