Thank goodness I didn't try to pursue a career as a manicure. It doesn't look that bad but believe, it's really hard to do a good job with dark nail polishes.
I've been trying to paint them often to protect them. I don't have an explanation (the water? the weather? my work?), but my nails have been very weak, breaking and peeling off. Manicure here costs around £10/£20, a no-no for my budget.
