I use a cream that contains floride for nails, I buy it as Sally beauty supply and it really helps to harden nails. I also use whiteining toothpaste or regular toothpaste to clean my nails with a nail brush, it takes the yellow out of nails and helps harden them. Im going to try the garlic though and see if that helps. My nails are always thin and weak so anything that works is worth a try.
my roommate is going to think im a fruit bat putting toothpaste on my nails and garlic in my base coat....

Olive oil is good, it keeps the cuticle nice, conditions the nail and leaves a nice shine. For better results pour some in a shot glass and microwave a bit so it's warm, soak nails in it for a few minutes this helps it to penetrate like a hot oil treatment for the hair.
