What about make them thicker?
Nail plate shape is genetic. so look at your parents and grandparents nails. If they have the same type of nail, then there is nothing you can do to change things. If none of your fmaily have the same type of nail, then it culd be from some internal disorder and you may want to ask your doctor. You can always opt for artificial nail enhancements.
