Your hair and your nails are probably the two parts of your body that you change the most, with haircuts, colours, nail polish and more.
Therefore, it’s not too far of a stretch to imagine that your hair and your nails are the two parts of your body that you pay the most attention to, and that you want to be glossy and shiny, long and strong.
