Stupid Fake Nails!

I hate fake nails. Think they look trashy. They belong on Jersey Shore... but thats about it. lol! HOWEVER this is just my opinion. I dont judge others for having them and Im sure some are nice.

So... apparently I never told DH about my distaste for fake nails... because for xmas he got me a gift certificate to get them done. I didn't want to disappoint him, so I got them done and had them on long enough for one fill... and then I had to get them off. HATED the way they looked. STUPID!

Now Im left with brittle nails and Im wondering... Is there something I can do to improve the appearance of my nails until they grow out? I have been buffing, using nail oil, been keeping them somewhat short, and using clear polish because my nails are so brittle color chips and peels too easily). Is that all I can do for now?

Just need to wait for your natural nail to grow out. I'll never have any kind of tip again.

Take a vitamin e supplement maybe. I also don't like fake nails. They're pretty on other ppl, but they hurt and get in the way.

couldn't you have just gotten a regular manicure? On your real nails?

I don't know though. I would just keep them short until they grow out.
