Thank Heaven mine don't look like these!! Please tell me how this woman takes a shower and actually washes anything? I'll bet she has to go to a hair salon for every shampoo, and how would she ever zip a zipper or button a button?
Mine are more like this photo, minus the diamonds, of course. I had them done about 3 weeks ago. My nails have never been strong, despite daily vitamins. Since my hands are in water frequently, my nails break easily. If I try to wear polish, my nails split horizontally. I have always wanted pretty nails and the only way I'll ever accomplish that is to have them applied at a salon. If I had known then what I know now, I might have been a little longer in making the decision to get them, because.....
Have you ever tried to type with long nails? I have previously told you about my bouts with adult-onset dyslexia, which causes words to be typed backwards or letters transposed. I spend all my time correcting typing errors and the dyslexic words anyway - and now I have added to the mix all the letters I type accidentally because my nails are so long. When I had them done, I told the woman not to make them much longer than the tips of my fingers, but they were a little longer than that and now that they have grown out for 3 weeks, they are too long for me to be able to type anything with no mistakes. It takes much longer to type a post now, so I might not be posting as often in the future.....LOL
