Those clear spots are where the nail bed has grown further under my nail. Also, my nails are still "wet" from soaking off glitter using the foil method.
This is .5 to .6 mm of free edge. This is the length I like them at and I don't normally let them grow any longer. I usually file them down to about half this length or else it's hard to type. Currently, I have two nail tears at the moment that I'm trying to grow out. My right thumb and my left ring finger. My right thumb is always breaking; it catches on something and bends back. I feel that thumb nails are not meant to have length.
The break on my ring finger has grown out enough that it can be filed down if I wanted to.
Now the question is? Do I file them down or try to grow them longer?
Do you have problem nail that always breaks or peels?
Thanks for reading!
