About two weeks almost quit ....

It's been about two weeks and I see a lil bit of an improvement , I am so tempted to try and do my nails again . I have been researching how to do acrylic nails and researching which are better , acrylics , quick dip acrylics or gels . I know it takes a while for nails to grow back , from my research it's about six months . Although I am hoping that the nail magic and sally Hansen nail growth formula help speed this up a bit .

I also hope that the prenatal vitamins that I now have to take help too. Yup my fellow followers I'm pregnant !!! Just found out on Friday that I am about 5 weeks pregnant . I have to make my appointment to confirm it and start the process . I am excited !!!

Almost one week

It's been almost a week, I just changed the polish last night and believe it or not I see an improvement , where there was once no nail a nail is starting to form . My nails are really starting to look better than before .

I think this time around may actually be successful.

Gonna try one more time .

I was inspired once again by the progress of nail growth for a Polish problem . She was very helpful and directed me towards my favorite store Sally's Beauty Supply.
I checked on line first and after reading 36 positive reviews for this product I decided to give it a try . Lets see what happens !
It looks pink , but it goes on clear and forms a protective shield over your nails . I am way too ashamed to show you pics of my naked nails . I will describe them to you instead . My left hand is pretty much okay . My middle finer and pointed finger are missing half of it's nail only.... I have noticed some growth though. My right hand is the problem hand . All nails except my pinkie have no nail bed. There is a very very thin and flaky nail plate , not at all attractive .
I am really having a problem trying to do my nails and to have them look decent , and going to the salon is horrible for me ,,, I hate when they look at me and than have to converse to see if they can actually do my nails . I really hope this works and brings them back to life .

Purple and Pink Mani .

My pink and purple Mani , in honor of my soon to be Niece Natalie . One more month and she'll be here, I am so excited to hold a lil baby again.
For this mani I used Finger paints nail polish in Pen and Ink Pink . I use Konad special polish in Purple. I am not too excited for this manicure though . I think I might change it for the shower.
I tried everything and I think I am just not good at doing my own nails , so I think I might be heading back to salon for a while . I won't stop konading though . But for putting the acrylic on my nails I think I am going to just get it done .
Doing them myself is a lot of work and takes up more time than me going to the salon .
