HNT-A Radical Cure

nails

Yes, this is a very boring, not at all artistic picture. But it amuses me, so deal with it. Check those long fingernails. There's a whole hand full of them. I have been a lifelong nailbiter. As a kid, I always gnawed my nails to the quick. As an adult, I sort of go through cycles. Sometimes they grow, sometimes I bite them. Even when they grow, there's almost always a broken one because they are thin and brittle. Not being able to use my left hand or get it to my mouth for 7 weeks has resulted in a full hand of long nails. Quite bizarre. Whaddya think, should I let them grow long enough to challenge those swami guys in the Guinness Book of World Records? My right hand is as shabby looking as ever. Maybe I'll tell people I'm a left handed classical guitarist, hahahaha.
As a bonus you can see one of my 5 new scars there on my wrist. That's one of 2 where I had ligaments and tendons repaired.

Happy HNT!

I recently (well a few months ago) quite bitting mine too...just to see if I could,,,and they seem to be getting stronger and stronger as time goes on.
Happy non-bitting HNT!

AlwaysArousedGirl said...

Ack, it would take a cast for me to stop biting mine, too.

Glad you are out of your cast.

Nice. I just recently stopped biting my nails.... it's liberating.

Addict said...

I din't even notice the scars till you mentioned them... I was admiring the beautiful nails!

60 and counting said...

Used to chew mine off nearly to my elbows for about 30 years. Someone said something to me one day and I just quit.
Many years later and the damn things grow too fast.
It seems like I have to trim them every couple of hours.
Always being told they are too long for a bloke to have.

Suze said...

I keep trying to grow mine, like you they are brittle and break at the bottom. Maybe we should just give in and have false ones.

Happy HNT sweetie ;)

robmcj said...

Sorry you had to go through getting those scars. But you don't sound like a damaged person. "Waste chocolate", haha, a contradiction in terms. HHNT.

lily said...

wow, some nails. I hope your hand is back to normal soon!

Happy HNT!

Professor Fate said...

Fred said...

Scars and fingernails. Who could ask for a better HNT?

Logophile said...

No scars and swami nails!
Bad combo
ACK
Looking good right now though!

Seamus said...

Heh, heh, heh! Another mm and they'll officially be TALONS! HHNT!

Foxglove said...

As a fellow semi-recovered nailbiter, I say HUZZAH! Good job. Long and twisty bad idea. I always wondered how those women with reallllly long Jersey nails (I'm from there so I can rag on them) did basic things like brush their hair out of their eyes or you know, wipe? without injuring themselves...

As for the scars- may I ask what exactly you had repaired? cause I've got a mean case (recurring) of DeQuervain's and it interferes with work and my new hobby, which is punching the hell out of a 70lb heavy bag. (Really satisfying!)

HHNT!

Crimson said...

Anytime mine finally get long, I either bite them or break them. HHNT ;)

Schadeboy said...

I could never stand for my nails to be that long. I've never been a nail biter, and thusly I have nails strong enough to lift Ford F-150 pickups. But I absolutely hate it when they get much longer than say, 1/8 of an inche beyond the finger they're on. I'm a nail trimming machine, some dsys!

Happy HNT!

The only time that I ever had really nice nails was when I was pregnant and taking those horse-sized vitamins. It must've had more to do with being pregnant than with the vitamins 'cause I take horse vitamins now too and my nails are so short that I can hardly scratch an itch effectively. I'm so jealous Limey!

SCH said...

Ouch on having to have the surgery. You should keep the nails long enough to be pretty, but short enough to be able to wipe! Happy HNT!

BlackGirl said...

i used to bite my fingers too!
but in my case, i always end up having toncilitis...hehe.

HHNT!

Fame said...

Holy shit look at the nails. Darling they look great but if your like me they will be gone in a week. So glad your arm is healing! Super Duper! HHNT!

Moosekahl said...

The scar is great because it comes with a sweet story. As for the nails, I think you should treat yourself to a manicure :) Happy HNT

BTExpress said...

Hmmmmmmm...so you're saying I may need major surgery to attain long nails? Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy them?

They do look beautiful, and the hand looks great!

HHNT!
