Boy, Am I Stupid!

I was visiting with a friend after work today. We were having tea, and Milo kept "hounding" me with a chew toy. I was hanging on to the toy without paying close attention. Suddenly.......OUCH!!! I looked down and saw that he had bit my acrylic nail all the way across - I was bleeding like crazy! To make a long story short and after a very painful procedure, my nail is a disaster and hurts lke crazy. Just a warning - always pay close attention when rough housing with your dog. It was my fault.....not Milo's.....I should have known better after having had three dogs.

Ouch! Be careful to keep it clean. I had acrylic nails for years and gave up on them last year because I got tired up going in every two weeks. I miss the look though!

Owie! I had one break like that when I still managed the antique mall. I was helping move some sheets of pegboard and my finger got smashed between two. It hurts like fury.

Ann, I had to quit getting mine when I went back to working as a florist. I really miss the look as well.

Hope your finger feels better soon...that hurts. I gave up on the nails, I seem to get more paint on my hands than on the canvas when I paint..but they do look good!

Ouch that does hurt.......Love the long nails, had them for almost 15 years. Every two weeks touch up, when I worked in my yard every week. Then one day I decided to let them go. My hands just do not look the same.

I can't even imagine how painful that must be!
I also had them for years and miss the look. I've been looking around for a new place to go lately and get them back on! Heck, I have the time, why not?

That gives me chill bumps! I too had them for several years - took them off permanently last year. Still miss the look but not the upkeep. Will never give up my pedicures though!
