Day Twenty--Nails

I was diagnosed with psoriasis quite a few years before it started to affect my fingernails.  Now, I won't get into the particulars about how terrible my nails reacted to the disease, but I will tell you about the BENEFITS I have experienced.  First, my nails are nicely thick.  NOT gross, but thick enough that they don't break easily.  Also, they are STRONG.  I swear I could use my nails as screwdrivers.  And they grow fast--almost unnaturally fast.  I could grow my nails as long as I would want them to be, but these days I keep them at a reasonable length.  Years ago, I gave Dolly Parton a run for her money in terms of nail length.  However, I am much more comfortable with shorter nails these days.

While I will have manicures at times, I find that NO ONE does my nails as well as I do.  I really wish I could be happy with how my nails look when someone else does them, but there always seems to be SOMETHING wrong with the way they are done.  And because I have to have my nails polished at all times to cover up the psoriasis damage, I spend far too much time doing manicures.  Believe me, I wish I could go without polished nails many times.  But even being on Enbrel hasn't completely made my nails look normal.  :(

I wish I could polish my own nails. I always make a mess of my cuticles. I'm better off leaving my fingers to the professionals.

I DO go to a manicurist, but only when I get a pedicure. I still think I do a better job. ;)
