Nails and Me.

I go in stages. Sometimes I will bite my nails down to nubs and it takes me going to the nail salon every other week for a couple months to get them to grow back. For some reason if I pay for someone to do my nails, I will not bite them for an entire week. And then the week after I slowly chip them off and then I run to the nail salon again so that I can get them done before I start to bite them… Again. I know it’s gross, but I don’t even think about it till my hand is in my mouth already…

After doing that for a couple months I kind of train myself to stop biting. But if I don’t have money in those couple months and my nails chip and then the corner gets rough, then I’ll start picking and it’s all downhill from there. I have tried to paint my nails at home but I pick it all off in 2 days. I think I have a problem. Haha.

Anyway, my nails have FINALLY grown out to a nice length and I am determined to keep them for a while! I always get so confused when the nail tech asks me what shape I want. I have always had them squared.

But I am thinking about maybe trying a new shape. There are so many out there! What shape do you pick? I may just keep it squarish.

Right now I am Square with round corners… Maybe I’ll go squoval? Or Oval? I don’t know… Maybe I’ll just keep the same shape.  What nail shape do you have/ prefer?

  1. I take better care of my nails if I get them done too. I dont bite mine but they do slowly chip away lol and I always go for round cause I like short nails. But I want square ones with rounded corners but my nails are never long enough 😭

  2. I’m a fiend for biting my nails too. I also have a horrible habit of picking and biting the skin around my nails too.
    I’d love to have almond shaped nails, but I’m nearly 27 and I don’t think I’ll ever stop.
    Good on you for your persistence.

  3. I have a bad habit of picking at my nails and the skin around it. I find that putting polish on them help with me to not pick, but the second I have a chip I just have to finish picking all the nail polish off. My favorite is the square with round corners.

  4. I am better than I used to be about biting my nails and cuticles. When I was a kid it was a bad habit. Now I don’t really do it unless I am really stressed and I don’t realize that I am doing it or if I break a nail and don’t have a file handy.
    I prefer the round or oval shape.
    I don’t understand how some people can do normal everyday tasks with extremely long nails. How do you take out contact lenses, hold a pen, cook, or take care of a baby? It doesn’t seem very practical.
