Grr. I hate the edit function. What should be simple is not. Gotcha. Same deal here. I have gorgeous, thick, healthy nails. Always have. The only time I ever have a problem is if I abuse my nails (as in dozens of acrylic manicures in a row -- not the paste on nails, the file your nail down and replace it with liquid plastic kind) Blech! That took MONTHS to grow out. What was I thinking?
