Before you start using a nail hardener, make sure you are taking good care of your nails. Fragile nails break quickly and this can be caused by different reasons: The wrong filing technique: A zigzag movement opens the nail plates, allowing the nail to fill with water and dirt. The water, dirt and air make the nails vulnerable, causing your nails to break easily. Try a proper filing technique first, you might notice that your nails become stronger, making the nail hardener unnecessary. Dry nails: Your nails can dry out if they are often immersed in water and/or come in contact with cleaning agents. Working in the garden can also be damaging. Dry nails lack moisture and nutrients, which makes the nails split, peel and become extremely thin. Sound familiar?
