File your nails correctly
To keep your nails at their strongest, avoid filing in a back-and-forth motion – go in only one direction. And never file just after you’ve gotten out of a shower or bath. Wet nails break more easily.
Try this finger massage
Massage your nails to keep them extra strong and shiny. Nail buffing increases blood supply to the nail, which stimulates the matrix of the nail to grow, says Galvez.
Keep ’em polished
Polish your nails, even if it’s just with a clear coat. It protects your nails, says manicurist Diaconescu. If you prefer colour, use a base coat, two thin coats of colour, and a top coat. Colour should last at least seven days but should be removed after 10 days.
