since single, i recently started growing out my nails, not something I'm accustomed to doing. My only problem is that my nails seem really thin and weak, they always break on the sides and sometimes even start to spil like two overlapping nails meeting only in the middle. does this happen to anyone or does anyone have any suggestions to make my nails stronger?

Moisturise your nails and cuticles often, avoid biting them and picking at them, buy something that strengthens them - there's heaps of stuff out there.

Apparently, too much water is really bad for nails too. You should moisturise as soon as you've had a bath/shower/washed your hands.

I noticed that too. Too much water seems to make it more fragile, but they do grow long faster.

I always keep my nails short now because I have no time to look after them (or paint them). I also don't want to accidentally scratch my baby.

fingernails are just keratinized skin cells. for healthy skin and hair, it's as simple as eating a healthy, well-balanced diet

my nails grow super fast and super hard because i jam them in doors a lot and i drink a lot of water and never paint them or anything..... and i tear them not bite or clip them.... but the best is to slam them in doors
