Nails for every girl are a fashion statement and a matter of pride as well. Nails are also a view of the world of your cleanliness and hygiene. Thus, you must keep your nails clean and healthy. Nails have a transparent layer on top which is made up of keratin. If not maintained, nails can be brittle, easily breaking and discoloured. Healthy nails are strong and even coloured while weak nails have patches and signs of yellowing. Healthy nails are also smooth and uniform.
