Yes, those are my real nails. What you didn't know I had fake ones? Well, I did - for almost 4 years. It started because I was a serious nail biter. I bit my nails when I was nervous, when I was scared, when I was happy - for pretty much any reason. I was tired of being embarrassed of my hands and decided to get acrylics.Trust me, it was a last resort decision. Also, this was before shellac or gel, so this was really my only option.
Last weekend, when I went to get a new set put on I was blown away on how fragile and broken down my real nails looked. I was so used to acrylics that I never thought about how my real nails were being effected.
I had really done this to myself because I couldn't stop biting my nails?
Well, challenge accepted.
You may notice that I already have a chipped nail.
Real nails are really fragile. Also, they aren't as heavy, so I have to get used to how different it feels to type.
A few days in and I have't bitten my nails off. I think it's pretty safe to say that I won't be going back to acrylics. I'm looking forward to having fun with my real nails.
