Subject: RE: fingernail strengthening
Dave,
    Watch my lips!!! I play flamenco, which is a bit rough on the old nails, but I have never broken one on my guitars. my method is:-
1) apply a coat of protective basecoat to the bare nail.
2) two days later do it again.
3) lay thin fibre glass sheet over each nail and cover with superglue. ( sheets can be bought from model shops)
4) apply couple of coats of Boots topcoat nail varnish, to keep water away from the superglue.

ps do not cover the nail's cuticle.

You now have super hard nails that you could invade Poland with!
