What To Do About Dry, Split, Weak Nails?

What To Do About Dry, Split, Weak Nails?

Are your nails dry, split, or weak?

This time of year, more than ever, I hear complaints about how the weather affects a woman's hands and nails. Dry skin and split, weak nails, seem to be worse in the fall and winter months. Cold weather, running the heat in our homes, windy conditions all contribute to those nasty little cracks around your nails in the cuticle area.

What causes split, weak nails?

Repetitive hand washing and drying cause nails to split and peel. Nails swell in water and become soft. Make sure your nails are thoroughly dry after washing, and wear gloves when doing dishes or gardening to protect your nails and cuticles.

Another cause of weak nails that split is improper removal of nail enhancements such as gel, acrylic, and even nail polish. Picking off polish thats been on a while takes some of your own nail with it, causing the nail to become weaker each time polish is not removed properly.

After hand washing and/or removing nail enhancements it's important to restore your nails with the right nail creams/oils too. Look for nail strengthening products that reinforce and protect your nails.

Our customer testimonials


Adriana J. reviews Shea Brulee Hand & Cuticle Creme

"My second Winter using this cuticle cream. Can't live without it. Big difference in terrible splitting I get around my cuticles this time of year. Completely gone."

Sara H. Testimony 

"The Shea Brulee is the perfect solution to my dry and cracked hands/cuticles. In just a few days of use, they have completely changed to being smooth and soft!"

Jane M. Testimony

Best Nail Product! 

"This is the best product and I don't know why it is not advertised more. I was introduced to it at a nail salon and it brought my nails back from total destruction. But I changed jobs and stopped using it when I went to another salon. However, I was not happy with the products I found so I went on line and purchased it again. In 2 weeks my nails are 100% better and my manicure lasts a full week now, a first for me. I use it as a base coat, then apply it as a top coat every other day. Amazing!"

"After trying many products my nails still broke, split in layers, and cracked from tip toward cuticle. My thumb nails were the worst. A friend gave me a bottle of Nail Fitness and it worked. I've used it for several years and when I go for a while without using it, the old problems return. Using Nail Fitness works for me--it gives me healthy nails. I truly recommend it heartily."

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
