    Yogurt. (Or any other high in calcium thing too I should imagine) Any time I go on a yogurt binge my nails are absoutly amazing. And they usually are shit, weak and peal when I don't.


    I could also reccomend a dozen and a half sally hansen products :p

    my nails used to be terrible all flaky and split so i started taking a multivitimin and mineral (with zinc and copper and all kinds of stuff in) within a couple of weeks my nails were lots better, now i just take them now and again and all seems well! :)

    Skin, Hair and Nails formula from Holland and Barrett...I really can't tell if they do anything or not, but mentally they make me feel better.

    Perfectil. It's a well known fact that it actually works. I take it regularly and swear by it. It's also the favourite amongst the celebrity and beauty worlds.

    You should also get yourself a bottle of 'Nail Envy' by OPI. It's rather expensive at around £14 a bottle, but it's a miracle formula. My mum who has psoriasis and therefore thin and flaky nails, actually has long gorgeous strong nails now, after using Nail Envy for a few weeks...
