Why is China Glaze so much better than any other product out there?
China Glaze is one of the top professional nail care products available. Our unique, one-of-a-kind formula contains a special balance of polymers, to maintain color, shine and luster, and resins, to enhance flexibility and adhesion, that work together to create a nail lacquer that is chip-resistant, long lasting and durable.
What are nails anyway?
Nails are a protective covering made of proteins called keratin, consisting significantly of amino acids similar to your hair. Underneath this protective covering is the matrix, the only living part of your nail. Part of the matrix, the lunula, is the white crescent at the beginning of your nail. Your cuticle is the layer of skin that protects the matrix.
I have always had ridges in my nails. Is there a way for me to minimize them for smoother manicures?
Vertical nail ridges, which run form the cuticle to the tip of the nail are fairly common and have different causes. They can occur when nail growth is uneven, indicating a sign of injury or poor nutrition, specifically iron deficiency. Heredity may also play a role. Try gentle buffing to minimize the ridges. China Glaze Ridge Filler is a smoothing base coat that is ideal for filling ridges to provide an even surface for manicures.
What is the best way to keep my cuticles healthy and soft?
Moisturize! Use China Glaze Orange Cuticle Oil. It penetrates deeply and quickly to soften cuticles while giving natural nails increased flexibility and strength. A special blend of five nourishing oils, including jojoba and rice bran, moisturize, while antioxidants vitamin A, C & E and botanical extracts act as a natural soothing and antiseptic agent. For an added bonus, massage the Orange Cuticle Oil into the cuticle to stimulate nail growth.
