My name is Hausie and I am a nail/cuticle biter. That felt good, now the healing can begin.
I have been an habitual nail/cuticle biter ever since the 4th grade. I’m not sure what exactly triggered it but, it’s become an anxious habit. My fingers always look horribly mangled. I’ve tried in the past to break myself of the habit but, to no avail. It doesn’t help that apparently the day in girl school when we all learned to paint our finger nails I was apparently absent.
Last night I went with my friends Emily and Kaolyn on one of their regular nail appointments. I decided to once again attempt, in the name of fashion and health, to give up the nail-biting habit. I got a basic manicure and picked a soft pink-purple color. The woman who did my nails said she would see me next week because my nails are that bad. I also have to decide if I should commit to acrylics because they last longer. I think I’ll stick with the basic manicure and maybe work my way up.
Here goes day 1, no nail-biting. Wish me luck.
