I've been nursing a bad break for a while. My middle fingernail broke, way down on my nail bed, and I've been patching it until I could grow it out to cut off. Which means my middle nail has been mismatched, often shorter than the others and often thick and wide depending on how well I patched it with silk and gel. Each time I removed my polish I had to re-repair my nail so I am finally relieved it has grown out. It was also a bit painful for a while there. Unfortunately my nails still don't look good. I've cut my other nails down as short as I can but they still aren't as short as my middle (no)nail. I've painted my nails twice tonight and just taken it off each time because it just looks wrong :( Add to that a badly torn cuticle and burnt knuckles and I'm feeling quite sorry for myself and my poor naked, stained, mismatched nubs.
Cue the photo therapy...
