Nail Rehab: A Confession
Hello, my lovelies! I'm sure you've been wondering why there's been a lack of swatches lately. Well, here's why.
I have a confession to make. Since 2009, I've had gel nails. I knew they weren't great for my nails when I got them, but I'm a person that likes to work with her hands and breaks her nails frequently.
But paying $40 every two and a half weeks for a fill and not being able to swatch when they'd grown out just too much was starting to bother me. So I took the leap and had them taken off.
Now, my nails are exceptionally brittle from the years of damage. But I'm working to strengthen and rehabilitate my nails.
I'm sure a lot of you have gone through this, are going through this, are considering going through this, or just will. So I figured that I'd document my journey through what I'm not-so-affectionately calling Nail Rehab.
I'll be starting with a before picture in another few days, along with my current rehab regimen. I promise, nothing will be gross. There aren't any infections or cuts or anything. Just very short, brittle nails that I'm working to strengthen.
Hope this is something that you'll all find informative and helpful to you!
