You can make them strong quickly with Neocell Super Collagen.  It comes either as a powder you mix in orange juice or in capsules.  Should cost between ten and fifteen dollars.  Get at iherb, vitacost, Costco, health food stores.

It will also make your skin and hair beautiful! I have used it for two years, its a staple for me.

I take prenatal vitamins and apply a strengthener to my nails. I use OPI, but I'm sure there's a comparable drug store product.

I love Orly 'Tough Cookie' clear strengthener, as well as Orly Nailtrition.

I have the same problem! I take biotin daily to help strengthen my nails and hair.

Quick Tip

A great quick easy fix is to apply the Chapstick brand original chapstick to your nails before you go to bed. It moisturizes and hardens up your nails really well.

Fish Oil

I'd try taking fish oil capsules. The fatty acids in the fish oil supposedly helps strengthen and grow nails. Besides all of the different strengthening polishes you can put on your nails, I would definitely try to eat more "healthy fats" like nuts, fish, avocados, etc. Those will all naturally help with thin/weak nails.

Food.

I use to have the same thing, but this was due to using dark nail polish. I would use it very often and i wouldnt let my nails have free time. What i did was stop using color nail polish for a long while. I ate almonds, which are good for your hair and nails and loaded up on avocadoes. Try food that help your nails get stronger.
