Brittle, Chipped nailsJanuary 08, 2014
It's bad enough we have to deal with dry cracked lips but also we have to deal with dry brittle nails. Well let's just thank Winter for that!
Using a super harsh nail filer to shape nails can cause the nail layers to separate, and cause unwanted peeling. Antimicrobial soaps, handwashing and only God knows what else, can cause nails to become dry and brittle causing nails to chip and peel.
I recommend you use a 240 grit or higher (280/320) nail file to shape natural nails and rehydrate cuticles and nails daily with coconut oil to keep nails strong and healthy.
Well as always I hope this helps!
