I used to be a nail biter, and I've recently been able to stop the habit by using bad tasting polish. However, I noticed once my nails started to grow that they are very thin and soft and they peel on occasion. They aren't necessarily brittle because they never break, but they are ridiculously flexible. I can literally bend them in half and they won't break. If anything they'll get kind of caught on something and get a tear in them. Recently I've been wearing nail polish in attempt to make my nails a bit stronger, and it helps for the most part, but it's a pain to have to paint them so often. Also I've made the mistake of casually mentioning my insanely soft nails to my mother and now she thinks there's something wrong with me because once she saw on television that nail problems can be an indicator of poor health or disease or something of the like. So, does anyone know if there are any particular causes of soft, weak nails? Any help is appreciated :)
