BTW, if anyone has problems growing out their nails or would just like a good strengthener, try the Nailtiques line of nail products. They're a protein-based system. I recommended it to a girlfriend who has never been able to grow out her nails (they were thin and weak) and now she has got full-on glam hands! Every time I see her, she flashes her nails at me.
I use their formula for dry & brittle nails. My nails have no problem growing, and are pretty thick. Problem is, when they break, they either peel, or break down really low on the bed of the nail which HURTS! Nailtiques made my nails much more flexible.
Yay, I love girly threads!
