Beautiful nails speak volumes about a woman's sense of style and overall well-being.

Everyone's nails can look great just as long as they're well looked after and treated with a little respect.

So make your nails look fabulous with these these easy to remember steps:

- Don't scrub your nails too harshly.

- Top up your nail polish rather than remove it every day to limit the use of harmful remover,

- Don't cut your cuticles, push them back instead.

- An emery board is much better than a metal nail file.

- Eat a healthy, balanced diet rich in calcium vitamin B and potassium.

- Never, ever bite your nails.
