Nails

Any recommendations for nails, mine are so brittle and split all the time. I do use a buffer to smooth the ridges and use clear varnish but they don't seem to be improving. I used to have lovely long nails before but now there so short x

    vitamin e oil works well for me...not pills, but the bottled, some kinds have keratin. Work i to your cuticles. Also, try not to over buff. Good for the feet too,

    Hi Heather - it may be worth checking your vitamin D - my nails were awful and I found out my vit D was really low in some blood tests - since I started taking this my nails have improved and also the tiredness a bit too - good luck honey! x

    I take many supplements and my nails aren't the best either. If your not low in anything-- start rubbing cuticle oil on them at night. Also-- soaking them could be time consuming BUT I would do this as I watch TV-- bowl of olive oil, garlic gloves and salt--video online. It did help a lot just too time consuming.
