Looking Back

Two years ago I made the decision that I didn't want to have ugly, bitten nails for the rest of my life.  That was when I started trying not to bite my nails.

Last year I'd gotten to a point where I could go a few weeks between biting.  The nails would grow out a bit but I was not able to maintain the growth.  One year ago my nails looked like this:

Today my nails look like this:

Right Hand
Left Hand
My left hand pointer finger nail bed may look a tinge weird, but only because I'm using Orly Nail Rescue to stop a break at the free edge from breaking my heart.

A then and now comparison shot:

It's been two months, five days since I last bit my nails and I couldn't be more proud of myself.  This is the longest my nails have ever been in my whole life.  The nail extends past the tip of my finger on almost all my nails (except my ring fingers, they don't seem to grow?).  I can hardly believe it - and they're my own nails!

Oh, and I'll be back to posting more of the 31 Day Challenge soon, just haven't had time to paint my nails as much this past week.
