My nail bed is flaking away from my fingernails?

If you have... Artificial nails, remove them. A common cause is damage from the adhesive applied to hold the acrylics. Then, keep your nails away from soap & water and harsh chemicals as much as possible (wear gloves). Take biotin (one of the b vitamins) 5000 units per day. Use nail polish, either one color coat or 2 clear coats. Be patient, it may take several weeks to bring your nails back to normal.
