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!
