Psst…Pay Attention To Your Nails As They Are A Window To Your Health

Most of us are careless when it comes to nail care and only do the little bit of care, such as applying some cuticle oil or moisturiser every now and then. Moreover, avoiding nail paint when the nail appears yellow. But believe us, taking care of nails is essential too, even if they’re strong.

When was the last time you actually take care of your nails? Look at your nails, they might be telling a lot about your health.

Nail Breaking Frequently:

You’ll be amazed to know that vitamins and iron deficiency, such as E and D, can be responsible for breaking and weakening nails. Other factors that can cause weak nails are poor diet, stress, alcohol, and even your monthly nail extension appointments.

Nakey nails 😳 Okay not exactly because I took this after applying gel base coat, but still. Fun fact about my nails: they’re super thin and bendy, so I can’t have them longer than the nail line without wearing gel polish or they do contortionist moves when bumped against anything. My index finger is particularly prone to peeling at one place and will do so if left to its own devices. You can see the much thinner area on that nail. My left hand is not quite as bad, but both index fingers need an extra layer of hard gel to make it through the week. They’ve been like this as long as I can remember so I’m not sure if it’s a genetic thing or if I injured my fingers when I was younger. That said, my dad and aunt both have paper thin nails too so that’s probably hereditary. This is the first time I’ve had my nails long for any prolonged period of time (this is long for me, but I see you crazy loooong nailed people on insta!) and it’s weird and slightly inconvenient because they keep getting in the way. But I do like how they look with holo on them so… 🤷‍♀️ Thank you @natalianails2013 for featuring me! #softnails #flexiblenails #nakednails #peelingnails #nailsofinstagram #nailaddict #weaknails #gelnails
