Alien! They look so alien without any polish!!!
I decided to cut my nails down since two of them were beginning to crack (near the nail bed) so in order to keep them healthy I needed to severely cut them. It's been at least three solid months of keeping them reasonably long so it was time for them to go. Plus, as the new year starts I can keep track of how long it takes to grow them based on the new year.
Sad to see the talons go, but it had to be done!
