Today we took out children ten pin bowling. We had never been before and it just didn't cross my mind that my nails would be at risk!

I have broken my thumb nail & damaged others. My nails are natural with a thin gel overlay to strengthen (or were!!) so I'm pretty upset.

I did love the bowling though so if anyone has any ideas on how to have nails and bowl I would love to know.

Hiya Ella,
I had a client just last week come in to have her whole right hand replaced after bowling .. you werent out together were you :)
I know its fun but, I dont think it is possible to keep your nails and bowl, unless you dont put your fingers in the holes - and even then ...
I think to go bowling you would need to keep them fairly short or have to put up with lots more breaks and very sore fingers!

I have had similar problems - but have found that if I only use a bowling ball with large holes - i.e bigger than I would normally choose - they don't break.

hope this helps.

Try doing fiber glass. I've had clients that use to bowl in teams. I used fiber glass and it worked. Mr.J

Hi,

I had the same problem when I had natural nails and I found that before you leave home put some plasters on your fingers on your bowling hand. This certained worked out fine for me!

I can`t see how this would work in favour of nails any better than any other system. They all have their inbuilt strength but overall I wouldn`t have thought fiberglass to be stronger than L&P.
