Long pink nails
Did you know nail health is a sign of your overall health? It’s true.
My nails have always been short because they always break. Take a look at all the nails care tips and home remedies I did. My nails went from being short brittle nails to finally strong, long, and healthy nails. Yay!
My nails grew fast too! If my short brittle nails can grow out, yours can too.
Here’s my 20 Home Remedies for Nail Growth
- Massage your bare nails and cuticles with Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Wear nail polish! This strengthens your nails. A base coat + two coats of color + one top coat
- If wearing nail polish add a drop of Extra Virgin Olive Oil under each nail (this conditions the other bare side of the nail making it stronger)
- Exfoliate your nail bed and cuticles with baking soda/ water paste or use a brown sugar scrub with olive oil. You need to exfoliate the dead skin so the moisturizer/ olive oil can absorb
- Wear rubber/latex gloves when cleaning the house/chores to protect your nails
- When wearing the gloves, apply a generous amount of your favorite lotion or olive oil to your hands and nails. This is an excellent conditioning nail growth remedy. You’ll condition while you clean.
- Never do anything that can risk breaking a nail such as adding a key to a keychain, opening a clasp on necklace, lifting heavy objects – ask for help like a Queen! 😉
- Make sure you use a nail strengthening base coat, even if you’re not going to apply colored polishes
- File your nails in one direction to keep the ends healthy and neat
- If you see your nail polish chipping, make sure you fix it immediately, it leaves the nail vulnerable to breakage
- Moisturize your nails / hands/ cuticles after you wash your hands
- Apply moisturizer as often as needed. Morning, noon, evening, and night
- When removing nail polish, ALWAYS use an acetone-free formula to avoid drying out the nails
- Take a biotin supplement, my fave is called “Hair, Skin, and nails”
- You can add a coat of nail gel top coat and cure under a UV light to make your nails strong as cement
- Remove yellow stain from nail tips using a little diluted hydrogen peroxide, moisturize after!
- If nail fungus is slowing down your nail growth, apply a drop of tea tree oil to each nail and massage
- Keep the tips and edges (part of your nail you nail file) sealed with clear top coat – this keeps the nail strong
- Always use a natural moisturizer, like olive oil
- After moisturizing nails before bed, add vaseline on top to seal in the moisture – wake up to conditioned nails
Long nails are sexy
Long nails are beautiful and sexy. My favorite youtube stars always have long beautiful nails painted in the trendy nails colors. And then I look at my nails and wish they would hurry up and grow. Or at least grow but not break. Nail goals, yes. Now my nails are finally strong and long. I can get more fancy with nail designs now too.
I love seeing my long nails in my selfies. I feel more feminine and yes, elegant. 😉
That glamerous long nail lifestyle
What I was doing wrong, sabotaging my nail growth
Queen it up ladies! Ask you man to keep you lift heavy things, don’t go breaking a nail my dear.
I used to live a lifestyle that could not endure long nails. I’ve turned into such a girly girl. Geez it’s difficult keeping your nails long when you’re not used to long nails. I hope all my nail growth tips and remedies work for you like they did for me.
- I would grab wet clothes from the washer machine, now I use my knuckles lol
- try to lift heavy junk in the shed, now I ask for help
- move furniture, now I ask for help 😉
- place new keys on my key rings, now I ask for help lol 😉
- Opening clasps for wearing necklaces… I still need to find a solution. I broke my thumb nail doing this! 😉
- Changing a tire, now I just call my roadside assistance lol
- Overall I try to be more careful!
It’s been only two weeks, and my nails have grown out faster. I’ve already received my first compliment on my long nails, which is what lead me to writing all my home remedies for nail growth.

This video of JLO is enough reason to make you want to grow your nails out. I could do this all day. Vogue! Vogue!
I prefer my own natural nails rather then getting fake acrylic nails applied. They’re expensive and damage your natural nails. If you remove your acrylic nails, these nail tips will help you heal and grow out your nails after acrylics too. Grow your own nails faster and stronger at home naturally and you’ll never have to go to the nail salon again. Save time and money on your nails.
