Nail Trauma.

In December I bashed my nails really badly, I was in pain but didn't think that I had done any damage to my nails as they had not broken.

For the next few days my pinkie finger nails felt tingly, kind of like pins and needles. Over the next several days I noticed that the nails had become detached 3/4 of the way down.

This freaked me out as I had never had anything like this happen before. I did some research online and read that nail separation is quite common for Ladies with long nails. I cut them as I was worried I would catch them on clothing and do further damage.

Over the next several weeks I noticed my other nails had what looked to be air bubbles in them. If I gently pushed down on them the air bubble moved around. YIKES!!!!!

The nails  having grown out a bit out separated like the pinkies.

Not a good look at all!  So now I keep them short and covered with polish, that way they don't look too bad.

Hard to believe they are the same nails. I saw yesterday that some of the nails are not attaching as they should but separating further. I will keep watching and hoping or a Doctors visit may be in my near future.

So Ladies with long lovely nails, please be careful as this could be you too!


  1. Eeks, I hope your nails are better now! But I do love the polish you put on them. =) Great blog. New follower. It'd be great if you could check out my blog too.


  2. Thank you, sadly nails are not 100% yet! May have to go see a Doctor about them. Will gladly follow your blog.
