The most important thing to remember before painting your toenails is to select a design prior to starting the painting work. If you are going to draw something, make sure to go for something simple. Some simple, cute design ideas are palm trees, hearts, or flowers. It is a good idea to practice the designs on a piece of paper before trying them out on your toenails, so that you will be able to do a better job. If you choose to make a flower design, you can make the center dot of the flower with one color and the petals of the flower with a different color, so that it will look more colorful. Apart from glittering stones, glittering paints are also available in the market and you can use these paints for your toenails as well. Some nail polishes even come with star glitter, which gives your toenails a really glamorous look. Try to use an even amount of glitter on each nail. Before you start painting your toenails, be sure to clean your nails with soap and water, and only start painting once your nails are totally dry. If there is any nail polish left over from your last application, make sure your remove it before you start on your new application. Also be sure to add a good basecoat to your toenails, and once they are fully dry, then you can proceed to add a coat of nail polish. Be sure to use name brand professional nail products when painting your toenails for best results. If you opt for going to beauty parlor for painting your nails, ask for a catalog of different designs they have to offer so that you can select a style that suits your taste and preference. If you decide painting toenails at home is a better option, all you need is a little practice and you're set! Obviously, this is the route I recommend taking.

#3 How-To Create Great Nail-Polish Looks 4 Trendy Updates For Your Nails Love nail polish and creating hot nail looks, but aren't quite sure how to update your style from basic solids? Painting your nails in show-stopping colours is a great way to show-off your dynamic personality. Here are some great tips on how to get the nail looks you want.

Stand-out Add a pop of colour by painting your nails in neo-brights... on separate hands 5


www.getradiantskin.com 1. 2. 3. 4.

Prep your nails by filing them into short, oval shapes. Apply a long-lasting base coat to keep colour longer. Choose two bold colours that you love, to wear on each hand. Then apply two coats of each polish before finishing off your look with a high-shine top coat.

You should end up with each hand being a different, fun colour. You'll definitely get noticed with this look.

Diva Try a new, hot update on the classic French mani 1. File nails into a rounded shape to make this look more modern. 2. Apply two coats of a glossy red shade (choose whatever red you want - from deep and dark crimsons to cherry reds) and let it dry. 3. Using a French manicure guide sticker, outline the tip of the nail and apply colour carefully. Trendy metallics, like gold and silver, at the tip are a a great update to the classic white French manicure. Make sure the tip completely covers the red base colour - if not, simply apply a second coat to your French tip. Also, make sure that your colour is completely dry before peeling off the guide sticker, and even then - do it slowly.

Modernist Be daring and try a half-moon mani 1. Apply the first shade to the entire nail and let it dry completely. 2. Make use of those French manicure guide stickers and create a rounded, half-moon at the base of the nail. 3. Apply two coats of the second shade from the guide sticker to the tip of the nail. Once polish is dry, carefully peel off the guides. Student? Paper-hole reinforcements can double as a great half-moon sticker guide! Some great colour combinations for this look are trendy grey nails and black half-moons, or light brown nails with a soft peach half-moon. Or experiment and make your own colour combinations!

Eclectic 1. Paint an ombre nail manicure to show off your artistic side 1. Apply the first colour to the entire nail - this will be the shade that shows at the base of your nail. 2. Once that polish is dry, then apply your second shade, starting at the tip of your nail with soft, feathery strokes to recreate that great gradient effect. 3. While the second colour is still wet, apply a clear top coat to blend the colours together even better. For a subdued take on this look, pick shades that compliment each other. Wanna get wild with your nails? Try bright, shades that obviously contrast with each other. 6


www.getradiantskin.com Great colour combinations are electric yellow and brown, or royal blue and silvery-white. Whatever your nail personality, don't be afraid to have fun with your nails. Choose polish shades that truly describe you and then - go get 'em! Everyone will be wowed with your awesome nail creations and you'll definitely stand out.

#4 Great Nails Tips on how to get healthy and long nails 1. The first and most important tip is drink LOTS AND LOTS of water. Everyone knows how important water is to the body, the same goes for your nails. You should at least be drinking 8 glasses of water each day. It will keep your nails hydrated and prevent dryness and breaking. 2. Cut and trim your nails frequently. Even if you are trying to grow out your nails, this rule holds truth. You can file them instead of using nail clippers. Just remember to file them in one direction. Filing them back and forth will cause the nail to become weak and inevitably damage them. 3. Keep nails and cuticles moisturized with cuticle oil. Like drinking water, this prevents dryness. Where water will help the nails grow internally, cuticle oil will have a more direct effect externally. I have found that cremes do not work as well as oils. Oils get absorbed better into my cuticles and it softens them considerably. I use Sally Hansen Vitamin E Cuticle Oil. I apply it twice a day. Once in the morning and then again before I go to bed. It's good to apply on the cuticles put then spend a few minutes massaging it into your whole nail. The massage will stimulate blood flow and help them grow stronger. 4. Keep your nails the same length and shape them semi-square to oval. Too square will be more prone to breakage. Having them a little rounded at the edges will cause less nicks and splits. 5. Use a top coat and base coat. A base coat serves many purposes. Using a base coat will not only prevent your nails from turning yellow when using nail polish but it will also help your manicure last longer. There are a wide variety of base coats in the market but I like to use one that also provides some strength to my nails. I have discovered a few years ago a product called Nail Magic. It is a nail hardener that strengthens your nails while at the same time promoting growth. It has worked many times for me. After I cut my nails the same length, I would apply Nail Magic as a base coat and proceed with my usual polish. I use it differently from what the instructions state but it works nonetheless. I apply Nail Magic about once a week but I believe the instructions state to apply it about 3x a week. I recommend to follow instructions in the beginning of your nail regime but once you have had successful results you can switch to once a week. A top coat is essential because it works as a sealer. After you apply your desired nail polish, a top coat will help your nail shine and your polish stay on longer without chipping. A manicure usually lasts 5-7 days but can last longer if you brush on a top coat every 1-2 days. I also find it helpful to apply the top coat to the ends/tips of your nails and at the edges. It ensures extra protection. 6. Be aware of your nails. Don't use your nails as tool such as trying to remove something from your teeth or using them to open soft drinks. This will apply pressure to your nail which is something you are trying to avoid. 7. Wear vinyl gloves when doing household chores. Harsh chemicals that are frequently found in house cleaners will lead to splitting and peeling. These solvents could strip your hand and nails of 7


www.getradiantskin.com natural oils if gloves are not worn. Also, try to avoid too much exposure to water for long periods of time. This will soften the nail and make it very easy to bend. Immediately after cleaning, try to lotion hands to regain moisture. 8. Applying garlic to your nail will greatly improve its strength. You can do it in numerous ways. One way is to pierce the clove with your nail and leave it inside for a couple of minutes, about 15 minutes. Afterwards you can wash. You can do this up to a few times a week. This is a quick way of giving your nail the garlic treatment. Another way is to strip bits of garlic and combine it inside a clear nail polish bottle. Let the mixture sit for about 5 days and you have your own nail hardener. The smell wears off after a while and you can't really smell it. Apply your home-made hardener up to twice a day. 9. Avoid using 100% (pure) acetone nail polish remover. Your nails will be dehydrated and cause them to be brittle. There are non acetone based nail polish removers that can be used as a substitute. Although these are not as strong and can make it more difficult to remove some designs and decorations (like rhinestones), it is beneficial because of the minimal damage it inflicts. 10. Don't pick or cut your cuticles, doing so will leave them at risk of bacteria entering the nail bed if the skin is cut. You can push back your cuticles gently if need be. Use a cuticle pusher at a 45 degree angle to achieve this. Following these simple steps can help you have healthy and long nails in a few weeks. I am a mom and with a toddler running around, I still manage to have decently long nails that I am proud of. Although they occasionally break from time to time because of the chaos that surrounds me (I myself am guilty of not following all rules), I try to pamper myself at least once a week and give myself a manicure. Everyone deserves a little R&R some time, why not use that time so that you can feel good about yourself. You nails are just another part of your body that is important to take care of and maintain.

#5 Nail Care Essentials For Men A Question of Cuticles My last article, a basic guide to nail polish for men got a good reaction, but I realized shortly after publishing it that I had somewhat jumped the gun. If you're new to nail care and nail polish, then odds are, your fingernails simply aren't ready for nail polish yet. If it has been several years since you did anything but wash your hands with soap and water and occasionally nibble at a hangnail, odds are that your fingernails are ill shaped for nail polish, jagged around the edges and have cuticles raging across them like Mongolian hordes across China. What are cuticles? You may never have heard of cuticles before, but they are the sliver thin pieces of skin which can creep up to cover the bottom of your fingernail. Men (and women) who have not attended to their nails in some time will probably end up with a few unwanted millimeters of cuticle which will impede further manicuring. Cuticles can be rough and even jagged, and they certainly don't look good if you just try to paint over them with nail polish. No, cuticles must be tended to before further manicuring can take place. Fortunately, they are not too hard to deal with if you are willing to put a little time into rehabilitating them. 8


www.getradiantskin.com You will need:   

