WHY  HAS MY NAIL BED TURNED GREEN?

Could it be caused by the nail salon that I just went to?

What is nail fungus and is it permanent?

How do we get the so called fungus that turns the nail bed green?

Customers are forever asking me these questions so I thought I would explain everything you need to know about nail fungus in my next blog post…

I first began doing nails in Canada, and then I moved to Florida, USA.  The point in me saying this is because in Canada the climate in British Columbia is super cold! Therefore,  I had never seen a nail fungus (that is when the nail bed goes from yellow slowly to a green colour) because of the non-humid weather conditions in Canada. When I moved to Florida it was very beautiful hot weather but it had a hot muggy and humid air quality  which is the ideal climate to promote that ugly nail fungus growth.

Well that is were I got my education in FUNGUS!!!

You see fungus lives in warm and wet (anything warm and wet)! Now add that to nails that lift a bit from one side or the other and add a bit of water (we all have to wash dishes by hand now and then) and you’ve got FUNGUS! YUCK!

WHY?

Because the artificial nail has lifted from your natural nail, which adds JUST enough water to trap under there and stay warm.

A BREEDING GROUND  for FUNGAS!!!

HELP!!! My nail bed has gone an ugly shade of GREEN!

IF this happens to your nail bed PLEASE don’t get scared as there is absolutely nothing to worry about.  All you have to do is give me a call and I’ll help it disappear for you! What I do is take the artificial nail off which is the easy part because it is half off any way otherwise your nail bed would never go green if the nail was not lifting. I will then put a new nail on for you!

In my part of country in White Rock, British Columbia, it is dry and cold and the nail has to be lifting for about 5 days before  it turngo green. Unfortunately in warmer climates it may only take a day or two to go green on you. I’m here to help you fix your nail bed and make it all pretty again so just drop me a call to set up an appointment.

Let’s talk about one more type of NAIL FUNGUS…

This is the type of fungus that you have to get a medication for to cure!!!

Don’t know what type of fungus you have? ASK ME!

A normal nail fungus happens when the nail goes green, because of a artificial nail lifting. It doesn’t require any type of medication, its a matter of taking the artificial nail off and putting on a new one.

Now if you have a nail gungus like the one in this picture, you need to let your nail lady tell you what to get to solve this fungus so contact her!

Your NAIL LADY HAS TO KNOW all about what can happen  to your nails

How Can I Fix my Broken Nail?

It never seems to fail and you here that pretty, manicured nail go “SNAP”.

We’ve all heard it and wince knowing our gorgeous nails are going to look like crap holding that glass of wine at our blind date tonight.

What’s a girl going to do?

Whether your nails are gel or acrylic nail breaks can HURT LIKE HELL because most times they have cut into your nail bed. Next thing you know there is blood all over the place.

Why do nails break?

Nails break for many reasons. The main one being we smacked it against some object or got it caught under something and pulled it out at a wrong angle to make it snap off. Most reasons our nails break are because of us not paying attention to what we are doing instead racing to get something done. Sometimes weather can cause our nails to become brittle as well due to low humidity and dry heat, most often in the winter. There are also other environmental causes that you can avoid just by wearing gloves when you are washing your dishes. Even biting your nails or cuticles can introduce ugly bacteria which can weaken your nail bed. Sometimes, nails that always break is a sign our body is not healthy so always consult a doctor to rule out any general health problems.

What should you do if you break a nail?

Call your nail lady to fix it! I’ve been in business for years and there isn’t a break I haven’t seen or not been able to fix. Don’t  try any of the do-it-yourself fixes from bandage wraps to trying to glue it back with crazy glue. These methods will only extend the excruciating pain even longer.

If you’ve got a broken nail, don’t think you should try to let it heal for a few days , before  you call the nail lady to fix the nail and keep using your hand or even try sleeping it away because the minute something touches that finger be guaranteed you’ll be in PAIN!

Instead, drop me a call and I’ll fit you into my day and fix it quickly for you so you can move on with your day as pretty (and painless) as before that nasty break.  What I can do for that broken nail will be like putting a cast on a broken leg, you wont feel the pain any more and you will be able to use your hand right away, and it will heal for you.

You’ll then be able to enjoy that date tonight with your guy and show off your beautiful nails!

Have you ever had a bad nail break before and what did you do to try and fix it until you eventually got to your nail lady?
