It’s been quite a while since I posted an update to what I’ve been dubbing my “Nail Odyssey,” and I’ve made so much progress. The last one I did was 16 days in, and it is now Day 65. I actually had to count out the days, because it’s gotten to the point where I’m not going day by day anymore. Here are my thoughts from the last 6 weeks! Ending with a comparison photo of where I was then… to where I am now.
Before I show you my nails, a quick request: Read this post first.
All caught up? Good. Now, a few weeks back (Sunday, January 18th to be precise) a friend talked me into getting a manicure with her. At first I was reluctant. I’ve never had a manicure before, and I was nervous about it because I didn’t know what to expect. Also, since my nails are so short, I wasn’t sure if a manicurist would even be able to do anything with them. Finally I caved in since I figured that a manicure would be a good way to start off my “no-biting” mission on the right foot.
I have a confession to make: I’ve been hiding my nails from you. In every single photo I’ve posted to this blog in the past year, I have held products in such a way that my fingertips aren’t visible. I’ve used bizarre camera angles, the cropping tool, and even cloth to prevent my fingernails from being visible anywhere. I’ve even avoided writing certain types of posts because it would have required showing my fingertips.
