keeping nails

I've been trying to keep longer nails for years, but to no avail. Everytime I tried to keep longer, my nails get chipped too easily, besides my temptation to bite my nails. i tried to lacquer my nails, also the same. now it's super short, shorter than my bf's. it's a pity i have long fingers but ugly nails.

any ideas how to keep n maintain beautiful nails?

pls advise, babes. thanks!!

Re: keeping nails

i guess firstly u have to stop ur habit of biting nails! this is very important, if not ur nails will remain to be ugly lo..

then i think u shld be for some maintenance as well,example trimming of cuticles la, shaping of ur nails la...

may i know normally what'll u do with ur nails? example type with nails,carry heavy stuffs?

for me, my nails will chip near the sides as im used to typing using my nails so it'll weaken it actually,

wat i'll do is i'll apply base coat & top coat/hardener to strengthen it.

maybe u can have a try

Re: keeping nails

i don't bite my nails, but my nails chip and flake off super easily. maybe cause i'd use bleach and detol and cleaning agents to clean my animals cages, everytime i contact with chemicals. ): nvm i love my animals.

anyway, you can try sally hansen's nail products. it's not bad i heard.

Re: keeping nails

sally hansen's products not cheap.. But its worth it, if got effect =)

I usually loves growing long nails, and they tends to break off at the certain length.. I guess too much of carrying heavy items like boxes etc..

Re: keeping nails

bite nails = make your nails ugly and short, so it doesn't look like it grow at all.
crack knuckles = make your fingers look short and fat.

Re: keeping nails

type with nails? nahh.. not even long enuf to type with nails. my only prob is i tend to bite my nails when it starts to flake off, hence giving me a totally ugly sight of my nails.unshapely~ i tried growing them countless of times, but the longer they are, the weaker they became. (cuz i thought the only way to shape my nails is to grow it long and shape it from there)

so far, only my last fingers (both left n right) cen grow long, but not too long.else, it'll become too weak and break on its own..

HELP!!!!!!!!!

go for a manicure!! they'll apply stuff that help you to grow, or they can actually extend your real nails to fake acrylic ones. they take forever but the good ones are worth it.

plus after you pay so much you wont bear to bite them.

Re: keeping nails

I've been keep long nails since sec sch days....

and my DM (discipline master) even commented on them LOL.. "such nice nails but too bad.... you have to cut them off" so yea, i always got caught.


I'm not sure how 'long' is your 'long' though. My longest is 1.5cm (starting from where you can see the nails, not the tip of the pink portion) on my last finger. It's too long and curly so i trim it. LOL. It's quite scary sometimes.... and when they get longer, i feel a bit of pain on the nails.... that's the reason i decided to trim them

I've no secret techniques but just avoid sports like bball, and please dont bite ur nails! That explains the cracks at the corners.
When you sleep, be careful too because certain positions could make you break your nails When you have nothin to do, and if you spot some cracks in your nails especially the corners, just trim them off but not completely. I think the way you shape/cut it is impt too.

Re: keeping nails

my nails chips very easily too..
what's worse is that when i work, my nails get in contact with nail polish removers every now and then.
so the condition is worsen. i have to use nail strengtheners.
but you people can try nail tek products, it has strengthening effect.. not bad.. its works as a base or top coat too.
