Nail beauty: Importance
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. This does not just apply to facial beauty, but also to nail beauty. Nails speak a lot about an individual’s well being, whether emotional or physical.
Having interacted with people from different nationalities, I have noticed that many people, myself included like talking using hand gestures .In such a scenario, it goes without mention that one will get a glimpse of your nails. Hence need for one to ensure that have their nails well catered for.
Nail beauty: relevance to doctors
Today I also got to learn that doctors also know of the importance of nails in determining one’s health.
For every lady out there who has ever undergone a surgery, were you ever requested to remove your nail polish? I have heard that this is mandatory for every woman before a surgery is done. Never quite understood why until today
This is especially true for women who are meant to go for a caesarean section. I have always felt for this women, as most pregnant women take time during the last month of their pregnancy to re-do their hair, have a manicure and pedicure done. Reason being, the mother will not have time for herself in the first tow months after birth as all her attention will be directed towards her new born.
Having invested in her beauty before delivery, tell me why then is it necessary for the nurses to force this woman to undo her nail polish should it be necessary for her to undergo a CS?
I got to know that the reason for this is that doctors use the nails to establish the flow of blood in the woman during surgery. Hence need for people being requested to remove their nail polish for the doctors to assess their health status during and immediately after the CS or any surgery for that matter.
Having briefly spoke of the importance of nail beauty, I will take time to briefly share with you some of the simple nail beauty secrets

Use a wooden and not a metallic nail file. This is so because metallic nail files are harsh on the nails and are the reason why some nails chip off frequently
When filling your nails, please ensure that you do the filing in one direction to avoid any breakage.

Avoid use of any acetone based nail remover. Before purchasing any nail polish remover, it is advisable for one to read the ingredients to ascertain that there is no trace of acetone in it.
