If your nails are thin or brittle, you may experience tearing at the corners or tips that break off all together. Implementing a regime aimed at strengthening them will ensure the days of broken nails are behind you. The process is simple enough once you know what you’re doing, and you can take daily steps to toughen up your nails without having to go to a professional manicurist.
1.Rub petroleum jelly into your nails and cuticles daily to keep them moisturized and to prevent them from becoming brittle.
2.File your nails daily, taking care to smooth out the corners to prevent tears in the nail.
3.Take a B vitamin daily to improve the thickness and strength of your nails.
4.Add more zinc to your diet to boost the color and strength of your nails. Milk and eggs are good sources of zinc.
5.Apply a coat of nail-hardening polish once a week to keep nails from breaking.
