Health can be determined by your nail color. Healthy nails are translucent and look a little pinkish because of the blood underneath. Removal of all nail varnish every week and allowing nails for breathing are important. Nails can be made to shine by massaging coconut oil or warm castor oil on them. You can also apply dry soap to your nail and buff, or you can use lemon peel with the same result. A cotton-tipped swab moistened in hydrogen-peroxide whitens the nails.
Dipping your nails in a mixture of cup of water with one tablespoon of lemon juice is wanted before a nail manicure. Your fingertips are to be inserted in half a lemon and you have to twist you fingers back and front to clean the cuticles and nails. Before applying nail varnish, you can apply a base coat of three smooth strokes from the nail bed to the nail tip and then allow to dry before giving a second coat and then a third coat.
