My favorite tip for maintaining healthy nails is using a good base & top coat. Also, a glass or crystal file is a necessity for anyone doing their nails at home.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Your cuticles will never look ragged and your nails will never look dry! Also, always wear gloves when cleaning!

I make a home-made nail and cuticle oil that helps them to be stronger and they grow faster if I use it every night before I go to bed. Mix in a storage bottle 20 drops of laventer essential oil, 10 drops of lemon essential oil, 1 tbsp of almond oil, and 1 tbsp of jojoba oil. I love it.

Gorgeous colors! I love that they are making a strong effort to creat a nice product that is more than just the nailpolish standard of “clean”.

for me to have healthy nails, I have to keep them short, keep using hand and cuticle cream regularly, and eat healthy foods with lots of protein, because my nails are prone to bending.

I bought myself a glass nail file about a month ago. It may be too soon to say it’s helping, but I feel like I’ve been able to maintain the shape of my nails better with it. Until I started using it, they were a mix of square and oval. Now they all stay the same basic shape, even if I have to re-file a little.

I find that my nails are most healthy when I intake vitamins either through food or through supplements. Also integral to maintaining healthy nails is regularly trimming and buffing my nails to prevent splits or breaks.

I just make sure to use plenty of oil and hand cream.

Because of my Hashimoto’s my nails don’t grow well. They are uber thin, brittle and weak. I wear falsies which I know are not at all good for the nails but that is the only way I can have decent nails.

My toe nails grow like wildfire. LOL! I make sure to also use oil and creams on my feet and nails. My most fav products are Seche Vite’s dry fast top coat

As I was saying my fav products are Seche Vite’s dry fast top coat, any Ahava cream (hand, foot & body) and lastly Heal Tastic … Yes, the made for Tele stuff. It honestly does work and is my go to dry foot balm. BTW, do NOT use it on your hands. It aggravated my eczema something horrible πŸ™

Keeping them painted! I find them far less likely to chip or break if I have a base coat + 2 coats of polish + 2 coats of top coat. Only filing nails in one direction as opposed to a “sawing” motion has really helped as well!

The way I maintain my nails is constant hydration. I live in Barrow, AK. Way up above the arctic circle, so it’s always dry here. And if I don’t keep my nails hydrated they just constantly crack on me.

always use a top coat when using nail polish. Always have a nail filer (in purse, office, etc.) because you never know when you’ll break/chip a nail and it helps to fix it with a nail file

Glass nail files are sooo essential to making sure my nails don’t peel or flake! also removing nail polish when it starts to chip so I’m not tempted to peel the polish off and damage my nails

I love Color Club polishes. They deserve more shine.

It’s important to not only moisturizer your cuticles, but your nails as well. Breakage is often due to dryness. I’m constantly moisturizing my hands, nails, and cuticles especially in these winter months.

My favorite tip is to file away or fix any breaks or tears as soon as possible. I’m a reformed nail biter, and I’ve found that if I don’t take care of issues, I’ll either pick at them or bite my nails just to get rid of it.

My tips for healthy nails
For me, my nails behave pretty well as long as I file them on a regular basis and put some form of polish on them to protect them. It probably also doesn’t hurt to take a multi-vitamin.

I have this hand/nail cream called Hard as Hooves(or something… don’t remember. Sorry.) That I use often, I have a nail strengthener I use a couple times a week. I keep a crystal nail file in my purse and on my nightstand to use whenever my nails get rough or feel like they are going to crack. I also take biotin. I recently got fake nails and hated them, now my natural nails are trashed. πŸ™

I ALWAYS keep lotion or cuticle cream by the bedside. I’m more likely to spend time rubbing it in right before I go to bed; it’s soothing and keeps my cuticles from getting dry!

My most important tip for keeping your nails nice and healthy is to use the correct nail buffer followed by a super awesome base coat.

I suggest a nail buffer sold at Sally’s Beauty supply: All Season Fine Grit Yellow Finishing Block. Its very fine so it does not over buff your nails. You should buff your nails once a week or once every two weeks; NOT every time you paint your nails.
Then, I suggest Sally Hansen’s nail strengthener, which is the purple bottle in their Continuous Treatment line πŸ™‚ This strengthener will help your nails from chipping and breaking, and will promote growth.

And, OF COURSE, Lemony Flutter for some extra moister! πŸ˜‰

Favorite tip for maintaining healthy nails is….DON’T bite them! I used to bite my nails when I was younger and now that I’m paining them and stopped biting them, my nails have never looked better!

