My New Year's Resolutions are the usual vague hopes to find a new job, manage my money better, get fit and as it has been since I was about 13, get my nails into a decent condition so I'm not ashamed of them. Its not that I bite my nails, but they are very weak, snap easily and I tend to pick at them when I'm nervous. But at the moment, they aren't too bad which has spurred me onto to taking control of the situation and yesterday I purchased a nail care set and some nail hardener.
Last night I set to work on them, applied two coats of the hardener as instructed. So far, so good. But on reading the full instructions included with said treatment, I fear I'm doomed to fail, as I am what it refered to as a 'Nail Abuser'. I was always aware that I was committing a crime against my gender by not wearing rubber gloves to do with washing up, but I didn't realise that I wasn't supposed to use my fingers to dial the phone, but I should use a pen instead! Does anyone do this? Do they mean on a push button phone or is this referring to the old phones with dials? If the former, than what about typing, if the latter, then they should perhaps update their advice for this century.
I won't be appearing the Guinness Book of Records anytime soon for the world's longest nails.
