I wanted to ask if anyone knows of a real/proven method that they have tried for making your nails stronger and grow. I have bought nail harderners but they dont really work.
And my nails are always so weak and they break easily and they peel alot. so i was hoping someone would know of a good product of remedy that actually works.
thanks so much!

  • You can start taking biotin. It's a supplement sold in most pharmacies - I know Walmart, Walgreens, and Rite Aid all carry it. It helps hair and nails grow strong.

  • biotin does work. I use if for my horses when hoof probelms arise.
    You can also use vitamins and increase your protein intake.

  • What the other ladies have said, plus I use Sally Hansen's VITASURGE Growth Gel. You use it once a day either on bare nails or over polish. If you are taking biotin or some other vitamin internally and using this on your nails I guarantee you'll see positive results! Best wishes!

  • I bought "Nail Magic" it is a little pink bottle of stuff and that worked very well, but you break a nail with that stuff you will feel it >.
