Once again, RachelN is totally right. Sometimes if they have buffed off too many layers off the top of your nail, your nail will actually be thinner and weaker, and there is nothing you can do to fix that except waiting for new nail to grow out from the matrix. I do use a moisturizing nail and cuticle oil called TIPS, and I really love it. Even using hand lotion several times daily will improve the appearance even of damaged nails. The healthier that your cuticles are, the better nail growth you will see, so keep them protected and moisturized. Good luck.What can you use to help real nails heal after fake nail have been removed?
Using good quality cuticle oil 2-3 times a day will help. So does using hand lotion several times a day, especially after each time you wash your hands. Both will help to restore moisture to your nails.
Biotin supplements has been shown to increase thickness, and thus the strength of nails by an average of 20%.
Use of gloves when your hands will be exposed to various household cleaners and/or water will also help to protect them. When your nails get wet, they swell up. And as they dry, they shrink. Over time, and with repeated exposure to water, your nails will become weak and brittl. Gloves will help to provent this from happening.
Some people will recommend the use of nail strengtheners, and its true that many work well - in the short term. But unfortunately, most have formaldehyde in them. Formaldehyde has a drying effect on nails, and will eventually cause them to become brittle and damaged. If you use any strengtheners and/or hardeners, make sure that formaldehyde is not listed as one of the ingredients.What can you use to help real nails heal after fake nail have been removed?
You can use nail enamel on it or better yet don't let it just the way it is until it heals
