do not put anything on your nails, it will just ruin them more.

just paint them, to help them look pretty, but you really need to grow them out!

rub vitamin E oil into the cuticle of your nails.

It will take a long time for the nail to grow out and for the damage to grow out with it.

DON'T go to the salon. Do it at home.

Vitamin E around the cuticles. Snips to trim cuticles.


Buff the topside of the nail. GENTLY.


Apply clear coat.

LEAVE THEM ALONE!


I've rehabbed my nails a few times. Just some tips (no pun intended).

Your nails will continue to flake until the damaged areas have grown all the way out. Just keep applying a clear coat and use lotion. Keep your nails trimmed down (thin nails tear more), and wish them luck.

the acrylics didn't ruin your nails as bad as you think.... it's the lack of vitamins that help strengthen them.

Don't waste your money at the nail salon. Vitamin E is great. Also Biotin works slower but it helps strengthen your nails from the inside out.

Have a fabulous day Ladies!!! ~Monique
