THURSDAY, APRIL 1C, 1942 BLYTHEVIL1,K (AUK.), COURIER NEWS Fingernails Can Be Prettier [At Popular New "War Length" BY ALICIA HAJfcT NKA Service Staff Writer Smart, war-burned women art takin» to the shorter-nails fashion with enthusiasm, whether or not "they wield a wrench in line of duty nowadays. And they're goinp in for reconditioning treatment manicures. It's a natural result of putting their minds to practical beauty. Yvonne Sergent, hand expert of one of Fifth Avenue's finest salons, reports that most women are pleasantly surprised, too, when they see that sensible grooming keeps their hands look ing prettier. Miss iSergent, who sagely never put a piece of sieei to finger flesh nor pointed a nail, even in the era of "the longer, the better." now suggests a reconditioning treatment manicure to "start off ri^ht" when women begin wearing .shorter nails—especially worn- 1 en who have weak, abused nails.! thnnks to corner.-; that were cut or ! filed too deeply. Tf that's wanted, the women nailtips are sheered off, straight across and Quite short. That's really the only way to handle nails that need to grow out at the corners. The nail is then shaped with an emery board—for sharp corners would catch and •break—but the .shaping is just the gentlest rounding of the center of the nail. This shape is maintained for from one to three months' depending on the nail's condition. The cuticle should never be cut It's pushed back. Hangnails are clipped. That's all. Then polish is applied: base, enamel, and protective sealer. CALCIUM "DIET" MAKES GOOD NAILS If you're troubled with splitting nails, you'd be wise to ask your manicurist to follow this method for a time, or to follow it yourself at home. \<jii might, simultaneously, build up the vitamin and calcium side of your dieU—:i pint of milk, daily, with its 10 grains of calcium, or six oranges wil/h the same amount.of calcium. Peanuts, pineapple and primes also are good. If you're doing nail-punishing work, you might even leave the |K>lLsh off during the day, for a while at least. They wil soon be in better condition, and will look much better than they ever BlytheviUe. The official l:\mily of the city now includes Mayor Ben P. Butler; Sam Coble, A. W. Young, J. B. Bunn, W W.
