Every girl dreams of embracing her long and healthy nails! The charm of long (and well-groomed) nails is such that they accentuate the beauty of hands by multi folds. Alas, not all girls get to live this dream. Right from slow growth to getting brittle and chipped, nails give the worst kinda blues. And when you are a bride-to-be, the struggle is unfailingly real. 

After all, as a bride, all you want is to be the best version of yourself. Whether it is about having a perfect bridal glow and luscious hair or getting into shape to flaunt that sexy figure, nothing is compromisable when you are the bride. Not even your nails! We know you bank upon nail extensions, but hey, isn't natural always better than faux for a longer run?

So, wait no more and try out the following tips that'll ensure your nails grow faster naturally!

Best ways to grow nails fast naturally

~ Increase the intake of Biotin

If you want your nails to be healthy and grow fast, it is imperative to consume enough amount of Biotic on an everyday basis. Biotin aka Vitamin H is extremely essential for a speedy growth of nails and hair. Intake of around 30-40 micrograms of biotin is required per day to achieve long and healthy nails. You can consume it through foods like banana, avocado, and salmon or in the form of supplements. (Do not consume any supplements without prescription of your health adviser).

~ No more biting!

Well, this is the most obvious advice in this list but if you are also guilty of biting your nails too often, it is time to stop! This habit not only makes your hands look terrible but also leads to multiple bacterial infections that further slow down the growth speed of your nails.

Pro tip: Keep your nails polished always so that you resist biting your nails.

~ When life gives you lemons, use them for nail growth

Mix 1 tablespoon of lemon juice with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Heat the mixture for around 15 seconds and soak your nails in it for 10 minutes, and do this every day. The Vitamin C present in lemons fosters faster growth of nails.

~ Massage with coconut oil or olive oil

In order to make your nails grow faster, it is important to keep them nourished and moisturized.  Massage your nails and fingers with warm coconut oil or olive oil in a circular motion every night before going to sleep for at least 5 minutes. This will lead to blood circulation which eventually promotes nail growth.

~ Practice good grooming

To make your nails grow faster, it is important to keep your nails well-maintained. Regular nail grooming encourages nail growth, strengthens them and also reduces breakage. So, keep your nails dry and clean. Moisturize your hands frequently, especially the area around cuticles. Also, do not cut your nails too short. 

~ Applying base coat is a MUST!

 DO NOT skip the base coat while applying nail paint. The base coat acts as a protective layer between the paint and the topmost layer of your nail.

~ Watch your diet

The health of your nails is directly related to your dietary habits. And if your nails are unhealthy, their growth will obviously be slower. But you can prevent this scenario by eating lots of protein, Vitamin A and Vitamin B9 rich diet. All these supplements stimulate growth and ensure healthy nails.

~ Don't chip off the nail polish

This is yet another that you need to quit ASAP if your wedding is nearing. Cuz, when you chip off your nail paint, you end up peeling off the topmost layer of your nails. Consequently, your nails get weaker and brittle.
