July Daily Snap Day 24: Nails

Wednesday, 24 July 2013

I have a confession to make....I'm a nail biter.  I'm going to blame my dad for passing on this delightful trait.  About a year ago I kicked the habit and grew my nails for about a month - my mum was so excited she bought me a load of nail polishes which are unfortunately now languishing in a drawer as I fell off the wagon a few weeks later.  

As I mentioned yesterday, I'm going to a wedding next week and I've decided that my little stumpy nails aren't going to cut it so I'm making a last ditched attempt to grow them before next Friday.  Tonight I've been painting on a "help your nails grow faster" type lotion (I've peeled the label off so can't actually remember what it's called) - I did that last time and it helped stop me biting as it leaves your nails nice and glossy which puts me off sticking them in my mouth.  

Fingers crossed it works as I really want to paint my nails to match my outfit and have proper "girl" nails for once!

  1. Good plan! I used to be a bit of a nail biter too, but it was mostly down to really brittle nails. And hey- if it doesn't work in time for the wedding, Broadway Falsies are pretty bloody good as a substitute ;-) xx

  2. i have a review on duri rejuvacoat which works a treat to strengthen your nails and grow them out, you can buy it on ebay for around £9 hope it goes well for you xx
