In ancient Egypt, China and some othersOnly the elite could care for the nails of the notorious countries. They were either rich people belonging to a noble family, or girls who are related to religion. In this case, the color of paint in those days played a rather important, almost mystical role. And if one of the slaves violated the established rules and used golden, red and other bright colors, those who disobeyed were cruelly punished. Nowadays, women rarely give any special significance to manicure. It's usually done to get your hands in order and look neat. Agree, broken nails with peeling paint look, to put it mildly, not attractive. In addition, through damaged skin and microcracks, bacteria and infection can enter the human body.
