Brittle nails crack, tear, and rip at the slightest provocation. While a manicure makes your nails look nice, it can quickly spoil if your nails are not strong enough to withstand daily activities like working at the computer and washing the dishes.
What can you do if you have brittle nails that chip and tear? The good news is, Bellezza spa offers some of the best nail strengthener treatments. Learn about our nail strengthening treatments that improve nail health and prevent chipping.
Treat Yourself to a Nail Strengthening Spa Treatment
When you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your nails, a day spa treatment can help you relax and restore confidence in your appearance. We offer two nourishing nail treatments that can help you make over your weak nails into strong, supple nails that resist tears. At Bellezza Spa we offer:
- Paraffin Hand Treatments – Our paraffin hand treatments begin with an individualized nail consultation. Our nail technicians will examine the shape, strength, and appearance of your nails to tailor the treatment to improving your nail health. Relax while your hands are wrapped in ultra-moisturizing paraffin, which will soften and rehydrate your hands and nails. Since brittle nails need moisture, this treatment will help. Sealing in the moisture with a nail strengthening manicure will leave your nails looking much better.
- Shellac Manicure – A shellac manicure covers your natural nails with a hardy gel or shellac that can last for up to one month without chipping. Let us apply shellac to your nails if you anticipate nail chipping due to dehydration, dry weather, or anything else. When we cover healthy nails with a shellac manicure, we can prevent nails from becoming brittle while delivering lasting beautiful color.
What are the Best Nail Strengthener Products?
Nail strengthening products can help you maintain nail health in between manicures. We recommend nail hardeners and nail strengtheners, depending on your unique needs. We are partial to the Nail Hydrator Formula X, available at Sephora.
- Nail hydrators – If your nails peel easily and feel dry, a nail hydrator will keep them soft and supple, preventing nail tears. Nail hydrators contain beeswax, glycerin, mineral oil, and other moisturizing ingredients that will keep your nails in great shape. You will need to reapply often, but you will see results!
- Nail hardeners – If your nails tear, occasionally using nail hardeners will help by strengthening the proteins in your nails so they actually become less prone to breaking. Our favorite nail hardeners include Essie Grow Stronger, OPI Natural Nail Strengthener, and Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Hardener.
One caution, though: Relying on these products all the time can make your nails even more brittle. We recommend using these as a temporary measure instead of a regular solution.
If you have brittle nails, there are plenty of solutions to improve your nail health and your confidence. For help with your nail needs, please call Bellezza Spa. We look forward to serving you!
