...as the new nailform won't last for long you should add some gel to keep it stable.gsilvergran wrote:We have had some threads on this before, where I posted a trick which works great for me. Simply "perm" the nails heating the tip of a tea spoon with a lighter for 5-7 seconds, then gently push the nail up with the spoon ("facing down") and hold it for a few seconds. Just be careful not to touch the flesh and you´ll be fine
Hi, I agree with all that you suggest. In addition I always finish the filing job with something like leather (I use a cheap proprietary equivalents from Boots UK) so that there are NO SNAGS remaining from the scratches caused by glasspaper, diamond file, etc. I check by looking at the edges of the nails with a 10X magnifying lens. I do not now suffer from chips and cracks that I used to.mdc53 wrote:The trick is to file the underside of the nail to create a flat plane. Stop when the file contacts the entire nail at once. Then file the nail straight on to eliminate the bevel you made. Follow with whatever very fine sandpaper you normally use.
Just do a google search of "nails as an indicator of disease" and you will see the first hits are Mayo Clinic articles with pictures of nail conditions, and the next hits are also medical sites with similar information.ElectricLute wrote:Hooked nails I have found over the years a great problem.Its has been my a finger.Ramping helps but I find tremelo almost impossible.Now my i and m fingers are also becoming hooked.I have often wondered if a medical condition is the cause of this since I do have high blood pressure.Any thoughts on this would be welcome.
