Default Some other nail tips

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 nail tech swears that olive oil is the best -- brush on nails to make them healthier. [After removing polish, of course!]

I have done that and I have nice nails.

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.

How do you care for your nails once the polish is on? Can you still do olive oil, or whatever?
