1. I have terrible anxiety and my fingers and nail beds used to look like straight up scabs from biting and picking
    Sometimes our coping mechanisms from trauma can hold a lot of shame but I'm learning to be loving towards my negatives
  2. In 2010 I tried a nail polish called "Bite It" that tasted really unpleasant
    It worked for a while but when I quit I started biting again
  3. My thumb on the right in high school

  4. I got my first manicure in 2011 my freshman year of college
    At first I would just do a clear coat and get a manicure once or twice a year
  5. I quit trying for a long time but now I need to have attractive fingers as a server in a restaurant
    Glam is better than gore in this (and most) cases
  6. First time doing color polish oct 2015
