Good Afternoon Terre!!!!
All is well here in Pittsburgh today. It is sprinkling rain here today. I watched the weather this morning and it said possible thunderstorms, but so far nothing.
I can't wait to see your Halloween nails! Sorry to hear about your stomach bug. Remember I had it not too long ago? I don't wish that on anyone!!! Are you feeling better now?
I'm a little disappointed with my nails. I have had brittle splitting nails for the last few years. Recent posts advised my as to how to care for my nails. I followed instructions and indeed, my nails did improve. All except one, my wedding finger. No matter what I did, this nail would split terribly starting at the point where the nail just begins to grow past the finger tip.
So in a panic, I had this nail repaired with an acrylic treatment. I really don't like doing this as I have to keep getting a fill. I'll do whatever it takes to maintain strong beautiful nails but I am at a loss of what to try next. Any ideas ladies?
Do you use gloves anytime your nails are in water (besides showering)? That will help. I can't suggest anything further other than keeping your nails painted or using a clear topcoat. Water is very drying to our nails and plus aging is another factor for dry and splitting nails. Do you have acrylics or natural nails?
My mother has this same issue with one finger and it happens to be one of her ring fingers.
