I have found if I keep them painted with a clear polish I do not bite them! Don't the fake ones leave nasty ridges in the surface? I do not bite them terribly but it is enough to bother me...at least my daughter doesn't do it!

Me, too.

Mmm...no... They don't have to be too long. They can be even oval and perfectly natural-looking. The thing is they're thick and not yummy! I've had them on a couple of occasions. It's only hard buttoning buttons. Well, and typing takes a little getting used to. They do ruin your natural nails underneath, though (they become very soft and fragile and takes some time to get them back to normal), and after taking them off you might feel like biting again.

Yeah! Me 3!!!! I want nice nails!! This is a chat thread so *nothing* is off topic as long as it's PG-13.

Speaking of which; I made my 80 year old mom laugh when I called her Valentine's night. I finished my deliveries, cleaned up the studio, then fell in
a heap & had a nice long well-deserved nap. Woke up around 9-ish & remembered I still hadn't called Mom. She's 2 hours earlier, so I knew she'd still be up.

I remarked that I was really hungry but there was nothing in the house to eat. So go out she says. On Valentine's Day??!!
Right - nothin makes you feel like more of a loser than picking up take-out when everyone else is on a dinner date! I had to slink into the
grocers & actually give a hoot about some 16 yr old thinking I'm a loser.....WTF is wrong w/ me?

Sorry ladies...my son took over the comuter last night, next thing I know I wake up and it's 5 am and time to start my day...So now that my work is done I can post...yay !!!

Ok, for perfect fabulous nails, you need a special basecoat, I use Nailtiques formula 2, they have several formulas to chose from depending on the state of your nails, and for great cuticles, I use Creative Nail Cuticle Eraser w/ Solar Oil, which hydrates the nail bed, and AHA keep the cuticles in good shape. Also, make sure you apply a PH balancer before any polish. OPI Bondaid is really good.

So start with a mini manicure, 1) Soak nails in a warm bath . 2) Remove any cuticle that has grown onto the nail bed. 3) Apply cuticle eraser and massage into cuticles. 4) Clean the nail bed with water and a towel to remove any oil. 5) apply the PH balancer, then your nail treatment ( 2 coats), apply a coat every other day, for several days, once you get a build up (like 5 layers) of polish it's time to start over. This is what I use on my clients, and my own nails.

If you need anymore details just ask meh...

Thank you, dear! Too much work... Me likie shortcuts!

I recall reading about this Nailtiques. Have to try it. I've been using Sally Hansen's base coats. They're OK... but there might be something better out there.

I haven't been on here much now in months because I don't really have the time for it anymore. With businesses closing all around the country the buyout opportunities have been better than I've ever seen so I'm taking full advantage while the getting is good.
Its been fun people but for now at least I am covered up.
