The things we do

I am pretty much an old fashioned girl who loves horses, lives in the country, loves camping and outdoor stuff. I love the smell of the outdoors, I don't mind getting dirty or gutting fish and eating it over a campfire. Well, I started something new this last spring that is unusual for me. I got acrillic nails. Or fake nails. However you want to say it. I had started biting my nails (I don't know why) and hated the habbit. I have this, soft nails that bend and tear easy and thought that getting fake nails would help. Well, I have had them for a while now and I love it! They make me feel so feminine. I do get them done pretty short still because I do play piano and guitar which is more difficult now but it is so fun! I love how girly I feel and how much prettier and put together I feel. Isn't it amazing that something so little can make a woman feel good?

My husband is a country boy who would just assume I don't do it but is always supportive. It is a fun thing. I don't know how long I will keep them but I love them for now.

Just know that when you stop getting them done, your nails will be EXTREMELY thin, brittle, and almost paper-like...But I agree that they can be very empowering! Enjoy them! I use to get them done when I worked, but the "thrill" would always wear off at about 3 months of getting them done, and I would find myself picking off all the acrylic to "be free!" (I guess this sheds some light..nope... not a man! ;> )

They are fun, aren't they? I haven't had them for many years because I am too lazy to manage the upkeep ... but they do make you feel special for some reason!

You started biting your nails, because you cut your caffine intake, as well as the tequilla.
