I need help! My nails are just unbearable without polish on them. They peel so easily, no matter how much I seem to baby them. What have YOU used to strengthen and help your nails? I wanna know products, prices, and reviews girls! Thanks in advance!!

Sally Hanson does great products for nails, I also have the same problem but recently I purchased their newest polish, Green Tea and Bamboo nail strengthener and my nails have gone stronger and dont peel as much ! :)

Well,I don't really use strengtheners. I did pick up some of these tips tho:
1.Never clip your nails unless very nessecary,only file them.
2.Use Non-Acetone polish remover,the other dries your nails and makes the peel.
3.Always use a basecoat before applying nail polish.
These are basically all the things I do,you could also buy some nail strentheners. Oh! and also! if you do all these things and your nails still dont look good and you ALWAYS need polish on them,put a topcoat on them to protect,strenthen,and make them look nice and healthy!
Hope I helped!

I think I read somewhere that weak nails have alot to do with your diet as well as keeping your hands moisturised. ( I could be mistaken tho as my memory is a bit off :P)
when mine chip I eat alot of yoghurt, broccoli, carrots and jell-o.
you should check out nivea hand and nail cream. it helped me back in the day, but not so much anymore. I don't know why >:/
sally hansen has tons of nail strengtheners and hardeners. all the ones that ive tried work well for me. the last one i bought from her literally cost me like 2$ and its been working very well :)

I have the same problem, I find keeping them well moisturized seems to help. I start off with sally Hansen VitaSurge strengthening gel and ofter that has soaked in I go over the nail , cuticle and skin at the base of the nail with sally Hansen vitamin E nail oil. I also like to use Burt's Bee's lemon cuticle cream. I also try not to peel my nail polish off because it makes the delaminating worse on my nails.
Orly's "Nail Defense" worked well for me. It's about $8 but I think it's worth it. I used it once a week for awhile and noticed a difference. Sally Hansen's nail hardener also works well and it's inexpensive.

Lacey, I suggest you try "complex for hair nail and skin" vitamins from Nutrilite. it is an organic Vitamin, it has biotin which will help you keep your nails strong. http://www.amway.com/healthyshoppin...
Firstly, i take a biotin supplement. It doesnt matter what type. Mine aids skin, hair, and nails
Secondly, I rarely polish my nails. I rub olive oil or flaxseed oil into my cuticles, nail bed, and nail surface for moisture.
Lastly, if you do polish your nails, make surw to use a base coat first( i like sally hansen), and a gentle polish remover. But, for now I'd let your nails breathe before polishing them anytime soon!
