A Guide to Strengthening Weak Nails

What are some everyday things we do that can affect nail health?

Your nails are delicate so it’s important to treat them that way. From tapping away at our keyboards during those long workdays to scrubbing dishes after dinner, the seemingly mundane tasks we undertake can leave their mark on our nails. Depending on our field of work, the impact can be more pronounced – those in more labor-intensive jobs might find their nails exposed to harsher conditions. Even the simple act of changing bed sheets or indulging in long, hot showers can take a toll on our nails, leaving them prone to breakage. And let’s not forget the allure of excessive cuticle removal, a habit that, when overindulged, can weaken our nails and leave them vulnerable. It’s clear that our daily routines can significantly influence the health of our nails, making nail care an important piece of self care routines. 


What are signs of weak nails?

Signs of weak nails can manifest in nail flexibility, when nails tend to bend rather than maintain their natural rigidity. If your nails easily bend or chip, then it’s a clear signal that they lack the strength they need. Dryness is another red flag, as it can lead to brittle nails that are prone to breakage. The appearance of white spots can be another telltale sign that your nails need some extra nourishment. Ridges on the nail surface are not only unsightly but can also point to underlying weakness. In sum, these signs of weak nails might seem minor, but they serve as clear indicators that our nails need a little extra care. 


Which sundays studio products can help with improving and maintaining healthy nails?

The first step to improving and maintaining healthy nails is choosing a good base coat. This is the product that comes into contact with your nails the most. Consider using sundays studio’s hydrating base coat, B.01, to improve your nail health. If your nails are too flexible, then we recommend using sundays studio’s nail strengthening base coat, B.03. It is enriched with Vitamin E, Argan Oil, & Amino Acid to act as a nail repair serum while providing a perfect foundation for a manicure. If your nails have an uneven texture that is preventing you from achieving a flawless manicure, then try sundays studio’s ridge filler base coat, B. 04.

Using sundays studio’s nontoxic nail polish can help maintain the overall health of your nails because they are free from 10 harmful chemicals – including formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate – that can weaken and damage nails over time. Colors like No. 21 & No. 31 are perfect for the Fall and Winter. To finish off and help your manicures and pedicures last longer, apply a thin coat of sundays studio’s protective top coat, T.01.

It doesn’t matter how great your nail polish is, if your cuticle and hands are dry, without proper nail care your manicure might not be as vibrant as it should be. Try sundays studio’s healing and hydrating cuticle serums: Cs.01 and Cs.02. As we use our hands so often it’s easy to forget to care for them. Moisturizing can go a long way in keeping them healthy and youthful. Try sundays studio’s bergamot hand cream: Hc.01

When you’re ready to remove your nail polish, instead of reaching for an acetone-based polish remover that will dry out your nails, use a soy-based polish remover like the one from sundays studio: Pr.01. The formula is extremely hydrating because of Vitamins A, C, and E, as well as antibacterial because of the grapefruit seed essential oil.
