Do you like to do your nails? I mean do you like to care about nails? Basically women are tend to be more careful and touchy about their nails. They really give ample care to nails. They are not like males who do not care about nails. Women are very careful about nails.

They even try to make their nails look good with the help of nail extension, nail art and manicure and pedicure. They spend a lot of money on these things. On the other hand men do not spend on this. For a working woman who likes to do makeup and is into manicure and pedicure spends like 1000 to 5,000 INR per month on nails. If you want to do nail extension then you can hardly spend 800 INR a month but if you are brand freak and go to a salon which is very famous then you have to pay a hefty amount for this things.

The makeup parlor owners say that manicure, pedicures are good for your nail. The nails look beautiful and attractive if you do that every month. They will convince you that it is the best way to keep your nails healthy and up to date. But if you listen to my opinion, I can say that these treatments barely making the nails healthy. They are not interested in making your nail healthy and nourishing, but they just want more and more money. In my opinion if you want to keep your nails beautiful then make it simple and beautiful.

Sometimes these treatments can affect your nails. Always try to check the quality of products that they use on your nails. The product quality can make your nail a winner or a looser.

I remember I had a friend in college whose name was Sunayna. She did a lot of manicure and pedicure. She also had a lot of money by the way. So, she was a daily customer of a local salon. Her nails were praised for their unique shape and unique nail polish. She also did nail extensions a lot.

We often warned her not to do those procedures frequently on her hands but she did not listen to us. After two years when we met her in college reunion ceremony we noticed her nails. And they were not that much pretty that they used to look. They discolored. They were not that much attractive anymore. We asked her about her nails and she told us that she had nail fungus on her nails. We were shocked. She gave all the details from start to end about her nail fungus.

So, I am going to share this with you.

Let’s move on to the mail point which is:
