Sometimes the condition of your nails can reveal how your general health is doing. For instance a deficiency in 'B' vitamins, e.g. Biotin can cause nails to be brittle.

Brittle nails will flake and split, and can break off causing discomfort.
Also over-washing hands using harsh detergents can dry nails out. Using household detergents and cleansers without protective gloves can irritate skin and nails, and deplete both of moisture.
