If your nails are chipping and breaking, it's probably a sign of poor nail health. Weak nails often tend to break easily and peel off. This is why it is essential to take care of them and nail care is a lot more than just getting a manicure or a pedicure. Your nails can be a big indicator of your health condition and problems. All the tiny negligible things that we ignore about our nails say a lot about our health. If they are chipping off and have become very rough and weak, that means you've probably given up on ever having beautiful long nails. 

However, it doesn't have to be like that! Not taking care of them is the main reason behind the bad nail condition. This is why we need to indulge in some basic nail care routine in order to ensure that they grow stronger and smoother. 

Here are some home remedies for achieving beautiful nails

1. Lack of moisture and hydration can cause brittle nails and the right hydrating trick can help keep them moisturized. Apply some vitamin E oil on your nails and massage them for a minute and leave it overnight.

2. Mix half a spoon of vitamin E oil or olive oil with a few drops of tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is known to have antiseptic properties and keeps your nail clean and also prevents discolouration. Massage this mixture on your nails for a few minutes and then let it stay for up to 40 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

3. Make a nail soak with equal parts of argan oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Soak your nails in this mix for up to 20 minutes.

4. Mix half a cup of honey with one egg and 4 tablespoons of castor oil or olive oil with one teaspoon of sea salt. Mix it well and make a smooth paste. Now rub some of this mixture on your nails and leave it overnight for the best results.

5. Take some garlic and grind it. Ensure that you make a smooth paste. Apply a thick layer of this paste on your nails and let it dry overnight. Garlic is known to strengthen your nails.
