I'm Amy Hamilton-Weldon, Oakwood Nail Spa, Raleigh, North Carolina, and we're going to discuss how to encourage nail growth. If you want your nails to grow longer, there are lots of different things you can do and everybody is different. So, a lot of people take gelatin tablets, or you know, eat gelatin, and some people will do that and say, "You know, I think it's working." And then, some people, "I did that for a month and it didn't do a thing." Well, that is just because your body is different than her body, and so if it works for her, she should continue doing it, if you've tried it and it didn't work for you, then don't ever try it again, because it's not going to work for you. And, that's the hard thing, because, you know, we ask each other, "Well, what do you do?" And somebody's got beautiful nails, "Oh, what do you do for your nails?" "Oh, I do this." And then you try it and it doesn't work for you, and it's discouraging because you don't have anything else to go on. But you just you have to talk to several people and try several different things, and when you find one that works for you, then you stick with it. If it's a product that's not a million dollars, try it, and give it a fair try, you know, you probably have to use it a month or so and you know, it might work for you and it might not. And polish does help strengthen your nails. It gives it an extra coat of something, an extra layer of protection and it will keep them from maybe getting as dried out, you know, from things like water and things that you put your hands in. OK, those were just some basic tips, but you should always consult a nail professional.
