Let's start at the very beginning...

Hi everyone!  *waves while trying not to look sheepish*

I hope all of you are doing well.  This has been a crazy fall here in my real life, so I sincerely apologize for the lack of posting.  We went on vacation right after my last post, and then we all came down with a horrible chest cold that I am still battling today (I think we keep passing it around, but I think it's coming to an end... thank goodness).  Then my grandmother passed away at the beginning of November and now my daddy is in the hospital and will be having bypass surgery within the next few days.  *sigh*

Needless to say, my mind and heart really haven't been in blogging.  Plus, my "to review" box is getting getting fuller and fuller which has a tendency to shut me down, rather than lighting a fire under my slacker ass.  Plus, I had chopped my nails down to nubs a few weeks ago and they had just got back to the point where it wasn't a pain in the ass to paint them.  My plan was to get back to blogging soon and then I did a total dumbass thing and nicked my nail while trying to clip them.

So I figured I could either neglect this blog for another 2-3 weeks and get even further behind, or I could use it to see if I could take my nails from the short, misshapen, raggedy messes they are, to healthy nails within the next few weeks.  As a thank you for helping to promote their Facebook contest, Barielle sent me a package including several nail treatments, so I figured this was a good time to try them out.

Here is a picture I took about 15 minutes ago.

You can see the nick in my ring finger nail.  You can also see my raggedy ass cuticles.  LOL.  So, over the next few weeks, I'm going to try and repair my nails and cuticles and I'm showing you all the process. 

I used the nail cream last night before bed and today, I used the protein.  I will be sure to keep you updated on my progress.  

Products were sent to me by Barielle

I need some protein on my nails too. They are bad.

Sorry for everything you have been going through. I am glad you have found some inspiration to begin blogging again and I am looking forward to seeing your journey to fab nails!

I'm not a big fan of the clippers for exactly that reason; I could get distracted by something shiny and nick a nail easily. I just took my nails down quite a bit with a fine glass file and already they look much better. Mine have a tendency to peel so I'll be very curious about your experience with the treatment.

Just found your blog, I like this post because I like to see people with the same nail issues as me, I sometimes have to start at the beginning too because if life gets in the way I bite my nails :(

I had a real bad fungus on my nails that ate up my nails to where I had hardly any nail bed. My podiatrist suggested soaking my nails in apple cider vinegar for 15 minutes every night , I did it for about two months and I have healthy beautiful nails again . I don't think i will ever do any type of artificial nail again!
