But laziness kicked in and I grew tired of constantly grooming my nails to keep them in perfect condition and so I caved and had a full set of acrylics applied. No pictures I'm afraid as I didn't take any at the time, but since having the removed my nails currently look like this:
I left this image pretty big so you can click it to enlarge and as you can see they are in pretty bad shape. They are probably 1/4 of the way grown out, and the rest is thin, patchy and weak. Now I'm not one to cry over spilt milk - the acrylics looked great, were super easy to maintain (for me anyway, I can't speak for my manicurist!) and I will probably get them again at some point, but for now does anyone have any product recomendations to help even out the surface so polish sits a little better on them?
