Lack of some vitamins or minerals?

Nailtiques formula 2 worked for me I also tried the ones you've mentioned.

Yes they are, no more peeling and really strong. I've just had to cut them again!

My bending and peeling nails are much better since I started using a glass nail file. I also take perfectil when I remember or can be bothered to buy.

With mine I think it's to do with how often they get wet: washing kids' hands, washing up, laundry, dusting, all that stuff. When I was on honeymoon and not doing a jot of housework they were perfect.
Do you wear Marigolds for everything chore-related?

This is amazing. The only thing that worked for me!
