I was doing well, trying to let my nails grow out so I can let the acrylic grow off, and then things would be right as rain, right? Nope….was not so lucky. I went to get my lunch from the freezer when…….
Bloody hell…..that hurt!
I made a nice-sized crack across the acrylic on one of my nails, but the pain suggested a deeper problem. I was planning on soaking the rest off anyway, so I went to the store and got some maximum strength acetone remover and a file. As I was clicking my way to the aisle and gathering my supplies, some nit comes by with a Halloween cat decoration, and asks me if I want to pet his cat……wtf? Guess some in this town just can’t leave a bloke in nails and heels well enough alone – oh well, their loss.
So I got home and soaked/filed them off in short order, and found that I had actually torn my natrual nail back behind the quick on the side – not all the way across, but about a quarter way. I figure I’ll just keep them trimmed back until the split can be trimmed off, but dayum! That was PAINFUL! OW!!!!
