I would have to say the same for french nail tips. I tried to peel them away on my own so I could practice strumming on my guitar.
My nails, the bits that are left, look like they went threw a wood chipper. I have tried soaking them in acetone, filing them with an emery board, and picking at them with my teeth to get them off. I have mutilated them down to nubs.
Now I feel bad for all the times I was bored and put a piece of duck tape on the cat's paws to watch them spaz out.
Blonde just got hit with karmic retribution!
