I use OPI nail envy. Have far fewer breaks now and nails are far less brittle

I use gloves, too, for those tasks.  But if I deal with small mechanical or electrical items, gloves don't cut it, only the bare fingers work, and that means, after a while, the nails go down the tube!


Linde,

Could you use medical gloves?  Those are pretty thin.

Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding. Accepting yourself as the woman you are is very liberating.

I have heard that if you have adequate progesterone in your system, that your nails will be stonger.  Some ladies have progesterone as part of their mtf HRT medicines.  Is that so?


Do you all put on a top coat (not simply clear nail polish, but use a top coat polish, which differs from clear nail polish) to protect your colored nails?


I hear that a clear base coat is good to use under colored polish so that your nails will not as likely turn yellowish.  Do you use these clear base coats?


Chrissy
I do a 3 coat thingy.  The base coat, the polish and the same stuff as the base coat for a top coat!

I used those half of my working life, but they don't cut it for some of the stuff I like to do (like trying to repair watches)

I get a nice strong man to do it for me at the garage

Love Jessica
My son is a mater mechanic, and runs a big shop!  I know what is going on in those shops (my in laws had a dealership, too).  I can do almost all repairs by myself (after all, I have a medical education, which makes sense to work on cars  >:-)), and if I can do it myself, i sure will do that.  I can trust myself better than any strong man in a shop (they are almost all on a flat rate pay scheme)

Watches with lots of complications can be fascinating.

I like tinkering around.  If I had to start over again, I would be an orthopedic surgeon, specializing in hand surgery!

And how do you girls handle car repairs with them nails?   ???

I have a friend who does the car fixing, but I am sporting one torn nail at the moment so my nails are not so attractive just now.

And thanks GordonG

Maybe I should be a bit more adventurous at work.

Love Izzy
It isn't hard at all to make a wish. The difficultly lies in how to make what you wish for a reality

Simple, push through the pain.
I'm stripping an 86 Passat at the moment.
If you take your time be careful there is no need to be braking em in the first place.

That is quite a job!  My son just finished to pimp his 2008 Passat RS 36.  He removed all electrical components out of the engine bay back into the trunk!  I don't see the reason why he did it, but he thought it is cool looking that way!

Just the other day I was noticing how feminine my nails and fingers were looking.  I just had clear nail polish on them, however, I think HRT has done some reshaping on my fingers, and just the way that I was holding my hand to flip some papers, it looked very feminine.

Yeh, painting my nails is one of my favourite things. It has such an instant feminizing impact when done well.  I've never tried acrylic extensions - GordonG - those pics you posted look incredible - and appreciate all the other gorgeous hands and nails on this thread!

I have found that growing your nails longer and polishing or wearing false nails/extensions makes your fingers look longer, and thus more feminine. I spend a lot of time lifting rocks and digging gravel so my "man hands" can use all the help they can get.  ;D

Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything.
Maybe it's about un-becoming everything that isn't really you,
so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

My toenails got pretty messed up as an ALS caregiver a decade ago.
They are finally looking pretty good again!
