Nail shape & Milani Digital

Hi Kids!
Yay! I fixed my nail shape!
My natural nails are flat and triangular in shape...meaning-  My nail bed from the cuticle starts out with a slight, rounded curve, but quickly goes flat and fans out at the tips. They are very unattractive, bordering on mis-shaped...and that's my un-injured hand, the hand I use for pictures. My right hand is that and more. Due to a crush injury, they have ripples,dents, un-even growth and curling at odd places and angles. A challenge for trained nail techs, and a nightmare for my un-trained self.

It hasn't been easy for me to create consistent, "good nails". As you all are witness to- they don't always look good, and that makes me very sad....Doing the Happy Dance today, because I think they look great!


























In order to get a curvier nail, I have to build-up my nail bed. Unfortunately, this makes for a very thick nail. Something I just learned...If I add some more length, it gives my nail "time" to transition/taper to a thinner tip.

































































Milani Digital- 3 coats

I think your nails look great! The shape is really nice. For being "untrained" you do a great job!

Question: Do the Milani holos make for good stamping?

I have to say your nails have never looked better! The shape is very attractive.  Will make for even more gorgeous manicures.  I'm also loving the Milani polish.  I just got the Metal collection and Flash collection yesterday.  Each polish is so pretty.

I love your nails , you do such a good job for not being  trained tech ...  I seriously thought you were a nail tech /make up artist .... Do you put acrylic over tips or sculpt them?

What was the crush injury that you had? I've always wondered.
