Just read this in the Dermatology Blog and I thought I'd share:

OK, ladies, be honest, how many of you have spent $10, $20 or more on a biotin-enriched nail polish that promised stronger, longer nails? From now on, save your money. Even if that nail polish is packed with biotin, the cells in your fingernails can’t absorb it.

Feed your cells biotin by feeding yourself biotin. Biotin is a B-complex vitamin that’s essential for cell growth. Good food sources for biotin include egg yolks, salmon, liver, nuts, Swiss chard, cauliflower, and avocados.

Well I'm nuts *cough* I mean I eat nuts so mine should be ok.

All joking aside, that's actually interesting. Nothing like being sold an ineffective product...
