My nails grow so very slowly, and I want longer prettier nails. Are there any supplements or external topical treatments to help them grow faster that have actually been proven to work by science?
Okay, I feel a bit goofy asking this question...but here goes! I just got back from my trusty nail salon. For the second time this winter, the nail polish on my toes was completely destroyed on the brief 10-minute walk home from the salon. Any advice on keeping polish looking nice when open-toed shoes aren't seasonally appropriate? [more inside]

Hey All, I think I know the answer to this questions already, but I thought I would throw it out there to you, a trusted audience of my peers. I cracked my toenail on the biggest toe. It looks like someone took a nibble out of it. Nothing hurts, there is no damage to the nail bed. Should I just let it grow out? [more inside]
Do you know a nail polish that is fee of chemicals like formaldehyde, etc.? I think they call it the 4 free or 5 free.........I tried the polish called "Butter" but it chipped right away. I'm willing to even just have 2 or 3 free if I can have a polish that does not chip the next day. I'm just trying to find something with "less" chemicals than the normal polish. Thanks.

I used to be a nail biter but managed to break the habit a few years ago. Now my nails are actually growing and yay! They look pretty good! However, they are weak and as hell and break off. I have an important event coming up in two months where my hands will be looked at by many people. I would like to have nice looking nails, but I am getting paranoid that I am going to break a nail (or multiple) the day before or some such horror. Are fake nails a good idea? [more inside]
I accidentally pushed my cuticle back too far and now my nail is, well, missing a spot. Like the nail wasn't finished forming and I disrupted it, so it just didn't form for a horizontal length of about 2 or 3mm. It didn't bleed, but I'm worried that there's irreversible damage to the spot and my nail will never grow there again. Has anyone ever had this happen before? Did it eventually go back to normal? How should I care for the blank spot while it grows out? Pictures: 1 2

I am looking for a nail salon in Manhattan or Brooklyn (Brooklyn is preferred) that is affordable, clean and serves wine while we get our nails done. Ideally it would charge under $60 for a mani/pedi.

I accidentally pried my fingernail back about a year ago and it hasn't reattached itself entirely. In essence, I've done the same damage one might receive from having bamboo shoots stuck under the nail. The thin white crescent at the tip/end of my finger still recedes where the damage occurred. I've looked at a lot of MeFi posts regarding fingernail injuries but haven't found quite what I'm talking about. I've given it almost a year but it still hasn't reattached/resealed all the way. The nail itself isn't damaged and the injury never went more than halfway down my nail (so the cuticle and luna were never touched). Wikipedia describes something [more inside]
