Nail Care Advice
Nails Not Growing?
The average persons nails grow approximately 2 mm (1/8 of an inch) per month. The reason why most people’s nails don’t seem to grow is because they break before they see results. Many people bite their nails, rip them off, others tend to shred or peel them. They best way to see results is to start a healthy nail program with me at Nats Nails.

Do False Nails Stop My Nails From Growing Crooked?
If your nails grow in a certain way, they will continue to grow that way. By applying any nail enhancements will only hide your crooked nails.
If you suffer from ridged nails they will always grow that way. To smooth out the ridges I would suggest that you use a white block buffer to gently buff the nail surface. At Nats Nails we have a professional salon product we would apply and then apply Gelish Gel Polish. Click see the page on manicure treatments. Click here for Gelish Gel Polish
Dry Skin And Cuticles?
Moisturize, Rehydrate, Oil, Lotion… any chance you get! Keep a good quality hand cream with you always. Whenever you wash your hands, apply it. Also, use a good quality cuticle oil and gently rub into your cuticles twice a day. For really chapped hands & feet I recommend a nice dip in paraffin wax.
Should Cuticles And Calluses Be Cut?
Never cut your cuticles or cut your calluses. As the cuticle protects the nails from infection, and the calluses give you shock absorbers . If you cut them you risk getting an infection, and they will grow back thicker and harder, and possibly create an infection. The best way to care for your cuticles is to apply a good quality cuticle oil and gently push them back with a orangewood stick. You may carefully trim any hangnails or for best results, schedule a manicure with me at Nats Nails my mobile is : 0758 7143187
What Causes Finger Nail Damage?
The nail can be damaged by nail-biting, scratching the nail folds, bad manicuring , or by hitting your nail with a hammer …… OUCH! Resulting in the nail having ridges, cracked or even broken. If the nail after one year still has the same appearance as a result of the trauma the nail will never have a normal appearance again.
What Is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a hereditary disorder which most commonly affects the skin on the elbows, knees, face, and even the scalp with a rash like appearance. In the finger nails, psoriasis may appear as pits in the nail plate, or as the nail plate separating from the nail bed (onycholysis). Other symptoms include the nail losing its normal luster, appearing discoloured, or grossly thickening.
What Is Paronychia?
Paronychia is an inflammation of the nail folds commonly caused by constant exposure to moisture. Exposure to bacteria or fungus can often cause a secondary infection accompanied by painful swelling of the nail fold. If the infection goes untreated for an extended period of time, the nail plate can become deformed. Paronychia can be treated by draining the infected nail fold, taking oral antibiotics, or using a topical antifungal or antiseptic lotion. If you have paronychia it’s best to avoid prolonged exposure to water (eg. washing dishes), or try wearing gloves.
What do Nails reveal about your health?
Take a look at your fingernails. Are they strong and healthy-looking? Or do you see ridges, or areas of unusual color or shape? The condition of your nails may offer clues to your general health. Illness can cause changes in your nails that your doctor can use to develop a diagnose.
Nail Disorders That May Be Linked To Illnesses
Beau’s lines — Indentations that run across your nail. This can appear when growth at the matrix (nail root) is disturbed by severe illness such as a heart attack, measles, or pneumonia.
Clubbing — Your fingertips widen and become round while the nails curve around your fingertips. Caused by enlargement in connective tissue as compensation for a chronic lack of oxygen. Lung disease is present in 80 percent of people who have clubbed fingers.
Half-and-Half (Lindsay’s nails) — Look for an arc of brownish discoloration. May appear in a small percentage of people who have a kidney disorder.
Onycholysis (ON-i-ko-LY-sis) — The nail separates from the nail bed. Most of the time, this problem is associated with physical injury (trauma), psoriasis, drug reactions, fungal disease or contact dermatitis from using nail hardeners.
