Caring for your nails
Don't abuse your nails. To prevent nail damage, don't use your fingernails as tools to pick, poke or pry things.

And cause and infection (Paronychia). Because your nails grow slowly. and injured nail retains signs of and injury for several months.
Protect your nails wear cotton - lined rubber gloves when using soap %26amp; water for prolonged periods or when using harsh chemicals.
Perform routine nail maintenance. Trim fingernails and clean under the nails regularly. Use a sharp manicure Scissors. Or clippers and emery board to smooth nail edges.

Try to drink milk and eat calcium suppliments....Calcium also keeps your bones fit....Once in a while if you do pedicure it helps you to get strong and healthy nails....
Your nails tell you alot about your general health. For strong nails eat gelatin foods and try vitamins. Prenatal if you can get some over the counter.
You will get your nails to grow stronger when your vitamins intake reach the top so, eat a balance meal and take some vitamins supplements, do not use chemicals without gloves and if possible when you're cooking rub some of the smelly garlic into your nails, this work , good luck.
Don't go and get fake ones on. They make your nails the same way you say they are now.
I know it sounds stupid , but every day you put your nails into the water it will make them stronger. And try not to color nails for about month. I hope it works.
its kinda gross but you can smash garlic and put it into rubber gloves and stick your hands in it. its better over night. remember to wash your hands after though. but it works trust me.
Milk drink lots of milk. It works

You can try a calcium suppliment. It takes awhile for the results to show but it can be worth it.
