Homemade nail strengthener?

When I remove the polish my nails always feel really brittle and rough afterwards. If anyone had any ideas about what I could use to strengthen and soften them as well that would be great. I need really simple ingredients.

I heard just drumming your fingernails on the table will strengthen them. Also keep your cuticles pushed back (gently)

Protein in your diet really helps. Ladies from the Far East have magnificent nails, I think it's because of all the fish in their diet. That could just be an old wives' tale, but I don't think so. There are several/many nail creams you can get most anywhere.

Try rubbing olive oil on them. And stay away from the polish for awhile. Also look for nail polish that does not contain formaldehyde. That is extremely drying for your nails.
