There is a new product out from a small company named REALNAILS. It is a nail fortifier/strengthener that truly is remarkable. My nails were weak, flimsy and my cuticles were rough and flaky. I applied this product to my nailbeds and cuticles twice a day for 2 weeks and voila.....Gorgeous, strong, healthy nails. And my cuticles are smooth and soft. The website is www.realnails.com. You have to try it!!! Really amazing stuff.
