I cut them waaaay too short the last go. No white at the tip. But now as they are growing a couple nails are breaking. They look healthy otherwise. Can anyone recommend a good strengthener that you've had luck with?

I Use a product called Salon Sciences Artificial Nails. A coworker had recommended it to me after I had my artificial nails taken off and my nails were thin and broke easily. If you put two coats on it makes a nice hard coating that gives your nails more strength.

Oh awesome! Thanks! I think they probably are weaker from the gel I had on two polishes ago. I probably shouldn't have had them polished after the removal. :/ Thanks again!!

I have had luck with Sally Hansen nail strengthener. Also when filing your nails let the sides grow out a little cause when you file the sides down it weakens the nail.
