前幾年,有一種「金屬甲」潮流,使用一盒小小的粉狀,塗抹左手甲上,使看起來像一面鏡子,還能反光出自己的樣子。

最近,外國又流行一種銀白色粉狀,塗抹出來後有帶出雷射效果,他們普遍只塗在指尖上,”令”得來特別又不會太浮誇。這款「雷射美甲」在不同環境下能帶點幻彩感覺外還有塗了幼閃效果,而且又能襯托任何衣和場合,令不少女生或上班一族喜愛。

Can Over-cut Nails lead to Abscesses?

It is commonly believe that keeping the nails extremely short is a good hygiene practice. However, recently a male students who over cut his toenails and it himself up with chronic paronychia. His nails grew into the skin, causing the skin to swell up with disgusting pus. It basically looked like a lump growing on his toe, giving him excruciating pain. Doctors pointed out that, those who cut their nails too short, pulling nail or handling too much detergents are prone to have paronychia.

According to the news, this student usually cut his nails very short every week. He did not think much of it when his big toe swelled up and hurt. He thought it was the tight shoes that cause the pain during his basketball practices. He continued to ignored it until it started to look like a sarcoma. It hurt too much that he could not even put on his shoes. The doctor diagnosed it as chronic Paronychia.

The dermatologist said that this is a severe case. Granulation tissue has already formed on half of the big toenail. This was mainly caused by cutting the nails way too short. The nail then grew into the skin. With the presence of germs and prolonged friction, eventually it resulted in repeated infection. Apart from improper nail cutting, pooling of nails and handling too much detergent can also lead to paronychia. If the person continued to ignore the symptoms, it would gradually turn into serious chronic paronychia.

Dermatologists gave three advice to prevent Paronychia. Firstly, do not cut nails too short. Start by trimming of the shop corners. Then cut the nail across by leaving one millimeter white space on the top. Secondly, don’t wear shoes that are too tight. A good shoe should have enough space at the front allowing the toes to move. Lastly, since infection may happen if the skin is injured while clipping the nails. It is advisable to cut nails after shower.. The nails will be soft. It is easier to cut and injuries is less likely to happen.

剪指甲要剪幾入? 剪得太盡會生瘡流膿!

很多人都覺得指甲要「剪到最短」才乾淨,但最近一名男學生卻因此得了慢性甲溝炎,指甲的兩側嵌進肉裡,導致紅腫流膿,甚至腳趾還像是長出了一顆肉瘤,讓男學生痛到受不了,醫生也提醒,剪指甲不當、斷拔指甲倒刺,或是長期接觸清潔劑的人都容易發生甲溝炎。

根據報導,這名男學生平常很愛乾淨,每周都會剪手腳的指甲,而且剪得非常短,某次他剪完後發現拇指有些發紅腫痛,但並沒有放在心上,此後打籃球時腳拇趾都會紅腫疼痛,甚至流膿,但男學生一直以為是鞋子不合腳導致的,長期下來他才發現腳拇趾邊緣漸漸長出一顆肉瘤,這下一碰就痛、連鞋子都穿不了,就醫後被確診為慢性甲溝炎。

皮膚科醫生表示,男學生的病況是嚴重的甲溝炎,腳大拇趾有一半的指甲已經被肉芽覆蓋,患病的主要原因是他時不正確的剪指甲習慣,如果指甲剪太短,兩側將會嵌進肉裡,長期下來使指甲跟肉產生摩擦,感染細菌後使炎症反覆發作,除了剪指甲習慣錯誤,亂拔倒刺和長期接觸洗滌劑的人都容易發生甲溝炎,而慢性甲溝炎因為初期狀況不明顯,容易被患者忽略,所以長期下來狀況會更嚴重。

醫生表示對於「預防甲溝炎」提出了三項建議,其一是指甲不要剪太短,最好是先將兩側尖角修鈍,以減少對周邊組織的刺激,指甲前端的白色也要留出一毫米,不要剪太深;其二是鞋頭不要太緊,要留出腳趾活動的空間;最後是指甲破損受傷都容易感染細菌,建議在剪指甲前先洗澡,這樣指甲變軟會更好剪,也不容易受傷。

注意如果情況較為嚴重應儘量找醫生或者專業人士處理,及早治療。

[Perfect for Gradient Nails] OPI Neo-Pearl 2020 Infinite Shine Nail Lacquer

You know it is special when we make a separate post to talk about the OPI Infinite Shine collection nail polish of the same series. And it is!  I was struck  when I first saw the translucent and luminous collection. The effect changes as you ad on the layers.  If you use white as the Base-coat, you can build up the layers and create a three dimensional pearlized effect. This is perfect for creating gradient nails.  Here’s how you can do it:

Start by applying first coat to all five fingers. let dry.  While leaving the pinky alone, apply second coat to the rest four fingers and so on.  The thumb will be the only one that has five coats.  There you got a vertical ombre that goes from transparent to opaque.

[玩漸變都得] OPI Neo-Pearl 2020 Infinite Shine 指甲油

相信讀者們都知道我們好少介紹 OPI 的 Infinite Shine Lacquer 指甲油,因為每次同系列的顏色是一樣,但今次一定一定要介紹!因為小編見到已經心心眼,它的質地中那種透薄外還加點通透感,每塗一層就有不同變化,你可以因應自己喜好而去選擇;喜歡嘗試珍珠3D效果,你可用白色作底色;想添玩味可做個漸變,由尾指塗一層,無名指塗兩層,如此類推,到手指公塗五層(不過要多點時間等乾喔)。