I swear by OPI nail envy. I prefer the matte version, so that when I don’t have on other polish, I can forget it’s there (no temptation to pick at it). That and don’t use your fingernails as tools!!

My favourite tip for maintaining healthy nails is also using a good base and top coat and also to wear nail varnish for one and a half days, then take it off with a good nail polish remover.

My main tips for having healthy nails and hands are:
Using rubber gloves for any heavy or drying work, wearing gloves when out in cold weather, always using sunscreen on hands if outdoors (melanoma survivor, here!), never using nails as “tools”, constant re-application of hand cream!

i have very bad nails, the top layer of my nails just peels and i’ve discovered taking one a day teen advantage has really helped my nails to be stronger and healhier.

I drink LOADS AND LOADS AND LOADS of water – at least 7 glasses a day. It is actually a lot easier than I thought it would be since I carry a water bottle with me everywhere so whenever I get thirsty it’s the first thing I reach for (instead of soda/juice/coffee like I used to). πŸ™‚ I’m vegetarian so I also make sure to eat a lot of lentils/legumes, nuts, etc to get a good amount of protein. My nails used to break/chip sooo easily before but ever since I started eating better & drinking more water – it’s not just my nails that are long & healthy, but also my skin is more clear than it’s ever been

It’s important to always file your nails. Not just the tips, but the sides too. Oh, & always put hand lotion on. If you don’t have hand lotion, just use regular lotion. It’s so important to keep your hands & nails hydrated.

I also always have some kind of nail strengthener on if I’m not wearing any polish at all. The strengthener acts as a barrier against water. Water weakens nails, so having a strengthener or even just some clear polish on will protect your nails and keep them strong.

For my nails protection, I use gloves when ever possible, moisturize my cuticles with Burts Bee lemon cuticle butter, rub oil unto nails and cuticle, soak them, massage the hand and nail area and moisturize..

To maintain my healthy nails, I use cuticle cream nightly. I polish my nails a few times a week and always use a base coat. I buff and file as needed.

Do not bite your nails…if you break the habit you might find out your nails actually grow like mine…did it on a bet, and found out I had very strong nails that grow !

Every week after my manicure, I buff my nails with buffing cream and a chamois buffer. I think that the buffing revs up the circulation to my nails and helps them to be strong and healthy.

Hmmm…I have really nice nails naturally and I get asked about them a lot. (Not trying to be an ego-maniac, but it’s true.) I’d like to give a tip about using a good cuticle cream or a special nail polish, but really my tip is to just have good genes!

My favourite tip for maintaining healthy nails is to ALWAYS use a base coat. It might seem like a trivial part of the nail care routine but, once youve used a bright yellow nail polish and found out that it is NEVER going to come off (or at least not for a few weeks), you realise the true importance of the base coat!

I wear rubber gloves when I do my dishes. Then a good cuticle oil is a must, and I am really loving my California Mango Balm for those days my skin is really dry.

My tip for healthy nails: moisturize your cuticles, and eat your vitamins! Can’t have healthy nails if you’re not eating right πŸ™‚

When growing my nails out, I keep them naked save for a good strengthening base- and several layers. My nails break a lot, so I really rely on Orly’s broken nail kit!

i never scratch nail polish off and if my nails look especially dry after removing polish, i lotion them and let them “breathe” a bit…not sure if that helps but it’s what i do! haha hope i win πŸ™‚ thanks for doing this giveaway!

In order to keep my nails healthy, I don’t always put nail polish on. When I DO use nail polish, I make sure to use a base coat. Whenever I don’t have nail polish on, I regularly clean them using a cotton swab and nail polish remover!

For healthy nails I slather on a mixture of extra virgin coconut oil with my Eucerin hand cream. It’s very moisturizing for my hands and my nails look great despite my constant changing and removing polish every couple of days.

My fave tips for maintaining nails is to use a good base and top coat and also moisturizing my nails and my cuticles to keep stronger nails.

To maintain healthy nails, I keep mine no longer than the end of my fingertip to minimize the chance that I’ll catch them on something and break them off. I also use a glass file, minimize prolonged exposure to water (especially if they’re bare), take biotin supplements, and drink a lot of water. Also, I think using high quality (doesn’t necessarily mean expensive), B3F polishes and base/top coats helps a lot.

