Hiya Claire!

I forgot to say what I do with fingernails, which is about to change.

I have been (and will continue) shaping them as needed with my mom's files, all of which I received when she passed. She had one in every purse and I do now, too, as well as one by my recliner where I also apply hand lotion and rub off calluses.

But now that I am on they thyroid meds my nails grow much faster than they used to and are much stronger. I won't be going in for long nails and paint, because I know I would immediately chip it off, but manicures are going to be added now on a regular basis along with more frequent haircuts. I'm aiming for nails just a tad longer than my fingertips (I do not play an instrument requiring otherwise)-- shaped, buffed and shined.

A nice benefit of a recent surgery is that for the first time in 20+ years I can clip my own toenails. When I get them where I want them I will paint THEM!
