Get Great Nails with Garlic


As the title of this post suggests, you can get great healthy nails with garlic. But I don’t mean by eating it so don’t worry about having to buy a stash of gum. As someone with weak nails that constantly split, I have been using this neat little trick for a while and my nails have never been stronger nor been able to grow longer.

Simply place thin slices of 1 clove of garlic into a bottle of clear nail polish and use as a treatment or base coat. Do not worry, there is no odour once it dries. The reason garlic is good for the nails is because it contains selenium, which is an ingredient that helps to strengthen the proteins in nails.
