A lot of people desire long, white and strong nails but they are saddled with brittle ones that snap anytime it comes in contact with anything apart from the fact that they are usually dreaded by manicurists when getting nails done.

These two weird tips involving orange juice and olive oil works on the nail!

1. With Fresh Orange Juice

Fresh range juice contains antioxidants that boosts nails' appearance and strength.

Soak nails in fresh orange juice for ten (10) minutes every day to help them grow faster and stronger. Afterwards, rinse the nails thoroughly to remove every trace of citric acid (the acid juice contains) from the nails. Moisturize the nails with cream to restore moisture.
