Short - stop NIBBLING. Get nasty tasting nail stuff, wear woolly gloves, fine yourself AND promise yourself a professional manicure when your nails are long enough

Peeling - start putting on a good protective base coat, should help with the splitting

Cuticles - get a good hand cream and moisturise your cuticles properly. If you can afford to splash out L'Occitane do a lovely lavender one

Invest in a glass nail file - so much nicer than emery boards - and if you break/split/catch a nail then don't be tempted to chew it but use your lovely glass file to sort it out.

Start putting polish on them. It'll make them look nicer and you'll feel better instantly.

I used this (the kit on the right) a few years ago after my mum bought it for me one Xmas. I have always suffered with bad nail, they split easily, are ridged - this stuff sorted them out. I was amazed, it's really good and I still use it now.

There's a really old product called NuNale that's been around for ages. It's just a cream you massage in and it strengthens them - I've been using it for over 30 years.
