Twilight Breaking Dawn comes out at midnight

And here's what I did on my nails today, well so far I've only done the left hand but whatever lol. Breaking Dawn comes out at midnight tonight. I would go but people will scream whenever something happens, so I will just wait and go later in the day sans screaming girls.

I got the design pretty much from the daily nail I just changed the thumb. Overall I'm pretty impressed with myself. I think these came out pretty good. Sorry about the pic I used my phone.

Polka Dots & Accent Stripes

Here is what I did on my nails last week:

I used Zoya Jolene, Zoya Malia, Sinful Colors Paradise, and Pure Ice Super Star. This is super easy to do if you have a dotting tool or something else that can make dots.

Essie Lady Like

I don't know what came over me to buy this. I thought it was a purple I guess. I don't know, sometimes I have color problems it seems. But before you take this post negatively(I'll admit it is sounding like it) I suppose I should say that I actually like this color. Surprising!

Essie Lady Like is a neutral which is why I don't know why I bought it. I'm not usually one to wear neutrals because I am literally the whitest white person ever. I gravitate towards bright colors and I'll admit I wasn't even going to put this color on. My friend technically picked it when I gave her a few options for what I should put on my nails.

Anywho, I put one coat of this on my nails, and again I will admit I almost took it off after the first finger. After the first coat was on I was like 'I need to do something to this so I'll like it'. So glitter it was! After the second coat I put a coat of Wet n' Wild Hallucinate over it. And just like that I actually liked the color! It's amazing what glitter can do!

I couldn't get a decent pic of the glitter from my phone and I would use the camera but the batteries were dead and I couldn't find the batteries. But I do have a pic of just Lady Like. Even after a few days I still like this color. It's really growing on me.

I have a few questions...

I ended up cutting all my nails back down :( I know, I've turned into one of those girls that cries when she breaks a nail(although i don't cry, it's more getting mad and depressed). But hey, it takes a while for them to grow back! Which brings me to my first question.

What do you guys use when your nails break? Do you just let them grow or do you use the special polish? I've tried a few and I'm not entirely sure if they worked because I put polish over it and never took it off and 'repeated steps blah blah blah for 10 days'. It just feels weird to not have polish on all the time. Should I just get over it and follow the directions or not bother and just let my nails grow?

I also have nails that peel. I again, tried the special polish. Still couldn't tell you if it's worked because I didn't fully follow the directions. But I can tell you that they still peel. What can I do to get them to stop? Is it because I always have polish on?

One last question, this one is for my mom. Her nails have been breaking really far down. Like REALLY far. To tell you the truth I'm glad it's happening to her and not me because then I really would be a girl that cries when her nails break. They don't break all the way off but enough so that when she pulls her fingers through her hair it gets caught. Is there something she can do to repair the break so it doesn't rip off her nail? What could she possibly be doing that would cause it? Has anyone else had this problem? I just feel bad for her and want to help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I also have half a post done at the moment. I just have to put more batteries in the camera so I can get a good picture of my nails. Maybe this weekend?
