ASK Cosmetics TNT Challenge - Week 7

As much as I was loving the length my nails had grown out to last week, I wasn't happy with the shape of my nails. By shape, I mean the rounded tips. I prefer a more square tip, not completely square but as my old manicurist called it, a rounded square. So this week I started shaping my nails toward the rounded square shape and also shortened them a little bit in the process. I am still applying T.I.P.S. once a day in the morning and using the Contour Nail File several times throughout the day. I also use the Revival Hand & Nail Cleanser when I wash my hands and the Revival Skin conditioning Milk in between hand washing through the day. On a side note, I am so impressed with the Contoured nail file I bought 3 for Christmas gifts for some of the women in my family. Normally, I wouldn't by someone a nail file for Christmas but this will be the last nail file they'll ever need.

Nail progress update, I haven't broken a nail in over 3 weeks. I haven't torn one in over 5 weeks. They feel TONS stronger than when I started this TNT Challenge. I actually opened a soda can with my nail the other day without thinking and cringed. It always used to tear or break the nail off. Not this time, it didn't even start a little one. I am so excited!!! My cuticles are also becoming more healthy every week. I am no longer getting so many hangnails, I still get the occasional small one (usually when the weather takes a drastic change - like warm and sunny to freezing cold and rainy with 60-100 mph winds). The little hangnails usually heal up in a day or two. Some of my cuticles are beginning to recede on their own, which is just awesome! Mostly because they have been driving me nuts with wanting to shove them back with a tool, but I've been a good girl and have left them alone. With just five more weeks of this challenge left, I have to say I am officially impressed with the results I have gotten so far.

On to the pictures...

Much Love, The Dragon Lady
