And I'm starting to get more serious about my nails.
I've got quite good shaped nails but I think they're too thin and bendy and I really to hardened them naturally.
PS I eat a good healthy diet already
Naturally? Sorry, genes are genes, either you've got them or you don't. Natural cures for thin nails are like natural cures for baldness. If your diet is good and you have no nutritional deficiencies, then you'll have to artificially harden your nails.
I think there is only one 'treatment' that has been proven to help with nails, even that is probably a marginal improvement. I forget what the actual product is called, biotin? Not sure I would want to take it though.
That's altogether different to something that you apply direct to the nail that helps strengthen it. I suppose with these varnishes/nail strengtheners you only need apply them to the whites of the nail.
Biotin is a good supplement, I've used it on horses hooves. But, here's the deal as with any supplement, they will address a deficiency. If, you are not deficient you will eliminate what your body doesn't need. Your genes dictate. You can make it worst but you can't make your brown eyes blue- "naturally".
