Stop Peeling Nails

Formula X Sheer Strength is the ideal polish for when you want a light wash of pretty color with the added benefit of nails that don’t split, chip, break or crack. Rich in vitamins, botanical extracts, keratin and hydrators, the 10 “tints,” as they are referred to, contain a proprietary luminizing ingredient so your nails look that much shinier. $13, sephora.com

Doesn't Cause Damage

RGB x Hipp Liquid Buff was developed as a way to give the look of just-buffed nails. It leaves nails sheer, pretty and less likely to split or break due to the biotin- and vitamin E–rich formula. $20, rgbcosmetics.com

Enhance Your Color

Different from your standard polish, ultrasheer Dior Nail Glow makes the natural color of your nails brighter and whiter with a single coat. Wear it alone or layer polish on top—the pink color of the product is adaptable to every single skin tone, so it is universally flattering. $27, dior.com

Infused With Vitamins

Delivering long-lasting color—up to two weeks—because it forms a molecular bond with the base coat, Londontown Lakur Enhanced Colour prevents chipping and cracking, while leaving behind a pretty coat of color. $16, londontownusa.com

No Touch-Ups Needed

New from Jessica Cosmetics comes its Phēnom Vivid Colour polish, which gives nails a gel-like finish that lasts for up to 10 days without the need for touch-ups. It also cures with natural light (no lamp necessary) and doesn’t need to be soaked off, making it safer for nails. $11, jessicacosmetics.com

Make Your Nails Healthy

When two podiatrists couldn’t find a polish to hide unsightly nails while treating them, they decided to make their own. Dr.’s Remedy Enriched Nail Lacquer contains naturally occurring antifungal and antibacterial ingredients including garlic bulb extract, tea tree oil and lavender for stronger, whiter-looking nails. $17, remedynails.com

Steeped in Science

Boasting an advanced polymer that was originally used for contact lenses, Inglot O2M Breathable Nail Enamel is unique in that it allows oxygen and water to pass through the nails, meaning they are less likely to become dehydrated and break or peel. $15, inglotusa.com

Get Harder, Stronger Nails

John Russo Nail Lacquer is a 5-free formula that contains horsetail extract to harden and strengthen weak nails. Each of the 34 shades, which range from pales and pastels to bold brights and classic hues, holds the promise of not chipping for at least seven days. $18, johnrussobeauty.com
