Q&A: Split Nail

Q. I have a split that runs from my cuticle to the tip of my nail. It's always there and the split opens more as the nail gets longer. Why won't it heal?

A. The matrix, the area on the finger where the nail is formed, suffered an injury at some point in time and was damaged in the process. The nail is now is formed with the split defect. It will not heal. Have your nail tech apply a nail wrap or an acrylic or gel overlay to cover the split and hold it together. You will always need keep the nail covered to hide the split and to keep the split together.