•Cuticle Cream •Manicure Set •Cuticle Sticks

If your cuticles are not too long, then simply gently massage them daily after you have a bath or a shower (when they will be the softest) with oil, or preferably, cuticle cream. You can then use a cuticle stick to push the cuticles back, making your nails look longer and prettier. If your cuticles have run amok, you might want to try using cuticle remover. Cuticle remover is a product which when applied to the cuticles softens them and readies them for removal. Usually your cuticles will be stuck down hard to your nail, which is the point, as they were designed by nature to seal your nail bed against bacteria, fungi and other nasties. Cuticle remover will soften the excess cuticle and allow you to use cuticle clippers, or a cuticle stick to gently clip the excess cuticle tissue away. This can be something of a painstaking process, but it is essential if you want nice nails. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, it's not a bad idea to go along to a manicurist and get them to do it the first time. They can give you further hints and tips which will help your grow your nails to the point where they will look good when polished and may be able to recommend products to help you on your way.

6# Tips for French Manicures French nail design is a hard skill to master. Now there are such aids as stickers to help guide the white polish line and press on nails to achieve the same look without ever opening the nail polish. But if you are one who likes to do things free handed, then here are a few tips on how to create a perfect french manicure. First you will want to file the edge of your nails into a smooth and even edge. Remember to leave enough length to paint. Once that’s done, apply the base coat. This is an important step. The base coat smoothes out the top of the nail, giving a nice and even surface to paint on. Let the base coat dry. Next it’s time to open up the white nail polish. The trick is to only use a small amount of polish at a time. If you use to much, the paint will look clumpy and take forever to dry leaving you more likely to ruin your work later. A thin line also makes it easy to touch up any mistakes with a Q-tip. So if you do happen mess up a little, you wont have to re-start.

Gently brush each side of the brush against the side of the nail polish jar until there is very little white left on the brush. Very softly tap the edge of your nail using your natural tip as the guide line. Going too far below the tip will make the manicure look unnatural, so be careful to keep the line even with the natural growth of your nail. One major question in doing your own French Manicure is switching over from the strong hand to the weak hand. This is the part that most people fear, but there is a trick to this as well. When 9


www.getradiantskin.com switching from the strong hand to the weak hand, keep the weak hand still and continue to let the strong hand do all the work. This is done by letting your weak hand hold the brush still and in the position to paint. Take your strong hand and let your fingers place themselves under the brush at the desired length and then easily pull away. This creates the same effect without relying on your weak hand to keep a steady line. Now give your nails a chance to dry and paint on a second coat using a thin layer of white paint just as before. This will give thickness and definition to the line. After that has dried you can paint on the top coat and you’re French Manicure is finished. Thank you for reading!

#7 Nail Fungus Treatment That Actually Works - Simple Guide to Treating Fungus Infected Nails Do you have fungus hibernating under your nails? Are you too embarrassed to walk around bare feet? This article aims to provide you with simple tips on how to eliminate nail fungus. If you unfortunately suffer from a toenail infection, you already know how hard it is to get rid of. Fungus under the nails thrives because of the damp, moist environment. Many so called treatments may temporarily relieve any pain you may be experiencing, but not the root cause of the fungus. The following are certain remedies you can try at home and see whether there are any improvements in your condition. They may or may not work, depending on the severity of the fungal infection.

Reduce Nail Size Initially, try cutting down your nails as much as you can, without injuring yourself. By opening up parts of your skin under the nails, the fungus infection may become exposed and ready for further treatment.

Vinegar Foot Baths Soak your feet in a container filled with vinegar. As long as the vinegar is able to cover the feet, that's fine. Do this once every day for up to 30 minutes. As previously mentioned, the vinegar may work on your condition, depending on whether your nail fungus strands are immune to it or not.

Listerine Not Just For Mouth Wash? There have been reports that Listerine has worked in some cases of fungal infections. Soaking your feet in Listerine may help reduce or eliminate minor fungal infections. I would not say that Listerine or vinegar are the best nail fungus treatments out there, far from it, it just all depends on your individual case.
