I am in the middle of the third week of Dr Lewinn’s Renunail Nail Strengthener application. This is the fifth week of the whole process. I was only admiring my nails, my historically manky nails, earlier yesterday, thinking about how I was going to post another picture of their new and improved-ness.
They are not only whiter, and less ridge-y, but also stronger. I have been growing them without thinking twice. Until last night, when I removed my left riding glove and realised that my ring fingernail felt funny.
It had split all the way down the center.
Argh! Okay, so, in all the admiration yesterday, I had forgotten to apply the strengthener. Was that what happened? Or had I tempted the fates by letting the nail grow and grow? The riding gloves don’t help matters in any respect, so I am guessing that the confluence of elements — gloves tugging on too-long nail, too-long nail that had not been coated with supernatural strength — resulted in the split.
Dammit. Ah, well, time to file the nails down, and to keep strengthening.
Look, they are not even that long! I bet it is an aging thing…
Well, I am learning the limitations of the product as it conjuncts with the limitations of my own raw material. Still! The improvement is amazeballs.

Ouchies! Your nails do look stunning though, Susan. So much so I was admiring them instead of paying attention to Mr Vichy.
I’ve had similar results with OPIs Nail Envy, it’s as if you forgot that your nails were every stubborn stubby buggers but, just like you, I became lax and was awarded with two broken nails!
I’ve now also pared them back, it’s looking like Mr OPI will be sending his grand kids to college on my dime as I can’t see myself ever not using it. I’m now too used to nice nails. *shakes fist*
I want “magic nails* that are always the perfect length and strength. Dammit! Why must this be impossible! :-D
