Here are 5 tips for growing your nails! If you’re one of those people who think that your nails just don’t grow no matter what…think again! There is actually an exact science, or formula if you will, to getting your nails to grow longer, stronger, and healthier. Just follow these 5 tips and within just a week or two, you’ll start seeing your nails growing longer and staying strong too!

5 Tips for Growing Your Nails

1. Don’t Bite!

I’m sure we all know this…but biting your nails is a big no no. If you want to have beautiful, long nails just keep the biting at bay. Instead, carry a nail file in your bag so that whenever you do have a snag, you can just file away instead of biting!

2. Don’t Overbuff

It’s a smart idea to use a 4-sided nail buffer, but just make sure you don’t use it more than twice a week. Buffing your nails too often can chip away at the nail, making it brittle and weak. Instead, just stick to doing your manicure once a week to keep your nails strong and healthy.

3. Apply Lotion Often

One of the greatest beauty tips I’ve ever gotten was from an old co-worker of mine who told me that in order for my nails to grow long, I have to constantly use lotion on my hands. I thought it was a little weird at first, but it actually worked. Just apply hand lotion as often as you can, and start seeing your nails grow stronger and longer.

4. File Your Nails

Another great trick is to gently file your nails once a day. Filing your nails keeps them nice and leveled, and it also prevents breakage and snags. That, combined with the above 3 tips is a sure way to grow your nails.

5. Use a Strengthening Polish

Sally Hansen makes some of the bestĀ strengtheningĀ top coats, so pick one up and use it every time you do your nails. Even if you’re not applying a polish, you can still just use it as a strengthener/clear polish. To maximize the benefits and ensure your polish stays on longer without chipping, apply the top coat every other day.
