Anyone? Lol I am so so sorry but if a 5 mincuticle cleaning will help then it’s worth itHi I am a huge pain. I didn’t pick but man is it peeling after showers. Would a manicurist be able to tidy it up so it grows in more regularly? I know she can’t make the skin grow back, I’m debating whether I should just bit the bullet because it’s so hard not to play with it. If not, maybe I got to use bandaids lol
Thanks so much. I know it’s silly to be so preoccupied with them considering I’m sure you all have seen much much worse. But they look as good as they do due to all the advice. When quarantine started during first wave it was so bad I literally yanked my fingernails out deep deep deep into the nail bed. I wish I had pics to show you. It was so bad, so I have gone quite the way.You have a lovely hand and fingernails. If you can’t keep yourself from fiddling with the skin, maybe try white cotton gloves. They come in a pack of several at the drugstore. Pretend you are a hand model and need to keep them safe.
If you HAVE to nip and clip, be sure to have extra sharp nippers. A dull pair will make you pull instead of slice. I use NGHIA brand. D-01 or 04, ultra sharp 14 jaw (according to how they size full, half, quarter, etc. jaw). They are available online, of course.
Thank you so much. This really means a lot. Looking at the pictures before and after really show my progress thanks to every one of you guys.Hey, you’re hired! They look very nice. Don’t forget to add a swipe of polish and top coat along the free edge. Maybe make the polish last a little longer.
They look so nice now. And thanks for looking back at the original pics of ‘after acrylic removal’ damage. Boy, that kind of acrylic is impossible to soak off and so hard to file off. It only takes once to cure one from going down that road again. Proud of you.
