Soft Nails

This might belong more in style, but I thought it might also belong here? (sorry mods!)

Anyway...
I wear nail varnish all the time. It's the only thing that stops me from biting my nails! Recently though I've noticed that when I remove the nail polish my nails seem really soft but kind of dry? It's weird. I also have little flecks of brown at the tops of my nails where the pink bit turns into the white bit. Is this maybe just cause my nails aren't used to growing? I'm willing to accept that I'm probably lacking something in my diet - so if this is the case, what is it that I need??

Ta! :heart:

    This good make sense. I have milk in my tea and cereal and I occasionally have yoghurt as a snack but I have *drastically* cut down on cheese since starting my healthy eating regime!

    Also try not wearing nail polish at least once a week, to let your nails 'breathe'.
