Do you know how your long nails can be broken? Long nails tend to break very easily. But growing them long isn’t easy, in fact, it’s one of the most time-consuming tasks. I know breaking nails when they are blooming is unfair. I have experienced similar incidents. It’s excruciating.
It’s the worst feeling seeing that all of my effort of three to four months goes in vain in a fraction of a second. In this post, I’ll give you some tips, and by following them, you can at least increase the life of your long nails to some extent.
Here’s How Your Long Nails Can Be Broken
Mostly long nails can be broken while doing daily chores. Therefore, pay a little extra care to your long nails while doing your daily chores. I know you are careful with your long nails. But still, you end up breaking them somehow!
Here I have listed some typical daily activities that, if you perform without being careful, you may put your long nails in a risky situation where they can be broken; we need to do such activities differently. Let’s look at them.
1. Zipping-Unzipping Your Jeans
Every time you zip your jeans, you must carefully hold the zip so that the tips of your long nails do not touch the metallic part of your zip. The metallic teeth of your zip may crack the tips of your long nails if you accidentally run your nails harshly touching the zip.
2. Opening Up a Can
Don’t forget to open up the can with a can opener. Most people open up the can with their fingers. But you have long nails; you shouldn’t even try it out. If you don’t have a can opener, you better ask for help from your friends but opening a can with long nails is a big NO!
3. Opening Up a Door or a Window
Many of us had broken our long nails while opening doors or windows. So, it would be best if you made a safe posture of your fingers before opening a door or a window so that your nails don’t get any force on them accidentally.
Pro Tip: You can here use your palm or make a fist 👊 and use your knuckles to push the door or the window.
4. Removing ATM Cards From ATM Slot
Removing ATM cards with long nails can be a big, bitter task as there’s a high risk of breaking your nails. I use an ATM card grabber tool to take my cards out of the ATM. I recommend you do the same here.
If you break any of your nails, don’t worry, you can still repair that nail instead of cutting all of your nails. If you don’t know how to repair your broken nails, you can get it done by a nail salon.
Now that you know how your long nails can be broken, ensure you care for them properly and enjoy their presence.
