These are actually great tips, especially the first one. TRUST ME, I used to get my nails done @ salons. They would cut my cuticles, I would bleed a couple of times, and I eventually got warts. I’ve been battling these suckers for over a year, so there’s been no nail polish for me in that time. They’re FINALLY starting to clear up, but the ones around my cuticles (and possibly under my nails) are being pretty stubborn. DO NOT LET ANYONE CUT YOUR CUTICLES. It opens you up to bacterial infections and viruses like warts, and you do not want these little bastards, trust me. Also, regarding biotin: If you take a dosage higher than 2500 mg per day, you’re likely to wind up with acne. 1000-2500 mg is plenty to make your nails grow strong and healthy (and fast!). It really does work.
