Do you know of any effective natural or home remedies for brittle nails?

In brief: Biotin

Biotin (available at many pharmacies and most health food stores) will strengthen nails; about 5000 units/day should do it.
Also, nail polish will protect your nails and helps prevent a recurrence of the brittle condition. Avoiding excessive contact with soap and water, and harsh chemicals, helps too.
