i can only wonder how did you get so great at this nail art? well...talent is given, but there's got to be something else other than talent. A natural gift? a passion? anyways, i don't want to sound like a crazy stalker or anything like that, i think your art is brilliant...
Np for the question, i don't wear them because i would feel so bad for the nails if i did, if i put polish on them, how will they breathe? For me it is like someone place plastic film over our faces...even though it probably is a silly comparison.
That's the reason our nails turn yellow after a while right? because they don't have any fresh air
Hi! I don't mean any offence, but I saw your comments here, and I thought you may like to know a thing or two about nail polish and nail health. I actually shared similar feelings as you do now when I was younger...I was worried that nail polish would damage my nails, and given how much I used to chew on my nails, I figured they went through enough damage. ^.^ But then I did some research that has changed my perspective.
Nails don't actually breathe. What causes the nails to turn yellow is not applying a clear base coat to protect your nail before the nail polish is applied. The color can seep from the dye of the polish into the nail if a base coat isn't used.
It's been clinically proven that the health of your nails depends on how you take care of your cuticles and nails. The Mayo Clinic actually recommends the use of nail polish to keep your nails from losing moisture. [link] It's nail polish remover that does the damage, not the polish itself.
Aw...you are so sweet, thank you so much, this news is good and bad, i have purchased 30 bottles of nail polish for gifts for my friend on her birthday...maybe she should get 20 now...what she doesn't know can't hurt her right??
Haha, no problem at all! I'm glad I could make you feel better about using nail polish! And I won't tell your friend if you don't!
Ever since I learned all of that about nail polish, I've been in love with it. I do try to avoid using remover more than once a week. Even that seems to try my cuticles out. But Sally Hansen has really good products to moisturize cuticles. Just make sure you get a moisturizer and not a cuticle remover.
