Despite having bitten my nails till they bled until I was 15,my nails ended up being extremely long and strong!.My mother had the most elegant hands and nails so I do believe I have her to thank for my own. It was only in the last few years that my hands and nails took a downward spiral thanks to a severe arthritic disease.Now I cannot even wear any jewellery or nail polish,but at least I can tap out a reply to these questions!
Mine are short but neatly so...I don't bite them and never have. I find keeping pale polish and then a hard coat over the top on them protects them and they are quite strong luckily. For a few years I had false nails as my hands are on show in my job in the public eye, however now I just do them myself which is good enough.
I try to keep my nails short but they are extremely strong and grow very quickly, so it takes a long time to cut them and they are long again within a couple of days! It's quite annoying. I have better things to do with my time than constantly cutting nails.... it's genetic though, and connected to having strong teeth which I am pleased about so I can't complain too much :)
My nails don't grow like they used to. They split and chip which is frustrating. I used to have beautiful long, strong nails that I could wear nail polish on but now I just use clear nail polish. Would love to have nice nails again!
I've suffered with short, weak, flaking nails for years. I have other health issues as well. My Doctor put me on to hair, skin& nails supliment. I've now got nails like steel. Improving my psoriasis, and hair.
Hi finny, 10 days ago I had serious spinal surgery. Normally my psoriasis would be quite flaired at this time. Its the best it been for more than a decade. I've been taking the supliment brand of natures bounty.Doctor put me on to iherb they have great supliment, reasonably priced.
kayea -I had a bad accident some years ago and was in hospital about 4 weeks -on pethidene or similar -oxycntin all the time -my psoriasis disappeared completely for many months -assumed it was the pain killers.
Very long, very strong. Something happened when I was about 17 and they went rock-hard. I get them (and good teeth & hair) from my Dad's side. My Mum hates me 'cos hers are thin and horrible! Thanks Dad!
