Do you know what I hate? Breaking nails. Actually having the choice to take down nail length is a good feeling, otherwise cursing and wishing I could take back those 5 seconds takes over my whole being.
We can give all the moisturizing love we want to our nails, but if we don't modify simple everyday tasks, nail breaks will happen ... frequently. Trust me, I am the master of breaking nails for no good reason. Hopefully, this post will make you think twice about how you approach door handles, zippers, and countless other stupid tasks that have resulted in broken nails. And if you don't believe me ask any of these lovely ladies how they open a drawer ....
ANOTHER Bottle of Polish?!
Acetone and Old Lacquer
Them Pretty Colors
My Simple Little Pleasures
Am I seriously telling you how to open a drawer ... YEP.
Let's consider the following situations in picture form:
This is the improper way of opening/closing the hinge. As you may imagine, one slip and the thumb nail is a gonner. This is exactly what happened in this previous post.
Also look at this sexy polish here.
BUT! Then you still have to pull the door open or shut. Don't use the hinge to do this either. This should be done like so ....

Not like this.
Is there anything strange that you do to avoid breaking a nail?
P.S. The title of this post was inspired by the hilarious movie... Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. John Candy is AWESOME.
