I just got a mani/pedi like 3 days ago, looked great! buut I pick at my nails when I am stresed/worried/anxious/ you get the idea. so I was a bad day yesterday and picked off all of the polish on my right hand and absent mindedly picked at the nails on my right foot. so much for being cute today :(

Did you get a gel manicure ? If not, you should. That stuffs pretty hard to pick off.

if she's anything like me, not being able to use your standby method of stress relief would cause more anxiety than the impervious mani pedi would be worth.  picking and picking and picking and never the satisfaction of a flake...

Kind of seems like a habit she wanted to break. But I get that it might be of detriment to her in the moment.

Gel is just a type of super strong, long lasting nail polish,not an acrylic.

The gel is amazing! I bought everything for it and just do it myself. It usually grows out before it chips off.
