I did the same it just takes a long time for them to regrow but I noticed that the last few months i changed my diet i eat healthy 5 small meals a day and my nails are growing very fast.  I also had gel manicure which i love but worry about the lights off they came too

Vitamins will help. For your weak nails I would get either Nail Magic hardener or Salon Science Instant Artificials. Both are great strengtheners & can be picked up at Sally Beauty Supply. It will take some time but you will have nice strong healthy nails.

Amen.  After my acrylics, had the same problem.  Started using nail magic from sally's and still do.  It made a difference in my nails.  It took my nails  about a year+ to get  back to normal.

I use quimica alemana hardener. It is from columbia and I got it on amazon. I put it on weekly when I change my nail polish. It makes my nails super hard and they grow faster.
