My finger nails have always been weak. For as long as I can remember, they've grown no further than the tips of my fingers before splitting, peeling and breaking. I've used plastic nails for special occasions for many years. But, suddenly, even they have refused to co-operate. Every plastic naiI I try to stick just refuses to hold. Superglue doesn't hold nails in place!
At least I could depend upon my toenails to be painted and look decent during the months of open summer sandals......Till, about six months ago, when even they began to break at the tips. Toenails now so soft and weak that they split as soon as they grow to the tips of my toes. My right toenail is particularly susceptible to breaking. It grows to toe-tip, then splits right down the centre, then peels layer by layer, till it's a jagged, remnant of a nail. At that point, I have to try to emery-board it to some kind of level shape.
I use all manner of lotions and creams to try to keep my nails and finger/toetips in good condition, but both are constantly rough and jagged. I don't know what else I can do.
My daughter gets married on 1st August this year. Obviously, I want to present a decent front for the occasion. Hands and feet will be a problem, though, in that my nails wil not be pleasant to view.
Don't want to have to spend a small fortune on having extensions applied.
