It sounds more like hang nails to me than an actual separation of the nail plate into two portions. Hang nails don't grow like the nail plate does. You can soften them with lotions and try to clip them off as close to the side of the nail as possible. I would suggest using a good quality nail and cuticle oil to help keep the area conditioned; Botanical Oil is good and is availalbe in the nail department of Sally Beauty Supply. Also, using a "cuticle remover' product will help to get rid of them as well.
