Pretty hands and the elusive perfect 10: We all want it. We all know it's out there.
Getting The Perfect 10
But most of us never quite nail it.
"It," of course, is the elegant, finished look of hands and nails that reach an aesthetically satisfying conclusion in the form of strong, shapely, well-groomed nails and soft hands.
No less than a glowing, unblemished complexion or firm, well-toned muscles, pretty hands and beutiful nails not only improve a woman's overall appearance.
They also testify to the world that their owner cares enough about herself to attend to every detail.
Right down to the tips of her fingers and toes. So have them we must.
But how? There are plenty of normal, everyday women with absolutely gorgeous nails and very pretty hands who could not give you the name or phone number of a nail salon if their life depended on it.
These women don't possess any secret wisdom or special training, either.
They simply know how to care for and beautify their nails and hands properly.
They may be using the very same implements and nail-care products that are probably stowed away in your medicine cabinet or cosmetics bag right now.
Read on—and find out how you, too, can achieve digital perfection and pretty hands.
Nails, at first glance, look simple enough. If you did not know better, you might assume they were similar to bones or cartilage, which, like nails, are relatively hard and tough.
Nails are actually an extension of the skin. Like the softer skin that covers the face and body.
The primary function of your fingernails and toenails, at least biologically, is to provide protection to the tips of the fingers and toes.
A purpose for which they are remarkably well suited. Additionally, nails refine your sense of touch.
They allow you to pick up small objects like paperclips and safety pins.
They improve your ability to perform precise tasks such as threading a needle, sliding a dollar bill into a vending machine or scratching the winning number off your lottery ticket.
