Oh what I would give to have nails like these!!!
Over the years I must have tried every product under the sun to get my nails to look like this. I don't want them to look like talons, I just want to have that lovely white fraction at the tip of my nail so I have have a French Polish.
I have a confession to make - I used to bite my nails!! Aarrrgh I know, it's a disgusting, dirty, filthy, horrible habit. I started as a child and I must have been about 18 when I stopped, by which time the damage had been done. It seriously weakens your nails and I believe they don't ever really recover, though I'm sure a manicurist would say differently.
I have, in desperation, had nail extensions. However, this has been when I am going away on holiday and after two weeks I have had to have the things taken off because either a couple have flipped off anyway or they are driving me mad. I want my own nails!
I have now discovered that by massaging Sweet Almond Oil, which is dirt cheap, into my cuticles every night my nails have grown. They are not hanging over the end of my fingers but I could have a French Polish now! I am wondering now just how long they will last before they split, chip and return to their former appearance, oh me of little faith.
Anyway for now I have nails to be proud of and I will be showing them off!
