My naked nails:
They are yellow from staining, but I won't bother to buff them out because I am just painting them again....yellow! My poor middle fingers won't grow well- I had two major surgeries last year (11 days total in the hospital) and anesthesia is murder on my nails- still trying to recover from menopause! hehe
I pretty much keep the oval shape- it works best for me, my nails curve too much when I try to shape them square.
