Over the 4th of July weekend, Zoya had a special going on so I jumped on it. Last weekend, I did something I haven’t done in a really long time. I painted my own toe nails! This is a first in two major ways.
The first being that before starting the challenge, there was no way I would have brought attention to my toes; not in the state they were in! The second is this is the first time I was able to reach my toes to paint them! I’ve lost 200+ pounds and I can now reach my toes without having to overextend/hurt my back! YAY! So you can bet the first color I reached for was my new awesome red nail polish! 😀
Even though it seems the split is occurring, the nail itself seems to be a bit stronger and I have yet to deal with it breaking off. I am keeping it trimmed down though so between the two, I am thinking I won’t have the issues I had before. The nails are not breaking off anywhere as easily as they used to and I am not dealing with any flaking either. Major win!
My fingernails are also continue to blow me away. They are all pretty strong and growing in nicely. I have to clip and file them down much more often these days and something else I have noticed recently, they are not getting as flexible as they used to when I go swimming or even taking a shower.
I have yet to paint them mostly because I am getting ready for a camping trip and I don’t want to deal with scuffed/scratched nail polish on my fingers so I will wait to beautify them when I get back.
In the meantime, yay for beautiful hands and feet! Thanks to Lisa and ASK Cosmetics!
