Do your nails break and peel, and are you tired of dealing with that condition? Why not check out the way you file them. They say that nails stay stronger when you shape the tip to mimic the shape of the base.
So, if the cuticle end of your nail is a half-moon or an oval, file the tip in a similar shape. If the cuticle end is square (or “squoval” – between a square and an oval) use that as a guideline.
The problem is, what if your nail is simply just weak like mine? I can’t grow my nails long because aside from the fact that I’m no longer comfortable having long nails, they also break easily. It’s good, my nails are inherently long and slender, so they still look feminine and nice even if they are trimmed short.
