How To Make Your Nails Grow Longer And Stronger

If you’ve ditched the acrylics and taken a much-needed break from the gels, yet your nails are still brittle and flaky, we feel your pain. We are here to fix them by giving you some tips.

Use A Cuticle Oil: 

The secret to growing your nails is hydration, hydration, and hydration. To have strong nails, they need to be healthy – and to be healthy, they need to be hydrated. Cuticle oil works by hydrating the cuticle and nail bed, which is why it's such an important step in nail care, whether you're growing your nails or simply want them to look their best.

Nourish Your Nail Beds

If a bumpy, ridged nail bed is completely ruining your manicure, you might need to increase your vitamin B9 intake. This vitamin repairs and multiplies the cells that make up nails, which speeds up growth and promotes overall nail health. 

Upgrade Your Nail Polish Remover

When your manicure shows signs of chipping, it's all too easy to pick up any old bottle of nail polish remover. But those containing high concentrations of acetone is extremely harsh on fragile nails and can dry them instantly.

Eat A Nail-Friendly Diet

For growing nails longer and stronger, it is recommended to have a nutritious rainbow diet including colourful fruit and vegetables, leafy greens, oily fish, nuts, seeds, avocado, eggs, lean meat, a little whole grains and sweet potato.

Use A Keratin Treatment

Found naturally in nails, it's responsible for making them flexible – but don't let that word put you off. It doesn't mean they'll be thin, fragile, or bendy, but fortified and much less likely to chip.
