Girls Write Out
Wednesday, August 12, 2009

I have the worst nails in the world. Always have had. They are paper thin. So thin that they tear rather than break. And yes, as disgusting as it sounds, I have been known to bite my nails a time or two (please don't tell anyone I said that).

Here's another thing. I have to be very careful of what I put on them because if it's too strong, it will cause my nail to slowly lift from the nailbed. Weird, huh? I had acrylic nails applied once for my daughter's wedding and they hurt so bad (I could feel my pulse in my fingertips), that I took them off that night.  I'll probably never have beautiful nails, but it would be nice not to hide them in public.

So do you have any advice for me? What do you do for the health of your nails? I'm open to any and all suggestions!

Two words. Or two words and one letter. Vitamin B. I found this out by drinking Rockstar Sugarfree which I'm now addicted to. It has the B vitamins. Nails used to be weak and now they grow long and strong. Go figure.

My mom used to have thin nails that ripped and she could never get them long. She used the Nailtiques line of nail polish and has nails that naturally look like she has a french manicure. She has to apply it faithfully, but it really did work for her. Good luck!

What type of drink is Rockstar Sugarfree, Denise? Where can I find it?

I'll check out that nail polish, Heather. Thanks!

I have thin nails also and they tear very easy, they can't get out before they start to tear, don't know what to do about it.

No advice, but thanks for me finally knowing why I have lost my toenail 3 times -- too strong of polish! lol Another mystery solved.
