Nails are easy to grow out. For a healthy individual, it should take no more than two to three weeks to grow long nails. But it is a challenge to keep them from tearing, chipping and snagging once they are long. Here are some care tips to grow long natural nails perfect for art canvases.

Eat to be healthy

Eating healthy is the foundation of great looking nails and hair. It is better to eat a balanced diet than to eat unhealthy and compensate with supplements. Nails reflect our overall health, which is why a doctor looks at the colour of your nails during a check up. Eat food rich in Omega-3 fatty acids like fish and nuts to improve keratin.

Choose a better file

Some nail care tools do more harm than good such as wood cardboard nail files. Cardboard files are cheap and disposable but if you file your nails regularly, try using a glass file instead. Glass files have an abrasive surface that smoothes edges without damaging the nail plate.

Use wood cuticle pushers

Avoid metal cuticle pushers that scrape and mark the surface of the nail. Instead, use disposable birch wood cuticle pushers. Wood pushers are less likely to scrape the nail surface and are more sanitary because they are disposable. When having your nails done, request that the manicurist not use a metal pusher or provide your own wood cuticle pushers.
