Since last Thursday I have been cooped up under ground in a secret facility playing with x-rays. There was some major damage .... nail damage.
My job requires for me to travel to this one special place every month or so, and it never fails, I always come back lacking sleep and usually a nail. :(
This trip was no exception! So lets take a moment of silence, curse the crappy bathroom door and take a look at the damage:
This picture was taken about 2 weeks before the incident. The only other recent picture I have is in profile, see below.
In preparation for this trip and what it usually brings, I filed down some nail growth to the following result. This is just days before the incident.
Ouch! My ego is hurt more than the finger. I wanted to document the actual break, but I was in panic mode and just wanted to fix it. Normally, I would have fixed this break with a soak off gel, but clearly I am on travel and there was no time for that.
That post can be found here.
And a profile picture below.....
Time heals all wounds. Unfortunately, I am scheduled to travel to this God forsaken place again in two more weeks. Great, just in time for the nail to grow back some. uuuuhhhhh!
I think my main problem, besides forcefully shoving my hands in doors, is a lack of flexibility in the nail plate. I need to balance hardness with flexibility. My plan is to not forget my cuticle oil for the next trip.
