What do you recommend?

Nailtiques.
I use the protein formula 2 but they have a couple of different ones. Have a read through to see which one is best suited to what you need.
The cheapest place I've found to get it is lookfantastic.com

If you want something to cover them with whilst they grow, you could try gel polish - will last 2 weeks and you won't have to look at them!

Agree with nailtiques if you want to treat them & you can stand to look at them!

Thanks both, will definitely have a look smile

It's looking like I need formula 2. It seems a bit cheaper on beauty bay, anybody used that sire?

No I haven't, hoping you'll report back as I'll be needing more soon wink
Hope it works!

I don't know but will be watching with interest, mine are exactly the same.

I have had some success with Dr Lewinns Renunail, it's definitely the best varnish type hardener I have ever used but I think my nails fundamentally dislike polish.

I'm now trying naked nails with a combination of emu oil and mavala scientifique.

I am also using the mavala scientifique with boots own nail and cuticle oil and a coat of nails inc ridge filling base coat. They feel a lot stronger and look much better than before.

Dr Lewinns Renunail is definitely working for me. In the last 6 months I've tried Mavala Scientifique and Opi Nail Envy, neither of which made any difference. I'm about 4 weeks into the Renunail and I think there is a definite improvement in their condition.
