Did you know your nails can hemorrhage? Does that mean we need a maxi pad wrapped around each finger? Luckily, no. Although I imagine my hands would look exactly the way they do when I'm taking off glitter. ... see Foil Method post and video.
On occasion my nails hemorrhage and so do yours. Have you ever noticed the following? ...
There are medical reasons that cause such things to happened, one of serious concern is fungus, but I am ignoring those at the moment. More typically, my hemorrhaging splinters come from over zealous buffing or knocking my nail bed into something.
I usually don't worry too much about it and just let it grow out. Eventually, it will come to the nail free edge.
Growing out the coagulated blood...
Let me show you the under carriage. lol
Creepy right. You really can pick it off like a splinter. Don't pry at it though.
Notice the hyponychium under the nail. You can learn more about that in this post.
this post for more information.
Next time you pull out a tampon think of your nails ... and how they don't need one.
