Unique Nail Tear

Post by DaveLeeNC » Thu May 11, 2017 2:40 am

Was straightening out stuff in the garage today. When I was done I saw that I had the 'tear' shown in the attached picture. Have never encountered that specific geometry in a nail tear (or maybe chip - not sure what to call it). Fortunately it is on my fretting hand so no problem. I just love my eggshell nails :-)

Fix it with some superglue.

Wow... I can't play with nails that long on my fretting hand!

My nails are 'very deep' and that nail does not reach the end of my finger.
