5. Avoid Acetone

Acetone, used to remove nail paint, makes the nails dry and brittle. Super dry and brittle nails can become drier and unhealthier because of exposure to acetone. It makes the nails dry and also causes damage to the cuticles. Try using a nail polish remover that is free of acetone. Since many manicurists suggest a 10-minute acetone soak prior to a gel manicure, avoid getting a gel manicure till the time your nails become healthy. Furthermore, gel manicures make nail beds fragile and thin. Get gels properly removed at a salon to avoid this.
