ASK Cosmetics’ “Ultimate Bare Naked Nail Challenge” Week 4 April 1, 2012

This is the end of week 4 of the 10 week series for the ASK Cosmetics’ “Ultimate Bare Naked Nail Challenge”. For information about why I started this and details of my nail conditions check out my “The Start” post.

I’ve been pretty sick for the last week and a half so I missed my week 3 post – all the posts that have been showing up (up to this one) were actually scheduled because I had a big spurt of energy two weeks ago.  Anyway I’ll stay on schedule for the rest of the challenge (I hope).  I think that some of my problems that I’ll be talking about are due to being sick – maybe Lisa will comment and let me know.  Check out below the break for my full update!

ASK Cosmetics’ “Ultimate Bare Naked Nail Challenge” The Start March 5, 2012

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.
