    I guess this is kind of a nutritional question. If your nails chip they may be brittle. This can have a number of causes. Maybe they are drying out a lot because it's wintertime. Maybe you are washing your hands a lot or soaking them in water and this is weakening them. There are lots of things that could be going on. Is there discoloration?

    You can help build up your nail strength by using a fortifying clear nail strengthener, and especially by making sure you eat enough protein and healthy oils. Vitamin E can help too. Eat your eggs and nuts and fish, if you can get it, especially salmon or sardines. Here's some more information.
