What is a good way to strengthen flimsy nails?

My nails are like baby nails. They are very thin and flexible. I have tried several nail strengtheners with no success. Any ideas?

  • If you can afford it, have your nails silk wrapped. I cant think of any off the shelf strengtheners off hand that work great. I do recall however, hearing that using Knox gelaton can strengthen them. GL !

    Maybe research the net to see if there is some dietary thing you could be doing differently to improve your nails

  • Try vitamins. You can get some cheap vitamins from Dollar General, a "Hair, Skin and Nail" formula.
