YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
I was just curious if anyone else suffers from wonky, curly, patchy nails like I do? I have noticed that once certain nails get past a certain length, they start to get a 'wonk' or some even look like I am trying to file them into stilettos. Which I may just try one day if my nails get super long and I want to shorten them. I might just do it to them to see what it would look like on me before I trim them down properly. You never know.... they may be nice on me.

Below, is the nails back to normal.
I have tried all sorts to try to rectify this (polish on the free edges, under the tips, and even moisturiser under my nails) but the only thing that worked for me was to file my nails into an oval shape. I just filed them so the free edge would match my cuticle curve. My thumb cuticle is a straight one but I shaped the nail anyway. An example of my oval nails.
From I have filed my nails into ovals, I have noticed that, not only do they not curl or go wonky but they also don't look ridiculous when they are wet. They only swell slightly now in water and I think, the shape makes my nails look longer. What shape do you have your nails? And why?
So, if anyone else has wonky nails, filing them to oval may just work for you.
Til next time :)
