In my personal experience, it's always best to try and use your own natural nails, even if they are thin, hooked, etc. I feel the use of any glue will ultimately make your nails dry and brittle. The tone I get with fake nails is so far from the tone from my natural nails, I now would rather wait for a broken nail to grow back and use only flesh until it does. And since i keep my nails very short, it only takes a couple weeks to grow back.
Only in extreme cases would I ever recommend using fake nails. The sound from different natural nails is very specific, almost intimate thing for me. But that's just me, I'm sure there are plenty of people who get great tone from fake nails. It's just not the case for (I think) most of us.
The cyanoacrylate glue I used before still affects my "m" nail, and because it's on the longest finger, I still repeatedly break it. If I new then what I know now, I'd just wait for it to grow back instead of rushing to glue something else on there. In the meantime, keep it moist with castor oil. Sea kelp, calcium, and other supplements help strenghthen them too.
Sorry for the ramble, hope this helps.
