Getting Nailed

Those who know me in real life know that I am a nail biter. Total nail biter. Have been doing it as long as I can remember. There have been times (usually when taking prenatal vitamins) that my nails might start to get long, but by weeks end they are short again thanks to my teeth. Not now though.


Well la-di-da. Look at those babies. Maybe I should have freshly polished them before taking the picture. My right hand also has long nails, but not quite as long. I guess that hand grows slower??
I cut them (with clippers, not with teeth) shortly after taking this picture, they were making it hard to type.

10 people are laughing with me:

oh, you so need some french manicure tips on those babies!!! i'd be soooo proud, if i were you. i sit here typing with ugly stubs. i was going to get my nails done for that quincinera but i never had a chance. and acrylic nails are so not conducive to good floor and tub scrubbing!

i can empathize with you. i used to get thrilled to death to see a teeny tiny bit of white... Ha!

It's nice to break that habit. It's been about 6yrs for moi.

keep it up lady!

Mine are short. I don't bite, just clip. All the time. Are you right-handed? That's why the nails are shorter. They don't grow shorter, you just use that hand more so they are naturally worn down.

RT from MSP to SEA $118 baby!!!!!

It's crazy seeing you with nails! Nice control.

How did you stop? Lovely! Were you also playing scrabble with me at the time you took the picture? I see the dreaded keyboard!

That is awsome. Good job

Amy Caroline said...

Awesome! It is so hard to kick little habits like those, isn't it? They become just second nature! I was going to say you could always get fake nails... that would keep you from biting them! But then the expense is not so cool!

Did you get braces or something? HOW did you DO THAT? I would take a picture of my gross fingers but I wouldn't want to make you barf. I've been reading a LOT lately.

So ... are you taking prenatal vitamins, then? Everyone else is. ;)
