Hello everyone,

I some how managed to have this one nail split at the end of the nail tip no matter what.

Had never been this way.  Any remedies on how to prevent it from continuing to grow like this?

Thank you.

You might also try the nail bandages they sell at Sallys, they are very thin.  If the crack is in the corner, they help the nail grow out so you don't tear it down too far.  if the split is vertical it might help give the nail a chance to grow some.  They are inexpensie and might be worth a try.
