Hey Everyone,

Super quick post to address another FAQ! Answer: Yes they do! The thing is, because I take my manicure shots myself and I am right-handed, you only get to see my left hand every time. Which is good, because the nails that grow on my right hand are comical to say the least. First off, they crack and chip more often than their counterparts on the left, and my thumb, index and middle finger nails never grow as long as my ring and pinky's. I can't explain it, its the weirdest thing. Those three nails just hardly ever grow as long as the rest. So my nails, as any other thing in life are far, faaar, from perfect, but I love them all the same and you should do the same with your imperfections... No one's perfect.

Now! To the point of this post. Yes my nails break, and most times they tend to do this somewhere in the middle. Which is painful but, more so, ANNOYING. But, I had since found a way to deal with them, and I don't know why I am only just sharing this. What I do is, I get that nail wrapped.

Yup, you read that right.. Wrapped! I get them to use the acrylic powder and wrap that baby up until the break grows out and I can cut it right off. It saves it getting snagged in my clothes/hair causing it to peel away from my skin each time, which is extremely painful!

So, as you can see in the picture above. There is a break in the nail on my pinky (faint pink horizontal line running across, lean in closer to the picture and you'll see it) and that nail is wrapped in the picture. So that break grew out and I cut it off!

Just a little tip I thought to share with you guys. Hope it was helpful!

Have a great weekend!

    This info was really needed. Many times I just clip off and try to start the growth process again in hope that they will grow right and not break off...
