Paint That Thyroid Problem

So, I totally can’t find my thyroid pills. This is a problem for when I actually want to take it. It’s the hardest one to remember!

Well, I don’t know if yáll have a bad thyroid, but I suffer from Hypothyroidism which means it doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone. They found this when I first got diagnosed with PH through regular blood work. It explained a lot of things!! Crazy amounts of hair loss, brittle/peeling finger nails, sensitivity to cold and most of all my chunky weight. But being put on Levothyroxin, I lost about 10 lbs in 3 months naturally. I really need to make it a habit of taking this dang medication…

My nails of all are the ugliest! They quite literally peel, chip, break and bend. Forever I use to get them professionally done, but that gets expensive and a pain in the but to deal with. But recently due to pinterest and keeping up with the latest trends, nail polish (doing it yourself) is HUGE. And I understand why!! It’s SO much fun! I do my nails almost 2 times a week! It’s a great hobby, its easy and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Yes, you can tell a difference in expensive nail polishes but you can always go cheap. If your suffering from ugly problem nails, then you need to take up this hobby. You can find all sorts of ideas on pinterest and just by looking around you!!

Things You Need

Nail polish (duh). This should develop into a collection, to have more options of course. 😉

Remover (also, duh.) Seriously, the stuff from the dollar store does just fine.

A Buffer. If you’ve ever been to Sally’s beauty supply, they have GREAT ones! It seems like Walmart and Ulta carry ones that don’t really do any work. Buffing is crucial to your nail health.

A legit nail file. Once again, go to Sally’s. The cute one’s with zebra just wont do ladies! You need a salon one that wont lose its edge after a couple manicures.

Top coat. OH MY this is so important! It makes your polish look shinier, it stays on longer and it dries faster! I use Sally Hanson’s Instadry in the red bottle (its clear though). It’s in a box that hangs up at walmart and its around $4. SO WORTH IT and best top coat I’ve ever used!

Stripers. I found mine at walmart and they are so worth it! Do any design you want, for free. I chose a 3 pack for $7 and got black, white and silver sparkly one. These are great!!

Seriously though, its one of the funnest hobby’s I have and I can get creative and have “statement” nails! It’s just not worth it to pay salon prices anymore. Keep your nasty thyroid nails covered and have fun while you do it!! Best idea I’ve ever had! Here are some of my favorite designs. 🙂 Enjoy, and hopefully yáll can enjoy a fashion Friday this week.

  1. STOP IT!

    You did all these yourself?! You are so talented? I can’t paint the side of a barn let alone my own nails. I have hypothyroidism and my nails peel too. I had a goiter which turned to cancer and have to watch my numbers CONSTANTLY…my TSH among other things. My thyroid problem was initially how my whole health fiasco started back in 2003.

    Be strong with them and I know you can find them! 🙂

    AMAZE BALLS nails!
