Re: Beautiful nails

I trained in professional manicures and pedicures years ago , I still do them and have a few clients even now . In fact I look after their feet better than I look after my own . I have painted nails today , not always of course because if I'm doing a client my own nails get ruined . I have long fingernails which are very strong. I don't use gellish I believe it's bad for the nails as it is a plastic and the nails can't breath , I use OPI professional the old fashioned polish , it doesn't last like gellish on the hands but does last 6 or 7 weeks on the feet .

I do feel more feminine when my nails are painted Im wearing purple today.

Re: Beautiful nails

During holidays we do Gracies nails she likes a bit of nail art, crystals and pictures. We get her friends mum who does it professionally to do them for her, my shaky hands are no good for the tiny movements you need for that.

Re: Beautiful nails

I do my own nails about twice a week

They are never 100% perfect as they take a battering in work so there are often little bruises or fine splits. Right now my left thumb nail is extremely short as I managed to cut the nail in half down the middle a few weeks back

I find keeping them polished really helps protect them. I always use a base and top coat of Hard as Nails

I love blues and greens and really deep reds. Today I have a very pale pink which has a mother of pearl look about it so you can see blues and purples in it when the light catches them

I never have fake nails, just work with what I have

Re: Beautiful nails

I find cotton gloves under rubber gloves protects my nails better at work, the polish certainly lasts longer.

Re: Beautiful nails

A lot of nice posts on her, thanks

Would anyone be able to suggest to me, something that would make my nails in better shape? they split and they are so fragile.

I have verticle lines in my nails. I don't know why.

Mine are pretty bad as I said since I was ill I think the chemo harmed them, but I have started taking a vitamin course aimed at hair and nails, it was quite expensive I thought but Nathan insisted he would treat me, and I think 2 weeks into the course I can see a slight improvement. The new nail seems to not have as many ridges and I'm hoping that means less splits.
