Nail Care Products

Nail care products have been used since the time of ancient Egyptians, during the time of the Pharaohs. To color their nails and fingertips, they use henna. This practice was to beautify the nails and also to signify social order. The Ancient Chinese, on the other hand, used colored lacquer which was made of gum Arabic, gelatine, beeswax and egg whites. Modern nail care products have a huge difference from these ancient products.

Modern-day nail care products are not only concentrated on the beautifying elements but also on hygiene and health. In maintaining healthy, beautiful nails, you don't have to worry about not finding the right products - you can buy them in many stores and use at home or get from the nail salon when you have an appointment.
