I hope this works for you...and selfishly I want to hear about it if it does!  I never had trouble with my nails before either, but I do now.  Mine are splitting.  My fear is that this is age-related instead of weather.  I have been using Nailtiques Formula 2 but I'm not sure it is making much difference.

I have been battling a problem with my nails also.  They never grow very long and are weak.  I have a magnesium definchy so I am taking supplements when I remember.

I take magnesium every night.  You can have your level tested to see if you are getting enough.  I did that with my last blood work.

I know it's low.  When I had blood work done before my knee replacement the level was low.

Nailtiques 2 stopped my peeling nails.  But taking biotin turned my weak splitting nails that always had to be polished into strong unpeeling nails that no longer need polish to stay whole.  Have been keeping my nails polished for the last 25 years to prevent tears into the nail bed.  Now I can go days without polish if needed.  Highly recommend biotin.

I have used Nailtiques Formula 2 with some success. It is a protein treatment, inexpensive, and widely available at drugstores, Ulta, and sites like Amazon and Drugstore. I think I paid $5 for mine at Walgreens. You apply one coat per day until it starts peeling away...then you start over. It looks like clear polish.
