I'm having a tumultuous relationship with my nails. They've always been short due to them peeling, which leads me to pick at them and then they end up looking like monkey's have been chewing on them. See Exhibit A...
pretty bad...I know...let me explain. About a month ago I got the GRAND idea to put on fake fingernails. GASP!!! I don't do anything fake....fake cheese, fake chicken, fake boobies, fake hair.....not. me. ANYWAY....I first had tips with gel overlay put on. They looked OK for about 7 minutes then I noticed that they weren't filed down evenly across the nail bed. So I had them ripped off about a week later by someone else and had her put tips with silk wraps. Those looked super nice. I was pleased. Turns out I'm very hard on my nails with all the typing I do and those didn't last but a little over a week and they started to lift and get ridges across the tips and then the silk fibers would be exposed...it was a mess. So I ripped those off and called it a day. Now I'm left with nails that look like this. Sexy right?
3 days ago I started using Nailtiques Formula 2 Nail Protein. After my first application of said Formula 2 my nails were on FIRE!! Friends....let me give you a little heads up. Nailtiques has a formula for knuckle heads like myself that have just removed their fake nails called "After Artificial Treatment"...I trust you'll learn from my experience and go for the proper treatment post artificial nail removal. :)
I digress ... I'll keep you posted as to my nail restoration. Have any of you had bad nail experiences? Do tell!
