    My nails aren't too nasty, but they are very short and although i don't bite them they just seem to tear at the edges and i end up pulling off any growth. Has anyone got any tips on how i can imporve the strength of my nails in order to grow them to a decent length and make them look pretty?

    take calcium supplements because that could be the reasoning behind weak nails- lack of calcium. i bit my nails and they are strong and i drink a lot of milk

    wear no nail varnish! I have the same problem because I used to wear clear nail varnish but a month without the stuff and my nails are looking very foxy

    do you use nail strengthener? its the clear nailvarnish that strengthens the nails. try and use it as it seriously helps.

    also do you have a lack of iron?
    the fact that you dont drink milk and dont like it means that may be the reason why they are weak!
    like stated above add nesquik to the milk and it will be yummy

    paint your nails with light colours as nailpolish makes them strong

    erm.... file your nails rather than cut them as its not good for your nails if you cut them.

    if your that desperate to have longish nails try acrylic nails.
    here they put some powder thing on your nails and then make is solid. so it makes your nails much stronger.
    my mum uses it but not cos she has weak nails but cos she does alot of work with water and with this product her nails dont become weak from it and the nail varnish stays on for 3 weeks.

    hope that helps

    have a manicure. it will show you how fab your nails can look, hopefully this will encourage you to take calcium supplements, not bite/ tear your nails and always use strengthener in the future. plus, it's nice to be pampered. phoebe xxx
