As we all know that winters are here, which undoubtedly the most awaited season of all, but we all shouldn’t forget that with winters comes the most extensive list of skin problem, as the cold air makes your skin dry, taking away all the moisture from your skin. In case of hands and nails, they are the most exposed parts of your body even in winters because you cannot keep them covered for a very long time.
Most women are not in favor of the professional manicureto take care of their hands and nails. There is a good reason for not letting them do so as; it costs lots of money, and they can’t take as good care of them as you can yourself. Another problem is that there are very few good manicures, most of them will send you home with a shiny polish that would make you think that they did a brilliant job and then in a day or two you will see them ending up with sore hangnails or perhaps the beginning of tiny corns at either end of the nails.
The former would be the result of free use of the scissors around the cuticle, whereas the later would be accounted the fault of the little knife with which the skin lining of the nail is not removed properly. On the other hand most women give the excuse of not getting time to go to a spa for a proper manicure, whereas some could not afford the expenses of it, but now you would not have to spend your money, in fact you would not have to go out for a manicure because there are some exquisite tips that would not only make your hands prettier but will also take few minutes and no money at all.So here are the tips for prettier hands at little expense;
