Nail repair

I find that when my nails get longer - particularly the thumbs - I often get a horizontal tear down in the nail bed, where the nail starts to break away, and which means that eventually I'll have to cut that nail really short. I keep my nails fairly oval in shape, a sort of oval-ed off square if you know what I mean, so I'm doing my best not to weaken the sides of the nails by filing down too low.
Any tips on fixing a tear in the nail? It's so frustrating having to cut one right *off* to nothing, and still have an unsightly tear in the nail. I don't wear them extremely long.

Check out the Sally Hansen's section in your local drugstore. They usually have something for tears that is fairly easy to use. My thumbs do the same exact thing.
I forgot all about Sally Hansen! I haven't seen "her" for a while but I'm sure the line is still available. It always came very highly recommended.
Sally Hansen rocks!!! (espc. the nail hardener)
