Today will be the beginning of a 10 week series for the ASK Cosmetics’ “Ultimate Bare Naked Nail Challenge” I have crappy nails. I always have – and my habits have never really helped with that. I play with my classic car working to restore it, I use my nails to pry open things like Soda cans and to peel things like tape on a box. I paint my nails constantly – partially because I LOVE painting them – and partially to hide my nails. I have always had easy to chip nails.
As a child I would see my mom’s nails – the vision of perfection – long and strong and quick-growing – and then my own, always with grime under them, short, crooked, ugly. And that is how my nails have been my whole life. Naturally when I saw on a blog I follow (neverenoughnails) that a challenge was coming up where I could potentially get the nails I have wanted my whole life I pounced.
If you do not like seeing photos of nails in horrible shape do not click on the break – these nails are in BAD shape.
