any tips on making my nails stronger? my diet is rich in nutrients and vitamins. i rub vitamin e on them often. i don't know what else to do. i'm using some strengthening nail polishes but it just doesn't seem right to have to use them chemical-stinking polishes to have healthy nails. my nails are really weak and peel a lot, and if i accidently hit something with my hand my nail splits instantly. this isnt so much a question for vanity's-sake as it is for my own well being. cracked nails hurt! please help!
