A quick update on my quest for long nails.
So far so good. Cheryl, thank you for your suggestion about the acrylic nails. I’ve tried them before, and I love how they look–always a great motivator. And you’re right, amazing how much your own nails have grown under them. Here’s the problem I’ve found–when I take them off my real nails are very soft, and therefore prone to splitting and breaking. Plus, since I’m not used to having long nails, I’m forever breaking them off. I was going to get some and start that way, but this time I’ve decided to go “all-natural”. There comes a time in a girl’s life when you’ve just got to bite the bullet and have the will-power to stop. Hopefully, this is that time!
So it’s been a few days now, and I haven’t chewed any off (that even sounds disgusting!). I bought something called “Iron Shield”, which seems to be helping. Plus, it makes them shine, and I love that!
Thank you all for your encouragement and suggestions! Hopefully this will be the time that I finally succeed!
