I'm a cheapass and hate paying to get my nails done professionally, but they just look sooo much better. Primarily b/c I cant get my nails to look all smooth. I have lots of ridges and such on my nail beds. And b/c of my cuticles. SO:
1. Has anyone found a good ridge filler / nail polish primer that really works? The ones I have found are like White-Out and dont seem to help things so much as they worsen them.
2. I have super-strong nails (i know, hate me, i get it all the time), but there is a downside: CUTICLES. I can GROW some cuticles people, and its GROSS. They are huge! I get how to push them back, but then I have a little wall of skin, eww. And if I try to trim it w/ nail scissors or those a cuticle trimer but despite my best efforts, I still get hangnails and its awful. Whats the solution?
