What Vitamin Are you lacking when you have brittle nails?
A deficiency in vitamin C can result in brittle nails, as well as slowed nail growth. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient and cannot be produced by your body. You may notice white spots or dots along with your nails if you’re deficient in certain minerals or vitamins. The deficiencies most linked to this issue are zinc deficiency and calcium deficiency. Your doctor will be able to determine if you are at risk for any mineral deficiency.

How to look after your nails, have healthy nails.
Remove nail polish thoroughly
Take half a bowl of lukewarm water, put half a lemon juice in it, put a teaspoon of shampoo in it and dip your fingers for 10 minutes. After that wash your hands in normal tap water. After that use the used lemon to rub on your fingernails for 2 to 3 minutes and then wash your hands.
Lemon cleanses the yellow colour from the nail and kills bacteria. Shampoo cleans the nails.
Take a toothbrush and clean your nails as well as your hands. Every time you wash your hands, use the toothbrush to wash your nails so that it does not contain any germs in nails especially if the nails are long. Wash your hands and wipe them with a clean towel.
Trim and file your nails. Take petroleum Jelly or any oil and massage each hand for 5 minutes. Wipe off excess petroleum jelly. Do this once a month.
Apply whatever nail polish you wish to.
