Fingernail fungus can destroy the beauty of your nails completely. There are a number of remedies for this fungus, some of which are made from natural ingredients and you can  try and make at home. The best thing to use for nail fungus is Lamisil cream or Lamisil Tablets which are marketed by Novartis. You can also use Penlac Nail Lacquer that has no side effects. You can also make use of home remedies like Vicks Vaporub, Apple Cider Vinegar or Hydrogen peroxide. Here is the link for more details:

There is also an over the counter product called Fungi nail. You have to lightly file the tops of your nails before applying it so that the solution will soak into the nail. I haven't tried the Lamisil tablets but have heard that they work well.

I recommend 100% tea tree oil, applied to the underside of the cut edge of your fingernail with a 'cotton bud'. Since it is your fingernail, you will need to be careful not to put your fingers to your eyes or mouth after applying the oil.

There should be no harm in doing this daily, but three times a week will work, until the fungus-affected part of the nail has grown out.

This was an inexpensive and successful remedy for me after two purchases of very expensive pharmaceutical preparations failed.

Apparently wearing acrylic nails is the root cause of your nail fungal infection. I suggest that you steer clear from using acrylic nails and instead allow your nails to breath. It will also be helpful if you apply tea tree oil regularly on your infected nails to prevent the fungi from spreading. You can also purchase an otc anti-fungal product for nail fungus such as Fungusil. You can use it along with tea tree oil as it will help make it more potent in eliminating the fungi living in your nail bed. Of course, do not forget to practice good hand hygiene. As always, cleanliness is the key to properly address nail fungus.