My favorite tip for healthy nails is to moisturize your cuticles. And I find the polish chips less quickly if I use a slightly abrasive file to just buff the nails before painting them. Thanks for the contest!

My favorite tip for having healthy nails its to NOT bite them.. and always wear gloves when it comes to washing dishes and cleaning your restrooms.. thank you for the Giveaway!.. :0)

To maintain healthy nails I use a Nail Therapy, Cuticle Oil, and of course a base and top coat when polishing, all from a great little brand I love :). I also swear by NOT cutting or removing cuticles. This prevents bad bacterias from getting under your nail and into the creases that can cause infections and inflammations. If you have unruly cuticles I suggest using a cuticle oil and an orange-wood or cuticle suppressing stick to simply push the cuticle further into the creases of your nail πŸ˜€

My tip for good finger tips is once every two week at home manicure
And I always wear a good nail strengthiner and push back my cuticals not cut them

For keeping my nails healthy, I swear by a variety of “lengthener/strengtheners”. My favorite is Butter London’s Horse Power Nail Fertilizer. I swear in a week it made a difference, just applying it under a base coat and then polishing as normal. I could see nail growth AND my nails were getting quite strong.

I also make sure I have clippers and a crystal file everywhere I go so I’m not tempted to fuss at a chip in my nail. And I MUST have at least a clear coat on. I was thrilled when they told me I could have polish on during my surgery! Stress is the worst thing that can happen to my nails LOL.

Thanks for the giveaway :)))

Another comment because I didn’t see we had to write down the nail tip. Mine is using Berty’s cuticle cream. I use to hate my nails until it became part of my routine.

I am also a believer that nails shouldn’t be too long. Mine stay pretty short

Im such a polish addict! just snagged my first Zoya shades with one of their promo codes, looks like I’m gonna need a Helmer to sort them all soon! I’d love to try Color Club, Ive never seen them in stores.
thanks so much for all your blogging, this site is a great resource when trying to spend wisely on all the pretty sparklies!

haha, I missed the instructions! my nails get the star treatment, a day (or just overnight when I’m impatient) to rest between coats, I sleep in gloves with lotion and cuticle cream. moisturizer and a good strengthening base coat are essential!

Moisturize! I like to use my Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream or just regular lotion. It keeps my hands and cuticles moisturized and makes my hands looks fresh

To keep my nail polish lasting longer I’ve learned to paint the tip and a bit of the underside of my nail with the polish and a top coat. It’s called “wrapping your tips” and works wonders!

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!! πŸ™‚

My tip for healthy nails is to skip the soaking step in your manicure, if there is one. The part where you soak your fingers in warm water causes the nail to absorb water and expand or become weak. Then they get filed and it increases the damage. File only in one direction, it really makes a difference.

keeping hands moisturized i guess. it’s hard since i’m always doing things with my hands. luckily my nails grow rapidly and i’m not a biter so i always have long nails.

My favorite tip for keeping healthy nails is keeping them moisturized. Another tip is keeping them polished. Thanks for another great giveaway!

My favorite tip for maintaining healthy nails has to be the Nailtiques Protein 2. I got my first bottle from (thanks Christine for telling us about Beautyfix.)But this stuff really helps to prevent peeling.

I always make sure to put a base coat on before applying my nail polish because otherwise when I come to remove it, my nails get weaker. I also use a cuticle oil pen around each of my nails. πŸ™‚

Use branded base coat and top coat for lost lasting nail polish rather than choosing cheap ones that would only damage your nails. also drink Biotin for healthy nails!

got too excited… my tip would be to keep them moisturized, and to not buff constantly since that makes nails brittle (atleast for me it does!)

I try to always use a base coat when painting my nails and when it comes to my cuticles I try to keep them as moisturized as i can with hand and nail lotions and a good cuticle oil! I often cut and file my nails to keep them looking even and clean!

I have noticed a big improvement in my nails overall since I started using a glass file instead of my old diamond file. There has to be a connection.

My tips for maintaining healthy nails starts with taking care of my cuticles. I use cuticle and hand cream every night before bed and it seems to work for me

I like to always buff my nails to an even smoothness before I apply any polish. I find that this method is great for people whose nails are not as smooth or tends to grow with little ridges on them, and it also makes the nail polish application process much smoother and even.

tip for healthy nails is hydration both internally and externally. drink lots of water and moisturize to keep them strong. almond oil is awesome for cuticles. I also take multivitamins.
