My nails are pretty long, but they break a lot. When they break they take a long time to grow back out and it really bothers me. Is there anyway that I can make them grow faster, or ever prevent them from breaking?
You can take prenatal vitamins, they help with hair and nail growth and strength.
my nails grow long really fast but are very soft and break easily, because of this i have had gel overlays on my nails for 3 years.
it is a layer of gel over the natural nail to make it stronger and stop it breaking, i then have to get these infilled every 2 weeks - you can use acrylic for this too.
ive also heard solar oil is good for making nails stronger and over all healthier.
As Sara said you can take prenatal vitamins (or any kinds of vitamins) or just eat more fruits and vegetables.
You can maintain a short nails for a few weeks without applying nail polish.
And one really good tip - every night before go to bed apply (with cotton or fingers) small amount of olive oil (or any kind of natural oil) into your nails. That will make your nails very strong.
