Project Grow Your Own Week 3

This is indeed the third week of me growing my nails (despite my other post just being posted the other day).  The astute amongst you will notice there was no week 2.  This is for many reasons, the main one being my general rushing around doing things and forgetting to take a photo.

My nails are now growing at a speed I like, I can see the white bits forming on many of them, which is nice.  I've ditched the "put coloured polish on so I won't bit them" approach as the polish chipped real quick and I didn't like the frequent re-applying.  I could have overcome that problem by applying ones which don't chip but I'm keeping them for when my nails are at a (near) universally acceptable level.

Anyway, I'm now (under the guidance of Jo) wearing just this:
Funnily enough, I haven't had the urge to bite my nails or anything..I'm not doing anything different in life since before biting them so maybe I was just being silly before and biting them for no reason? I ran this idea past the Mr and he decided to keep quiet..

This was meant to be a quick post but succint and my rambling nature aren't exactly a match made in heaven, so, finally, here are the nails:
I'm not sure why I took one photo with the flash on and one with the flash off and why the second one looks a bit vintage but the main thing I'm taking from this is the emergence of white bits.  I even managed to scratch Mr Ross yesterday :)

I can't believe that next week will be week 4 of growing the stumps, I'm quite chuffed with myself.  The single thing keeping me going is the thought of being able to apply Jessica Nails Black Ice which is my current favourite has nothing to do with the fact that it smells like Southern Comfort *hic*

Do you guys think that any of the polishes out there which claim to make your nails grow actually work? Also, I was thinking of getting some of those Revlon falsies.  Is this a wise move or should I just let my natural nails grow on as they are?


  1. Wow, well done! Your nails are looking so much better already :)

  2. I know it's a bit late and all to reply but thanks!
