8.      Nail condition can be an indicator of overall health, good and bad. Healthy nails should have the following qualities: pinkish color from cuticle to edge of nail bed, moisturized but hard, smooth throughout, a firm attachment to nail bed, and side edges that stop while still on top of your finger.  According to the American Academy of Dermatology, if your nails stray from these attributes, there is possibility of a problem. Look out for the following and their possible causes:

  • •    White nails: Potential liver condition
  • •    Half pink/half white nails:  Potential Kidney disease
  • •    Yellowing and thickening with a slowed growth: Potential Lung disease
  • •    Pale nail beds: Potential Anemia
  • •    Yellowed nails with slight blush at base: Potential Diabetes
  • •    Potential Osteoporosis also can be detected in nails


9.      If you have had a nail fungus in the past and suffer from discolored nails, Pedinol nail scrub can aid in cleansing, bleaching, smoothing out rough thickened nails.

10.   Show off your buffed and beautiful nails with a variety of OPI polishes! Pamplona Purple and DS Classic are perfect for the upcoming fall season.
