    nails.....

    ok this might seem like a silly question to some people but i dont know the answer so that is why im asking k
    nails are made of keratin right? and keratin makes the nail grow im talking about finger nails here! i used to bite my nails now i grow them but they grow so fast! anyways my nails are now really long and one of them has broken like a crack so my question is if i dont cut it off will it join together again? i dunno if this makes sense to anyone, last time this happened i just bit them off but one month later its really long again and i dont wanna to cut it off cos i'll end up biting the rest of my nails so yea my question is cracked nails do they join together again?

    no they wont, you could glue it, mine always go really low down and to cut it off is going to be real sore, so do try to mend it to keep it till it grows a little so as not to be so sore

    is it me or was there loads of replies from me then :lol: ???

    to fix mine, i used to rub over nail with nail file, put clear nail varnish on and pop a tiny piece of toilet roll, one layer, once set add another layer of clear nail varnish, or you could cut a small piece out of a unused teabag


    future ref, always best to keep nails at a shorter length, rather than really long

    To put you off I will tell you what happened to my grandad. He is now 76, when he was about 65 he had to have all his front teeth pulled out of their gums slightly, because he had been biting his nails for so many years his teeth were so worn down.

    Alternatively you could ask your dentist for a mouth guard.

    Dab superglue on it with a cotton bud, just till it grows a bit

    i've just cut that one cracked nail off now will find my nail cutter to do the rest i decided its over indulgence biting them all off! i prefer short nails but since i started growing my nails i dunno when i paint my nails it looks much nicer with my nails longer plus OH like my nails long lol
