It has officially been over a month now since I have bitten my nails and this time, I've had no reason (a.k.a. a wedding) to quit. I've done it all on my own. Determined to kick this habit once and for all. My biggest motivation, I haven't had a single cold sore since I stopped which is a huge deal as this used to be an occurrence at least every other week with a weeks worth of healing in-between. Somehow through the stress of school over the last little while, I haven't given in and I'm counting my blessings for that because so many times I was tempted to. I have even filed them a time or two in the last month which has NEVER happened. The best part about it all is getting to paint them! Before, they were too short and stubbly that anytime I tried I would immediately remove it and think to myself, "what are you doing, trying to attract people to those hideous looking nails?! Not a good plan." I've always wanted to try a colored french tip and I love it! My first favorite thing as of late. And my second, those gorgeous heart stacked rings that Nic got me for Christmas. I'm in love with them. Especially the N+M one. ♥
Now I get daily reminders of him on not one hand but two.
