You can usually clean the top side of your nails easily with water in a few seconds.
Their shiny, smooth texture makes cleansing a breeze.
It is the underside that represents a problem.
Before growing longer than your fingertip, this surface was attached to the nail's bed.
It is porous and dirt is hard to clear off from it.
•To clean your nails, soap and water, with the help of your other nails, do a fine job.
•Only use a hard object, such as the tip of a file, if you need to.
•Try not to go too deep when going beneath the nail.
This area is easily hurt; it is normal that you can't reach the bottom.
