It’s normal, but still definitely not ideal. Luckily, you don’t have to live with your brittle, cracking nails and you also don’t have to give up your nail art addiction to keep them healthy. According to PopSugar, YouTuber Ela Gale has shared a fantastic and, more importantly, easy DIY hack that will save your nails.
Ela’s hack is a three-ingredient nail soak made from things you probably have in your house right now.
Here’s a before and after shot of Ela’s nails, just in case you need more motivation to try this.

There are two stages to the process. In stage one, mix 1/2 cup orange juice with 1 clove crushed garlic and let your fingers (specifically your nails, obviously) sit in the mixture for 15 minutes. In stage two, pour 1/4 cup of olive oil into a separate bowl and sit your fingers in that for 10 minutes.
It sounds a little weird, sure, but you can’t argue with the results. Watch Ela’s video for yourself below:
