::DANGERS OF BEAUTY:: Growing Your Nails

So I grew out my nails too long. I really really hurt my finger by doing this.. I’m the type that grows out my nails until they start breaking off, but it was never a big deal until recently..

I was thrift-store shopping with a friend and we were heading to checkout when I dropped a jacket on the floor by accident.. I bent down to pick it up and CRACK. My thumb crashed into the floor, jammed, bent, bled and broke.

In one instant I felt soooo much pain!! I yelped and my friend didn’t give a crap LOL. But honestly it really hurt, I immediately looked down at my thumb and my nail broke IN HALF. Like not some sissy “ooh i broke a nail” but actually half my nail was hanging on by a thread. I could see the blood seeping through.. I was like ‘oookay time to go home..’ The whole way home I felt my thumb throbbing.. owwy.. I wanted to cry. It’s like the sting of a thousand papercuts..

Ready to see the picture? I warned you-


Yeah. I had nail polish on so it made it harder to rip off.. I immediately disinfected the wound and put a band-aid on it.. Took weeks to grow back and look like a normal nail..

Word to the wise- take biotin and don’t pick stuff off the floor in a rush.. *cries*

My thumb is fine now but just looking at this picture brings back bad memories..lol. I decided not to show anything too grotesque 🙂

Have you guys ever done something in a rush and injured yourself? lol.. sad but so true.. lemme know in the comments below!

Until next time and be careful growing your nails out!

  1. Glad you’re okay, but that looks bad!

  2. Oh dear! How painful that must have been! I’m also bad about trimming mine before they get too long. They’re naturally pretty brittle so at a certain point (which isn’t very long at all!) they just start splitting and breaking off. I need to just resign myself to short neat nails rather than trying to let them get long then they break and are all uneven.


  3. ooooowww that looks painful! I did a similar thing to my toe nail, I was getting into bed and somehow managed to kick myself in the ankle so hard that my toenail split down the middle. It was awful! Hope your nail grows back soon!

    1. OMG!!! so your ankle and your toe hurt!! you poor thingggg! us clumsy girls gotta get it together lol

  4. OMG I’m crying for you! I know all too well what it feels like to break a nail that badly. And my nails are actually quite thick and sturdy (they don’t bend unless I have been in the bathtub for too long lol) so the breaks always hurt bad. UGH >.<
