For starters, daily wear and tear can contribute to nail damage. Improper care and removal of acrylics, gels, and press-ons can weaken nails to be flimsy, brittle, and breakable, too. Here’s the secret, though: you can prevent it from happening (and not just by being precious with your next mani). Whether you have naturally thin, soft nails or are suffering from post-acrylic or gel damage, the best fix for weak nails is a solid nail strengthener or hardener. These nutrient-rich formulas protect and reinforce the nail structure to promote a healthy, hearty nail bed with the help of proteins and nourishing oils. With regular use, your nails will be longer, stronger, and ready to rock the latest nail trends.
