  1. Thanks for the article, but there is one thing that was not mentioned. At times my nails, how do I put this, unlayer themselves. When this happens, I can actually peel off the top layer of the nail(though only up to a certain point, never has it unlayered anywhere near the cuticles. And it doesn’t happen all the time. Sometimes I cut my nails and let them grow out, they unlayer. Then the next time, my nails grow strong, long and beautiful.

    What would cause that?

    I’m 72. My nails developed terrible ridges until I started taking hair, skin, and nail vitamins. They contain vitamin E & biotin.
