5 BAD HABITS TO BREAK

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - BEAUTY -

1BITING

Be­sides in­gest­ing all the gross stuff un­der your nails, you’ll leave jagged edges.

2HARSH CLEANS­ING

Go­ing to town un­der the tip can cause sep­a­ra­tion of the nail from the bed.

3CUTTING CUTICLES

The pro­tec­tive seal keeps out bac­te­ria. Gen­tly push them back af­ter a shower.

4PEELING OFF GELS

Re­mov­ing the pro­tec­tive layer weak­ens the sur­face. Opt for a pro ace­tone soak.

5USING NAILS AS TOOLS

Sure, they can take out sta­ples or tear open pack­ages in a pinch – but risk­ing a (painful) rip isn’t worth it!
