This post might seem a little bit weird. Just think of it as learning the quirky little things about be. Then you can tell people that we're besties because you know some random facts about me. So today we're going to talk about fingernails. Weird, right? Yesterday I bent my fingernail backwards and ended up breaking it. I don't care what guys say, it freaking hurts when you do that. People should be more sincere when they say "oh no, you broke a nail." It's like yeah, I did, and it hurt real bad because this thing that grows out of my body just was bent the wrong way and then broke, so what if it makes me maybe want to cry a little bit when it happens. It's called pain people.

Anyway, my fingernails grow pretty long naturally, but they do this little weird thing. Don't ask me why I thought to post this, but for some reason I decided to. So my pointer finger nails do this really weird thing. You can't really tell just from looking at it head on.

See you can't even really tell can you? Well, let me show you a I can't even think what kind of view that would be...Let me show you another view so you can see what I'm talking about.

Do you see how it downturns on one side? Isn't that kind of weird? It sucks because then as it grows it becomes more and more weak as it leans to one side more and more and then finally, one side gets a crack in it because it's bent to far. I think it's genetic or something because my mom's nails did this too, and my sister's do also. I kind of like that, that my mom's did it also because then I get something that was definitely from her. These pictures were taken just over a month ago, and I cut them right after this picture so they wouldn't bend back and break, so I took another one of my nails today since they're already long again.

Can you see how it's bent even more? It already has a sliver in it so I'm going to have to cut them. Sniff Sniff.

Alright, I'm done with the weirdness about nails. How do you like to keep your nails? I'm not much of a nail polish person. Although one time I got a manicure with red nail polish and my nails looked so chic and fantastic. I was bummed that when I tried to recreate it for my photoshoot it didn't work out. Seriously, go back and look at the picture where we're holding the S and H and you can see they had already chipped from doing it a day earlier. Dumb nail polish. Check out this blog. Isn't that crazy? How does she do it, someone please tell me!

I have to keep my nails cut under 1/2 inch and can't have polish or acrylics.. so uh, mine are boring! But when I'm not working for a while I love painting them different colors :)

I don't have the patience to paint my nails (almost wanted to write to nail my paints! whoops...good morning to me!), so if I do it has to be either clear or light white or something shiny and cute so no one would see when the colors slightly chipped. ;)
I love my nails long, however they don't always grow thick and strong so I need to keep them shorter than wanted. Mine are usually an inch long, sometimes longer sometimes shorter. And believe it or not, one of my nails does the same thing like yours. Can't remember which one so I need to grow them again in order to find out.

I can't get my finger nails to grow out! I hate to admit it, I bite them!

Sam, I have a crazy nail too! My ring finger on my right hand - the nail grows at an angle, like instead of straight out from my finger, at a 45 degree angle, so I have to file my nail to look like it's straight, so it's long on one side, but not on the other. So I have to use nailpolish. For the last 6 years I've done acrylic nails, but after having James I don't have the time, so now I just paint french tips every saturday.

I have same problem as you & your sister & mom. Naturally long nails but in my forties now... and have this new bent nail thing going on with both index fingers. Exactly like your pic.
