    I love those colours Toni! Yellow is quite often a difficult colour to work with, don't give up on it though. That Jade Green is gorgeous

    I think it must just be me but I can't find anything decent on that Fragrance Direct. I can only find two rubbish Revlon colours.. I'm confused!

    Edit. Never mind, I'm stopped being such an idiot and I've found them lol.

    he combines postage so if you're ordering more than 1 thing remember to ask for an invoice
    I'm a bit confused by this shop. Can I just add things to my basket or do I have to commit to buy them straight away?

    Well it's just eBay so it works the way eBay works, if they have the new basket function you can add to there and amend afterwards, put items on your watch list or wish list for future reference, or you can do Buy It Now for each one you want and then request an invoice from the seller to get the combined postage.

    I'm sure it's a lot easier than I'm making out lol. I don't get paid until Friday but I'm gonna spend the money then anyway so I might as well spend it now:p I always make justifications like this and this is why I'm always poor lol.

    I was just reading through this thread and i really feel for you. All my life i have bite my nails very bad, they would be a few mm short and very painful. I'd curl up my fingers all the time to hide them. Nothing would work, i had tried hypnosis cds, that grose tasting stuff + being bribed by family lol.
    But about 4 times in the past couple of years i managed to get long nails that reached 1/4cm longer than my fingers
    They are again now very short but im past the craving to bite stage
    This is how i do it, not sure if its a bad way but its the only way which has worked.

    What i figured out is im constantly looking at my nails or feeling them in my mouth or with fingers to find a jaggedy bit. I cant stop the habbit of looking at them. I bought a sally hansen maximum grow clear nail varnish, or anything clear and put that on. It makes a smooth edge on your nails and theres less risk of biting. If that fails i would paint my nails, no matter how tiny, a different colour everyday. I was embarrassed at first people seeing them but then i felt slightly yay i can wear colour at last. Just painting them or rubbing oil into them made me have that extra willpower to stop. Each time you accidently nibble, put another coat on or switch colour completly. I had tried putting fake ones on but i would chew the plastic and the glue really hurts on short nails.

    It takes me 3 days of not biting to be able to grow them. It is grose but my little nail was about 3mm long last week, in a month they will be not embarrasing, they will look like "normal" bitten nails. 2-3 months and i have nails to the end of my finger. Its probably quicker than that.

    Everytime i start to bite them i think i will never get them long again. Its initially will power, i have to become very sad about them and see someone's pretty nails to get me to stop.

    Its the first 3 days for me which are the hardest, after my nails become stronger feeling, so i notice that in my mouth and dont automatically bite. I plan it ahead. Pick a date This is what works for me. It is hard i know :( Just takes a little stressfull event and they all go. But it can be done.

    I used to think, i'll buy pretty nail varnish when my nails have grown as a reward, but i found i gave up easier then. Buy the nail varnish now and use it If only on weekends or by yourself, then switch the clear when around people if your self conscious. With me though, just having them a few mm longer i get more confidence.

    Theres always more varnish to be bought, you can see peoples collections on here lol. Hope this helps
