Our nails are incredible things. Not only are they geniously designed to help us pick things up, they also help to protect our fingers and toes from harm. These days, many people – women in particular – love to use their nails to show off their own unique style. Whether it’s through the colours and patterns they paint on their nails, or through the length and style they are shaped into.
