broken nails
My fingernails keep breaking far below the quick. I've tried polish and it didn't help. I try to remeber to keep them short but they just keep breaking on thier own.  Any ideas on how to resolve this minor problem ?

I have always had strong nails but they got very weak on treatment.  There are nail strengtheners you can buy at the store.  Keeping them trimmed is the best way.

I've treated twice and both times my nails got weaker.  Before treatment they're like iron and during treatment they get soft.  Since I'm a guy I just keep them short all the time anyway.  Just wanted you to know that it's not permanent.  After treatment they eventually go back to normal.

My nails seem stronger on tx. I have always had weak nails and have had them 'done'. Now with no energy, I gave that up. But my nails seem stronger and grow more now. I heard bones can grow too! Something positive in this dreadful stuff.

My nails got very thin on tx, I am 7 months out now, & they are improving.. but I still can't get any length past the finger tips & they will bend backwards (like paper) unless I do what alady mentioned & put a strengthener or hardner on them!

Maybe you'll get lucky & they'll do just the opposite of what they are doing now!!

My nails have also gotten stronger on treatment.  It almost reminds me of when I was pregnant with my youngest.  they seemed to grow better than ever.  If I can say anything good about being on this TX it's that right now I have beautiful nails.  LOL But that's about all.

I just keep a pair of (your own personal)clippers & a nail file close by. Mine seem to be very thin now, but that could also be because I took the acrylic nails off & that ripped some of my natural layers off.
