Keeping them properly polished with multiple coats will go a long way in protecting them from peeling, ripping, etc. If you are looking for a clear alternative, I was very pleased with the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength line. They have a hardener, base and top coat and polishes. Since they are readily available in most places it's a good first try. When you get your polish how you want it you can add a top coat every other day.
I wouldn't change your polish more than twice a week as removers weaken your nails. I usually remove, wash, moisturize and then after it has had time to absorb, wash again and re-polish.
It will take awhile for your nails to restore themselves but stopping the tearing and peeling will make it possible to grow them.

Thanks for the advice folks! I started using it today and the bottles (2 in a pack - base coat and hardener) state a result will be seen in 10 days. I'll keep you posted!

The only nail polish I will buy now is Butter London Horse Power, contains horse tail it's said to be really good for bones and nails and works really good, cost about 20 bucks but worth it. I also take a hair skin and vitamin everyday, also with a collegen/liquid every night. You can't expect to get healthy nails from a clear coat alone. Biotin, horsetail, and a number of other things is in my everyday dose, www.puritanspride.com they have the best prices for good things for you body.

Take a multivitamin, it can't hurt. I take skin,hair,and nails by puritans pride, my hair has grown almost and inch in less than two months. And butter london horsepower is the best out there, it has no formaldahyde or yucky thing that can eat your nails off and it really works

Nail magic has formaldhyde in it, it doesn't do much for living nails. Products out there always have that stuff in it, nail magic never stayed on my nails and no results to talk about. But butter london horse power is the only thing I'll buy.

Try butter london horsepower, it has a herb in it called horse tail, and stays on, I'll only use this for now on. This one has no formaldahyde in it.

This is the best advise! Without the body having the raw materials it needs to build this tissue the other solutions (those applied to the nails) will eventually fail. Society today has compromised it's health from eating over processed, chemical laden foods and many which are depleted of their nutrients. Eating a nutrient dense diet can do the most for nails, hair and skin. That is lots of raw fruits and veggies and raw nuts and seeds. These areas of the body (skin, nails, hair) will show the effects first when there is a deficiency of some kind. The nails (skin, hair) are made by the body so keep it clean and give it what it needs to do it's best job. Supplementing with the nail hardeners at the same time can assist until the body is refortified but eventually you will not need to rely on these things so heavily. Someone else recommended horsetail tea, also good advice and you may also want to try, Alfalfa and Nettle teas. Very pleasant and mild tasting.
