My nails have been really horrible recently :(. No matter what I did they broke, peeled and were generally really weak. So, after weeks of trying to hide them under nail polish, which did not help as it chipped about an hour after application, I have finally given in and got gel extensions. I figured that since they were so awful anyway they can't possibly look any worse! I am so happy I don't have to hide my hands in shame anymore!! They are very short, no longer than my natural nails, but so much stronger.. YAY!!
